        This move should work out well for Thomas as a mentor and having a Vet like Robertson play with him.

        It came through that it is a 2009 conditional pick. I would have rather gave up a 4th rounder this year.

        I think this 09 conditional pick is going to turn to be atleast a 3rd next year. I think the Jets were able to get the most value out of this trade that they could... They are not going to have him at a DE in a 3-4 and he is not a NT... Specialy with their recent signing.

        I think the physical thing is pretty misleading. This is "after" season when they are no longer in game shape and very beat up. This guy missed a couple games over his career now? I bet he stays healthy and performs well.

        A lot of people mention aboput being worried about his knee... I think it is fine just the end of the season stuff

        He is penetrating type tackle and is far better in a 4-3 defensive scheme, rather then a 3-4. Even though he has not lived up to the expectations of a fourth overall draft pick... I think it could make a big difference being in a different environment.

        I feel good about the move... think it worked out well for both clubs.
        I agree, Shanahan obviously safe guarded himself and the team with the "CONDITIONAL" 09 draft pick. IMO this is a low risk, high reward type of deal. The deal is more than likely geared towards performance incentives, playing time and such. I'm DEFINITELY excited about this year. All I want is OT Chris Williams from Vandy and RB Ray Rice from Rutgers. I don't mind Mendenhall at all but IMO OT is more important right now. Just my take on things.

              I hope that potential 2nd rounder is if he is a Super Bowl MVP....4th and a 5th or a 2nd rounder...hmm not too excited.

                This was just for a conditional 09' pick right. If this is the case then I love it.

                  One pick

                  It is only for one pick in 09 and is a late round pick according to nfl.com. This is a no lose situation for the broncos

                    i think this signals that we're either taking a running back, kenny phillips or an OT in the first round.

                    with most signs pointing to OT, which i think is by far the smartest move. we do not need kenny phillips nearly, nearly, as much as we need say, clady or a lineman of some kind. i'd be happy with mendenhall, thrilled really despite what i've been saying about not needing him, only if we drafted an OT in the second and somewhere later as well.

                    that's what i think we should do and this year, i also thikn it's what will happen.
