  • Alexander to Jacksonville???

    Jaguars | Alexander Deal Discussed? - from www.kffl.com
    Mon, 6 Jun 2005 18:07:40 -0700

    Adam Schefter, of NFL.com, reports the Jacksonville Jaguars have quietly discussed a trade with the Seattle Seahawks for RB Shaun Alexander. The return price for Alexander is a third-round draft pick. The strange part, according to Schefter, is the Jaguars are the ones balking at the deal. Right now, they're not willing to pay the Seahawks or Alexander. The Jaguars, if they made the trade, would get themselves valuable insurance for RB Fred Taylor. His health status still remains cloudy.

    Will the trade be executed?

          Alexander is a franchise running back and I would trade 1st round pick for him without a 2nd thought.

          He's only 27 and has 3-5 years left at the highest level, IMO.

                You can forget that Shaun Alexander to the Jaguars trade talk. The Jaguars have no interest, according to coach Jack Del Rio. Although running back Fred Taylor is only working on the side during the team's on-field days as he recovers from knee surgery, the team is convinced that Taylor will be ready for the start of the regular season. But it's more than that for passing on any potential trade with Seattle. Aside from money issues -- they would have to sign Alexander to a long-term deal before any trade would be made -- the Jaguars like what they have seen from LaBrandon Toefield and rookie Alvin Pearman during their offseason work. Toefield battled through some injuries last year, but remember this is a player who started ahead of Domanick Davis at LSU. Plus, fullback Greg Jones could play running back in a pinch. "We like our young guys," Del Rio said. "That trade is not something we have talked about to anyone."

                The Jaguars have a big contract to get done heading into next season in the form of defensive tackle John Henderson. He is set to become an unrestricted free agent after the 2006 season, so having cap room is important, which is why Alexander makes little sense.

                  BIG MISTAKE - they have a SB defense and if they could add alexander to the O then they would be extremely dangerous.

                  taylor, toefield and jones cannot cut it..........oh well, their loss

                    Yeah, i'll be laughing when he starts crying if Fred Taylor gets an career-ending injury and wish he could go back in time to today so he could execute the trade!!!

                      Although I agree that they can't blame the coaching staff for him not getting the rushing title.. how can you say " he wasn't close."... He was VERY close.

                          I wouldnt even give that for him. Maybe a 5th rounder.

                            If Alexander, or anyone thinks that one carry in the final regular season game was what kept him fro a rushing title, he's wrong. What does he say about all those carries he had for a loss last season?

                            He was only one yard off.

                            I think that's pretty darn close.

                            Actually, statistically speaking, is it even possible to be closer than that?

                            I think you need to retract your statement.

                              Do wise-guys ever retract their statements?????
