from rotoworld...

According to Len Pasquarelli of The Sports Xchange, the Panthers will "definitely" listen to trade offers for Jonathan Stewart this offseason.

After signing Mike Tolbert, the Panthers quickly put out word that Stewart wasn't on the trade block, perhaps for fear of losing leverage. Per Pasquarelli, however, the Steelers could be a "sleeper" to make a run at Stewart, and "everyone" has made the Broncos the favorite to acquire the versatile, 25-year-old back. Pasquarelli does concede "there hasn't been anything serious yet." Mar 23 - 2:57 PMSource: Yahoo Sports

Just like every other trade, it depends on the price. I think he'd do well in Denver, but this regime seems to be doing it right and building through the draft. Hey maybe they'll take that 4th rounder we got for Tebow!

That would be pretty nasty. A young stud RB.

Can he play DT too?

Since he is only 25 I would be good with this. I like building through the draft also but a young player is almost as good.

Unless you are getting Marshall Faulk for a 2nd and a 4th, I don't understand why anybody would give up anything of value for a running back.

Just use a mid-to-late round pick to get some fresh legs here.

His production in the running game has only gone down becaue his touches in the running game have gone down. Check out his receiving stats, though, where he could really benefit us with Manning running the show. He exploded last year and that more than made up for any decrease in the running game.

Because we're going to have to draft one anyway. Say you only have to give up a 4th rounder for him. Would you rather spend the 4th rounder on some third tier RB in the draft that will probably not pan out, or would you rather a guy that's proven in the NFL that he can be a 1200+ all purpose yd, ~8 TD a year guy

He's 25. You have two choices:

a. Make him play out the last year and then revisit it at the end of the year when he's 26. If he lights it up, either sign him to a nice 4 year contract or franchise him.
b. Give him an immediate 3 or 4 year contract extension now.

Downside years? The guy's only 25. Neither one of my scenarios deals with him past the age of 30.

For me, this would be one of those that I would love to see happen if he came for a 4th rounder or worse and if he was either willing to play out his existing contract or sign a relatively modest extension at the time of the trade. No Mike Wallace "I want to be paid among the highest at my position" crap.

If he gets traded to some other team under those circumstances, and we didn't make any effort to snag him ourselves, I'd be disappointed for sure. I wouldn't call the FO a failure, though, because they've done a really good job this week overall.

i wouldn't say they're losing value. i think the distinction between elite both in potential and in performance is being defined in a more dynamic matter.
before if you got 1,000 yards in consecutive seasons you got paid like a franchise guy and often times those guys petered out and flopped when they got paid. then you had guys who wowed on film and at the combine who were taken high on potential who got out played by UDFA's and lower drafted guys who were just better players and wanted it more.

now we're beginning to see that if you're not top tier or elite then you don't get drafted in the first round nor do you get the big bucks.

I love Still. He's clearly the most pro-ready DT in this draft. He has long recovered from the knee issues and dominated last year amongst the turmoil that was PSU football. I'm from PA and pay very close attention to PSU. But trust me, I'm no homer as I'm actually a UT Vols fan. Still played very well and very hard this year. Sucked v Wisconsin, but was otherwise amazing.

I also don't hate Worthy. He DOES seem to take plays off, but some speculate he just gets winded due to lack of depth at MSU.

True, but this will be his 5th season. So he's halfway through his career as a RB already.

under normal circumstances i would agree with this. however being in Carolina where he split the load with Deangelo Williams his workload hasn't been so much that he is already on his last legs.

this would be a move i would love, as he is a guy i really wanted Denver to draft 5 years ago.

i wouldn't say they're losing value. i think the distinction between elite both in potential and in performance is being defined in a more dynamic matter.
before if you got 1,000 yards in consecutive seasons you got paid like a franchise guy and often times those guys petered out and flopped when they got paid. then you had guys who wowed on film and at the combine who were taken high on potential who got out played by UDFA's and lower drafted guys who were just better players and wanted it more.

now we're beginning to see that if you're not top tier or elite then you don't get drafted in the first round nor do you get the big bucks.

What round was Foster drafted in? Oh yah he went undrafted.

I like idea of chasing after him but then I also think that we can get good production out of late and undrafted players in the draft. All the top backs in the league now are later picks.

Since he is only 25 I would be good with this. I like building through the draft also but a young player is almost as good.

RB'S ARE A DIME A DOZEN IN THE DRAFT AND WITH THE ZBS

(sorry about that) ..
even more so..

having Manning at QB makes it even harder to stop them..

LEts hope that we get another one that is more than 215 pounds to handle the beatings they get..

240 would be better..IMO

Brady Quinn I think = (

Joe Mays cost us our 6th, our 5th went to the Browns for Quinn.

I'd bet that the offer is a 3rd and a later round pick next year depending on if we can get Stewart to sign a reasonable extension.

RB'S ARE A DIME A DOZEN IN THE DRAFT AND WITH THE ZBS


1, Alex Gibbs, and his protoge, Rick Dennison, are the only two coaches I know of (Alex Gibbs probably also taught someone in ATL), who know the ZBS well enough to have almost any RB able to succeed in their blocking system.
1. RB's are NOT "a dime a dozen" in the draft. True, elite RB's almost ALWAYS come from the 1st or 2nd round.
2. Just because Arian Foster is doing well in Houston, or because Denver had former success with Davis/Gary/Anderson/Droughns etc. in the ZBS, does NOT mean, we can still do that today.
3. Dave Magazu and Eric Studesville have taken strides to recapture some of the ZBS proficiency in Denver, however, the Offensive Lineman, and the majority of Bronco RB's (except for McGahee), lack the experience/talent necessary to effectively run the ball when necessary. The Offensive Line has often failed to open holes consistently on 3rd and short, and in the red zone.

Hopefully, this is the year it all comes together.

I also would love to have Stewart here. a 3rd would be great..even a future pick ( next year conditional 4th /5th) .but only if he is signed to more than his current contract. (his last year is this one)

A 3rd + for a one year rental is obscenely dumb. No unless it's a 4 year deal, and doesn't break the bank.

If the Broncos want another RB, they should draft one. Stewart becomes a FA next year, the Broncos could always sign him then. They could release both McGahee and Moreno, at that time, if they want.

...otherwise, they will be getting 1 player for the price of 2.

BAD IDEA

Dude are you drunk? the Steelers are being held hostage by the Wallace contract talks, not the Patriots.

That makes sense. They just wrote it incorrectly then.

There's a big difference between how they wrote it:

The other 3 teams are - Giants / Patriots / Steelers (Pittsburgh loves him) but are being held hostage by the Wallace contract talks..

and how they should've written it:

The other 3 teams are - Giants / Patriots / Steelers (Pittsburgh loves him but are being held hostage by the Wallace contract talks)..
