Very VERY interesting rumor concerning the Chargers
 
and pick # 28:

Quote:

Apr. 20 - Only one year removed from trading the rights to No. 1 pick Eli Manning, the San Diego Chargers are setting up scenarios to be big players in the first round again. This time they want to emerge with an offensive and a defensive player.
The team is leaning toward keeping the No. 12 pick, but is listening to offers. One team above them has made an intriguing offer, while three teams have contacted them wanting to move up.

A more likely scenario is starting to develop at No. 28. Though the other team and the player are unknown at the moment, the Chargers are considering an exchange for a veteran defensive end and a draft choice.

If the Chargers can land the defensive end and the draft choice, they can concentrate on offense with their first pick.

I read on another board the end is rumored to be Simeon Rice of Tampa because, oh my gosh imagine this, they need cap room to sign their picks. Can we sneak in there with Howard?

The Bucs cannot trade Rice and another pick to get #28. Rice has had 42.5 sacks in the past 4 years. He is a good guy. He plays injured and you cannot see any dropoff. It doesn\'t matter that his contract is for $6mil this season either.

Oh my bad, what was I thinking? Noone in the NFL EVER trades \"proven players.\" It\'s an unspoken rule. Sorry. ;)

Yeah, the NFL does trade proven players, but Rice and Brooks are the players that make Tampa\'s D go. I cant see them trading Rice away. However, it would be nice for us to sneak in there. I dont know what the exact value is and what pick we would have to give up. But we could have our options open at 16 and then grab Burnett at 28 and still have pick 40 open. I wouldnt mind it at all. Does anyone know what the value would be of say our 3rd or 4th rounder?

Not saying they\'ll get rid of Simeon, but let\'s not forget that he torched his coach in the media at the end of last year. Simeon actually questioned Gruden\'s whole coaching environment.

Chucky gets angry when a guy gets in his dog house.

A coach wouldn\'t impulsively get rid of a guy over petty disagreements would he? :D

Hey - maybe we can trade Deuce for a draft pick? High second, late first? Why not? RBs are a dime a dozen in the NFL, we\'ve got a backup who went to the Pro Bowl what, two or three years ago now. Deuce is going to want a big contract that will cost us millions under the cap (just like Horn and Howard right? LOL). He\'s a liability and we need LBs. The only way to get them now is through the draft. Nevermind that the TEAM apparently isn\'t concerned enough with LB to do anything about it for 4 years. Nevermind that the TEAM is just as likely to pick a complete bust as a starter. Nevermind that we drafted Deuce with the what 12th pick 4 years ago - if we could get the 28th pick 4 years later and maybe draft a guy who might possibly be in the league in 4 years but costs less, and more importantly, lets draft fanatics theorize about who we COULD draft but WON\'T, that\'s all that matters!!!

Who\'s with me? Trade Deuce!!!

Hey - here\'s an even better idea. Maybe we can trade the number 16 in this year\'s draft for the 20th in the 2010 draft!!! Then we can solve all our problems that year and we don\'t have to pay any players between now and then!

WhoDat --

I\'ll stop watching the Saints if they trade Deuce. You can find me on an Atlanta Falcons\' message board if that happens.

Go Falcons!!! ;)
