    Pick up Nate Clements (Bills), Dump Smoot !!!

    CLEMENTS ON THE BLOCK

    Glazer also reports that players on the trading block include Bills cornerback Nate Clements, Jets running back Derrick Blaylock, Rams defensive end Anthony Hargove, and Cardinals offensive lineman Leonard Davis.


    Glazer reports that the Cardinals are looking for "a pick or a player," and one G.M. got the impression that the Cardinals are simply trying to unload him.

    The most overrated, over-hyped date on the NFL calendar — the NFL's trade deadline — is less than three days away. While significant trades prior to the trading deadline rarely take place, the names on the trade block can point to a handful of subplots and inner thinking inside NFL complexes.

    FOXSports.com has spoken with several teams on this and come up with a list of players whose names have been floated from general managers or personnel directors in recent days.

    Perhaps the most intriguing phone calls have come from the 813 area code. That would be Tampa. Several clubs have called the Buccaneers' approach a "fire sale." According to seven different teams, the Bucs have offered up such names as DT Anthony McFarland, CB Brian Kelly and a handful of others.

    "They said we can take a look at their roster and aside from first-day picks the last couple of years, guys like Cadillac, everyone else they're open to talking about," said one team's GM. "They can't trade certain guys like Derrick Brooks or Ronde Barber but we got the impression they were open to everybody else."

    Another team executive said he thought DE Simeon Rice and safety Jermaine Phillips were also included in the group of those players Tampa would be open to trading. It's unclear what cap ramifications would arise from trading a Rice, McFarland or Kelly.

    It's not likely that anyone would be interested in any of the aforementioned names due to their salaries but it's interesting that after starting 0-4 the Bucs would take such an approach.

    The Bucs are likely to deny such intentions as teams never like to put a player out on the trading block, have him find out, then have him end up staying with the club. However, Tampa was not shy in calling around with their intentions.

    By the way, the Bucs were asking for a first-day pick for McFarland according to another GM inside the NFC.

    The biggest name on the block is the Bills' Nate Clements — a cornerback who will strike it rich, make that very rich, as a free agent after the season. The thinking here is that Buffalo will lose the young corner, so why not try to get something, anything, for him rather than simply part ways. Whoever trades for him would have to sign him to a blockbuster deal as well. One team did say, however, that they were seriously considering it but weren't sure if they could get their numbers together in time.

    Other players on the market include the Jets' Derrick Blaylock, who started half the team's games at running back this year, the Rams DE Anthony Hargrove and Cardinals OT Leonard Davis. Davis has a big number a team would have to take on but it may not be a bad trade if someone would shift him back to guard. Due to the money he's getting paid he has been put at tackle but many inside the league feel he's better suited for the guard slot.

    Davis has lost favor with head coach Denny Green and when Arizona called around this week shopping the behemoth lineman it was for, "a pick or a player" or as another NFC GM said, "for pretty much anything, they seemed like they were just trying to unload him."

    Report: Bills shopping Clements
    Nate Clements - DB - BUF - Oct. 15 - 12:34 pm et

    Bills cornerback Nate Clements (foot), who is available for Sunday's game, is also reportedly being shopped by Buffalo.
    This isn't surprising, considering Clements can be an unrestricted free agent after the season and cannot be franchise-tagged again by the club. If Clements were to go, Ashton Youboty might be active on game days

    It would all depend upon how much it would cost us, when we dumped Smooooooot ...
    He's getting paid as much as Winfield and it's around 6 yrs and $35 million if I remember correctly .... But, I have faith in Brzezinski to make it work though, he always does !!!!!

    Yeah why not he only got toasted by Roy Williams 10 times for 161 yards he must be really good because Roy usually has bigger games then that he must be much better then Smoot break the bank and pay him.

    i dont think this would be a very good idea and trade for a corner that is pretty comparable to smoot, maybe a little better. Also after the season he is gonna wanna a blockbuster deal and we dont wanna ruin our salay cap for the next few seasons.

    What's your solution to the Smoot situation then???
    Branch is gonna Burn him all game next week and is a weakness in our "D" that other teams "O" are taking full advantage of (ie:
    Bears, Bills, Panthers this year) .....
    How do we solve it???

    Perhaps it's a good question to ask on Pillage & Plunder tonight.

    I already know what Del's answer will be.

    If he has arms, he can tackle better than Smoot
