Eagles, Bears, Niners, Titans Also Were Lelie Bidders

According to an NFL source, the other bidders for Denver Broncos wide receiver Ashley Lelie--traded Tuesday to the Atlanta Falcons in a three-way deal involving the Washington Redskins, who got Atlanta tailback T.J. Duckett--were the Philadelphia Eagles, Chicago Bears, San Francisco 49ers and Tennessee Titans.

It was thought in recent weeks that other teams were offering a fourth-round draft pick for Lelie while the Broncos wanted at least a second-round choice. They ended up getting a pick or picks from the Redskins that will depend on the two clubs' records this season. The two teams could end up exchanging first-round selections next spring and, depending on the clubs' draft spots, the Broncos also could get a third-round pick next year or a fourth-round choice in 2008. If there's no exchange of first-rounders next year, the Broncos would end up with a third-rounder next spring and a fourth-rounder in 2008 from the Redskins, the source said.

Are you kidding me? Portis, Betts and the Rock? Do we REALLY need one more back when we are picking up guys from Safeway to play corner? How 'bout trading for a back up offensive lineman that actually STARTED in the NFL before.

I agree that we need better quality back ups for the O line. If there are no holes to run through, does it matter who's the running back? Betts and Rock have proven to be commited Redskins. Unless there are unreported injury concerns, they should gone after a quality OLman or DB. If they now must trade Rock or Betts, then it proves again that the loyalty thing goes one way.
