Tampa Bay talking trade for Johnson?
By John Murphy and Jason Cole
April 16, 2007
There is increasing speculation among personnel men that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are going to make a run at trading up from No. 4 overall to the top pick in the NFL draft in an effort to get Georgia Tech wide receiver Calvin Johnson.

"I definitely get the feeling that's where the Bucs are going," an executive from another NFL team said this week.

Three weeks ago, Tampa Bay general manager Bruce Allen said he had been in contact with Oakland Raiders owner Al Davis.

"Al talked to me about what he wants to do, but I'm not sharing that with you," Allen said with a smile. There was speculation that the Bucs had already offered Oakland all four of their picks in the first three rounds (Nos. 4, 35, 64 and 68 overall) to move up. The Bucs received the No. 64 overall pick after trading defensive tackle Anthony McFarland to the Indianapolis Colts last season.

However, that trade offer involving Tampa Bay and Oakland seems premature to observers.

Wouldn't be good for those who want Quinn. The Raiders would most likely end up aking him at 4

that just goes to show that they believe that Oakland is very serious about taking CJ, otherwise they would be talking with Detroit. If that's the way it happens, the Quinn proponents have to pray that Cleveland takes Adrian Peterson

Hmmm TB takes Johnson, Lions IMO still takes Quinn not Adams as it has been suggested, The Browns take either Peterson or Russell
