Now that there is some confirmation, I can say that even though this trade favors the Giants, it is not by much. They could have waited a week or two (Whenever Droughns was going to be released) and still kept their WR. I know he is horrible, but if the Giants have a lot of injuries at WR this year, they are going to wish they had one more.

Droughns is being interviewed on Sirius as we speak, for those that still doubt.

yes the giants could hav waited but then they would have had to pay him a signing bonus and b.c of the contracts hb r gettin this offseason had to pay him a lot more than they will b now
the giants were most likely goin to release carter anyway so it worked out def better than them

A lot of bashing of the Browns ... which I don't get. I'm not saying it's a good deal ... but no one was going to fork over much for Droughns at all, so getting something for someone they might've cut, that sounds alright to me. As noted, I think this is a bleh trade for both sides, and doesn't really address anything, except perhaps allow the Giants to have some false confidence and wait until day 2 to address RB. I say false confidence as I'm not sold Droughns has much left to be anything more than a backup, and ideally, you'd like a guy that might be able to step in if Jacobs struggles.

Reub doesn't seem to go well with Jacobs, as they are both power backs, but hey... they didn't give much for him

What is the Giants RB situation now? That's poor if it's Jacobs and Droughns. They need to get a speed or burst back up in there.

I'm glad that we got a 5th WR so we don't have to sign/draft another one this offseason in exchange for a RB who was gonna get cut anyhow. It actually is a good move by the Browns fellas b/c they got something instead of nothing for Droughns, duh

Can't even imagine the conversation when this went down.

Maybe something like this:

NYG: Hey CLE, what about this Droughns guy?

CLE: Give us something for him.

NYG: Well.....um....I guess we can give you SUPERSTAR Tim Carter.

CLE: SOLD, we win, high fives all around.

Regarding NY, by trading for Droughns they get him guaranteed by trading a #4 or #5 wide receiver for him rather than not trade one and risk losing out on him to Green Bay or Denver or somebody.

I hope the Giants think they've solved their RB situation. For a moment there, I thought they were gonna play it smart through the draft with a guy like Tony Hunt, Kenny Irons, or Michael Bush.

Both of these guys were going to get cut by their teams anyway. Droughns will need to fix up his contract.

No doubt. Tippy Toes Lewis won't last the year as the starter before he is pelted with a chorus of boos for taking 15 steps before getting to the LOS. Browns mgmt, unlike the Ravens, will not feel any loyalty to keep this has been in the lineup.

Peterson in 5.

Tony Hunt? Michael Bush? Have you ever heard of Brandon Jacobs? We needed a veteran to help him along and be a reliable pass blocker for Eli. We got that in Droughns, and for what a price.

Reuben would struggle to make the roster on most NFL teams. I'm with toony, most of you have no idea what you're talking about. Even if they cut Carter next week it's still the same equivalent of what they would get from anyone else.

Do you really want Jacobs/Droeghns as your runningback tandem? If not, you're putting Reuben as the #3 runningback, and #3 runningbacks that don't play special teams don't make the gameday roster so you essentially traded for a player that will never see the field.

*High fives all around*

Again, this is not a season changing deal but had the Browns cut him, we would likely have to pay for Droughns more so than we are right now because of the disgusting spending spree some teams are on right now. He is making less than $2 million the next 2 years and I doubt he will see the $2.7 million in 2009 unless he is better than we all think.

Droughns is at least a player that has succeeded in the past. He has been on a TERRIBLE Browns team the last few years. Both players were likely to get cut so why not swap them. The Browns have had a top 3 worst O-line in the league the last two years.

Hey if you're happy with Jacobs and Droughns and the rest of us are happy that you have Jacobs and Droughns, that's all that matters right?

Seriously, you should move him back to FB where he came from.
