    Broncos want Calvin,trade is in works with Lions

    Anyone hear about the Broncos proposing a big trade with the Lions?
    If they get him Look for Pats or Broncos to be in the Super Bowl.

    First of all, where did you hear this? Please post a link.

    Second, I sincerely hope he doesn't go to the broncos. That would be huge for them. I still want Calvin!!

    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 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.

    I really doubt they would do it. I don't think they want to face Calvin twice a year!

    If the Broncos moved up that offense would be amazing with Cutler throwing to him.

    Cutler is going to be pretty darn good I think. I'm still sad the Vikes didn't trade up to get him last year.

    "a reader has informed us"

    not credible, probably not even speculation
    People who see life as anything more than pure entertainment are missing the point.
