    Man, there is something called depth. It's obvious the Rams want him or we wouldn't have tendered him. Who cares if Curtis is a 2 or a 3, either way we are going to need him this year, so I don't see how you can even justify that the Rams don't want him.

    So we give up a proven WR to get the 31st pick of which we have no idea who we draft and how they will turn out?

    Unless Seattle offers something we can't or don't want to match, the 31st pick is not worth it for Curtis.

    Re: Pickett leaves/Hawks after Curtis?

    My guess is that the Seahawks won't offer Curtis a deal that the Rams will be unable or unwilling to match.
    I hope the hawks don't make us over paid for him. I know we would get a 1st round pick, but it looks more like a early second round pick to me.

    Re: Pickett leaves/Hawks after Curtis?

    No one in the Seattle media has reported that Curtis is even on the Seahawks' radar.

    Not to say it's not a possibility, but right now the Seahawks are thinking of trading their 1st round pick to NY Jets for Abraham.

    Curtis would not likely be on their scope. They have looked at nate Burleson; he's from Seattle where he went to HS and he's only a 3rd rounder as opposed to Curtis' 1st tag.

What I'm saying is, Curtis needs to learn more from veteran players, and a guy like Bruce can help A LOT along with Torry. And I think Curtis is the most talented WR we got at the moment (other than Bruce and Holt)

    Re: Pickett leaves/Hawks after Curtis?

    Why wouldn't Seattle go after Curtis? They can't do any better with the 31st pick in the draft at WR, so why not just trade it for a proven commodity, and upgrade their receiver core. It's either Curtis or Keyshawn, and that's an easy decision unless you're the Raiders or something.

    And they just learned a lesson from the Vikings. They are going to guarantee that Curtis makes as much as any receiver on the team, or guarantee he is the highest paid receiver on the team in 2006, or whatever.

    And we can't match because of Bruce and Holt's $$$.

    I heard Holt doesn't even get paid that much, he isn't a greedy guy whatsoever

    My guess is that the Seahawks won't offer Curtis a deal that the Rams will be unable or unwilling to match. Perhaps Seattle knows that, and will offer Curtis a contract just to force the Rams to spend more to retain him.
    Thay sounds familiar, humm......

    Re: Pickett leaves/Hawks after Curtis?

    If Sinorice Moss is there at #31, I wouldnt mind letting go of Curtis. Moss offers a lot of upside at a younger age and can be used in the same way as Steve Smith or Santana Moss.

    That being said, I love Curtis and I hope he stays a Ram.

    1 - The Seahawks have Nate Burleson in town [he is from Seattle] and all he would cost is a contract extension and a 3rd-rounder. No Seattle media reporter has ever mentioned the Seahawk are interested in persuing Curtis.

    2 - No one knows if the Poison Pill aspect to any contract is legal in regards to the CBA. We'll all know more once Sunday night hits because the deadline for Seattle to match is Monday. They'd also have 10-days to take their claim to an abritautor.

    I agree that proven talent is worth more than potential talent...especially if you're picking at #31.

    Re: Pickett leaves/Hawks after Curtis?

    From what I've read, it looks like the Falcons have a bit of an edge in getting Abraham, but the Seahawks have offered their first round pick.

    Burleson would seem the better FA receiver anyway, but I hate losing up an coming players to Free Agency. It sucks. I don't even believe in the whole theory of going with the younger guy anymore because as soon as the young guys start to produce, they become free agents and you lose them.

    If the Falcons get Abraham and the Seahawks do not sign Burleson, I could totally see them going for Curtis.

    They have made a habit of picking up players from the Rams. It's smart. Helps them, hurts us. Double wammy. I'd trade my pick at 31 for a proven commodity.

    Question: Why didn't we sign Curtis to a long term deal? And he's not a franchise or transition tag, so do we for certain have the right to match?

    yes, he's a Restricted Free Agent, not an UFA. We tendered him at the 1st-round level.
