are we shopping ricky because the article that says..."Getting in their minds" says that williams has stated that he "would like to play on the west coast"..i really hope were not trading him. But if we can trade down to get their first (7th over all) round pick would we be willing or is that even a good idea>>>

Miami will only trade Ricky if Saban is desperate for Cutler, aka trading with da Raiders. But I think he will want Ricky out of the conference if we trade him so I can see a trade with the niners, niners get their feature back since they already have a QB. So Miami could trade ricky and draft jay at the niners spot in the draft. But I think saban will keep ricky because Croyle and Shockley are proving to be an excellent option in the 2nd or 3rd rounds as well. I will not be shocked if Saban takes one of the to CB/OL with the 16th pick.

We are absolutly "shopping" him. I think Saban is technicly shopping everyone. If someone offered 2 1st rounders and a player for Jason Taylor, I bet he would sure think about it. Bottom line is Ricky is a luxory, not a necessity this up coming season. If we keep him, great, if we get a great offer, or can trade up for our QB of the future, better.

Yes we are shopping Ricky. No we are not shopping everyone. Yes Saban said something like that to the press to take the sting out of shopping ricky. Ricky is not a luxury, he is depth. Depth wins superbowls.

Ricky and every player on this team can be traded " For the right price "

I don't know, I think Sammy Morries and Travis Minor are depth. Ricky is a Luxury. A Heisman Trophy winning, NFL rushing leading, Pro Bowler RB as our back-up making league minimum....that is a luxury. I agree 100% though, depth wins superbowls, and Ricky definetly is depth as well, but you can't disregard the value he has.

I don't want to trade him but I am ready for it to happen. QB is more important. But if we end up with someone's trash I will not be happy. Ricky has tons of value to some. I would take him in a heart beat if I needed a running back.

Saban made it clear that everyone was available if the price was right and if the trade could help make the team better but I don't believe that Saban is actively shopping Ricky. I'm sure there are feelers out to see if any team picking ahead of us are interested in packaging Ricky for a trade up.

Maid's fees for cleaning out his locker might do it.

I think Saban would listen to any offers... He has nothing to lose... I also think however that you are seriously overvalueing Ricky in this scenario. I don't see anyone giving more than a second for him and at this price Saban is much better off keeping him... He is playing for the league minimum!!! Ricky's greatest value is to us.

The Cutler scuttlebutt has way too much momentum... There are far too many teams interested in getting him. I seriously would recommend you save yourself the heartache and start studying Croyle, Whitehurst and even Shockley.

Saban will be open to any offers. If he doesn't receive the right one, Ricky will be with us next year.

A trade with San Francisco is possible.

We are talking about a team who doesn't have a running back and needs more than just one player to make a difference in their team, and also, they don't want to be spending much money (owners are going cheap to build a new stadium).

Oakland Raiders already have Lamont Jordan, so I doubt they would be interested in Ricky Williams.

On the other hand, San Francisco doesn't want to spend too much money and Ricky Williams is getting paid the league minimum. Picking up a guy like Ricky Williams is the best possible situation for them.

So a trade for Ricky Williams and the 16th pick for their draft pick is a possibility. Or maybe a trade for Ricky and pick up J. Peterson? Who knows. It's a long off season.

Huh? Shockley will be lucky if he makes an NFL roster.

Croyle has major question marks, an extensive injury history, a slight build and poor mobility, that all adds up to a QB that will take a lot of hits in the NFL and probably miss a lot of time. I personally wouldn't spend over a 3rd rounder on Croyle, and even then I'd be hesitant.

Actually I think the point of the article was that Ricky went shopping...at Whole Foods, for organic rutabaga and swordfish steaks.

I agree and would be happy with any of the three you state above, but if we can essentially trade Ricky for the rights to draft Cutler, I would do so in a second!!

Cutler - could - be a star of amazing proportions. He could be a real a-hole with a head case too, but you can say that about just any high-round draft pick. You've got to take a chance at some point!!
