I know it's unlike TT to make trades. However, with the injur to Finley we find our selves short another weapon. How many players do we have to lose before it starts to have a serious impact. Nevertheless, the Skins are shopping Davis, who has had success in the league. If we can get him for a 5th or 6th, then why not? I don't really trust Quarless, from both a health and consistency standpoint. Regardless, saying all of that, I expect TT to possibly raid someones PS, or hit the waiver wire, possibly even bring D.J. Williams back.

Even if the Packers have lost Finley for the season they still have four TE's on the roster. Also, Bostick is a Davis clone!

Davis has had a league suspension, so that strike on him makes a pretty tough trade knowing he could be lost for a long time with another offense.

Time for Q to earn that next contract and Bostick to step up and fill a roll on this team.

What is DJ Williams doing these days? If he's a FA or on a PS that would be a more likely move...

would rather have reed...

TT should just look in on some NBA practice squads and see if some PF would want to play tight end. Seems like that's the trend, hell, we can even sign him for league minimum

Jacksonville claimed him on waivers.

There is a reason why in-season trades don't happen all that often in the NFL. The NFL is not like MLB or the NBA. Football is a very complex sport from a Xs and Os standpoint. As we saw last night with Josh Freeman. You can't just pick a guy up and expect him to be able to contribute a few weeks later. Any player the Packers acquire at this point won't make any difference this season. You pretty much need to get these guys at least through TC and PS for them to have a shot to contribute.

I also think the price on in-season trades is high because there is no point in a team trading a player they can use that same season when they can just trade him before the draft. That was a big part of the criticism of the Browns trade. Its not necessarily the fact that they traded Richardson. Its the fact that you could have used him all season and traded him before the draft. In-season trades involves desperation moves by the buyers and sellers willing to sell. I don't think you get very much value on in-season trades. That's why you don't see too many moves during the season.

Trade-able players at this point in the season are vested veterans on the final years of their contract who are on a team whose high pre-season hopes have been crushed. It has to look as if that veteran is leaving in free agency anyways.

This allows teams to find a 'win-win' trade solution whereby the players' current team would not be left empty handed AND the players' new team doesn't have to compete with FA/gets the player mid-season.

This situation is rare which is why these trades are also rare.
