That one is not so far fetched as one may think. trade our 1st and get albert and a pick or two in later rounds and/ or swapping potions in a round, say round 3. the differ the balance of picks to next years draft for us.

i can see SP and Reed open to the idea now that Reid is in the AFC. they do have a history together

As far as the LOT OT of the rams he is worth a look at but there is a reason they signed long. could it be the kid needs to move to ROT? if so there is a glut on the market for ROT so the price maybe right. kicking tires and lighting fires

I'm by no means Ingram's number 1 fan, but I'd like to see him breakout and become a franchise back here. There's still some solid LT's left on the market... I'd kick the tires on them first.

With that said, the Rams did use a second round pick on Pead and are also pretty high on Richardson... who at one point in the season, looked like their future. They may not find Ingram all that appealing.

Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

All little common sense goes a long way.

Re: Time to trade for your Left Tackle.......

YEA ONLY WAY WE GET SAFFOLD IS IF HE CAN BE HAD FOR Roman Harper! Since we only have 5 picks we can't give any up unless we can trade Harper and Ingram or Ivory or even Pierre Thomas! We have Cadet ready to blossom like Ivory did this yr then we sign an undrafted fa like Spencer Ware or another quality back that'll go undrafted but is capable with talent!

Re: Time to trade for your Left Tackle.......

I'm not going to panic. I honestly believe the Saints could win it all as is. So whatever they do in the draft is cool. I want Tyran Mathieu. And EJ Manuel.

I'm beginning to think when your fingers hit the keyboard they instantly develop Tourrette's.

Lemme get this staight ( I know it's not you hagan IMS)..... It's far fetched to trade a position of need for a position of need with the Rams. RB for LT, and gain money taking the need for LT off the books and not having to pay a kings ransom to get a starter. But it isn't far fetched to trade our first Round pick for Brandon Albert who is going to command a higher salary than the guy we got rid of at the position.... We could only make moves like this if we were in " CAP HEAVEN.... We reside in "CAP HELL" where you have to make calculated moves and save money...

I put up a column a few weeks back about this and asked what kind of grades Saffold was getting, and as it turns out he started of with a bang, got injured and sputtered and graded out as a better than average tackle last season. But comon it's Jake Long.... That's like saying hay Patrick Willis is available when you have Jon Vilma...... OF COURSE I WANT WILLIS!!!! When healthy Jake Long is one of the LT's in the league.... The Rams placed there bet on Long being healthy versus him breaking down further. I don't think the change was based on how the kid played....

If Tyran is going to make it in the NFL he needs to stay the hell away from New Orleans. He has even said that getting away was the best thing that ever happened to him. He would be a horrible fit here for several reasons. I don't think we are anywhere close to winning it all as it is right now. The NFC is going to be the toughest it has been in years.

In no way would it be an easy trade we still have harpers contract to redo in our back pockets i think. But all i am saying i really think if they wanted to do the deal and so did albert. the relationship between SP and Reid make it possible. It would be interesting to see how they would work it out
