    Darren McFadden a ram?

    Hello all,

    I am never one to really address rumors and speculation but I have heard repeatedly from different sources (espn, blogs, etc.) that talks have begun with us and the raiders to trade one of the first rounders we have next season for Darren McFadden and a later round pick in return.......If this is the case
    1. do we want to do this?
    2. is it worth it?
    3. How would everyone react?
    4. How would this impact our team overall?

    I was looking to see if others have stumbled across this and what everyone thought on the matter.

    I haven't seen this anywhere, and frankly, I wouldn't be surprised if it's only fan-blog speculation in wake of the Richardson deal.

    I think there is zero shot that we are trading a first round pick for a guy with that type of injury history.

    I've searched around, and got nothing, other than this thread. Like bruce4life said, maybe you can provide a link to one of your many sources.

    Even if anything like this was true, I wouldn't be surprised if he got hurt on the flight here.

    Finding no hint of a rumor of the Rams looking to acquire a RB. If this was a true rumor I would be concern since the Redskins pick is looking very nice right now. I know the season is early but that defense is being out scored in the first half 50 to 7 wow.

    Re: Darren McFadden a ram?

    I would not like the move at all even if there are sources or not...Just don't see why we would spend a 1st rounder (which could be anywhere in the 1st round) for a veteran RB that has had his share of injuries

    Also we havn't really seen Daryl Richardson he had his 1st career start a couple games ago and last game we were in catch-up pass mode the entire game...So until D-rich and the rest of them prove they cannot handle the ball I dont think we should be considering trading a 1st for a RB

    1. no I would not like it
    2. It is not worth it (even when we draft we can find a good RB later than the 1st)
    3. I cannot speak for everyone but I would react negatively until proven wrong
    4. It doesnt change much on the team as far as gameplan goes because all we have seen is Bradford light up opposing defenses which is refreshing.

    Re: Darren McFadden a ram?

    At most I wouldn't mind giving up a 3rd round pick for him. Since he seems like a valuable weapon for the Raiders, they'd probably be asking for more.

    Re: Darren McFadden a ram?

    To clarify this original story, on espn orlando last night they were talking about it but I was unsure where it started etc. After a lot of research all I can seem to find are twitter postings about it....with that being the case I do not believe it. So what stone cold originally said was not the bottom line.

    A refreshing and sobering Bottom Line to the lordling of bottom liners... thanks for the info matey!
    And for the record I would be opposed to picking up DMac for a first or even a second! As noted by other posters I am sure they want much more for one of their best players when he can get to the field...
    Good luck to the traitors in finding a taker for that deal, praying it is not us!

    Re: Darren McFadden a ram?

    So, Stone Cold said something which Stone Cold didn't say was so.

    So, Stone Cold is just like us.

    I'm gonna have to think about this..
