Are you guys planning on using the west coast offense? If not Flynn would be a bad pickup. He's not a fit in Olsen's vertical passing attack. But nice job on the Jets and Saints deals fellas! Has anyone put out feelers on Palmer's trade value? I can't imagine a team like Arizona wouldn't be willing to part with a decent pick for him.

The Ross trade is just "something to do" imo. How does it make us better?

We've spent an entire offseason on Palmer. We all know the talking points. What we need are definitive votes on what we are doing with him.

What teams could potentially be seeking Palmer? Arizona got Mallet correct? KC got Cousins. Any teams that have not made a move for a QB thus far?

So right now the vote is very positive and should end in 45 minutes right? Can I expect the Raiders to agree to this trade?

Why is Greer better than a 4th for this team?

What we need votes right now is you would rather have Palmer at 16.891M or Flynn at 5.25M. Give a shot to a 27 years old or keep riding our 33 years old one.

I vote Flynn.

He's a solid starting CB and was borderline legit #1 status for a while. We're not going to get better value than that in the 4th round and we have a big need for a solid vet CB. I don't see the issue.

Seems like we get a starting caliber CB albeit nothing fantastic in a position of need. We can focus that 4th on other areas. We essentially don't lose anything w/ Branch except gain cap space and we have Mitchell who was just as good as Branch in limited time. Plus we still have time to get a backup or a starter to take that position.

That was my logic at least which is why I suggested it. I left it up for everyone else to decide and it seemed like everyone else agreed.

He's 30. He's making 4.1M this year. He's expendable on the worst D ever.

We're re-building. A pick should be more valuable to us than a guy on the wrong side of 30.

30 isn't that old for a CB. The cap 4.1M I'll concede because I didn't know that. Fact remains that we still need a vet presence with our CBs other than Hanson though. I'd say its your call, but its really up to jtagg so, its his call. I'm still for it.
