Falcons engaged in Sanu trade talks


Recommended Posts

Sanu is a team leader, would be regrettable for him to leave for just a 3rd-round pick. We could save money on his salary by having him as B/U QB, and having Bosher compete with him for a job. He could also replace a couple of coaches. He is a leader, like Allen, Julio, Freeman. No team ever has enough of those, and you do not give them away for trinkets.

No secret here I'm a big Sanu fan and of the opinion that his contract value is on par with his team contribution, which is extremely rare in this age of Monopoly money contracts...Dude is all effort, all the time, even/especially when the rest of the team looks to be taking game life easy...

It's a shame, because his cost will probably scope us out of contention for him to retire a Falcon.  He has been one of my most favorite FA signings ever.

Teams can express interest in a player on another team or teams can explore interest from other teams in a player but that does not mean that player is on the trading block.

I am sure the Falcons were hearing trade offers in recent offseasons about Julio given his contract problems, but that does not mean the team really wants to trade him.

They also have probably been hearing offers for Grady and even might have casually asked "friendly" teams what they would give for him given his 2019 payroll hit and future free agency possibility.

For those who don't know, Michael Lombardi actually had his last name changed to Lombardi.

 

He admitted it on an episode of Inside the NFL years ago.

 

His real last name is Smith.

Yep

 

It was years ago back when Cris Collinsworth was on the show. He was asked during a questions segment was he related to Vince Lombardi. Micheal then admitted that he really wasn't and he changed his name because he thought it would be cool and it would help get recognition for his career.
