On browns.com Br)lon Edwards to Giants tomorrow for 1st and 5th
WHAT? CAN SOMEONE CONFIRM?
In traffic on my blackberry
Hey Eagles, up your trade offer pronto.
Hey Eagles, up your trade offer pronto.
just text me the same thing that he heard on 950 as well..
we will string you up if this doesn't happen.
but if it is i have to say...."boy am i good"...lol. This is what i proposed (im sure with many other people) a few weeks ago, when people were bitching that they didnt want to give up a 2 for a pro bowl receiver.
the teams that lost out announce it first.
that would be highway robbery for us. i'd be THRILLED if it was only a first and a fifth.
I WANT SOMETHING CONCRETE.
I don't pay that much attention to this kind of stuff, but The Eagles would seem to benefit far more with a Boldin than an Edwards, unless I'm misunderstanding your post, good sir
they said it's on browns.com. I don't see it.
would be a pretty good deal. Still come out of it with 4 top 100 picks. Interesting.
but being it's a Philly radio station and the Eagles were said to be interested also, it stinks to me.
Please, please let this be true! 1 and a 5??
I dont want to get my hopes up here, but this would be the steal of the century. Lets hope there is some truth to this.
would be amazing if true. I hope that his contract demands aren't going to be what they would of been after his breakout season 2 years ago though.
a fair deal in my opinion. 1 & 3 would be a little rich for me.
It seems like a fair trade for both teams though
I doubt Boldin gets traded. This could be a leak from the Browns "telling" the Eagles to up their ante for BE.
doesn't link to the football team.
but theleague office may be closed.
but fair compensation. I really thought for a while that Braylon would be a Giant and Boldin would be an Eagle. I hope rumor is true.
what kind of crack are you smoking, exactly?
a first and a fifth wouldn't be a steal for us? tell me, is there another first round receiver that will be available at 29 that will make a bigger impact than Braylon? and who cares about a 5th rounder when we have 2 of them and what, 11 picks in total?
this trade would be nothing less than us raping the Browns with a plunger.
I'm guessing its on the message board. I'm not a member though and don't want to register.
He's usually pretty reliable.
It was reported thet have a 10 am news conf tomorrow to announce it...that was what I heard
but a "1" and a "5" would be fair.
after Roy Williams went for a 1st, 3rd, and 6th, this would be a steal
then i would trade our 3rd to move to the top of 2 and grabe Laurinaitis or hopefully English or Sintim just falls. We would be complete.
I don't disagree that Edwards is a #1 WR. But he also led the league in dropped passes and has DEMANDED a trade. The Browns are stuck between a rock and a hard place.
Having said that, I love Edwards' game
it's just drama.
analyze the trade from a value exchanged perspective.
Braylon is a legit #1. we can't get anyone similar to him at 29, and thus, giving our #1 up to get him makes sense. the deal is bolstered by a #5 that is almost meaningless to us considering the number of picks we have.
again, highway robbery.
Everyone said at the time that the Roy Williams trade was definitely a Lions' winner.
This is a fair trade for both teams, I don't think it's a steal for any team.
But we'll see how Braylon plays
You can listen live here.
Some plowhard on right now, but he did mention that he would dig deeper into what Mike Miss had to say about the Brown/Giants...but he wants to talk baseball first.
This rumor really doesn't seem to make sense. Why would a Philadelphia station be reporting this before any sources in NY. Might be that there are talks going on, maybe a misdirection by a team, but hard to believe this one.
If espn 950 had it how would espn 1050 not have the story? Or just espn for that matter? WFAN has nothing about it. I am not going to get my hopes up on this.
But if it does happen......steal.
With the number of picks we have, trading a 5 in meaningless if we picked Edwards with our 29th pick.
but look at his YPC. Browns have been consistently looking for him on deep intermediate routes, which is perfect for us, because he'd be stretching the field. Also, the Browns experienced a significant dropoff in their running attack. This is great if true.
you have heard of something called the "salary cap" right?
The Giants are going to have to give Edwards a big contract. That's why this isn't the steal of the century.
