I love Leon, but I'm just not seeing why anyone would trade more than a conditional pick for a small, 28-year-old RB who suffered a compound fracture and would also need a new multi-million $ contract in an era when draft picks are such a huge commodity.
I know. I've been saying that for weeks. But people saw a story a month ago that the 49ers were interested and think they are going to trade for him. It was then, like I mentioned, reported Leon contacted Raye. But people don't seem to care.
