From a few Steelers boards:

Raiders and Steelers are talking mega-trade involving Nnamdi Asomugha.

Unless there is a link, or some creditable source that you can mention that can atleast confirm the rumor; I wouldn't put any stock in it. Tomlin would have to give up SO much in the way of draft picks and/or players, it would be crazy.

the steelers almost never make trades, and when they make them they are with lesser know players.

although it would be sweet

got to love those rumors!

I heard Cleveland is interested in trading Wimbley and a 5 or 6 rd pick for Hampton too. :dunno:

I call BS, this isn't the Steelers way!! They'd rather sift through 30 UDFA's!!

From a few Steelers boards:

Raiders Nnamdi Asomugha has wanted out of Oakland basically all year.

Maybe we trade Dennis Dixon and our 1st round???

Dixon is better than all this years QB's in the draft...

you apparently know nothing about the draft.





i would love nnamdi, ive heard this being discussed, he would be exactly what ike would need, damn this defense would be ****ing sick with ike as the #2 CB

It would rock. There was rumors about this during the season as well. Obviously it never happened, and i don't see it happen now either. With that being said, it would be sick! If they got nnamdi, and drafted Earl Thomas (if we did have our first round), and we would come from the worst secondary unit in the league to one of the bests.

About the rumor, I don't know where the exact source is from. But it's in a couple of threads on the official Steelers and the Stillers forum. I only brought it up because I remember this same rumor floating around right before the trade deadline and thought it might have a hint of truth to it. I guess we can use at as food for thought.

That would be awesome, but I think we all can assume it's not going to happen. Oh well, it's nice to dream.

It would take atleast a 1st & 3rd round this year and probably another decent player to even consider this..or a 1st this year and a second next year. Yeah our secondary would be wicked if he came over here; but we all know it won't happen :evilshake:

You have to remember the contract he brings with him as well. The Steelers rarely do blockbuster trades and this one is more of a wish-list for Steelers fans.... I doubt there is any truth to this rumor whatsoever, but damn it would certainly be nice. Would bring back memories of Mel Blount.

If your making trades, you have to make your players your trading sound like the best ever.... :yellowthumb:

Why would they do that, when they could just offer him $$ during FA period, plus the Stains have Shaun Rogers.

Al Davis is insane. The Raiders have proven time and time again that you can pillage their team and take their best players for virtually nothing.

I do like the idea of Harrison for Asomougha though. Bring back Larry Foote, move Timmons to the outside, and let the Raiders have a year or 2 of James Harrison before he's done, while we take a guy who would instantly improve our secondary. I mean, Asomougha and Troy would be the stars back there, while Ike Taylor only has to be a #2 CB and Gay can go back to being the nickle back or maybe Deshea can hold down that job for another year. That secondary would be sick. Our D would be ridiculous.

I don't have a link so I am not making a new thread but according to Steelersdepot on twitter

"Steelers reportedly talking 4 year deal with kicker Jeff Reed on new contract. Deal could be $2.25-$2.50 million a season"

If that is true then Hampton is staying in Pittsburgh with the Franchise tag, I bet

No way this happens especially with the cap value of Asomugha. The Raiders have to pay him the franchise number for Quarterbacks in order to keep him through 2011.

JensK

There more i think about it, i really believe they'll tag Hampton, and i don't think he'll be too mad about it if he or his agent thinks a little. With the possible lockout, he could be without work as much as two whole years. He is not getting any younger, and the tag would give him a little more than 7mil. He could hardly find a place that could offer him more than that for a one-year deal.
