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.

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

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.
