    I would much rather sign Jared Cook and keep the draft pick you give up for Finley.

    no I say we resign Hartline and sign Jennings or Wallace none of these recievers in the draft are worth the 12 pick

    I question whether it will be necessary to trade for Finley but regardless I believe my reaction would be this:

    I thought signing Bowe with precious FA dollars was bad enough, then it got worse when guys started talking about spending money AND a draft pick for Finley. Maybe we could bring back Brandon Marshall and Chad Johnson. I also hear Jeremy Shockey, Terrell Owens and Albert Haynesworth are looking for work. We could get Vince Young to be our new backup and trade for Santonio Holmes!

    Make it happen, Ireland!

    Better hope Finley is motivated to earn a bigger contract, Jennings stays motivated after overspending for a 30 yrs old with diminished production, rookies are rookies, and wheres the defense?

    Your point is received but keep in mind we don't have enough draft picks to fill all of our needs. We do, however, have quite a bit of money to spend on free agents. I doubt anyone is suggesting that we target the players you have listed and I certainly don't feel a guy like Jennings falls into the same category as the likes of Shockey, Owens, Haynesworth, etc. News is slow and fans are looking for anything to stay engaged in an interest. No need to blow it up for them.

    What are you advocating giving up to get Finely? Please say Daniel Thomas.

    I would be very happy as long as its a late round pick for Finley. I think he could be available for free though which would be even better. I would be ok with Patterson at #12 if he has a good combine but would love to trade down to the 20s and go BPA. If Patterson is there then great. I would also be ok with taking bailey with the 2nd of our 2nd rd picks. If we managed to still get Patterson with a trade down, draft both players. Jennings, Patterson, Bailey, Bess, and Matthews would be a great WR core. Finley and Clay as the TEs would give us mismatches that would give D Coordinators nightmares!!!

    No to trading for Finley, take him if released, other decent FA TE's out there, or draft one in 1st 3 rounds ..
    Jennings/Wallace - either one works for me, vital for our off season to get one.
    No to 1st round WR - not in this draft. Thinking CB or DE at #12. Maybe even trade up for Milliner.
    Draft WR +/- TE in 2nd or 3rd rounds

    Trade Daniel Thomas and a 4th for Finley. GB can't pretend their running game is good right now. They are cutting Finley anyway so that can bring the pick value down.

    We can resign Bush. Him and Miller should be sufficient with Jonas Grey to get the job done on the run.

    Leave Finley where he is, sign Jared Cook AND Fasano back. Then the rest is perfect. Jennings, CP and Bailey :up:

    I would absolutely NOT trade for Finley. If GB lets him walk, then I would say sign him but no way should we give up a pick for him. I know Cook is a hot name on this forum, and I would love to have him, but I don't think he will be available. Keller is a good option IMO too. I really want Jennings and would love Patterson.

    No trade for Finley. If he comes free, different story.

    I'd let Brian Hartline walk and sign Greg Jennings for near the same price tag. I would also see if I could make a play for Domenik Hixon of the New York Giants.

    Then I would head into the Draft looking to pick up two players. Cordarrelle Patterson would remain on my short list at 12 overall but not necessarily be the top guy on it. There are players I would rather have. If I do not take Patterson at 12 then I would look to circle back to the position at 54, seeing whether Stedman Bailey, Markus Wheaton, Terrance Williams, Quinton Patton or Tavon Austin are available.

    Then later in the Draft (perhaps the 5th round), I would target Marquess Wilson of Washington State.

    Patterson has everything minus the hands to be a top 10 pick. No doubt i would take him at 12. I was calling for Ty Hilton last year and look what he did his first year.

    Why would they trade for players? when there's equal value getting them as free agents? they don't want to give up draft picks

    Same reason we traded for Bush. To prevent the player from hitting the open market. Finley is 25 and a potential playmaker. He's familiar with Philbin, the offense and would fill a void at a position of need. If you can get him for a later pick, why not?

    Everyone is hesitant to give up a draft pick but how many times have we used those picks on untalented players? I'd give up as high as a 3rd but if they're really trying to part ways I'm sure he could be had for cheaper.

    Jennings Hartline Swope Matthews Bess

    with a sprinkle of Binns

    If Matthews climbs the ladder and you have a guy who is buddy's with Tannehill from same offense, why doesnt this in and of itself not work?

    Yeah, I would love to have another good WR in this draft but isnt it more about guys who fit and get the system moreso than talent alone? Thats how I am beginning to see this. Remember, Philbin says he doesnt have an alpha receiver, he has multiple guys who can play the system.
