    Good idea-bad idea?

    I am thinking of trading

    Braylon Edwards and Thomas Jones

    for


    Matt Forte and Ted Gin Jr


    Edwards has been killing me week in and week out and Thomas Jones is only good for 6-8 points a week.
    My other RB is Westbrook and is hurt.

    If I get Forte I get a guy who is going to give me 100 yards and a touchdown every week and if the Fins can figure out their passing game after this bye week he has potential.

    Is this a good trade or a bad trade?
    Brad Childress is 1-6 in games played Dec. 17 or later.

    I would say bad trade.
    Edwards will produce sometime soon but Ginn is a year or two away from anything consistent (if he ever will be).
    Jones is nothing flashy but he plays.........

    bad trade. Ginn will never be worth starting. Edwards is still a #1 WR on a really bad team, but at least he will see the ball enough to make some plays
    We're bringing purple back.

    Not much better than the first offer.
    You must have some solid WR's behind Edwards to not get anything WR-wise in return..........

    Honestly both trades screw you over , but if you are hurtin at rb there has to be someone you can get for a player with the talent of Edwards.
