Edge is not gonna go to the Bucs unless they give up a defender like Barber or Rice and move their salary. Cadillac is a more likely option. Honestly, I would prefer Edge cause they would lose another valuable defender to get him, and have their cap tight again next year. Their O-line still sucks, and they can\'t address it. I am sure they know that, unless they want Edge that bad.

Deuce to get Cadillac? Hell no. Deuce to get Ronnie Brown? that I woul do in a heartbeat. Edge on the downhill slide? He is 27, and a certified stud. I would prefer the bucs get him cause he will handicap their cap number and would prob force them to trade back from number 5 in the draft cause they won\'t be able to afford it. They woudl have Edge, but be screwed elsewhere and I woudl love it.

I\'m just quoting the \"experts\" -in fact all of them agree-on edge.

i take cadillac with a cheaper salary than duece with top five money. trust me-cadillac will be good..both will be pro-bowlers..I\'m not going to speculate who will be better- I take brown higher in the draft..but cadillac your poor mans\' option.
just to clarify-i\'ve seen cadillac since he was in high school..the guy just bounces off people and is extremely hard to get hold of..i hate to use this analagy (becuase sanders/sweetness are two of the best) but he is like a barry sanders or walter payton type rb....

ronnie brown is a larger emitt smith or less strong BO jackson.

and neither get hurt (cadillac is getting knocked for breaking his leg--but trust me..that was a freak incident and utterly disgusting when it happened).

What \"experts\" agree on Edge? Wasn\'t he close to the top of the league in rushing last year? At 27, how is that declining? You will have to show me these \"experts.\" Also, Brown is more of a power runner than Cadillac, hence the reason I liek him more. Plus he has great hands and ran a 4.45 forty or something like that. I am not sold on Cadillac, but you seem to be. IMO, I would trade Deuce to get Brown, but not Caddy.

I would take Cadillac just because of his name.

Whoodi - no offense, but I think you might want to consider production versus age. Sure, age is important. Definitely. But so what if James is 27? Last year he finished 4th in the league in rushing. Pretty darn good. But the 3 years prior to that - Hurt, 17th, and 13th. Not to mention he\'s doing it on a team with the most explosive passing game... hell offense... in the NFL.

I guess I just don\'t understand why past results don\'t matter when age comes into play...

He is only 27. Isn\'t that young? Howard is 27, 28. Don;t you wanna keep him? I guess I don\'t understand what you are disagreeing with Who. The question was would we rather have Edge or Cadillac go to Tampa. I answered Edge cause he would screw them cap wise. Someone said they liked Caddy, I said I liked Brown, if trading Deuce to get either was involved for us. I guess I am not understanding what you are disagreeing to.

Misread your post and was thinking about it in the Joe Horn context anyway. You\'re right. My bad.
