That depends for which teams, I suppose; it would be better for us to use the 2nd pick on any O-line position, instead of giving up for a RB which we already have something similar with Alridge.. I know he isn't proven and all, but Shanahan really likes this guy - he was the one who recommend Alridge to Vinny.. Or at least, we can try to sign Sproles if we want something else than Alridge.. But as for for other teams, I could see Bengals or Broncos (a better version of Kevin Faulk?), or maybe even Chargers pulling the trade..

I really like what the Redskins have done today. If the players are complaining, then you did the right thing for the team.

If we get any of the corresponding draft picks for each player, I would not be unhappy at all.

If we got a second for Heyer, I would pound a six pack and hit on 20 year olds because it must be my lucky day.

Boy is Rogers a crybaby. If Hands of Stone had played better he would have earned an extension a while ago.

Hell, a pick 6 in Seattle would have made him a legend but he literally dropped the ball.

My guess is that even thought Rogers was tendered that he will be traded for a 3rd and another lower pick. He's unhappy and the Skins don't want to keep an unhappy player. Maybe Rogers for Cromartie?

or maybe they tell him to shut the hell up, stop whining and go earn a contract, and he listens... wishful thinking I guess.

Such a dynamic rewards player loyalty with organizational loyalty. Is this not true?
Face it we're the Real Madrid of the NFL. Read over this and tell me if this sounds familiar.

Jet's are extremely interested in Antonio Cromartie

Antre Rolle is asking for $8 million a year which is more than Troy Polamalu, Ed Reed, and Adrian Wilson.

And the Cardinals are shopping Boldin for a 3rd round pick, the catch is that he wants a new big deal which the team willing to trade their 3rd has to get him or else he'll be pissed.

It starts with a 3rd rounder but he'll most likely end up going for a second. It's kind of like the $20 auction game. At the beginning a person puts a $20 bill up for auction for people to bid. The catch is the highest and second highest bid have to pay. Everyone starts out bidding but eventually the bid gets above $20 and people start thinking about minimizing their losses. I learned about that in "How to negotiate Rationally."
The $20 auction and the dynamics of conflict « Confluence: Ben Byerly's Muddy Mix

Quote:
By the time the auction reaches $19, most bidders drop out. The person who had bid $18 will invariably bid $20 to break even. Presumably, that would bring the auction to a close, right? Wrong! One professor who utilized the Dollar Auction as a teaching tool for more than 20 years said that the bidding will usually continue well past the $20 mark.

Consider this case in point, a day the professor will never forget. He used the dollar auction while teaching a course for executives in organizational behavior. At the end, the “winner” paid $54 for the twenty dollar bill. The loser paid $53. The rest of the class watched the futile bidding war with bewilderment and glee. (Proceeds would be donated to charity).
So whats the point? Well when you have an attractive barter chip and it starts out at a low price more people are willing to take a long hard look at it, eventually more bidders leads to an increased price. In short, asking for a third rounder in exchange for Boldin is very smart.

Boldin for a 3rd Denver wants a 1st for Brandon Marshall, and both want new contracts.
