Do you think this is upgraded keepers insted of Moss, T.O., J.Jones and Bell (or Clayton or Martin)
I like the trade... Alexander is proven value at RB. You couldn't keep them all, so trading away for a guy like Alexander is solid.
Bell is risky b/c we don't know if he is going to live up to the billing. Denver has a history of the badass back not showing up until week 4.
So, keeping Alexander and Jones is a great 1-2 punch. Alexander is a top 3 RB and Jones is viewed by many as a late R1 pick, definitely a high R2 pick in a 12 team draft. So, you're rock solid there.
Moss is money and will do really well in Oakland and I had Clayton last year, he was solid as a rookie. Clayton should do great things again in 2005.
