View Full Version : Jones-Drew "open to being traded" Owner says ship about to sail

Would you trade 1st round pick or maybe two 2nd round picks for Jones Drew and have a top 5 RB on the roster. If Tannehill can manage the game and have a few big plays and limit turnovers we could grind it out and also get big plays out of Jones Drew and Bush. That would be a nasty tandem to have in the backfield for Tannehill. They can both run and catch and Jones Drew is a great blocker. He is 27 and still has plenty of legs left in him especially if he split carries with Bush for a year. Im not saying overpay but maybe take a look. At least you getting a proven commodity rather than play Daniel Thomas. NOTHING helps a young signal caller like a Workhorse reliable RB. Maybe offer Daniel Thomas and a 2nd round pick. I dont really know what the market value of a 27 unhappy back that wants to get paid is. I just know that I like what I seen from Tannehill and Reggie is not built to handle the load like Jones Drew is. And if Bush goes down then we are in trouble if all we have is Daniel Thomas. You can say We have Miller but He hasnt done anything to warrant trust.

no. we wont be running the ball much anyway

08-21-2012, 06:41 PM
NO way but I could see the Jets

08-21-2012, 06:41 PM
OMG people no no no. We are not trading a 1st round pick for any RB or WR

Why is it that every time someone is released or cut a thread like this pops up.No I would not trade a 1st rounder or 2 second rounders to come here and run behind our offensive line.He would quickly go from a top 5 RB to a middle of the road running back.In addition where are you going to find the cap space to sign him.

Our weakness is Wr.. So NO...

08-21-2012, 06:47 PM
That would make a nasty tandem but we wouldn't trade a 1st for him and plus we are in need of a wr

08-21-2012, 06:56 PM
I could see the Jets making that trade but not us.

08-21-2012, 06:57 PM
As much as I would like to see him as Dolphin, we have more pressing issues than RB to give the Jags a 1st or 2nd for him.

Hell to the NAW.

MJD is a great RB. He probably has another strong year or two left in him. Hell he might have more given that he isnt especially large and seems to not take as much of a beating as most backs due to staying low and being so strong for his height. Problem is, dude wants a new huge contract. Thats the whole reason Jacksonville is trying to trade him. They dont want to give a huge contract to the most easily replaceable position in the game.

You draft RBs every year in the late rounds. You keep fresh legs at the position and pay them little for solid production. Thats how its done. Giving huge money to a RB is almost as foolish as using a ton of cap space on a rookie OLman by drafting him first overall when there was no rookie wage scale and you were in desperate need of a QB and one was available and you pay the QB is supposed to take big money anyway.

He's going to get traded for something like a 4th round pick. Just watch.

08-21-2012, 07:02 PM
Well it is Ireland.. so i guess we give 2 1st rounders for him

Put down the blunt, no way he's that cheap

08-21-2012, 07:19 PM
Sure why not?

08-21-2012, 07:34 PM
I'd do something like Reggie + 2nd for him

Maybe after we get him for the 4th we could use a 2nd rounder to trade for Megatron? Id even throw in Clyde Gates to sweeten the pot if need be.

Running back is something that is reasonably Ok. If it were for an O Lineman or LB I might consider something

Ireland has never traded a first round pick for a player, so you're right, that sound exactly like him...