its a Win if not a steal for us...
no one we draft at 29 is going to be able to come in and have an impact like Edwards can next year...
and we have too many picks as it is so the 5th rounder isnt even worth talking about
I'll believe it when I see it, though...
and they are saying that it is a rumor and they are trying to confirm it.. if anyone else cares to try the number is 610-632-0950
It says he was the 3rd pick in the 2004 NFL Draft Link
- ( New Window
This would be a reasonable trade, imo.
and cosmic, jerry doesn't pull the trigger here unless he's confident he can get braylon in (with his new contract) under the cap.
trust in the reese.
But if it hold water, I wonder what 5th rounder they are discussing.
|Randy Moss for a 4th was a steal.
shepherdsam : 7:07 pm
This would be a reasonable trade, imo.
does Braylon Edwards have a twitter account to confirm this?
There is no browns.com web site. Unless the report meant ClevelandBrowns.com (which doesn't have it as of yet), I'd remain skeptical of this report
giving up a 1st is not a steal
He was the 3rd pick in the 2005 NFL Draft, not the 2004 NFL Draft. That honor goes to Larry Fitzgerald Link
- ( New Window
but it's more than fair value...especially if it's for someone that young, one year removed from a pro bowl season.
he'd be better with us anyways...our commitment to the ground game makes him especially dangerous on playaction.
Some guy on the Eagles website I posted also heard it
Unless he saw BBI and this thread... Link
- ( New Window
the eagles went to them with an offer and found Edwards was off the table?
Not exactly a steal, about what I thought he would command, although I was hoping the Giants could somehow keep the 1st if they made the deal.
No need to "force" a pick for a WR, and take the $$$ that would have gone to a 1st rounder to help pay for Edwards..
rumor-mongering, nothing more.
thats a tough price for a guy in a contract season. ouch
It doesnt make any sense that it would be reported in Philly before NY or Cleveland.
by a philly radio station on some stupid giants fans
I say we declare war on Philadelphia
keep in mind that 2010 is an uncapped year at this moment. very possible that Reese and co. could structure Braylon's contract so that there's a bigger hit in 2010 than there would be normally, which would reduce the cap hit for any future years when/if the cap returns.
again, trust in the reese that he doesn't pull the trigger without an in-depth appreciation for the cap ramifications.
bottom line, if you want to replace what plax brought to the table, you gotta pay somebody to do it. none of the rookies in this class can touch plax or braylon, and they won't be able to touch them for at least 2 years.
is a possibility as well.
but I like the deal if true
that this would be true. if espn 950 has news like this than espn itself would.
if true....probably not though.
If a Philadelphia radio station was just trying to screw with Giants, wouldn't they make the deal really terrible for the Giants?
and the beat reporters and other outlets would have confirmed by now.....
philly media fucking with us.....
They said 10 AM
Guess we'll wait until then...
this isn't some college radio station doing a prank. this is ESPN. you'd think that there should be some journalistic integrity behind these reports.
i've been very skeptical of the braylon rumours in the past, but when it gets to this point, and news stations are reporting that they've heard the deal is done, specifying what the deal entails and even saying what time the news conference will be to announce the deal, it's not even smoke anymore. it's fire, baby. FIRE!
with that rumor Link
- ( New Window
1st and 3rd let alone 1st n 5th. maybe someone shud contact garafalo and see if he can find anything
not your fault, obviously, but dammit anyway!
is booing bret myers. Its an ESPN station and ESPN has nothing on this. I hate Philly.
think anyone thinks they are purposely reporting false information but if there was going to be a press conference tommorow am, then the giants beat writers would have at least psted something about a PC.
This just doesnt make sense. I hope I am wrong. If the giants can land this guy for a 1st and a pick than the NFL is fixed.
WE HAVE ASSHATS GALORE HERE
Margi, Dan Benton, Randee...GET THE SCOOP YA BASTIDS
You speak to anyone about it?
I doubt this radio rumor as well.
But what credibility does he have?
