Betts, James, and Horn

been nosing around and have some little tidbits to throw around. heard a rumor about a possible trade with the ravens. Ladell Betts for Ed Reed, with a draft pick thrown in. Erasmus James will play the second half in this weeks game against Carolina. and Joe Horn was released today. any thoughts? sorry no links, because im not computer savvy enough

Re: Betts, James, and Horn

If this is a joke it's a bad one. Why would the Ravens trade Reed?

Re: Betts, James, and Horn

Been nosing around.....where did you hear that rumor? First I've heard of any of this and don't believe a word of it.

I don't see LB or ER going anywhere. Joe Horn was released, who cares.

On a positive note if James is playing, which I would not doubt...but this is the first I've heard of that. That would be nice to see him get some action if he's ready.....

Re: Betts, James, and Horn

Betts and a draft pick for Reed? Um, er, huh? I'd believe that just as soon as I believe Reed for Betts and a dozen draft picks.

I don't doubt Horn could be released. Atlanta is clearly building through youth, a trait Horn does not possess.

I have mixed feelings about EJ playing against Carolina. I would hate to rush him if he's not ready further risking aggravation to his knees. However, if he says he's a go and the trainers say he's a go then I'm a little psyched to see if the 1st round potential is still there.

Just caught that, but thanks.

-- JAMES TO PLAY

Erasmus James is expected to play in this Saturday's preseason game against Carolina.
James has continued to increase his practice workload. He is coming off knee ligament surgery last December when he was with the Minnesota Vikings.
"He will play some, probably not until the second half," Greg Blache said. "You will see him get some snaps."
James is battling for a backup job on the Redskins' roster. He is competing with second-year player Chris Wilson and rookie Rob Jackson to be the fourth defensive end.
James is a former first-round draft pick of the Vikings. He has five career sacks.

Nosing around. Is that slang for snorting coke? Man I need to get back on the streets. Anyway rumor doesn't make a whole lot of sense. The Ravens have McGahee and they invested a 2nd rounder in Rice, who they seem to like a lot. Betts is also close to the wrong side of 30. Unless that draft pick is a first I doubt the Ravens would even consider.

Re: Betts, James, and Horn

I wouldn't trade for Ed Reed. Sorry. He's still a beast...when's he healthy. But the guy can't stay healthy. I wouldn't do it.

Damn dirtbag...I thought you where already on the streets..?

I think it has a little something to do with drugs or someone was on drugs, kinda like the rumor thing.....

Anyway, now that you mentioned it line me up.....:cool-smil

Re: Betts, James, and Horn

Who are the Ravens going to get to replace Ed Reed? Jim Leonhard? Haruki Nakamura? I don't think so.

I hear we were going to trade Vinny Cerrato for a box of chinstraps and a cheerleader to be named later. I say do it!
