they have showed the chutzpah to move up before. LB is an incredible glaring need and there is only one sure-thing strong playmaker. we have heard nada even from the rumor mill to indicate this might be a possibility tho.

I don\'t get it. Why accept the #38 overall, which would be completely speculative about who we got and what kind of player he\'d be, when Howard was drafted like #33 overall and is now a proven double digit sacker? Is he worth less now than when he was drafted?

Maybe I\'m missing something, but I think Oakland\'s got to throw in more than one measly 2nd round pick.

I think one measely high second round pick is worth it for a guy that was gonna walk for nothing. And a guy who is playing a position we happen to be pretty well stocked for starters in. And a guy who is counting 7.8 mil against our current cap. I have no problem with that deal at all. Edge James was taken in the first round and not he may be traded for a second round pick. That\'s the reality of today\'s NFL unfortunately.

About Castillo, he has admitted to using steriods. So all the talk about us even considering is now poop. Big risk of him being tested positive and missing games. I\'ll pass.

I agree that this isn\'t upping the ante. I rather have Buchanon for Howard then just a 2nd rounder. At least Buchanon has already proved to be a quality corner. Buchanon and a third or fourth sounds better. Heck just make it 1 for 1. I mean Howard\'s cap charge is a lot.

We were gonna get nothing for him initially, so how is getting a high second rounder, which it has been thoroughly argued here could be a quality player at a position we really need, not good enough? We need to free up the money. We need to get something for him. We aren\'t getting a first rounder so how is a high secodn rounder not good in some way? Especially if it may give us the freedom to move up for DJ, which otherwise we pretty much have no shot at. Like I said, Edge James was a first round pick, thinking anyoen is giving up a first to get him? Not likely. If Howard was under contract at a reasonable salary, this would be a definite no. But since he isn\'t, getting something is better than getting nothing at all.
