- If we can get a 5th for Dixon, replace him with Marecic WITH MINIMAL DROP OFF ON ST, then we come out ahead.
And I'm sure Dixon wants more playing time. He seems like a guy that will appreciate the opportunity.
Not even close. Cmon geek, I expect better evaluation from you.
And we're not going to be getting a trade of that value so its not gonna happen.
Think a bit deeper. If we get outstanding trade value, then we'll trade him, no doubt. He's not untouchable.
Look, I don't want him traded. He's developed tremendously under Harbaugh and a great locker room and ST guy.
But Baalke has no trouble trading these guys for draft picks if it makes sense. We traded Haralson to the Saints, picked up a draft pick, and Skuta has been playing very well as his replacement. We traded Cam Johnson, too.
If we can get good value for him, I say trade him. If not, then we should honor the contract and let him be part of a team contending for the super bowl.
