Cruz has 1st Round Tender

Brown 2nd Round Tender

We all know what Cruz can do and some of us remember Stevie Brown's performance in New York last year.

No guessing involved if you could get these guys.

Would solve some big problems on both sides of the ball.

Pie in the sky or could Loomis pull this off ?

Would love to get Brown...but it isn't going to happen. Well...unless the Saints trade for a 2nd pick some how...or someone takes bait on Ivory.

Bold move, but much to gain with two obvious Playmakers.

Perhaps, Saints' 1st for Cruz, then 2013 3rd plus 2014 2nd for Brown ?

If I remember correctly, you can't even offer a contract to the player unless you have the exact pick needed to reimburse the current team.. there's no bargaining allowed. And I believe it has to be your original pick also.. you can't offer a #1 or 2 you got in a trade from another team.

Need some input on this. When teams make the tender, do they not retain the right to accept a lower offer if it suits them to do so.
For example, if the Saints received an offer on Ivory of a 3rd RD Draft Pick, even thought Ivory was given a 2nd RD Tender ?

I've always heard that you can negotiate a lower trade on a RFA aside from his original tender.
