inspired by PrplChilPill, this is a thread to suggest personnel moves that are out of the box, and to discuss their pros and cons.


#1 - Trading Joe Webb.

pro- good get decent value, Sage could be #2 for 2-3 years
con- lose mobility at backup QB position, many fans would not be pleased

Ironic thread, i just posted this in the News forum

Quote:
Sage Rosenfels might be available. He is no lock for the #3 job in MN. Actually, I wouldnt mind seeing the Vikes trade Joe Webb to the Cards. Webb just doesnt fit the Vikes offensive system it appears, he has really struggled to pick it up, but I think he could do some good things throwing to the targets he would have in AZ. I am not sure if Webb would even be available in a trade, but i cant imagine he wouldnt be if it was the right deal. Might be a long year for Cards QBs given the Oline woes, it would probably be ideal having a good athlete like Young or Webb back there.

I will add another suggestion:

#2 Trading a 2nd rd pick and conditional pick (2013) for Dwayne Bowe.

Pros: Big time WR with #1 skills, would give MN a nice trio of WRs in Bowe, Harvin and eventually Simpson, still young at 27 yrs old

Cons: Limited "prime" years in MN, since he is 27, will demand an expensive new contract, a 2nd rd pick and likely top 40 pick could land the Vikes a premier prospect in 2013, has been inconsistent at times

Would fit in well, great mobility to escape constant pressure and a big time arm to get the ball down field to Fitz and Floyd.

The point of the trade would be to pair Boww and Harvin together, and give Ponder a stong 3 WR unit. Harvin has much more value then Bowe given his age and production. I personally hope we lock up Harvin this summer and he does not play under the tag

Not too mention, Harvin is still on a rookie contract and Bowe will probably need a $50M deal over 5-6 years.

I cant imagine the Chiefs getting a 1st round pick for Bowe, if they are even shopping him, so an likely early 2nd would be decent return for them.

I cant see us getting close to reasonable value for Webb.
Nor should we.

Id probably be content with a 4th or 5th rd pick at this point, then again, would any team be that desperate to offer that.

Trade 2 1st round picks and 2 2nd round picks to get Darrelle Revis. He's never happy with his contract and by the looks of it New York in general, and he gives the secondary a proven, elite starter rather than forcing a guy like Robinson in there too early or making lesser guys like Carr or Bowman start.

Pros: Secondary goes from terrible and in disarray to somewhat legitimate and provides the Vikes with 2 potential shutdown corners

Cons: Destroys any chance of the Vikes rebuilding the offense for the next 2 years, leaves some holes on both sides of the ball.


...No one said they had to be reasonable...

Adrian Peterson to the Jets for Derelle Revis...

Adrian Peterson to the giants for Amakamura and their first and second picks in next year's draft.

a second round pick for Dansby and a fifth
