Looks like it could happen?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Seems the Bengals are preparing for the departure of Kitna and that the Browns maybe in the market for a QB? Maybe a trade with the Browns for a linebacker or DT and a #4 for Brooks, then we can ...

Do you really want Kitna? I'd rather keep AB.

Who's going to trade for AB knowing that they'll have to pay him $6M upfront? Ya'll are dreaming.

Folks around here are way too interested in Kitna. Maybe as a 1 year stop gap while you get the rookie ready.

Kitna is a backup. Whatever it takes to get AB outta here, but Kitna is not that good. He actually made an AB play and fumbled without being touched in his last game. He's a gamer...I'll give him that, but he's a 2nd stringer IMHO.

they can work out a contract with Brooks as condition to the trade, money isn't an issue except for what he'll make this coming year. I also rather keep him than get Kitna

I would rather Kitna than Brooks, simply because Brooks has starter talent and would not be good in a mentor role. Kitna is clearly more comfortable with a 2nd string, temp starter type thing.

AB has nothing to offer a young QB, other than "watch out man, they'll criticize you no matter how good you are." I don't need his QB philosphy in the ear of a young QB.

No way I'm dreaming. I guarantee you that there are coaches out there in the NFL that see a guy as naturally talented as Brooks is, and they say to themselves, "Haslett couldn't do it, but I'm a good coach and I can teach this guy to be a damn good QB." Somebody will take him in just because of how gifted he is talent-wise.

TheDuece is right. Look at Jake Plummer as an example of what teams will think they can do to a bad QB. In Arizona he only had one year with more TDs than Ints. Shanahan knew he could get more from the guy and focused on him as his starter. His (Plummer) career QB rating is still lower than Brooks and thats after three years over 84.

Brooks on the other hand JUST had his first season with more Ints than TDs, and still has good arm strength. There are coaches out there that KNOW that if they get ahold of this guy (Brooks), then they can teach him some better decission making skills. Hell, Payton might be thinking that himself.

I do believe Kitna would be a better mentor to a rookie QB than Brooks. He's already done it in Cinci.
