They tried to get to No. 4, so that they could add A.J. Green. The Bengals said, “No thanks.” So Julio wasn't the first choice. They really wanted Green.Holmgren: “The trade was kind of an amazing trade when you count it up. Next year we’ve got a one and a four and it’s what we needed.”Translation: Man I can't believe those idiots gave up that much for a #2 WR.Is there a receiver currently in the NFL for whom a team would or should give up two first-round draft picks, a second-round pick, and two fourth-round draft picks? Maybe Larry Fitzgerald or Andre Johnson.Ummm, it's comical that anyone on here at this point can justify the nonsense of this move. After watching the anus pounding by the GB packers, Thomas "always trying and failing to be the smartest man in the room" Dimitroff thinks selling the farm for a #2 WR who has the dropsies is going to solve the atrocious defense and noodle-like soft mental QB. He's done, this is one of the more laughable moves in NFL history. Yet some of you try and justify it. HILARIOUS Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
