    Question Sugges for Larry Fitzgerald



    What are your thoughts on franchising Suggs and then trading him to AZ for WR Larry Fitzgerald?

    I like the idea.

    No thanks.

    One, we're on the edge of cap jail and Fitz would be a cap killer. Two, I am not in the camp (yet) that Suggs is done here. I think he had an off year this year. He's still a quality pass rusher, IMO.

    Then can we trade Dan Cody and a 2nd for Randy Moss?

    I think you're being sarcastic, but seriously, the 2nd round pick is the more important bait in that trade...

    Re: Sugges for Larry Fitzgerald

    I like it, but something tells me we'd need to sweeten the deal for AZ to bite...

    First of all, I think Arizona views Fitzgerald as a franchise type player. They want to build the offense around him. Yeah, he's an expensive player, but we're not going to trade McGahee just because we need a CB, are we?

    Secondly, Fitzgerald is under contract for 2008, 09, and 10 i believe. Suggs would still need to agree to a long term contract there. Also, I don't think we have the cap room for Fitzgerald, he's owed about 14 mil next year, then 17 mil the following year.

    Third, Fitzgerald is just coming off a monster year. Suggs is coming off a real vanilla year, where he certainly didn't impress anyone.

    So, I think the trade would need to be Suggs + a high round draft pick for Fitzgerald. Maybe we can stoke a low rounder out of them, but I doubt it. Also, this would be contingent on Suggs agreeing to a long term deal with them...He wants to play there, but something tells me he wants a lot, they won't pay him, and so the trade gets called off.

    btw, this is where I got my stats...http://www.bleedinggreennation.com/s.../11/11858/6693

    If you're talking Suggs for a WR then I think Detroit would be his most likely destination. Roy Williams wants out of Detroit and apparently the Lions are seeking only a 2nd round pick! That seems like a bargain for a guy the calibre of Williams.

    I'd rather keep Suggs than trade him for Williams.

    But I see us needing a legit #1 WR as a missing piece of the puzzle on offense.

    I know the cap situation is not bright. Too bad we can't make a play for Andre Davis...he is a FA. I suspect Houston will franchise him.

    Franchise Andre Davis? I severely doubt that somehow. He played really well this year subbing for Andre Johnson when he was out but Davis isn't going to be able to command that big a contract at this stage of his career that the Texans would consider franchising him, I wouldn't have thought.

    I agree, can't see the Texans justifying making Andre Davis a top 5 receiver in pay...They'll maybe try to sign him to a one or two year deal and then try to trade him...

    I think Suggs for Boldin is more likely all around. I'll tak eRoy Williams too. I think it's easier to replace Suggs through the draft then to draft a WR like Flitz, Boldin or Williams.

    I'd probably go for LFitz 1st, but Suggs for Roy Williams would be a satisfactory trade to me. That dude is a BEAST.

    Not sure what the contract status is for Boldin. He tore us up this year when we played AZ. Ivy was bouncing off him like a tennis ball.
