Star Chasing


Dan Snyder and Vinny Cerrato continue their quest for the big prize - seemingly undeterred by the boundaries of fair value - but it continues to appear as if their lust for a new top WR will succeed. Perhaps if they continue to add more draft picks to the booty someone will let them have a receiver off their roster; it's generally how these two operate and teams and agents know if you wait it out a bit the Skins are prone to toss more draft picks and/or money in the pot.

Again, this comes as no surprise, as we began chronicling the quest to land Chad Johnson about four months. Then, a few months after that, we discussed how the Skins would then turn to another Drew Rosenhaus client, Anquan Boldin, if they couldn't have Chad. I would imagine they would make an offer for Roy Williams as well at some point.

The Lions, like the Cards and the Bengals, have been stout in rebuffing trade advances for these receivers to this point. Things have a way of changing just before the draft, though I really don't see it in these cases, again, unless Snyder and Cerrato make such an over-the-top offer no one could say no.

They want out of this 21st pick, which is easy to understand, but I'm not sure they'll be able to get much value trading down, either. As Cerrato said on Tuesday, maybe a team will be hot to move up for a QB when the Skins get on the clock, but there are no guarantees.
