Why do you want Maroney so bad, when you have a Pro-Bowler in Dunn, and a great, young backup in Duckett. And you have a need at S.

Maroney makes sense because Duckett is gone and Dunn is neqar the end fo his career.

Why is Duckett gone? Doesn't he have more years on his contract.

Duckett may wind up being a good back somewhere, but from his experiences in Atlanta, he seems to be just a short yardage/goal line back. He hasn't shown the ability to be an everydown type back nor is he the type back that fits Atlanta's rushing scheme. He needs to be on a power rushing team, not a finesse rushing team. Plus, he seems to wears down way too quickly in games where he rushes over 10 times, again, that could just be scheme making it look that way. I don't believe that Duckett is the answer for the Falcons, and with Dunn's age (although he should have another good year left in him due to his minimal amount of career carries), I think now is the time to start looking for his replacement. That doesn't necesitate the use of a 1st round pick on a RB, but it gives the Falcons reason to be looking at RB's who might be available at #15.

it won't happen. Vick is literrally untradeable due to contract and he is only 2 years older than vince but has 5 years of expirience compared to Vince's what? ZERO. Vince will take longer than Vick has to become a good passer too.