it would be out somewhere already. its fake. (although I hope I'm wrong!)
Anak is such a little turd.
Exactly. Further I can't remember the last time the Giants held any kind of press conference to announce a trade -- or a conference call for that matter. Even if they were to start now, I'm sure they would have notified everyone by now.
you would have had better luck with davisian
The posters to pay attention to are: Phil in LA, Matt in SGS, Jon T, otis and someone on the inside. There may be a few others, but those are they guys I've seen post inside stuff in the past year or so.
Shep is still a witty asshole and I wasted 40 minutes believing some rumor...
turn into such a "hardass" from such a pussy
They did this for one reason and one reason only...
And damn, I'm sure they're going through the roof now...
I can't believe this many posters that atually think this isn't a steal if it were to happen.
1st - Nicks or Britt
5th - Who cares we have 11 picks
How the fuck is this not a steal? A legit #1 receiver that WILL be better than any reachable WR in the draft. Wow he drops passes, so do the rest of our receivers. You are willing to let 13-16 TD potential go because he drops 13-16 passes?
people get way too worked up.
I get a feeling '56 had a ministroke
BLUATHRT gets coronated. If not, we are going to have some roasted BLUATHRT!!!
is one of the funniest lines ever on BBI
The browns are the ones that are supposed to be holding the news conference.
anak, we're gonna have to work on your comebacks, buddy. that was atrocious.
Call Osi, that's why you have his number. Ask for Braylon's number, I'm sure he has it
I'm not an asshat. And if Phil says it isn't true, it probably isn't. He hasn't been infallible, but no one is. He has his sources.
it was posted that the station was called and they said it was a rumor they were trying to confirm.
you just noticed that the come backs need work?
and by work I mean they need a complete overhaul
one step at a time with this guy.
Just reporting exactly what I heard I am no asshat.
CALL OSI. Ask for Braylon's number. If you won't do it, I will. Just give me the number
with any comeback anak issues is that you can always make the "consider the source" retort. he's not exactly negotiating from a position of strength, if you know what i mean.
You heard what they reported. It was heard by others. No problem.
but what was reported is not true, at least, thus far.
so if it was a good I'd say so and issue due credit.
They're. just. flat. awful.
I thought you were like BFF with like, Garofalo or Vacchiano. One of the beat writers
complete fabrication or just something that is not done yet and might soon be.
they're just completely atrocious. he'd be better off with "i'm rubber and you're glue" at this juncture.
Anak is real..like i know he exists..but come on..is he serious? lol
some other media outlet (especially in NY) would have picked up this by now.
Calling Bravo Sierra on this and fuck Philly for toying with our emotions.
if Edwards became a Giant some time here in April.
Dan Benton, GET YOUR ASS IN HERE Link
- ( New Window
I am. But what makes you think they'd give me a scoop to post on BBI before they reported it in their respective blogs? You do realize that they get PAID to have that info first, right?
are they are just posted off of bbi ? Link
- ( New Window
because if the draft comes and goes and Edwards is still a Brown, i think BBI will literally melt down.
you realize how much of a fool you make yourself out to be when you post like this?
I don't know, boost their credibility on BBI? I still say Paul Schwarz is the best Giants beat writer.
Memories like fucking hamsters around here.
Already posted the Giants 101 websit.
Plus, I think Benton got that Eagles website from this thread...more specifically, me
You're truly deranged, Anak.
but lemar is at the stadium!!!
is PHIL there?
What the fuck!
As you can see, Benton said he heard it on BBI also.
And I know he has an account so SHOW YOURSELF, BENTON
He's better than anything we'd get at #29, but we'd be paying the #29 maybe $2 million a year, instead of $8ish million for BE.
when witnessing each successive anak post
best because of his last name...
The truth was going to emerge eventually
deep breaths. And DC, I thought the same exact thing lol
heard nothing about this one. I'll see if I can find anything out...stupid job hunt has slowed me down.
not at all.......
im pugsley..i know everything
I just puked a little, thanks

