I, as in myself personally, would not want him for a steep price. But I think he will have a steep price. What's so hard to understand?

It's like when DA supposedly had an asking price of a 1st and 3rd after the 07 season. I, as in me personally, did not think he was worth that. But I thought he would be appraised as such.

Whether or not NE throws in their own first rounder, giving up #6 overall for Mallet is absurd. NE is the same team that traded Matt Cassel AND Mike Vrabel for one 2nd rounder, a 4th round pick for Randy Moss (one of the greatest trades in NFL history) NE obviously values draft picks but not necessarily first round picks. The highest I would want them to go would be next year's 2nd.

There is some success with doing it. You mentioned Schaub, there is also Brett Favre (Atlanta to Green Bay), Matt Hasselback (Green Bay to Seattle) and of course Seneca Wallace from Seattle to Cleveland. (2 out of 3 aint bad)

I personally like Mallet, especially with our current crop of receivers, runnin back, o-line, and OC. I think he is better than any of the QBs in the draft this year and worth a conditional pick from next years draft based on playing time and win percentage/playoff appearance.

Also wouldn't mind exploring something with Alex Smith or Josh Freeman as it seems he's not in Schiano's plans.

By the way, where a guy was drafted has nothing to do with his trade value. A player is worth what a team is willing to pay for him. Usually that means a discount but not always.

Now, I understand, you greatly over estimate players values. Got it.

I wouldn't want to give up what the Patriots would likely demand. I imagine they'd want at least a third and I'm not willing to give that up, especially since the Browns don't have a second-round pick. If the Browns were to give up a third-round pick for a QB, there's several QBs that I rather have instead of Mallet.

I'm always amused when people mention the two years behind Brady. The same thing was said about every backup he's had, and none of them have shown that. Mallett was a strong armed guy with accuracy and decision making problems and questions. His very limited play time has done nothing to make me believe he's not still the same prospect just because he gets to play with New England's scrubs in the preseason

Weren't there reports after that season that Savage turned down a 1st and a 3rd and said "we are not trading DA"? Maybe I'm remembering wrong since that was my freshman year of college.

I think his ceiling is Joe Flacco with his floor being very DAesque.

The question is Is it worth a spin at the wheel to figure out which one he is? And at what cost to spin the wheel. For a fourth or fifth it may be worth it...

Frankly I'd rather trade for Terrelle Pryor than Mallett. What does Mallett have that Weeden doesn't, except 15 fewer NFL starts? And spare me the age logic - the guys 29 not 35 ....if he plays for 8 seasons that's FOUR times as many years as any QB we've had.

No, I think Turner & Chud will be a Godsend for Weeden (and for TR too IMO)
