I wouldn't make that trade, the Steelers are in a bit of a down year and I've never been a Big Ben fan. Honestly, I've never been a fan of either but I'd stick with Rivers because I trust more in the Mike McCoy/ Ken Whisenhunt offensive brain trust in SD.

I'd have to tell him the trade stands. He made a bad trade and now that he's sober he's looking for a way out of it, you also have to look at what kind of a precedent you're setting. If you reverse this trade who's to say this won't happen with more frequency.

I like that trade. I'd start with that offer and see where it goes from there. You're right, Gronk could have a BIG YEAR IF HEALTHY. I just can't trust that he'll stay healthy for any stretch of time, there's something weird going on with that arm and back trouble is always a concern. TRich WILL have a big year and the injury risk is much lower. Don't worry about having two Browns... Gordon and Cameron are legit and their only weapons they'll get the ball especially if the Browns are trailing in the 2nd half of games.

Offer the trade and see what happens, you're right you need to upgrade the QB spot. I don't see either offer being accepted so expect to have to sweeten the deal, but, you never know. I also agree you should start with the Ryan Mathews/ Eli Manning offer. Brady looks to be developing a rapport with Thompkins, although when Gronk comes back look for his targets to decline.

I wouldn't give up Jordan Cameron, although I like Hopkins and Thompkins seems to be the guy Brady is developing a rapport with out of the rookie WRs in New England. I would actually see if he'd take Gronk, I don't like the injury history there and Cameron is a very similar player only without the doofus factor... and see if you can get Brown out of the trade because you're right, the other team is trying to dump a wasted roster space on you. It comes down to need, though, TRich is a beast and if you're really high on him go out and get him. The trade is fair enough.
