    6th coupled with a backup QB would be worth a 3rd that wont touch the field this year... No?

    AE has proven when used as the correct type of RB, he can be effective. We just have David Johnson who will take the majority of touches, so AE is expendable. Anything for him is better than nothing.

    As far as Stanton having trade value, who knows. No harm in testing the market though.

    Youre underestimating the extremely high value of 3rd rounders. His status on the depth chart is irrelevant. All rookies are buried on depth charts. Taking a guy in the 3rd means you plan for him to be a long term starter. I would love Tank but its going to take ALOT to pry him away.



    In regards to trading for a guy, your best option is to look for likely cap casualties who will be swiped up quickly by the waiver wire. Who? I dont know. But theres lots of aging CBs who get pushed out by younger guys every year. Trade AE for one of them.

    Fair point. Rookie deal is 4 years right? I guess it depends on how they view their team and whether they think they will be competing this year (I doubt it) or not.

    AE may not be expendable anymore with TJ getting hurt.

    AE doesnt return kick offs at least not well.

    Sadly he may be the best we have for it and it also will open up a RB spot. Ellington is more similar to Logan than Penny is.

    I hear you and agree, but Keim was here during the multi-year Butler fiasco and didn't put this foot down on that until it was way beyond the pale. So if Arians plays the loyalty card with Stanton I'd bet Keim plays ball.
