No takers for Falcons' Joe Horn

By STEVE WYCHE

Published on: 06/29/08

Despite veteran wide receiver Joe Horn wanting to be traded, Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff said there is nothing doing on that front. Horn's agent has been cleared to gauge interest in Horn with other teams but, as of now, there are no takers.

The Dallas Cowboys, who could be in need of a veteran wide receiver if Terry Glenn (knee) isn't medically cleared, were one of the teams queried by Horn's agent, but there hasn't been any talk between Dallas and Atlanta about a deal.

"I've made no contact with Dallas or they with me," Dimitroff said in a text message.

Why would anybody call about Joe Horn!  We are kicking ourselves for signing this guy!!

He'll most likely get cut in the next wave of cuts.......

Thanks Joe but no thanks!

Probably won't either.  The pick we would have gotten in a trade would probably be a player that wouldn't make the team anyways.  Dimitroff and Smith will figure something out here.

I don't even care about getting a pick in return. If we could just give him to a team and take his ridiculous contract off our books then it's worth it. He's the 5th best receiver on this team now.

Well, if you are right I'm not sure how much talking is necessary.  They offer any pick, we say yes no matter what.

We'd be lucky if the Dallas Desperados from the AFL were willing to take him! :w00t:

Dump him tonight for a foot-long from Subway, if  thats all we can get, the only thing we should  have taken from New Orleans was a years supply of crawdads! :blink:

Hopefully he's a final cut. String it out as long as possible to hope someone is stupid enough to trade for the bum.

Joe Horn bought a work ethic to our Wr that has never been seen since Mathis.

WHAT I'M WAITING ON NOW PICK, IS FOR JOE TO USE SOME OF THAT WORK ETHIC ON THE FIELD FOR HIMSELF.

DALLAS DOESN'T REALLY WANT JOE. JERRY JONES IS DOING IT TO US AGAIN. ALL JERRY'S DOING IS TIGHTENING THE SCREWS ON GLEEN. WATCH HOW IT ALL PLAYS OUT.

Spot on Rev. Great minds think alike. :D

When Schefter reported that, the first thing that came into my mind was he's just trying to scare Terry Glenn, what with this injury-settlement thing he won't sign.

Are you, in good concience, defending Joe Horn?  He's nothing more than an over the hill receiver, who has never bought into anything other than the "me-first mentality".  At the time of the signing I liked it, and I enjoy the work ethic he brought, but his attitude will never do in our locker room.
