Me too...but any team would have be stupid beyond belief to give up a beer vendor for Knox right now. Nobody knows if he's even gonna be able to play next year yet much less how the injury/surgery will affect his speed.
Yeah, I think we can safely say that Knox is not trade material right now. Even if he was I'm not sure I'd make that trade. Knox is the best deep ball threat we have and from what I've seen from Kellen Davis he could be a good receiving TE if they use him that way and I think Tice will have more use for him that way than Martz ever had.
I'm getting to that age where a lifetime warranty just doesn't mean as much to me anymore as an afternoon nap.

If we could sign a guy like Avril and that spare third could get us a rookie who could push Webb out of his LT spot I'd be all for it. We have a franchise QB, a pro bowl RB and good backup for him so the only skill position we need on offense is a true #1 WR. It all starts upfront and we gained ground at the OG positions this year and Carimi will be the RT for the next 10 years or so provided he can stay healthy. So if we can get a LT in the draft I say do it. If not I'd prefer a pass rusher to any other position with that #19 pick. There's a need there as well.
I really hope that the Bears don't go after a pass rusher in the first round and do sign Cliff Avril. That would essentially kill two birds with one stone, by helping us and hurting Detroit. That would kind of be like the way the Yankees benefited from the Boston Red Sux selling Babe Ruth to the them all so he could foot the bill for a Broadway musical, only not quite to such an extreme. Avril is a proven pass rusher, getting 8.5 sacks in 2010, and 11 this season. He's going to be really solid and I don't think there is any question about it. The only thing is that according to various reports, Avril would like to continue his career in Detroit, so we'll see how that pans out and whether or not they choose to tender him a contract or, God forbid, franchise him.
You know me, soul. I'm wanting to trade up for an OT, to either the 8th or 10th pick in the draft. Reiff and Martin hold those two positions, respectively, and they are both studs at the position. We should act decisively. I think Snead would be more inclined to do that than Ross. Ross would stick with the DE/pass rusher.
