If they said that, we should just wait for them to cut them. I would welcome all 3...for free. I don't understand why teams come out and say that they will trade or cut a player--then their trade value plummets.:dunno:
I just read in the AJC that Coleman and Crumpler are signed through at least 2009 and releasing them wouldn't make economical sense. It looks like Brooking is the only need player from ATL we would have a chance at this offseason.
if you didn´t like what you have seen from our TE the last 4-5 years ( most people had the exception in billy miller ) you will hate alge crumpler after he just went on with dropping balls like he is doing with atlanta . he isnt fast , he dont have very good hands and isn´t a solid blocker.... i say no to all of them.
I wouldn't mind Brooking if he wasn't too expensive to sign. Look at the Patriots LB core. Seau, Bruschi, Vrabel, Thomas . . . only one of this is young. We still need to inject youth, so I would like to see a 1st or 2nd round pick on LB, but I think Brooking has value for us. Fujita, Brooking, Simmons, Shanle, (early round rookie) wouldn't be a bad group. Not great by any stretch, but definitely alot of experience and more size to the position. Again the key would the contract. He wouldn't be my number 1 or 2 choice, but for the right price I think it would be an improvement.
