Default The Browns have finally broken Joe Thomas.

Looking forward to Elway revisiting those trade talks when possible.

In an ideal world, with the new coach and new GM on the way - they could be desperate to getting picks that can "help" their team in the future. Perhaps they could be low-balled a bit, but who knows.

If Alex Mack opts out of his contract, they are pretty much DOA in the OL department and would need anything to help rebuild for the future. I don't expect a "cheap" price for him, but I don't expect a future first-rounder and second in 2016 like we were allegedly offering anymore.

"Ah, that was months ago guys. We are offering a second-round pick and an above average player."

I liked that trade earlier and I like it now if we can essentially swap Clady for Thomas. It will be tricky though.

How bout Bubba Caldwell and a sack of dirty jock straps?

Fans always have this idea that the other team is anxious to trade diamonds for dogs ****.

I'm not trying to imply your latter statement at all. He will still demand a decent return, but given the dumpster fire their organization is and a complete changing of the guard, it is reasonable to believe they might be desperate to get whatever draft ammunition they can for the future.

I don't think they end up getting a first and second round pick for them, which was offered by us in the deal earlier.

He is an elite player, but he has absolutely little, if no interest in playing another snap for them.

It is definitely worth considering and going hard after from the FO's perspective. He's deal is literally 3 years, $30M. It's an avenue worth hard pursuit and diligence by Elway and Co.

Yeah, he won't come cheap, but Elway should go after him again IMO.

Direct your hate at #79 of the Broncos! Be nice to Joe. He is probably on the OM as we speak. Hehe.

During this season I would not have a problem with the move. Going into next season I don't like the idea of the trading picks for him.

I'd gladly welcome him aboard....but, not for draft picks!

And then rethink it out loud to the press a couple weeks later? Is he smart enough to be a LT? Use the pick you would give to Cleveland and trade up just a scosh for Jack Conklin. Done.

Sure if we want to get a LT, but I'd rather go get Kyle Murphy in the draft to replace Schofield and plug in Clady/Sombrero at the LT spot. The line will be immensely improved next year.

Good thing Armageddon is banned, if Joe were to read his posts he'd never come to such a horrible franchise

That would work too. I'm just talking about more cost effective solutions. It would have been great to get Thomas for the playoffs, but there would be no need to go after him next season. There are plenty of other solutions that will cost a lot less. He had his shot.

Well, according to the internet message board experts, finding really good tackles is as easy as picking up a gallon of milk at the super market. And we can have total trust in the scouting staff to fix the entire problem in the draft, you know, because recent history gives us all the reason in the world to trust their ability to evaluate o-line talent. Looking forward to the next affordable draft gem like Schofield... because you know, cap space is WAY more important than a LT according to internet message board experts.
