Re: RUMOR: Skins Want To Deal Devin Thomas

Doubt anyone would give up much in return. 6th or 7th rounder at best probably.

Re: RUMOR: Skins Want To Deal Devin Thomas

Raiders?


Colt Brennan return?




Actually, we'd gladly take their punter if they pay part of his ridiculously-high contract. The Raiders have both the highest-paid Kicker AND Punter on their team.

I'd rather not see this happen. He's a talented depth player even if not contributing yet. If Moss or Armstrong go down, he could be very valuable. Not sure that Banks can play WR full time at his size.

If we do trade him, I guess T. Austin would be promoted.

Not necessarily bad, but hasn't shown much on the field unfortunately (or taken much advantage of opportunities). I'm sure some team with need at WR depth would take him for a lower round pick.

Likely scenerio that T.Austin could return.

Re: RUMOR: Skins Want To Deal Devin Thomas

After watching Brandon Lloyd climb to potential pro bowler, with more yards then 99% of the NFL, I must say I'm a little hesitant to deal DT if for nothing more then he's a monster on kick returns.

Re: RUMOR: Skins Want To Deal Devin Thomas

I personally don't like DT's atheltism. He runs straight lines like Forrest Gump and his lateral agility is pretty poor.

The guy may be fast but only in straight lines. You force this guy to shift directions and he starts to show his lack of atheltism.


Trade this guy for a pair of shoelaces and call it a day.

I don't think you should evaluate players you keep like that. What I want to know is is Devin Thomas not good enough to get on the field with Banks or Armstrong on the roster? If that's the case then I would trade him. Plus Thomas is doing so well returning kickoffs.

Maybe Banks has arrived and is taking over? I saw that they didn't put him out there in second half.

Re: RUMOR: Skins Want To Deal Devin Thomas

At this point, it makes sense. Thomas may light it up somewhere else. That's how the cookie crumbles but, a former 2nd round pick contributing only on special teams is essentially a waste. Let's hope for at least a 5th rounder. I'd be ok with that.

I understanad your frustration but, never devalue your own. They'll need as many picks as they can get next year.

Re: RUMOR: Skins Want To Deal Devin Thomas

He looks pretty good on returns, but yes, if he's only doing that, then if we can get something for him I'll trust management on this one.

To the non trained football eye DT just looks like a good football player. I guess if Mike S is having a hard time w/ him maybe we can get something in return. And, yes we need draft picks. Preferably good draft picks.
