Default Re: Would You Trade Wallace for Flowers?

I'm not suggesting that Mike gets resigned and then we just stumble on a possible trade partner, but we'd work with the Chiefs on negotiating a contract they deemed fair and wouldn't mind taking on.

I'm not asking to bring him back, quite the opposite. If this is a possibility - which, I honestly think it is - we'd have the best secondary in football. Period. If we draft well, too, we could possibly be looking at a defense very similar to the '05 Steelers - dominate in all facets of the game.
I got what you meant.

I was just pointing out that achieving a trade is difficult enough... adding the extra burden of trading a player who has to "agree to a franchise tag/agree to a new contract" before he can be traded is doubly as difficult.

That said, if Faulk can rush for 1,000 & receive 1,000 and still be traded, then ANYTHING can be done.

Again, I like the idea.

Disgruntled for disgruntled = win-win.
