  • Trade Talks...

    Well guys its official, ESPN reports that we are shopping....

    Alex Barron, LT
    and....
    Randy McMichael, TE

    It would seem that O.J. Atogwe and Steven "The Beast" Jackson are safe now in part due to the fact that we supposedly asked too much for "The Beast". However, it seems that we are also asking too much for Barron as well. It is just as many of us thought, we moved Barron to (LT) so that we could use him as Trade bait. Guess we'll see what happens, remember guys the trade deadline ends today at 4pm.

    *As a side note, I'm actually pleased overall because I really thought that we were going to trade "The Beast" to the Patriots, but I assume that after their offensive showing on sunday (althought it was against the lowly Titans) they aren't worrying about protecting Brady with a sound running game/feel that they already have one in place.

    If a trade for Jackson to the Patriots happened you could pretty much guarantee that the Rams wouldn't win a game this season and you could also give the Patriots the Superbowl so thank god that didn't happen.

      I wouldn't say its "official" merely because ESPN is talking about it. It could merely be a case of one of their writers thinking it is a good idea.

        Where did ESPN report this? On air or in an article? If it's the latter, can you copy and paste the segment so we can see how "official" it looks?

          Nick, I'm hurt & disappointed that you would doubt me. I'm watching SportsCenter now, they just did the piece about 10min ago, it'll play again within the hour. After all I'm a minister Nick I wouldn't lie to you guys.

            Nobody accused you of lying. We are only questioning whether what you saw was truly "official," or merely sportswriter speculation.

                I would love for us to trade Barron. I really can't see us re-signing him this offseason considering he'll want LT money and we already have our LT of the future in J. Smith.

                McMichael too, as he'll be gone this off-season. But we'll be lucky to get a 7th-rounder for him.

                  Adam Shefter of ESPN did report that the Rams would listen to offers for Barron and that some teams have expressed interest, but that the Rams price would be high. He also said McMichael is available.

                  He also mentioned that WR Deion Branch is being shopped by Seattle.

                    Deion branch for alex barron maybe? They better give up more then branch if we are to make that trade. Although we do need someone to give the hags alot of false starts.

                      Branch is injury prone, that's the main issue with him and he's not a #1 at this point in his career which is what we need.

                        I wonder what the Rams would get as a compensatory pick if Barron left via free agency? The Rams would need to ask for more than what they expect to receive. 4th rounder as compensation would probably be reasonable so anything higher in the round would be fine with me.

                          We should be shopping Barron for a high price. When you ook at the last couple years of free agency, what marquee LTs have been on available? There's been almost no market, because they're so coveted by teams. The demand for a solid LT is really high, so we should take advantage of that it we can.

                            Also, no to Branch. The guy is lost in the depth charts in Seattle and is past his prime.

                              Pity for Barron...

                              I thought he would come out and perform well against the Jags, considering how great he did against Jared Allen two weeks ago..

                              However during the Jag's game, he consistently got bullied and pushed around...Sigh.

                                Is there a player you would trade up for?
                                by 1st & Goal
                                Has been alot of talk about the teams needs and who we should take with our 19th pick. Got me to thinking about what it would cost us to trade up and who we should target. Seems to be a common thread to get a run stopping linebacker (if we don't handle in FA) or a shut down corner. Looks like they are all gone by the time we would pick. :helmet:

                                Rams Decide to Trade #2 Pick, As Per ESPN
                                by NJ Ramsfan1
                                ESPN.com reporting. Of course, they are short on specifics, merely saying the Rams have had talks with Cleveland, Washington and Miami- nothing we haven't all discussed already. They DID say the Rams would be looking for a deal similar to the one Sand Diego received a few years back when they traded the rights to Eli Manning to NY. San Diego parlayed those picks into Philip Rivers, Shawne Merriman and Nate Kaeding- three pro bowlers.

                                I think the most plausible trade (if the Rams do in fact trade down) would be to ask Cleveland for their two 1st rounders at #4 and I believe #22. Cleveland takes Griffin, we still can get Blackmon at #4 and a quality player later in the round. Of course this is assuming Cleveland is a willing participant.

                                Should we trade SJ for both our sakes?

                                If we trade him what kind of picks could we get for him? He is an awsome talant but we need so much as a team. Could we do like a Hershal Walker kinda trade ?

                                What are you guys feelings? Are we gonna pick up small pieces or just run with what we have? I am seeing more of the latter? Unless we can pick up some depth help?