you guys coming to the bbi draft party?
You refused to meet them at the Giants/Eagles game. They still hold a grudge

And all hell breaks loose. What in the fuck is going on? Dogs and cats, living together, MASS HYSTERIA!
Anak is right. I hate you.
be glad you missed the first of the devs game then
but The Jake is more certainly invited to the BBI Draft Party. As long as he brings the chong.
See, now I'm afraid to check the score. Ugh. Fuckin Devils.
What happened to this team?
D is just ugly
something needs to happen in the playoffs

you'll have to excuse me if that's some new lingo for weed that i'm not familiar with. i haven't been in college since 2001.
Don't tell me you don't know Tommy.
the rumor's not true, and yes, jake cheech/chong, it appears that would be budz.
BBI Draft Party Details:

i'm familiar with his work.
are we now appropriating all celebrity names associated with weed to mean weed itself?
ok, i'll bring some Nelson.
you know damn well I am a friend of teh Tommy
7:57 Update - I've done as much digging as I can -- which included e-mails to every beat writer I know -- and don't really have an update. The fact that I haven't gotten a single reply from any beat writer (they are usually quick) could mean something ...
but then again, it could mean nothing. They all have their own lives obviously, so they could just be busy. But to play Devil's Advocate, it seems somewhat odd to get no reply whatsoever. Perhaps they are all writing their own articles to confirm (or deny) this ESPN 950 report
The Jake but he is beginning to grow on me
The BBI party is at Radio City, where the Draft is?
"The fact that I haven't gotten a single reply from any beat writer (they are usually quick) could mean something ...
but then again, it could mean nothing. "
are you going to be in NJ for the Draft?
I'm around now though for the week. What you up to this week?
Have more things in NYC. Maybe we can all go to a nudie bar afterwards...or see Ika's show. Same thing if we're drunk
I was afraid though, that the Kung-Fu Counselor might have been having short-term memory problems.
What were we talking about again?
Br)lon Edwards?? I hope this isn't a really late April Fool's joke, BLUATHRT.....
What about without paying?
And who wasn't your mom?
I technically pay for Skinomax (or my mom does) so...
BS report from what I was just told.
Good call, Phil. But I had to follow it up and dig for something ... just in case it was true.
ya know...just some Phelps'ing... might be going out with Dean on Thursday or boken this weekend.
do you not believe that a deal that involves Edwards to the Giants won't get done? You got to believe that at some point this deal has to get done
You posted MY website but you didn't list me as a source?
does not qualify as seeing a girl naked in person
in Ernie Palladino's blog and in T-Rock's blog
Nothing on Mike Garafolo's Star-Ledger blog, either.
These were the guys in on all the free agent goodies (Canty, Boley, Bernard, Brown)
this thread got really retarded pretty quickly
I got your email..Sorry it took me so long to get back to you. I had Ralph on the other line...Did you get my email?
this thread took a left turn
Anak is really owning you guys!
I think it'll get done, but not until we get closer to the draft. Neither team needs to rush and they're both trying to get the best deal for themselves. No reason to blink until it gets closer, and we all know jerry won't blink too soon.
TT, Well I'm around til sunday, I kinda have an urge to hit up the city or hoboken for some reason. let me know what you guys are doin
Maybe this thread should be deleted for the sake of everyone's sanity. Nothing to see here people, move along.
Do you think I should friend Randee? He keeps on popping up on people I may know.
you coming for the Draft party?
if so bring some venison and spedies
need to watch out for the thin skinned pussies
Just stated Braylon Edwards thing is a rumor!!!!
You bring the ass, I'll bring the whupping. Haha
8:05 - I finally got a reply from one of the beat writers (whose name I will not disclose until they OK me using it) and the news isn't appealing. They informed me that the report also claimed there is a 10:00 AM EST news conference tomorrow -- something the Giants don't typically do for trades. The quote I got was "It's BS as far as I know." However, by all accounts, the writer did confirm that this report WAS made ... which has to make you wonder about ESPN and their radio affiliates. Benton

