Interesting. I like Ward, but hopefully it's for Drew Brees.

I like ward but this makes sense. Hope it's for someone in return and not a conditional 4th or something boring like that.

I expected this. Expensive contract and he's not the best safety anymore. Young up and coming safeties. Trade him sooner than later.

He is in the last year of his contact, so I can only see the compensation being good if he agrees to an extension elsewhere.

Means we intend to keep Carter, open PT for Simmons and maybe like another S on the roster.

Makes sense. We have some good, young safeties and Ward is kind of iffy in coverage.

Maybe the light is finally coming on for Jamal Carter. He was a 5 star savage before being wrecked by FAG and Dorito.

Inspirational heart and soul of the defense. Two things:

1. If his role is going to be diminished this year by Woods, then that contract is too high. If his role remains the same..

2. Work on restructure, if he says no, trade becomes an option but I say give him one more season as part of the elite defense.

Carter was already a keeper, this means they must really like him and another S on the roster.

It's clear they love Simmons and Stewart, Parks flashed well last year and Carter this year.
Maybe it's Barnett or O. Stewart? I think Thomas is likely heading to the PS. He hasn't flashed enough to make the roster.

Rapaport says that the team has received calls about him, but not the team "has called" other teams. If that is true, this may be nothing more than Elway listening to offers for consideration, and may use this as leverage for a restructure to reduce his salary. OTOH, maybe they are really high on Jamal Carter to play that quasi LBer role?

But, but, but if it's a draft pick it frees up a slot for Sloter

I live in Cincy ... AJ is no better than what we have eally and i doubt the Bungals would trade him and if so it would take a lot more than just Ward i think.


AJ's wife is first round quality tho.

...some news. I would imagine this happens with most good players Ian. We do not have a better safety on the Roster at his safety position.

While it did slip a bit, his play was pretty damn good last year and you can't discount the emotional and edge factor he brings to the D. His injury history is one that you have to look at though. Better be a decent return if they do trade him.

Good. There's not a single player on this team that they shouldn't entertain trade calls about.
