Howard to Cowboys for Dat Nguyen and 2nd round pick (?)

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; We had 2 second rounders, but one was traded away. It would be great if we could get another pick. Actually we were going to get a pick for Howard anyways so basically it would be great if we could ...

Actually we were going to get a pick for Howard anyways so basically it would be great if we could get a starting MLB back in return. :P He didn\'t really come out highly touted because he was considered undersized... IMO he\'s definately an over- achiever.

Nguyen was drafted in the third round and has worked his way up to the starting position. I like the deal very much - a starting MLB AND the 42nd pcik overall? Pull the trigger on this one!

The second 2nd rounder was traded to Green Bay in the McKenzie trade by the way.

Yes, and he is the veteran leader we need too, with next yera being his 8th year in the league. I really like this trade, makes me think we would have one of the best offseasons so far.

Not thrilled. Not a big Dat fan, though.

IF Sharper is still out there...Why don\'t we at least show interest, I know he\'s only 6\"3, 239 pounds with 607 career tackles? But hey he MIGHT just be worth a 4th rounder???

Well I like the trade, we get a 2nd rounder and a player. I feel we should get as many 1-2-and 3 rounder picks in this draft as we can. Overall this is a solid draft year as oppose to most recent ones in the past. A good your to build a core that will be solid for us in the future. What they need to do now is trade that 16th pick and move down!!! get another 2nd or 3rd.

And get who Euphoria? I wouldn\'t mind going down but aren\'t we in the position to get a really good play who falls, or that should be here?

There is a lot of talent... just name any, lol. This is a great draft. At this point I like getting the best available athlete. Unless moving up to the top 3-5 its not worth moving up at all. CB Fabian Washington is a name that sticks out, WR Mark Clayton. What I like in the 2nd and third is OL Adam Terry and WR Mathis our of Hampton, dude is lightning. Picking up another RB in the second and even some good LB\'s.

i like the trade... we get the only asian football player in the world... that should make my girlfriend want to watch the games with me (her last name is nguyen, pronounced like winn in winn-dixie for those that don\'t know...) he\'s a great palyer, always around the ball... i would like it better if we\'d get bradie james out of the deal, but that\'s not likely considering they cut coakley to keep james as the starter.

Good trade and it will most certainly lower the cap right? I would take this trade everyday of the week.
