Lesean McCoy trade?

D. Adams and a draft choice (or even just Adams by himself) sounds like too much. TT has to be thinking that J. Nelson is close to the end, at least as a #1 WR, and Adams looks like the heir apparent. However, it should be noted that McCoy had the highest YPC (5.4 -- for Buffalo, no less) of his eight-year career last year, so he's not exactly in decline right now. And it is likely they will have a boat load of comp picks next year.

Trade Adams?  Sure hope the Packers aren't thinking that.  Would hate that trade.  And a pick?  Nope pass...They may end up just cutting him for cap space.  29 year old running back?  ughhhh.....pass pass pass.  He we could sign him after being cut ok other than that no thanks.  Guy his talent but when does he hit the wall?  This year?  Next year?

The Bills are telling everyone, including McCoy himself, their star running back won't be traded.


Story....

It is interesting that a website puts up a story that has zero merit. The things he claims are total fiction.

Sounds like unsubstantiated nonsense to me...

-A player thatís likely entering the twilight of his career for a rising young star who almost certainly will continue to elevate his game?
-And a 4th or 5th round draft pick thrown in for good measure?
-Right after the Packers invested THREE DRAFT PICKS on running backs!
-Does that sound like a Ted Thompson move to you?

Interesting.  Would be a good pick up, but the price of Adams is way too high. Only way I see Adams in this trade is if hes asking for the moon in his next contract.  McCoy would be s beast in this offense, but has some mileage on him.  I love McCoy, but not for that price.

McCoy for Cobb, if you can sign Adams might interest me.

Definitely not.  I'd be very surprised to see this happen. 

A major trade like this doesn't sound like Ted's style either.  Is it possible the Packers are quietly unhappy with their three rookie RBs?
I would think if Ted were going to make a trade, it would be for an OLB or someone to help with the pass rush.

McCoy, by the way, was just in the news for saying that Kaepernick was not good enough of a quarterback to justify the distraction he would bring to a team, and that's why he hasn't been hired yet.  Obviously he took some flak for that.
