Here's another oft injured, underperforming LB on the market for us to convice ourselves that we must trade for.

per Draft Daddy:

"Linebacker Ian Gold is being shopped by the Denver Broncos and New Orleans and Cincinnati seem to be very interested."

If true, I think we are starting to see a trend - beat up, cheap bandaids for our pourous defense. :mad:

Him? Morgan? My goodness. No wonder we constantly have revolving doors at the Linebacker position.

He just hasn't put up the best numbers.

Pickings are rather slim this year. I smell disappointment board-wide.

Would it be in a trade or in FA to get Ian Gold, I don't know if we should give up a draft pick for him.

He would be better than Dan Morgan.
He plays WLB.

So is Fujita-Morgan-Gold better than Fujita-Simoneau-Shanle? I'm not so sure.

Now, Fujita-Vilma-Gold/Shanle looks better, but is Vilma healthy? And what draft picks are you giving up to get Vilma and/or Gold.

I have a feeling we will be disappointed with the LB's we get before the draft, but since we are a BPA team, we have to fill the void with someone. Let's just hope we keep some draft picks to get some beast LB's in the early rounds.

Right now, it would be a trade. and he's due 3.25 million in 2008.

Simoneau - 70 tackles 2 sacks in '07
Gold - 72 tackles 2 sacks in '07

He's not very productive. His best year was 6 years ago with 100 tackles and 6.5 sacks.

PASS. We really are trying to find a fit. That's good that we continue to look.
