In Response to trade bait?
[QUOTE]Who do we think BB will move for picks rather than have to cut other bubble guys they will get nothing for? I think TE, OL, and DL, and WR all have potential excesses that could be moved for picks rather than cut others. For example, trade Watson rather than cut Slater, just as an example. M Wright might be another. We have a couple of OL who would qualify. Might open up some cap room for Seymor and Wilfork as well. Basically, early returns with our draft picks may allow us to keep the lower cost high potential guy rather than the midpriced vets....

I think Maroney should top the list of players they should try to trade... some team may still bite on his "potential" to be good their scheme... because he's the worst of the RBs on the roster despite his lofty 1st round pick.
He can't run up the middle worth a damn, and he can't stay healthy.
If they could trade away Watson that would be my next choice, another 1st round flop... tone of physical talent with hands that turn to bricks and help change the course of the game... he seems to pop as many balls up off his hands as he catches.
WRs... I disagree, they need depth there, Brady loves to throw, doesn't look like that changed any... Eldeman looks like a keeper, Tate they drafted knowing he'd probably be PUPed or IRed, I see them carrying six this year.
OL and DL guys that get cut wouldn't be worth much of anything in trade anyway, unless you're looking for a 7th round pick in 2012.
