The Chargers don't have a legit #2 WR (Gates doesn't count since he's a TE) and yet they make the playoffs almost every year.

I'm just curious, what specifically do you want the #2 WR to be able to do that none of our guys can do?

We will trade a QB before we trade a
RB, unless is someone below our top 3. ( DWill, Stew, Sut)

i can think of a couple WRs that are on smittys level... what i CANT think of, is a WR with more Passion and drive. thats where he gets his edge


Yeah, that is sort of what I was getting at. ;)

things i wouldn't mind....
trade sutton to the 49ers (to replace glen coffee) for josh morgan.
trade sutton to the packers for jordy nelson
trade sutton to the texans for jacoby jones

zod doesn't have a bad idea here. not sure why so many people are freaking out about this idea.

Some of us have officially built a personal friendship with Tyrell Sutton, and would be absolutely irate if they traded him.

He's kicking my rear in another game of Words With Friends as we speak.

I would trade Goodson before Sutton. I think he has higher value too.

Shh, don't let them know our true reasons!

keep sutton!! hes gonna be our replacement when half of double trouble gets hurt! i say open up a spot for a USFA. There has to be one out there somewhere that can do the job reasonably well.

I'm way too concerned over Stewart's health and Goodson's effectiveness to be willing to part with Sutton.

Z, I don't quite understand what you're saying. On one hand you seem to be saying that we need to get a young Smitty "replacement", but on the other hand you are throwing out a line with Sutton on the hook, and expect to get a WR who has fair market value equal to Sutton, who is in no way equal to the value of Steve Smith in his prime.

What do you think that we're gonna do, continue to throw shat up against the wall and hope it sticks (kinda like this thread)? If we're going to get a Smitty-like receiver, we are probably going to have to acquire him in the draft (and knowing our FO, it's probably going to be with the following year's first round pick).

Sutton right now is a good young player with a huge upside. I would want the same in a WR. An immediate #2 with the possibility of being the #1 over time, like Sutton.

I wouldn't mind that but I can guarantee you none of those are gonna happen.
Receivers are investments, they take a long time to groom.Guys like Sutton are a dime a dozen you can find them on practice squads all over the place and they can have an immediate impact.

Think of recent impact RBs that were undrafted or were on the streets recently:

Fred Jackson (2010 starter)
Pierre Thomas (2010 starter)
Ryan Grant (2010 starter)
Cedric Benson (2010 starter)
Justin Forsett (2010 starter)
Arian Foster (2010 starter)
Ricky Williams
Mike Bell


I like Sutton and all, but he has zero trade value.
I am not sure whats worse, how much Sutton is overvalued in this thread, or how little a young groomed WR prospect is valued.

Sutton's trade value isn't there. Nobody is going to give us a legit #2 WR for a 3rd string RB.

I don't mean that as a slight to Sutton at all, he's a really good player for us. I hope like hell we keep him.

Edit: dksmith beat me to it and said it better.

That is exactly what I said in separate threads but couldn't quite pull together to post here. :P


Actually, I posted that we couldn't afford to trade DWill because Stewart would then be an injury away from not playing at all (a few days old thread). Adapting that to this thread... I can't see us trading any of the RB's because of possibly injury problems.

I think you undervalue Sutton. He has came out and gave his all at both RB and FB, and has done brilliant at both positions. Dime a dozen my ass; I don't even know if he has lost more than 10 yards on his carries.

This trade sceniro is an interesting concept but I feel the Panthers will go with what they have.

If a trade could have been arranged and worked out before this years NFL draft,then yes i would have been all for it.

Seemed most thought the DL was the big worry and WR could be taken care of in the draft.
