There are no realistic trades. Maybe Gamble to the lions for a 6th round pick.

I like Williams, but if we could trade him for a 6th round pick and let the other team take the cap hit, we should take the deal and be happy with it. Same with Gamble and Beason.

see if the raiders will take on the contract of one of the guys we will potentially cut (beason, gamble, dwill, ect.) and trade him straight up for terrelle pryor. most came-like backup we are going to find (obviously he is NOT cam), and would give us another offensive weapon to play around with. him and cam are the same age, so he's young enough to groom. it serves as SOME value where little else is available. if armanti was pryors size, he would already be the backup and we'd have traded clausen for a can of pringles last season...add pickles to the pryor trade.

None of the trades are realistic.

Very, very few player for player trades happen in the NFL.

There is absolutely nothing realistic about those two scenarios.

Well run franchises don't trade talented players at crucial positions for the likes of RBs and LBs (especially injured ones) because of how easy it is to find good players in those positions working at your local Food Lion down the road. Hence the reason we have such a surplus-they're easy to scout and the previous regime didn't want to take chances on players that could possibly *GASP!* bust.

I was going to say the same, teams know gamble will likely be cut but a 6th is a fair price to avoid a bidding war.

Brandon Marshall fetched 2 3rd round picks. If you're wanting a realistic trade for Nicks, it probably involves us giving up our 2nd round pick this year.

His cap hit is around 2.5 million next year, but then he becomes a FA and could be looking for big money that we may not have. Giving up a 2nd, while having to give out a big contract the following year for a guy who has had some injury concern...would be a tough sell.