I'm not ruling it out yet, depends on the schedule.
Not sure if you are being sarcastic or not. Either way, I won't link to Benton anymore (Sorry Eric!)
you are a friggin moron
learn how to read
and responded, hoboken sounds like a plan.
is why are the giants having a news confrence ?

ive seen him ban someone one offseason for linking to the MVN blog....tread carefully
not sure if he lifted the ban of allowing that site

| The Browns and Giants talked about a trade for Edwards in February. And that was before the Giants released Plaxico Burress. There's enough smoke in this rumor to believe those talks are being revisited.

cud happen but no deal as of now

Must've been a hell of a party..
I'll see how the schdule looks and let you know.
I was talking about/cursing Paetec today.
A. The story is a BSPN rumor with no apparent legs
B. This is a more fucked up community than the land of misfit toys
Has anyone mentioned that yet?
You say on your profile, Giants fan since "Birt?" What the hell does that mean? If you mean "Burt" then I wouldn't take too much pleasure in calling this a fucked up community
what would adding an 'h' to the end of 'birt' do?
I think the more likely error is forgetting an H
It's not like I popped out of my mom's womb with a Giants hat on.
wit a real short tongue, happy?
A kid who should be a freshman in college befriending a bunch of middle aged older men on an internet message board to this extent. It sort of reminds me of that NAMBLA episode of South Park with Cartman.
That is a steal, gentleman.
That puts us over the top.
the same as Phil, not true. They are and have been talking, but there is no deal set. What I was told that could be the case here, is the Browns people might have leaked this to Philly sources in order to get them to enter the bidding and up the price on the Giants. And it was then picked up by someone with contacts in Philly and the report was then put out. I was told the same thing as I had said a few days ago, if something happens, it'll probably be closer to the draft. My guess is that eventually it does happen.
I feel like it'd be for a first and a third. To me, that seems like a fair deal for both sides, given the Giants amount of picks. If it's a first and a fifth, that's even sweeter. It's good knowing insiders have a positive feeling about this,.
I had suspicions that the Browns leaked this to Philly. If they did, they have serious egg on their face IMO.
this tells me the Giants have made on offer that either doesnt include a first round pick as has been reported or that the Giants have offered a 1st and a 5th and the Browns want to try and get more out of Philly for Edwards.. Philly doesnt usually respond to this kind of crap however...
Definitely sounds like purposefully leaked info from the Browns camp...
Doesnt usually respond to this kind of junk either. I agree with Blue on this one.
The Eagles also arent about to trade for a guy who theyll have to pony up a ton of money too, which you know would make McNabb demand a new contract.
If this was leaked by Browns folks, its pretty pathetic. It also tells you the Giants have held pretty steady on their parameters of an offer from their end and are sticking to it.
OLT, ORT, TE and possibly Westbrook relief....all before they get Edwards or Boldin.
They are also a solid organization that will not ignore building the core..the lines and a TE/RB for McNabb
to this report though nothing has been finalized and the compensation package could well be different than what 950 reported. talks could also break off as they did once before but the initial report does have some legs from what I have heard.
we have texted back and forth
Is Neelo Neil Best or someone?
Correct ... he's someone.
But they only reported the 950 AM report from Philly, and SNY made a point to say they have not confirmed anything.
thanks so it sounds like they were just repeating the 950 report. Oh well
neelo knows all
if you really need to know just call him out
Tom Rock checked around concerning this rumor:
Made a few calls and zapped a few emails on it, Scooter. No signs of fire, although it's not beyond reason to think the two sides are talking. Seems odd that the report comes out of Philly, though. Read into that what you will.[\quote]

But I'd really love for this to be true. No one else picking up on this overnight suggests total bullshit.
As far as what we're giving up, I'd go as high as a first and a fourth, no more.
amid the quiet of the storm, one voice, a thundering voice, emerges
"it's not true"
and its obvious that both sides want to do this. This is all part of the game, i think we will come to a resolution sooner rather than later.
