I'm w you, Brian is one of our few play makers on the whole team. If we do it'd better be for a 1st

If we coul replace orakpo with a free agent, why wouldn't our trade partner just take that free agent instead of trading is anything for orakpo?

I am sure (and I hope) that the team would do their due diligence and look into this if they were to sign him. I know there are head cases in the NFL, but when you've been flagged/penalized for fighting a few times, I see that as a problem. I know he's a good corner, but maybe there is a reason why the Titans are willing to let him walk.

Maybe they lack the money a large-market team like us have and can't afford to get into a bidding war over that position.

As far as I know it's not a WR, but I don't want to jump the gun and say anything. I'll let you know as soon as I know.

Salary cap? Rak cheaper? Various of reasons why.

I REALLY hope the trade doesn't involve Orakpo. Take DeAngelo Hall instead!!!

Or why would we go with an older more expensive FA (such as Mario Williams)?

Could be Cooley.

I HATE the thought of losing him but his salary vs. output has been suppressed since Davis emerged, plus his injuries. May be the time to get optimal value for him.


Man, losing him and Landry would be a bittersweet offseason but the team is moving in the right direction.


I HIGHLY doubt Orakpo will be traded away. If it's D-Hall, we'll have a huge task at restocking the secondary at CB and safety. I'm not sure we'll empty out the defensive backfield like that after trading away so many high draft picks.

I would be very surprised if it's Orakpo. I think that ship sailed.

Or it could be Fred Davis? Cooley sadly has very little value to other teams in my opinion but Davis is younger healthier and faster and showed he has big play ability. I know Shannahan has said he likes him but that does not mean that much.

Possibly a dlineman? It's definitely our deepest position group.

Cooley will have a good year now that he actually has a quarterback. Not a pro bowl year but he will be respectable, both him and Fred Davis should do very well.

^ I hope so, having BOTH of them on the field with any capable QB, let alone a stud like RG3 is a huge asset.
