It depends on if you're a gambler. Both of the players you're giving away might have amazing years. Only 1 of the players you're getting is elite, and honestly I'd probably cut the Housh as soon as I got him. But GJ is all but guaranteed a great year and the other too aren't.'

So yeah, I guess I do it, but not doing it has a non-insignificant change of paying off more.

Really?

Immediately?

Sure the guy had a disappointing year, but he also had broken ribs and a hernia...He's still SEA's #1 WR and ya gotta think their entire passing game should be better than last year? Sure, he doesn't have an Ocho5 to take coverage away (unless Golden is golden?), but this cat was one of the top 12-13 WRs the following 4 years before last...

IMO, he rally has no downsize with where he's being drafted and only upside this season...

I agree, Jennings should be a stud once again w/ that offense

Great trade cause VJax is being a gigantic bitch this offseason and is at least missing the first 3 games, IIRC.

He'll probably miss more than that.

This was from Rotoworld a few days ago.

Vincent Jackson's placement on the Roster Exempt List means that he will miss three OR six regular season games, regardless of whether he's traded.
The Roster Exempt distinction travels with V-Jax if he's shipped to Seattle. Already suspended for Weeks 1-3, he'll miss the first six games if he fails to sign his restricted free agent tender prior to September 4. If a trade is to happen, he needs to sign his tender. Otherwise, an unlikely midseason trade would be his best bet if he's going to play at all this year.
