I am certainly hoping that the Rams will have someone signed before the first day of the draft, I don't know if that helps or hurts the Redskins cause, I just like to have that first pick out of the way.

"Strategery"

I agree that it would be a close-to-draft-day deal. The Rams are currently talking contract with Suh, McCoy, Bradford and possibly Clausen. If the Rams want McNabb, then it means they plan to take Suh or McCoy with the first overall pick. Executing (or even acknowledging) the trade now would limit the teams leverage in getting the cheapest possible deal from Suh or McCoy.

On the flip-side, if the Rams really want Bradford, then leaking rumors about the potential trade and then publically denying it puts pressure on Bradford to sign a below-market deal, since if the Rams dont take him, the first chance for him to get drafted would be #4 to the Redskins. If the Redskins passed on him, barring a trade, he would fall to the Browns at 7 or potentially the Bills at 9. Last year, Matthew Stafford got about 42MM garaunteed with the potential to earn 78MM over 6 years. Mark Sanchez got selected 4 spots later. His contract: 28MM garaunteed. If Bradford doesn't sign with the Rams, he's going to lose atleast 10MM. With the rumors circulating that the Rams might be interested in McNabb, its in his best (financial) interest to make a sweetheart deal with the Rams to ensure he's the #1 overall pick.

A one word synopsis of everything I just said: "Strategery."

A couple of months ago the McNabb to Vikes rumors were really, really, really strong. But they've since died down

Re: Rumor: Eagles and Rams Finalizing Trade Involving McNabb

There's always the chance that talks were strong but the extension couldn't be worked out. Who knows.. certainly looks like he'll be on the move. Minny would've been good but with the whole Favre thing I wouldn't do it if I were him/his agent.

I think they strongly expect Farve to come back. It will take a horrible year or a Super Bowl Victory for Farve to retire at this point and I believe the confidence in Farve coming back is part of the reason they're so calm about everything right now like "yeah take as much time as you need Brett." If they felt he was going to retire I would expect the tone to be different.

Re: Rumor: Eagles and Rams Finalizing Trade Involving McNabb

I just heard Adam Shefter say the Rams have no interest in McNabb. He said they had expressed interest in Kolb, as had a lot of other teams.

Re: Rumor: Eagles and Rams Finalizing Trade Involving McNabb

McNabb>Gradkowski, but not by nearly enough to make the compensation they would have to give the Eagles worth it.

However, from a practical standpoint, it is one more guy between Russell and the field.

Pro bowls? Really?

Any time you can package two un-elite players in a trade and get an elite performer, you have to do it.

I love both Carlos Rogers and Jason Campbell, but if I could package both of them for Nnamdi, I would have to do it. Likewise, Samuel and McNabb are both valuable players, but it's better to have the elite guy.

Not only that but the Eagles basically give up a franchise CB for another franchise CB then throw on a franchise QB for no reason what so ever. How is that even remotely logical. That makes the CP trade a few years back look genius on the part of Gibbs and Company.

Re: Rumor: Eagles and Rams Finalizing Trade Involving McNabb

Although, as long as you can use arbitrary titles, I'd argue that any time you can receive a superstar running back with elite blocking skills for a malcontent corner and a second round pick, you should do it.

The key is to phrase it so that the players you are receiving are always franchise-changers. Even if you're just getting McNabb and Samuel.

This time of year there's always a lot of misdirection and subterfuge circulating around the league. Some of it deception, and some of it just plain lying and false information. Nonetheless, for some it makes for good speculative discussion.

Re: Rumor: Eagles and Rams Finalizing Trade Involving McNabb

there's no way the rams will trade for 32-yr old McNabb. It doesn't even make sense. He'll get traded, if he's traded, to a contender or a fringe contender (Vikings, 49ers).

The 49ers makes the most sense because they have 2 first round picks and can add 2 contributors and probably get away with trading away a 2nd round pick for Mcnabb.

I understand the point but who wouldn't trade Campbell and Rogers for that guy? McNabb and Samuel are on another planet compared to our guys.
