    Okay who do we trade Bruce for?

    I like Bruce but we suck at to many positions and WR is the only one we have depth at so how would you use Bruce in a trade?

    Would it be for a draft pick or a veteran?

    What position would you want an OL, TE, DE, DB, and LB?

    What type of value do you think we could get for him?

    I would think we could get a high 2nd round to low 1st round pick for him.

    But my preference would be to go for some one thatís proven in the league either at DB or DE. We need to improve our secondary and we need to get to the QB more.

    Keep Bruce, unload McDonald, get a trade for a CB or LB and a 2nd or 3rd rounder...

    yep he'll retire before he goes anywhere. plus bruce is old and does not have much trade value on the market except for maybe a 4th rounder..... he needs to stay a ram and retire here

    You wouldn't get much for Bruce, his salary would be an issue too if traded..

    Seattle and Indy couldn't even get first rounders for Alexander or James. In my opinion, there's no way we get a Day One pick for Bruce, considering his salary and age.

    That said, the trade deadline has passed, so the earliest you could trade him is the offseason. So I'd wait, see what we can address in free agency, and if we have a clear need going into the draft, try that route to either trade and move up or trade for a veteran.

    You're not going to get a day one pick AND a player for our fourth string wide receiver.

    Trade Bruce? No way. He got us a superbowl ring and deserves to retire as a Ram. I think McDonald could bring some value as trade bait, he seems to have been forgotten lately on our O considering we have 3 great receivers ahead of him.

    Re: Okay who do we trade Bruce for?

    I like Bruce and if we are not going to get much for him then yes it would be wise to keep him. We have very few players that we could trade and WR was our deepest position I think Bruce if healthy again could play another 3 seasons at a high level.

    I don't believe any player or coach deserves to retire with a team. If the team needs to move him they should do so these guys make millions. I would not feel sorry for him. Look at Warner, Rice, or Emitt Smith. I have the utmost respect for Bruce but I feel more sorry for those players that put so much into trying to live the dream and either get injured or cut before realizing their dream. They get very little money at all.

    Why do we think the superstars deserve to stay with a team when they have been paid millions already and have been taken care of for life?

    The highest value we could hope for in return for Bruce or McDonald would be a 4th-7th round pick, or a player equivalent of that talent area. Might as well keep them and save the depth.

    Because Bruce could have left the team when we were awful in the 90's. He stayed though and helped us get to a Super Bowl. Without Bruce, I dont think we win the Super Bowl.
