I don't ever remember us getting the better end of a trade under Loomis' watch...

I agree that if a guy has got to be moved, move 'em...

But, Damn, I can't see why when we traded Jammal Brown we got so little in return and Washington had come asking us for the ProBowler...

No.....You can definately label him a bust. Oh, let me count the ways.....Only 1 1,000+ yds season rushing, more fumbles than touchdowns, can't run up the middle, is scared to get hit, & after drafting him #2 overall.....all we managed was a swap of 6th round picks for him. Yep.....I'd say that's just cause for labeling him a bust.

I look at it as getting 3 players to compensate for him, replaced by Sproles and we know how that was+ Amaya= special teams, and a swap in the 6th= could turn out to be a starter or quality back-up. I think we made out good.

What a difference an extra "n" makes...

Would've been nice to get more than a few places of an improvement on a draft pick, but Bush and his contract had to go.

Amaya was also a good add-on, and while he is a FA - he is an ERFA (Exclusive Rigths Free Agent), which means he has to sign with the Saints if they extend him a minimum qualifying offer.

Honestly, Reggie DID have a few good games and signs of greatness. All of them didn't add up to any one of his annual salaries. But here's where I find humor in the situation. Sean Payton, the mad scientist, couldn't make Reggie a decent player. So we traded him for a metaphorical six pack and bag of chips. Swapping 6th rounders for the lowest pick is the second most insulting trade deal out there. Obviously 7th is the worst. So while we got sproles for a fraction of Bush's final salary, Bush has to sleep knowing all he was worth was a backup DB and moving down the draft board 10-15 spots in the second most unimportant round. And now with little passing attack, he can get the touches necessary to finally eclipse 1,000 yards.
He could even go as far as 2,000 and I still wouldn't complain about the deal.

Yep, we saved a ton of money and if we made the trade a year or two earlier we would gotten a lot more for him. by the time we traded him he was damaged goods and everyone knew we had to pull the trigger with him.
