    i understand the hate... but WVU would have advantage recruiting more north players than the rest of the SEC... compare the yards to the LSU game to how many yards they've allowed against the rest of the schools played combined... we're still a very young team and lost a few key players to graduation and to do that against the number 1 school in the nation is very promising...

    Well at least we would have a starting back that can move the pile.

    Before anyone gets started about Reggie Wayne being traded, that is not a real rumor. Schefter said it as one of those "this is a trade that should happen" things and not actual news.

    As for Lloyd, I believe he is definitely on the block. He's in the last year of his deal and the Broncos have promising young players like Eric Decker, Demaryius Thomas (if he ever gets healthy) and even Eddie Royal behind him. They are clearly a rebuilding team and it may not make sense to commit money to him.

    Lloyd makes sense as a trade target. He can stretch the field, make circus catches and really replace a lot of what Kenny Britt did (not completely, but better than anyone else on the roster now). That said, he is 30 years old and arguably has only one good season under his belt (last season). Before that, he was known as one of the least reliable receivers in league history.

    The idea of trading a 2nd round pick for him is insane to me. Maybe a 4th, but a 2nd is way too much to give up for what might amount to a rental player (he will want a big contract after this season). The Titans might see this as their year (all they have to do is beat the Mario Williams-less Texans), but you can't mortgage the future like that.

    Nah, we'd just have a starting RB that'd add to the pile of garbage we already have.

    If you're going to trade a high pick for a 30 year old player, you'd better be dang sure that they are going to be all-pro level.

    A second is too steep in my opinion, especially for a guy who has had one good year. I'm all for parting with a fourth though. Get a veteran with Nate to help us make this run to the playoffs. Then next year when Britt comes back have a 3 headed monster at receiver, assuming he proves he can play.

    If we could get him for a 3rd I'd probably pull the trigger. A 2nd is definitely too much though. Even a 3rd is questionable but we're so thin at WR I'd be okay with it.

    We all know Lloyd isn't quite as good as his 2010 stats suggest. But he'd be a pretty significant upgrade over D-Will and Hawk.
