    10-Pack: Trades that should be made before deadline - Mike Florio - NFL - Sporting News

    Maybe we could bring in Steven Jackson for a physical and send back
    Maroney in his clothes.

    I was just reading that and my eyes started to light up.. Of course it won't happen but if he was available, I would love to see him in the backfield with Brady handing him the ball.. He's a 26 year old RB that can play all three downs..

    I'm on board with this if his contract is reasonable. Maroney is from St. Louis and might just need a change of scenery. Would Maroney and our 2010 3rd get it done?

    Re: Florio says Steven Jackson would look good in silver and blue

    That's actually not a terrible idea. What would we give up for him- one of our 2010 2nd rounders? That's probably a little steep for a RB with as much wear on his treads as Jackson has, and he'd have to learn the Pats' offense well enough to be an effective blocker in it, which can't be easy to do mid-season, but I've heard crazier ideas thrown around here and on PFT.

    I don't think they'd want Maroney, since if they wanted a RB in his mid-20s with a bit of an injury history and some wear on him, they'd probably just keep Jackson. Maroney will probably remain effective for a couple more years than Jackson, since he's 2 years younger and doesn't take as many hits, but it still doesn't solve the problem at the core of it. IMO, they'd probably just want a draft pick.

    I'd love to get him, maybe we could put this godforsaken 5 carries per RB crap to bed once and for all. If the Rams can get decent value for him they need to do it and RB is one of those position that you can step right into - or maybe our offense is too complicated and he'd need 1 1/2 years :rolleyes:

    Get Maroney's former Minnesota partner Marion Barber in a trade with Dallas and send Maroney to the Cowboys and a 2nd rounder next season.

    At least Barber can run consistently and with power.

    Re: Florio says Steven Jackson would look good in siilver and blue.

    Not even close.. You'd have to offer multiple picks and one of those would have to be contingent on his playing time.. Say in next years draft something like a second round pick and a fourth round pick.. and of course the fourth round pick is contingent on his playing time and/or stats. If he meets a certain number it goes up to a #3..It would be Well worth it.. He's been in the league for 6 year and will be 27.. He has another 4 good years..

    Re: Florio says Steven Jackson would look good in silver and blue

    No way STL does it for Maroney and a 3rd. Maybe Maroney and a 2nd, but this guy is 1st round talent and Maroney (bust or not) isn't any more valuable than a 4th IMO.

    And Jackson's only problem is that he's very injury prone.

    Absolutely ! a change is scenery probably will help them both. How many 2nd round picks do we have next year and what are we going to do about them ?

    Re: Florio says Steven Jackson would look good in silver and blue

    True but over 5 years the guy has averaged 291 touches (runs and receptions) a year despite missing 3-4 games a year on average. Truly a workhorse.

    I would do any deal involving Maroney and any 2nd for Barber or Jackson in a heartbeat.

    I would probably die if it did happen

    Re: Florio says Steven Jackson would look good in silver and blue

    Jackson is the 2nd best back in the NFL after Peterson, in my opinion. It's pretty amazing what he does considering just how awful the situation he is in is. Constantly facing 8 and 9 man fronts due to awful QB play and his line isn't very good either yet he still produces.

    I do think a deal between the Patriots and Rams makes sense since the Rams will have run Jackson into the ground by the time they are contending and he'll be worthless by then. Meanwhile, the Patriots have 4 picks in the 1st 2 rounds next year and 3 picks in the 1st 2nd rounds in 2011.

    That said, I don't see it happening.

    Re: Florio says Steven Jackson would look good in silver and blue

    No, but he wont run to the line of srimmage and take a knee.

    Also would anyone be against a trade for Larry Johnson? An ultimate buy low type option? The guys offensive line is absolutley terrible and fans are trying to run him out of town

    Re: Florio says Steven Jackson would look good in silver and blue

    I would be so happy if we shipped Maroney anywhere. Love the Broncos game where you see him pouting on the bench. He was supposed to be "motivated" that game and didn't show the slightest improvement. Love to get Jackson here.

    Re: Florio says Steven Jackson would look good in silver and blue

    Johnson is still a good RB, and anyone who says otherwise is crazy, so yeah- I'd definitely take him. Wonder what it'd take to get that done- a 4th rounder?

    Re: Florio says Steven Jackson would look good in silver and blue

    Nothing against Jackson, I think he's a good player, but a RB is hardly what we need. Maroney's not as bad as some people make it sound. There's hardly any holes for him to run through and we're not exactly committing to the run.

    However, if we do trade for Jackson, he'll be a good addition because he is a good player. Same thing with Larry Johnson.

    Re: Florio says Steven Jackson would look good in silver and blue

    Agreed, but we could use another RB to replace Taylor. IMO the guy would compliment Maroney, not replace him. And yeah, when he proceeded to come in and not do nearly as well as people were expecting, maybe then we'd figure out that it's just not that easy to run behind this line.
