    BRONCOS, TEXANS TALKING TRADE

    Adam Caplan and Tony Pauline of Scout.com report that the Texans and the Broncos are negotiating a trade that would result in the two teams trading the No. 10 and No. 21 overall picks in the draft.

    In moving to No. 10, the Broncos reportedly would be targeting linebacker Patrick Willis, defensive tackle Amobi Okoye, and defensive end Adam Carriker.
    The primary target could be Willis -- and landing a spot in front of the 49ers will help to ensure that they get him.

    It's unclear what the Broncos will be given up to climb eleven spots.
    Under the trade chart, the move is worth 500 points.

    Denver's second-round pick (No. 56 overall) is worth 340 points.
    The Broncos' third-round pick (No. 86 overall) is worth 160 points.

    And that's a total of 500 points.

    The Texans don't have a second-round pick, due to the Matt Schaub trade.
    They hold the ninth pick (No. 73 overall) in round three.



    Not a bad deal??

    Denver might be doing it to trade even further up with Detroit to land CJ. Denver has already proposed a trade to Detroit, but the Lions dont want to drop to the 21st spot.

    Trading with the Texans could just be the first step in Denvers masterplan.



    "BRONCOS WANT JOHNSON

    A reader tells us that there's a rumor being reported on 950 AM in Denver that the Broncos are trying to make a play for the No. 2 overall pick in the draft, in an effort to land receiver Calvin Johnson.

    A source with knowledge of the discussions tells us that the rumor is dead-on accurate, and that an offer has been made by the Broncos to the Lions.

    Per the rumor and based on what we've heard, the Broncos have offered their first-round, second-round, and third-round pick in the 2007 draft and their first-rounder in 2008 for the No. 2 spot.

    The Lions, we're told, are concerned that the No. 21 overall spot would put them too low to land one of the players whom they covet.
    The Lions' goal in trading down is/has been to get more picks, and to still get one of the players they want, but at a lower salary slot.


    So the deal might hinge on the ability of the Lions to line up another deal that would allow them to move back up a bit.

    The Broncos hold the No. 21 overall pick in round one, the No. 56 overall pick (No. 24 in round two), and the No. 70 and No. 86 overall picks (No. 6 and No. 23, respectively, in round three).
    We don't know which of the third-rounders has been offered.

    Under the trade chart, the deal might favor the Lions.
    But different teams value picks from the next year's draft differently; some teams downgrade the points by a full round, making a 2008 first-rounder the equivalent of a 2007 second-rounder.
    The other problem here is that no one will know where the Broncos will draft in round one until the 2007 season ends.

    The entire deal would be contingent on the Raiders not drafting Calvin Johnson with the No. 1 overall pick.
    We're currently told that the Raiders are expected to strike a deal on a contract with quarterback JaMarcus Russell before Saturday.

    However, the fact that former Raiders coach/current Broncos coach Mike Shanahan apparently has a bee in his butt for Johnson could cause Raiders owner Al Davis to think twice about whether he would prefer to have Johnson on his team -- or to have to face him twice per year."

    Man, I wish the Vikings had big brass balls like the Broncos do!
    Must be why they have TWO Super Bowl trophies after losing their first FOUR times there.
    I'd certainly like the Vikings to work some of that magic...but it appears that they are just a bunch of chickenshits!
    BANNED OR DEAD...I'LL TAKE EITHER ONE

    Re: BRONCOS, TEXANS TALKING TRADE

    the vikings organization just expects everything to happen for them or so it seems. the denver
    broncos organization has always made the moves they needed to in order to acquire the players they most covet. Like for example the move we should have made last year by trading up a few spots to land Jay Cutler who by the way is gonna be a damn good QB in this league for years to come. Now instead we are stuck with a couple of scout team level QB's and a front office that is too scared to admit they made a mistake drafting t-jack. Therefore if brady quinn is available at #7 on saturday, we wont take what could be the next great vikings QB for years to come.


    Im honestly to the point where i hate the minnesota vikings front office, they absolutley suck . This is the NFL and you have to take chances if you ever want to win, which is something the vikings dont seem to desperately want

    If the Broncos went up to #2 and the Raiders took CJ they'd be screwed AND thrown away 3 picks and a 1st-rounder next year for what precisely? They'd have no leverage on getting out of the #2 position because they're not stupid enough to take Quinn or Russell. I could see them taking Joe Thomas, but that's about it.

    So let's not fawn over the Broncos and damn the Vikings just yet, there's a lot more of this that's still to play out.

    Therefore it makes sense my friend. Although i do agree with the part where you say lets not fawn over the Bronco's and Vikings yet. Lets wait until draft day and see how it pans out, the vikings might net 7 sleepers (doubtful) and turn this team around. Lets be optimistic.

    Re: BRONCOS, TEXANS TALKING TRADE

    Can imagine the Raiders taking CJ just to brass off the Broncos. I love these last few days leading up to the draft as all the rumours and speculation really start to kick in.
    Time spent annoying a Packer fan is never time wasted...
