If those kind of deals take place, I'm sure a team that needs a Safety, ROLB and DE would give up a fairly high pick for one or two of those guys.
amen. sometimes its not about winning its about selling tickets. you get a troy and it draws interest and sells seats.

i think Troy and Harrison have one more good year left. I would say keep them.

if we can find takers i would say lets look to trade these players:

Heyward
Hood
Woodley
Taylor

Harrison will be cut though and that will eliminate the getting rid of woodley.

Heyward is only in his second year and is still improving - there's no way I trade him. As for Hood and Woods, I don't get rid of them either. We need to start using Hood effectively and we need to give Woodley a year to rebound after his injury marred 2012. I also don't trade Taylor as he's a true shutdown CB in the NFL and showed that against AJ Green and Torrey Smith earlier this year. All but one of those guys are under 30 as well - we don't need to unload the young talent, but we do need to unload the older guys.

Now, if we're talking about trading Troy, Keisel, Harrison and the possibility of Clark depending on who we draft, then I take those deals. A team with cap room that wants to trade for defensive talent and make a run for a title would be interested in at least one of those guys. Package two or three together, and we have a high pick involved now. You say they have one good year left and I say they're taking up 20 million dollars in cap room - we don't restructure that for future cap room hell. We cut that shit out right and restart with two young safeties in the backfield and a young pass-rusher to play opposite Woodley.

We're thinking the same way, just not with the same players haha.

Who in God's name will be starting on the DL if you trade Heyward and Hood?

Some of you people need to relax. This team is not getting dismantled because they went 8-8 after two straight 12-4 seasons.

Woods, and McCLendon??? Now that should scare the snot out of a few OCs......

Actually this team is going to be dismantled period, and not because of an 8-8 record. We could have as many as 21 new faces for 2013, and could have 20 players next year who's contracts expire in 2014...... Better yet, this isn't a great draft coming up, and we don't have the cap space to bring in upper level FA talent......

These people are spazzing over 8-8, are going to LOVE the next couple of years......

This is the best defensive draft we've had in a long time. It just worked out that we need defensive playmakers and we can find them in every round this years draft. On offense it's weak, you're right, but this draft is all about defense.

we need to get DE's who fit our system, thats who. We have a 1st rounder who gets blown off the ball on running plays and another who cant get on the field and cant crack the line up over Hodo who is underachieving and an aging keisel.

So you rather have 2 square pegs playing in round holes? if we get value, i am not saying give away, these guys we can look to fill those spots with more appropriate players.

I went through the 60's..... really!! When I was in highschool, I played the halftime show for the OJ Simpson Bowl vs the Eagles. People today just don't get that over the last 40 years we've been treated to some of the best football ever played.

the 2014 free agents of note
Clark-(34)
Keisel(35)
Cochery (31)
Hood (25)
Worlds(24)
Wood (25)

are the only players that actually play.Plus Keisel and Clark will probably retire.
Hood want have to much demand
Woods the same
Worlds could be signed to a reasonable contract.

Heyward was a solid plug to fill in for Smith, but we need a Keisel replacement if he leaves then. Hood is NOT the answer. Clark, same thing, I say draft a Safety this or next year. Hood is a solid backup, keep him. Worrilds and Wood, eh, who cares.
