    Ok, gears are turning ... how about this move?

    Rams send the following to Cincinatti Bengals who are in desperate need on interior DL help:

    1st Round Pick No. 2
    2nd Round Pick No. 2

    Bengals send the following to St. Louis:

    WR Chad Johnson
    1st Round Pick No. 9
    2nd Round Pick No. 9

    This would allow Cincy to pick up Dorsey, and maybe still leaves Ellis or Gholston available for us if we want DL help. What does ya think about that?

    Isn't Johnson the jerk that shaved the jersey number of an opposing cb's number on the back of his head for exposure on national tv, only to be schooled by the guy during the entire game? No thanks !!

    Gholston appears the type who will put up big numbers at the combine, thereby increasing his stock and diminishing the possibility of lasting to the ninth pick ..

    Re: Ok, gears are turning ... how about this move?

    Well, I'm not sure we really need Chad Johnson as much as we need Dorsey or Long. And if we move that far back (I know it's not that far), we might not be able to land someone that would be a significant upgrade on the D-Line. It would also be contingent on reworking Bruce's contract and probably cutting Bennett. I guess it's a possibility, but I really can't see it happening. IMHO, I think I'd rather see us land Long. if he's as good as everyone seems to think he is. There is also a reason that the Bengals don't want an extremely productive receiver like Johnson anymore.

    We couldn't afford Chad Johnson and Drew Bennett (unfortunately) at the same time. Good idea to get a top notch WR, but logistically it just won't work. We screwed that up last year with Bennett.

    The last thing I want right now is another aging wide receiver.

    thats the first time i have ever seen Chad Johnson's name used in the same sentence as Jack Youngblood and hopefully the last.

    to answer the original question with Bennett we can't afford another high priced receiver and his personality really doesn't fit with the guys we have now.

    Re: Ok, gears are turning ... how about this move?

    I think I'm going to copy this post, and paste it as a reply every time I see someone talking about (speedy) wide receivers. If Bulger has 1 more second to throw, our receivers can get separation, and if he doesn't, it doesn't matter.

    We have Stanley, Hagans and Hall - all fast enough -who can all 'sorta' catch.

    Sorry, wide receiver, is our least pressing need.

    Likewise with the secondary. Funny how much better our LB's looked this year with a couple run stoppers up front, and this will carry through to the secondary with a pass rush. (Possible exception: Safety)

    DL, OL, OL first three picks. Not glamorous or exciting, but desperately needed.

    Johnson costs too freaking much to afford. Though the trade would be a good for a receiver, I prefer to have a defensive player instead of another wide receiver who will put us in a cap salary burden.

    Stanley and Hagans, as Vegas mentioned are fast enough, for sure. Hall? I'm not too keen on using him except as last WR resort.

    I've been quite optimistic about Stanley and Hagans / Hagans and Stanley. True, it's another situation of unproven players but I just "feel" they might be our secret weapon(s) as upcoming WRs for our Rams.


    Chad Johnson, no ... for most of the reasons already mentioned.

    Guys this isn't Madden OK?





    J/k-I am just saying it first because inevitably someone will as in all trade proposal threads. Sounds like an alright deal for both teams, but I agree with others posts that we have much more pressing needs than WR.

    You're right RR. I'd like to see us develop Hagans and Stanley. I think they are diamonds in the rough. For sure we don't need "ocho-stinko".

    Re: Ok, gears are turning ... how about this move?

    Sure, WR isn't our biggest need, but we don't have any proven talent that isn't 1) banged up or 2) a potential cap casualty. Needing multiple offensive and defensive linemen does not preclude doing something to bolster our aging WR corps.

    And, I highly doubt that all three of Hall, Hagans, and Stanley are on the roster next year. It increasingly sounds like Hagans' chance came and went last season. If Hall isn't healthy, there probably isn't much point in keeping him either.

    All that said, just say no to Chad Johnson. If we didn't, that trade doesn't give us enough value to make it worthwhile.
