    Heck yes I would. Chargers can draft a new rb. If we can trade RM, they can trade LT... just I would hope they would get more than a 4th round pick
    We got a 1st, 7th round pick, and a starting linebacker for Moss from the Raiders... who traded him for a 4th to New England.

    I don't buy into that 30+ year crap

    He still had 50 receps and 1100 yards and 12 TDs this year.. And came on strong at the end

    He still has plenty of mileage.. And spliting carries will keep him fresh through out the year

    He blocked 10000 times better then sproles

    He can catch way better then sproles

    And is 100000 times the runner sproles is
    As a Kansas State fan I can tell you that you know nothing about Sproles. A lot of people see his size and assume that he can't do this and he can't do that. The guy never gets a clean lick on him and I am positive he can be a full time back. He blocks wells and I believe he has better hands than LT ( could be from running the option all these years) He is comfortable catchign the ball on screens and runs hard. I belive he had to power thru Sanders and another Colts defender to score the go ahead TD.

    back to the topic, I would trade LT and use one of the extra picks on a Top flight RB or LB from this draft. Imagine them adding USC's LB or OSU LB from this draft to that LB core. Taylor Mays is even an option.

    Taylor Mays is always an option. I don't care who you have at safety.... except for Ed Reed, and even still that's just one safety spot on the roster.

    As a Nebraska fan, I concur that Sproles is special.
    However, he is not now, nor will he ever be, a full-time back as good as LT.
    He is utilized very well and part of what makes him great is special teams contribution.
    That said, LT isn't very special on the bench
    :-\.
    Trade him...nope, just don't see it.

    Well ... yeah ... and neither one of them was traded ... they were both cut after bad years ... not years when they tallied 1500 yards and 12 TDs ... I mean Alexander was let go after a year of 896 yards and 716 yards and Holmes was hurt beyond repair ... so obviously, no comparision.

    Unless you can make a deal like the Cowboys made for Herschel Walker. But what team would be stupid enough to do that ???
    They would obviously do it for that kind of deal ... but those kinds of deals clearly do not exist anymore ... that was back before people really had a grasp of how valuable the draft was ... and Johnson ended up enlightening everyone.
    And Herschel Walker was not close to LT.

    He is the face of the franchise there and a legand

    Shit if the Packers traded Brett when he turned around 30 or so after a "down year" they would be fucked

    Being the face or a legend means jack squat these days, we all know that.
    The Mariners trade Griffey, A-Rod and Johnson....3 of the most dominating players of that time.

    Nobody is sacred.

    Moss who?
    C'mon now ... the Mariners did not trade any of those guys ... all of them CHOSE to walk.

    No I meant the age factor

    People have been sayin those 2 were great and totally fell of the earth.. And alot of people think Lt will fall under that

    I don't

    As an NFL fan I do know

    I know who Darren Sproles is and my opinon won't change cuz u watched him in college

    LT is a special player.. And still MUCH better then Sproles

    Sproles has potential to be a very good back however
