Possible OLB Trades

So, I am gone for all of ONE day, and chaos ensues. Chris Ivory is gone for three weeks. Jonathan Casillas is gone for the season. Everybody is going crazy over our depth at OL and DL, especially DT.

 

Concerning our OL depth, when, in the PayLoo era, have we been worried about that? Never. Why? Because our O-Line always steps up and plays better than anybody expects.

 

As Friarbob said, our DT depth shouldn't worry anybody either. Sure, it would have been nice to keep somebody like Kendrick Clancy or DeMario Pressley over Adrian Arrington. But who will be worth more in a trade for an OLB? A DT, or someone like Lance Moore. What's that? Moore is too valuable in the slot to be moved? Not if Marques Colston moves to the slot. By keeping Arrington, we now have 4 WRs who can play the outside- Colston, Arrington, Devery Henderson and Robert Meachem -, with 2 guys who can play the slot- Colston and Moore. Not to mention our TEs and Reggie Bush, who can all play away from their natural positions if we need to.

 

So here's some OLBs who could be available in a trade for the right price.

 

To New Orleans:

OLB Kamerion Wimbley

 

To Oakland:

WR Lance Moore

2010 3rd Round Pick

 

Reasoning: Wimbley is a very good young OLB(even though NFL.com has him listed at DE, he is an OLB). He has over 200 combined tackles in 4 years, 1 INT, 7 forced fumbles and 4 passes defensed. He would be a great help in our run defense, and he has shown that he can at least somewhat play coverage. The Raiders biggest hole is at WR, and why not get a good, proven NFL veteran to help their new QB. Moore would give Jason Campbell a solid, dependable target, something he will need if Darrius Heyward-Bey's first season is anything to go by.

 

To New Orleans:

 

OLB Leroy Hill

 

To Seattle:

WR Lance Moore

OLB K.C. Asiodu

2010 3rd Round Pick

 

Reasoning: Leroy Hill has fallen out of favor with the Seahawks in large part thanks to his arrests on marijuana possesion and domestic abuse. He has been suspended for the first game of the season, but he is still one of the better young OLBs in the game today. He has 375 tackles in 6 seasons, along with 6 forced fumbles, 11 passes defensed and 14.5 sacks. The Seahawks have missed on their last few big-name receiver pick-ups( T.J. Houshmandzadeh, Deion Branch and Nate Burleson), but Lance Moore is a quick, sure-handed receiver in the middle. K.C. Asiodu knows the division, having played for the Rams last year.

 

There's probably a few more guys that the FO will take a look at, but these two are guys that make the most sense to be traded. If there's anybody else you think we could get for a reasonable amount, write in the comments below, and we'll see if anyone comes close to what the FO does.
