I'm torn between wanting the Bolts to make a move to replace the ridiculous loss of Jamal Williams, and recognizing that the D is so horrible that it would be better to keep all the picks and make a run at rebuilding the whole damn thing next year. Oy.
I don't have a direct link because it was from his twitter over a week ago.
Here's the actual quote:
“… If a team out there made a good offer for Bowe, he would be gone tomorrow” Adam Schefter told ESPN on Thursday. Schefter would also go on to add that “Like I said, outside of [Matt] Cassel and [Tyson] Jackson, there’s no Chief who can’t be had for the right price. New regimes like their own players; this is not something new to Haley and Scott Pioli. This is a universal truth.”
No, I get the fact that he could be traded. I think it's highly unlikely, but I see how he COULD be.. what confuses me is why you think Bowe to St. Louis makes "too much sense" not to do.
I'm not talking on the Chiefs part. I'm talking the Rams.
The Rams are getting younger on offense, and next year will be looking at a franchise QB and maybe another WR. But if the Rams were to trade our 2nd round pick and future picks for a young receiver, not even in his prime that has great size, speed, hands and route running along with potential. That'd be huge for a team that's rebuilding and missing a dominate receiver.
I'd rather 2nd some picks your way on a proven, yet young receiver with loads of potential than take a shot in the dark at a receiver in the draft that hasn't played a down.
The Rams are backed up cap wise, and I believe Bowe's 2009 salary is only something like $950k, which we could afford.
