While I like Bess, trading him makes sense and I think he will do well in Cleveland!
A good friend will come and bail you out of jail...but, a true friend will be sitting next to you saying, "Damn...that was fun!"
I don't understand why this dude is so overrated around here. I personally dislike him because every time he catches the ball he starts dancing and running sideways instead of running up the field.
Trent Richardson is ranked 72 in WPA. Davone Bess for Trent + 1st-rounder should be enough. Cleveland's getting the better end if the deal, probably - that RB is just worthless, shouldn't even make a two-deep roster, they must be looking to dump him.
when one of your 'highlights' is a kick return to the 40 yard line, you arent a playmaker!
Bess may not be a playmaker, but he's in the same mold (not as good as but in the same mold) as Wes Welker.
I don't think it's a good idea to give up such guys for 4th or 5th round picks.
That said, I'm wondering why a guy like Greg Camarillo is having such a hard time sticking to a team. He also runs crisp routes, has sure hands, and moves the chains. I thought we'd miss him, and I'd be damn glad to have him back on the squad if we do trade Bess.
