Re: Falcons Agree to Trade Hall to Raiders for '08 2nd Round Pick

I don't hate Talib (or Cason) the way others seem to, but looking at the big picture I think we're better off taking a CB in the 2nd/3rd round (Godfrey?/Thomas?) and worrying about other needs earlier.

Maybe something like Merling, Godfrey, Scheuning? Balmer, Rachal, Thomas? Hard to say really. It may be a little clearer if we sign Hackett.

I just worry that taking a CB in the first round hurts our chances to get good talent in the mid rounds, whereas there is some pretty solid depth at CB in this draft that we can wait a couple of rounds and still get a good choice there.

porter may be up in the 2nd, godfrey might last till the 3rd... hard to say. also in the third jordy nelson or dexter jackson might still be there too (for the comp pick).

merling/harvey, t laws, godfrey, nelson would be a great haul (and we could grab zuttah and mcduffie at OL late, but obviously we can't hit on 5 positions with 4 picks).

I tend to agree. We don't need an uber talent at CB. This defense relies more on matchups and just about any team we play I think Springs can cover their 1. So we're looking for a guys who has decent raw coverage skills and a brain. That could be found in 2-3 rather than taking a marginally better player in round 1.

Do the falcons enjoy losing? First they lose their offense in Vick. Now goes their defense in Hall. 0-16!

PFT.com, Who knows.....the soap opera continues.

HALL TRADE FALLING APART?
Posted by Michael David Smith on March 17, 2008, 7:17 p.m.

There are conflicting reports about the trade to send Atlanta Falcons cornerback DeAngelo Hall to the Oakland Raiders.

Over the weekend, the trade was widely reported to be all but signed, sealed and delivered. Today Steve Wyche of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported that the trade is nearly final.

But Hall himself denied that the trade was close. And Adam Schefter reported today on NFL Network that the sides are not as optimistic that the deal will get done as they previously were.

“It doesn’t look like, right now, this trade is going to come to be,” Schefter reported today.

The Falcons and Raiders appear to have agreed in principle that the trade will consist of the Falcons sending second- and sixth-round picks to the Raiders, but the Raiders are only interested in consummating the trade if they’ve worked out a contract that will keep Hall happy, and right now no such contract is in place.

If a contract agreement is reached, Hall will be a Raider. If not, this trade isn’t happening.

Rod Woodson said the Redskins and/or Cowboys would be a good fit for him if the deal falls through.

Raiders were going to get 2nd and 6th rounders and give him a big ASS contract.

Well seeing how we're doing the safety dance this year in FA, I highly doubt we'll get him then.

NFL Network reports that this trade MAY not go down, according to that little loser Adam Schefter.

Welcome home buddy.
