    Fontoi Trade?

    Bringing in a quality offensive lineman wouldnt be bad. I found this on ESPN rumor central.

    Fonoti on the block
    <Oct. 13> Fonoti, who is in the final year of his four-year contract, is being shopped around the league, with the Chargers' permission, the North Country Times reports.

    Steven Feldman, Fonoti's agent, confirmed that the Chargers are trying to move Fonoti before Tuesday afternoon's trading deadline.

    "There has been quite of bit of interest, but clubs want to do a (long-term) deal, too," Feldman said. "A lot of teams don't want to have a guy for just the rest of the year."

    I think it would be a good idea to get him. I also think the Vikes should take a look at getting Lavar Arrington.

    I'm not sure about Arrington. We need guys on this defense who play their assignments. We're not good enough yet to have guys freelancing, and that is what Arrington is known for.

    Re: Fontoi Trade?

    I'll answer my own question. From the Chargers website:
    ===============================================
    Number: 77
    Name: Toniu Fonoti
    Position: Guard
    College: Nebraska
    Height: 6-4
    Weight: 350
    DOB: 11/26/81
    Experience: 4th NFL Season
    Acquired: Draft 2A - 2002
    Hometown: Hauula, Hawaii

    Had Drew Brees not had such a phenomenal year in 2004, people might very easily have mentioned the name Toniu Fonoti (TONE-u Foe-no-TEE) when discussing NFL Comeback Player of the Year.

    After sitting out the 2003 season with a foot injury, Toniu returned to the field in 2004 more determined than ever. He started every game and finished the season as an All-Pro. Toniu’s devastating blocks filled the highlight reels as he helped pave the way for the league’s sixth-ranked rushing offense. As a unit, the Chargers offensive line surrendered only 21 sacks in 2004, fourth-fewest in the NFL.
    ===============================================

    Well, hey, he's from Hawaii, so he should be able to get around boats ok. Maybe we should go for him. Extra help on the OL never hurts.

    I thought about him also, but Wayyyyy too much money. I think his cap hit next year is around $12MM ... too much.

    Re: Fontoi Trade?

    Why not take the hit if he is going to be a great building block for a line that needs allot of help. If he is anAll Pro I say make the trade. You have to start to improve sometime. My only question would be who is available on the free agent market next year in terms of offensive lineman?
    One cold January morning I will wake up and be able to say holy sh** they actually won!

    Re: Fontoi Trade?

    O-Lineman are much needed. What would the Chargers want though? a draft pick? they sure as heck don't need a RB :lol:

    If he is in the final year of his contract, why not nab him (or some other FA O-Lineman) in the offseason?
