Re: Doug Gabriel

Adam Schefter reported that Reggie Williams, Michael Clayton, and Chris Chambers might be cut or traded in the last two's case. Miami wants to get rid of Chambers because he has a huge salary and a huge cap hit, and they are cap strapped. Tampa Bay wants to get rid of Clayton because he hasn't done shit since his rookie season.

He won't be...Del Rio said he dropped him on the charts to motivate him, he will likely be the #2 in Jacksonville.

The very same.

In all fairness (Reggie Williams aside...see my last post) Chambers would be GREAT for us. I do not want to pay his salary though, and he likely would be on EVERYONE's sign list. Clayton still has good talent, but we have people in his mold.
In both cases, they are a product of horrible QB's. You CAN NOT play well when you have a poor QB. See Randy Moss! (a slew of others too) So they could resurrect their careers with a change of scenery.

Re: Doug Gabriel

No to Gabriel. But we do need a possesion receiver in the worst way. However, no possesion receiver is better than a bad one.

Re: Doug Gabriel

I was listening to ESPN radio on XM while I was on my way to lunch, and they said Chris Chambers is on the trading block. Now THAT would be interesting. They'd probably want a 3rd rounder for him at least though.

Well, we don't have the cap space to waste on him, so unless Miami was willing to cover the majority of his salary, we are out of this race.

Chris Chambers : Rotoworld.com - Chris Chambers Biography from Rotoworld.com


Chambers is staying put for the year. We wouldn't want him anyways...mainly I'm talking about Gibbs...he's trying to rack up a criminal record along with football records.

Never said I wanted him, never said we should go get him. Just said it would be interesting.

Gabriel would be way cheaper and serve the same purpose.

It'll be hard to trade him, but they are trying nonetheless...

HA! That's funny. Chambers is overpaid, but I think they'd be foolish to put all there eggs in Ted Ginn's basket.

Never said you did, just making an argument for the possibility of us getting him, or not.

You might be right, but Chambers has proven himself, and Gabriel hasn't.

Oddly enough, I looked up their hieght and weight, and I didn't know Chambers was only 5'11" 210lbs. If we're going after someone, we need someone with hieght!

Re: Doug Gabriel

I would absolutely bring Gabriel in for a look, it can't hurt. Doug Gabriel is a better option at #4, or #5 WR than anyone we have on the roster currently.
