Default Starks Trade Rumor

I've been a reader here for a while now, and finally got around to registering...anyway...ProFootballTalk.com posted a story that theres talk in league circles about the Cardinals trading the 5th pick in exchange for Starks and the 15th pick. While it is all just "talk" at this point, I'd love to see this happen. At worst we'd pick up Gaines Adams, or we could even get lucky enough to grab Peterson. AP and Fast Willie in the same backfield, wouldn't that be one heck of a two headed monster?....Anyone else have thoughts on this?

We don't have the cap room to sign a fifth overall pick.And just so you know,PFT is a rumor mill and about 95% of the stuff off that website is complete crap.

If we were trading anyone from our o-line,I think it would be Faneca because he's gone after this season anyhow.

rumors aside, this is a good topic. ive thought about if we should trade faneca but not starks. i browsed an arizona board yesterday and alot of their fans seemed more interested in getting a tackle than a guard. leinart is a leftie so right tackle is a little more important than left tackle to protect his blind side.

i think if arizona could turn the #5 into starks and a de like a. carriker it would be a hell of a move for them. theres also rumors arizona wants to do a 3-4 and karriker is in the mold of aaron smith.

i like the prospects of a player like gaines adams, or we would have the option to trade back down and acquire more picks. this years 2nd round is said to be deep and we could find a good linemen or 2 still there to help replace the loss of starks.

It's like I found a distant cousin.

I have my doubts as well. However, if the Cardinals are that stupid, I'm all for it. I'd give Max up any day to move up 10 spots.

we do have the cap room for a #5th. rookie money is all bonus plus the minimum salary that counts against the cap. regardless of where this rumor came from, starks is a restricted free agent an can easilly be gone with faneca next season.

I would not take this as a load of crap. Although I believe it is Faneca that the Steelers want to trade for that pick. I think that's why the Steelers gave Starks the 1st round tender money, so that teams would have to choose between Faneca and Starks (seeing they would have to give a 1st round for either, Faneca would likely be the choice, leaving us the younger and cheaper Starks).

I would think that if we lost either their pay would come off the cap. Signing an OLB, even a 5th pick, should not be that costly (if it is Gaines Adams their after). Signing an OT with the 5th (such as Levi Brown) IMO would be more expensive. I'm estimating this using franchise tag $$. Nevertheless, I don't believe either would be over the $1.8 mill Starks is scheduled to make nevermind Fanecas salary.

Starks is probably being mentioned because we would probably want a 2nd round pick in addition to the 1st round swap for Faneca.

I do believe we will see a draft day trade unless Joe Thomas is still on the board, in that case Arizona would most likely pick him. I would also not rule out a trade with another team (maybe Houston).
