    True, considering the risk involved with Blackmon the price is not going to be high enough for Jax to trade him at this point.

    He is an agent now, I dont think he wants anything to do with being a GM again.

    Would inquiring about the asking price be foolhardy.I don't think so.

    I dont think any team wants anything to do with him as a gm.

    1) We don't know how many picks we'll get / what rounds we'll get them in
    2) Best we can expect is picks in Rd 5 onwards
    3) If Jax will give up Blackmon for a couple of day 3 picks, then fine do the trade. But they won't, so it's academic

    You talk about Blackmon being a huge difference maker for us, but expect Jax to let him go for next to nothing. This isn't Madden, it's real life.

    Maybe they already have? It's not like we'd hear if they did.

    I would offer the 3rd we got from Tampa,plus additional mid round picks.As long as we keep our 1 and two this year and in 2015.

    S.Holmes came to us for a 5th(I think) after being named SB MVP. Similar issues as Blackmon, why give up a 3rd for him? 4th maybe but its a pipe dream as some other poster said Blackmon is 1/3 of the QB/WR/RB crew needed

    Fine - go ahead and offer. But why on earth would Jax do this??? So he has "issues" - doesn't mean they're trying to dump him in exchange for a bag of footballs.

    Let me put it another way - would you trade Coples for a low 3rd round pick and additional mid round picks?

    The only thing that contributes to sustainable success is the QB... Even a defense as good as Rex's only gets you 6 wins minimum. It's on the QB to get the rest in today's NFL.

    The Pats have done nothing in running a team to maintain sustainable success outside of keeping Tom Brady. Indy had a trash team for years around Peyton Manning. It's all about the QB.


    If you think Geno is the answer, then you can start making moves like Blackmon, but otherwise, hang on and keep looking for the QB. You simply aren't winning a super bowl anymore without one.

    The Cleveland Browns surprisingly get that. Now the question is whether or not the QB they get is a star or not.

    Horrible comparison. One is considered to take plays off sometimes and the other has had multiple run ins with the law. Blackmon has already been suspended for 4 games and is 1 strike from 8 games.

    I'm just trying to point out that teams don't give up on last year's #1 draft pick for next to nothing in return.

    And if he's such a guarantee to get suspended then I want no part of him, bargain or not. Can't have it both ways.

    Well that's why a trade makes no sense for either side. I bet he'll be moved next year around the deadline tho

    Step away from the crack pipe.

    Until we are sure that Geno is a good NFL starter, we need to hoard draft picks so that we can get one.

    How about Michael Crabtree? He isn't the problem Blackmon is & has more experience. Plus 49ers may not need him. Don't know what his contract is looking like though.

    I would dangle Stephen Hill & a 4th, maybe a 3rd (since we'll have 2) for Crabtree.
    Hill is a positive player, developing slowly & real nice contract.

    Wouldn't give up a 3rd for Blackmon, maybe Powell added though. Powell needs to be replaced with Seatrunk.

    Would prefer Crabtree (allow him to sit rest of the season to rest & heal up), then take a chance with Kenny Britt. He shouldn't cost us what his talent is really worth due to his recent team problems. Britt, Crabtree & Kerley is a very nice group of receivers, if not elite. Then I would go hard for Jimmy Graham.

    Kenny Britt, Michael Crabtree, Jeremy Kerley, Jimmy Graham, Chris Ivory & Lache Seastrunk(hopefully) would be all the weapons for Geno to succeed. Especially with this defense, which would be even better next year.
