    The Chargers sorely lack a game breaking WR. Sure they have Antonio Gates at TE, but with Eric Parker and Keenan Mcardell at WR, they don't have gamebreakers. Also, they are looking to get rid of Donnie Edwards anyway. So we get the better LB but the lesser WR in Vincent Jackson, but they get the better WR in the deal, but the lesser LB. A fair trade, and one that would help both teams, and alleviate their problems as far as disgruntled players. I'm sure this wouldn't happen, but I think it would be a great trade for both teams.

    Interesting idea, I like Vincent Jackson he has a ton of potential plus amazing size for a WR. I certainly wouldn't complain about this trade.

    No! Branch for Jackson is very uneven

    And Edwards for Beisel isn't uneven ? Hence the idea.

    Where is your source? I don't see a point in making a new thread to propose a trade you made up out of the blue... Hell why don't we all make threads! Urlacher for Branch maybe?

    If the rumors are true, and the Chargers are looking for a 3rd for Edwards, I'd rather give up a third, and trade Branch for a number 1. Vincent Jackson is an atypical pats reciever, and it's unclear how he would pick up the system this late

    Interesting thought, but is there time to consider player trades? The Pats want finality for September 2 roster moves. I see the transaction, if there is one, as a straight player-for-draft-pick proposition.

    Believe it or not, I don't think the Chargers would trade Jackson for Branch straight up. They view Jackson as having a huge upside, while Branch is diminuative and injury prone. They already have Erik Parker. I'd prefer to have Branch, but in this case its in the eye of the beholder.

    And another point: Biesel would not make their roster, so why trade for a player who won't make their roster. Marty said that if Edwards isn't traded, he's their starting LB. Why trade that for a player who cannot possibly make the roster?

    Let's trade for Vincent and Darrell Jackson. Then we can have 3 Jackson's for WR's. That would be neat-o

    Here is an off the wall trade idea.

    Mike Williams and third rounder for Deion, then take our other third rounder and trade it for Donnie Edwards.

    Now that would be sweet. Never gonna happen, but sweet.

    Alright, how about Reggie Brown from the Eagles and thier 3 round pick, which is then sent to San Deigo for Donnie Edwards.

    Reggie Brown is pretty darn good. Don't know if the Eagles would do that trade. It's also funny that the Charger fan said he wouldn't trade Jackson straight up for Branch because Branch is injury prone. Ummm....how many games did Vincent Jackson play last year ? Has he played a lot in the preseason ?

    Ah, what the hell since we're throwing out names, how about Matt Jones and a 3rd
