In Topic: Source says Marcedes Lewis re-structured final year

Yesterday, 06:36 PM

Yes, Lewis has been such a clutch TE for this team and deserves zero criticisms..

Now will someone hand me my copy of Braille Illustrated?

Don't forget how his MMA training has helped him developed into a 18 catch beast last season.

Feel free to point out where I said he's "on the decline."

I'm speaking from an historical perspective about running backs and their general effectiveness once they hit 30. It's not really that difficult to understand.

You'd easily trade a 2nd round pick for him because your job isn't on the line for making such an idiotic move. Easy to tell us what you'd do from the security of your anonymous keyboard. The article Bullseye posted outlines why it's a stupid move.

The job at this point as been very mediocre.  What did we get out of a second round pick his first year?  Cyprien a very mediocre safety. What am I thinking right :sick:

Why would you want someone on the decline with a bloated contract in a year when the draft is offering us plenty of talent that could be productive for more than a year or two at a fraction of the cost without costing this team a single draft pick.


You say you don't support trading for him unless it's a 4th or lower.  Minnesota isn't going to trade him anywhere unless there's a premium offer they simply can't refuse.  A 4th round pick or later doesn't qualify.  They're not shopping him.  There's no reason to do so.  If someone comes to them with a ridiculous offer like a 1 or 2, I'm sure they'll consider it.  A 4th?  Not a chance. 


I don't care what Peterson's trajectory is in comparison to other running backs.  I care about what he offers this team over the long haul, and I'm not inspired to think he's worth what Minnesota is going to expect in compensation.

Where is the proof he is on the decline? Before the suspension he rushed for 1,200 yars and 10 tds.  Before his suspension he was by far and away the best RB in the league.  Ok he just turned 30 with a years rest and less mileage on his body.  


I would easily trade a second round pick for this kind of talent.  You really want to help Bortles?  Get him a star RB like this and the QB will be very happy.  Superstars who can still play at an elite level don't hit the market very often.  We have more then enough money to afford him.  He was instantly become the best player on this team.

Who called him young?

On Jaguar's Thursday, Lageman, Boselli, and Shadrick all agreed they'd give up a 2nd rounder for AP in a heartbeat (But they used a team like SF as an example).  That seemed kinda high for me.  But I guess it depends on your roster.  

These guys know what they are talking about.  They are not the usual message board sheep around here./
