I would pounce on that if it were true. That would be a spot to grab Burnett or Crowder to fill the need at LB allowing us to get someone else at 16. Im not big on trading up to get DJ or Rolle. Please football gods let it be truw. And let the FO pull the trigger on the deal.

I\'m sure Saint Spud (the poster) did hear that. I haven\'t seen him post any BS yet. Now whether its true or not is a different story. Werder may not be correctly informed.

I read where Andy Reid said the Eagles has absolutely NO interest in Darren Howard and some dude on ESPN said it was a smoke-screen by the Saints to get more out of the Cowboys.

But ... we\'ll see. I expect to hear a lot of rumors on Howard leading up to the draft.

This is a post taken from another board:

ED WERDER FROM ESPN IS REPORTING THE EAGLES HAVE NO INTEREST IN LINING HOWARD ON THE OTHER SIDE OF KEARSE. THE INITIAL REPORT HAD THE EAGLES OFFERING THE 35TH OVERALL PICK IN RD 2. THEN THE SAINTS WERE ASKING FOR THE 31ST PICK IN RD 1. THE COWBOYS BELIEVE THE SAINTS ARE JUST TRYING TO GET MORE THAN THE 2ND OR 3RD RD PICK DALLAS IS OFFERING. THE LATEST COWBOY OFFER APPEARS TO BE SWAPPING FIRST RD PICKS FROM 16 TO 11 IN EXCHANGE FOR HOWARD.

As far as the trade for Dallas\'s #11 for DH and #16, that would have to depend on if someone fell to the spot on draft day.

I would also hope the saints would get another pick. I was thinking a 3rd rd but dallas doesnt have one. So maybe a 3rd round next year with possibility of becoming a 2nd.
Vaule wise i think that would be about what we could expect.

EX: DH for upper 2nd =580-450 value pts. So say DH-500pts
#11=1250
#16=1000
diff=250 that leaves 250 to be made up, which equals upper 3rd.

Maybe its just me but it may work out. But the right person would have to fall to #11

So who could we possibly get at #11
Alex Barron(very likely to be there, maybe a good idea)
D. Johnson( not as likely, also not as safe, would fill a need)
Marcus Spears(not my choice, but if he can move to DT)
Pacman(would be nice, dont konw if he will fall though)
Rolle( same as Pacman)

These are the ones I see the saints aiming for if that trade happened

I cant stand having to watch baseball, basketball and all the other balls that dont begin with foot.
