Re: Rocky trade is a possibility

I think the best we can probably hope for is to package him up with another player, on his own I don't see a team giving up much to get him.

Re: Rocky trade is a possibility

Reading Mel Kippers article from the Washington Post, it looks like there is Haynesworth, Campbell, Rocky, and Laundry all on the trading block. I just hope we end up with at least 7 or 8 picks someway.

maybe we feel we can get a 2nd rounder for him..??? maybe get somebody like Spikes??? Not sure.

Re: Rocky trade is a possibility

Rocky is a good enough NFL linebacker, but I can't necessarily see a team that he would go to and start for, which limits his trade value.

If we released him, he'd get signed pretty quickly, but not for too much more than his tender offer.

Yup, not even close. I'd say more like a 5th.

Re: Rocky trade is a possibility

While I'm sure plenty of teams value Rocky at a 5th round pick, I doubt that any team will be willing to pull the trigger at that price. He's not getting an extension from that team, so what they are essentially getting at the price is a one year contract with a CBA dependent option for a second year.

Re: Rocky trade is a possibility

So who are we looking at as a possible trade partner. Only team I can think of is the Saints. Maybe the Eagles if we want to keep this "all in the division" thing going.

Might or might not, but when you make that draft pick, it comes with 4+ cheap years, and when you trade for Rocky, you get one. Which is the reason that if we shopped Rocky to all 31 teams, 27 would say they aren't interested in him at any price.

With the remaining 4 teams, it's all about deciding if the price they are going to give you is worth not having Rocky on the roster for this year. If the best offer you get is a seventh rounder...maybe you don't do that. Maybe you do. We will see.

Well, I would argue that 1) you are correct, and that 2) this is Mike Shanahan's shortcoming.

This is also why I predict Rocky McIntosh will not be traded: we can't a nice return for him, so why not just let him play out the season here as (if nothing else) a nickel defender who can replace Fletch on third downs.

This is opposed to what other team fans do with asking for second and third round picks for guys who we've never heard of. I mean if you think our bad you should see all the wonderful "forum offers" for Cooley that are out there from fans of other teams. It's like random player A, random player B, and a 4th round pick. Maybe we'll get lucky but I'm proud that our fan base is straying away from thinking like they're playing Madden. God knows they do it in so many other areas.

I'm guessing he's a 5th round value, at best.

Re: Rocky trade is a possibility

Come on now Rocky is not even an average NFL LB. I would trade him ,but what are we going to get for him, a 5th rounder? I can see getting a 4th rounder at best for Rocky. He isn't all that bad, but it is a stretch to even call him average still.

Simple trade for a lower round pick. WE can get a LB that is learned in the 3-4 scheme.
