His commitment is to roids, not the team.

Re: Ramsey for Abraham

Profootballtalk.com is reporting that John Abraham has been traded to the Broncos for a first round pick.

Why the hell would they do that? Give away a 1st rounder for a turd who sat on the bench because he didn't want to injure himself before becoming a free agent? They had a high-priced, elite DE in Trevor Pryce. Plus, Pryce was a team leader. Finally, they're going to have more trouble negotiating a deal with Abraham than with a 1st rounder.

Bone-head move if you ask me. But, then again, maybe profootballtalk.com is full of it ... again.

i agree it'd be stupid. calling pryce and elite (pass rushing) DE is a stretch though. JA is a big upgrade in sack count, but he's a whiny b*Tch. pryce was good, but not for 8$mill+ he would be paid this season.

Would this be OUR first round pick that we sent them for Campbell?

Supposedly it's the Broncos pick (not ours). But, no other news outlet is reporting the deal. Perhaps PFT isn't as credible as I thought.

Thumbs down Re: Ramsey for Abraham

Bad, Bad idea! Why are we even thinking about this? What value is really left in Brunell after the second half of the season! I hope he (Brunell) recovers and is able to positively contribute but I think that he should start or back up and move up Ramsey and or Campbell to take over in the future!!!!! Please Redskins keep Ramsey, you won't regret it!!! Think of all you have invested in the guy already! He is still that raw talent that Gibbs and Co. can develop into a star hopefully in the future!

Unfortunately, Ramsey is as good as gone. I'm sure a deal will be done by this Sunday.

Re: Ramsey for Abraham

Profootballtalk.com is reporting a story from JetsTV that Abraham has been traded to the Broncos for the #29 pick...

"ABRAHAM TRADED TO BRONCOS?

A.J. Vaynerchuck of JetsTV.com reports that the New York Jets have struck a deal to ship defensive end John Abraham to the Broncos in exchange for a first-round pick.

We're in the process of trying to confirm the report.

The Broncos hold the 22nd and 29th picks in round one. Vaynerchuk believes that the 29th pick is being sent to New York.

Our guess is that the Jets might then try to dangle the two first-round picks in an effort to jump up even higher in the draft, possibly as high as the No. 1 overall spot on the board. The Texans could be tempted to make a deal, since it would enable them to snag a guy like tackle D'Brickashaw Ferguson at No. 4, giving them another first-rounder later in the day.

NFL teams use a chart that applies point values to draft picks for trade purposes. Under the standard draft pick valuation chart, a No. 4 and a No. 29 wouldn't be enough to justify a trade up to No. 1, and the Jets would have to throw in another pick or two, if they indeed intend to make a run at the top spot.

The Jets slapped the franchise tag on Abraham a week ago, and Abraham has made clear his desire to get out of New York. The Jets have been shopping him for the past few days.

If the report is true, the Broncos' decision to cut on Wednesday defensive lineman Trevor Pryce, running back Mike Anderson, and tight end Jeb Putzier makes plenty of sense. The Broncos needed to clear cap room in order to absorb the new deal that Abraham undoubtedly will sign with the Jets, after putting his John Hancock on the franchise tag. The Jets then would trade the new contract to Denver.

To avoid a cap hit for the Jets, the deal undoubtedly will include not a signing bonus but an option bonus payment due within a few days after the trade is consummated, putting the entire responsibility for his cap number in 2006 and beyond (if there's a cap) on the Broncos. "
