   Blount for Tebow; interesting idea, and Rex Ryan just might be crazy enough to do it...

I am in no way in favor of trading Blount, however, there are a couple players who intrigue me...Kendall Hunter, or Jacobs, Taiwan Jones, Ben Tate, DeAngelo Williams or Jonathan Stewart...although the latter would probably never happen unless it were straight up player for player because of the division rival thing...

Just a little food for thought.

No team is going to give the Bucs anything for Blount.

Why not ? They gave us something for the Gimpy Cheeseburger...

What is your point? I was wrong? Ok. You win. I was wrong.

Blount has value.

\\\\\\\"Java, do you understand this a perfect example of why people beg me to suspend or ban you on a daily basis? Are you actually trying to make a point? Seriously what is the reason for even commenting. In fact why do you even bother coming to the boards? What happened to the intelligent poster from years ago?  A real shame. Like the Bucs yesterday, a wasted effort.\\\\\\\"

Blount has value.

I think you're overvaluing him. You'll be surprised when we only get a late draft pick for him

I've come to the conclusion that Blount is a feature back.

He's not a 3rd down back, he's not a goal line back.

He may have more value outside OBP than he does inside it right now.

I can't see us scoring better than a 3rd for him, because he isn't a professional. If he knew how to be a pro, he would be worth a lot more....A 3rd is stretching it.

That is the value I was referring too.   The other guy said he has NO value.

LeGarrette Blount - RB - Buccaneers
"Several" league executives tell CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora that they would not be surprised if LeGarrette Blount were shipped out of Tampa Bay prior to Tuesday's 4PM ET trade deadline.
The same execs named Rams WR Steve Smith, Browns QB Colt McCoy, and Dolphins QB Matt Moore as trade candidates, although the latter is much less likely with Ryan Tannehill coming off Week 8 knee and quad injuries. A Blount trade would probably the the least surprising of the group. The Bucs can move forward with D.J. Ware and rookie Michael Smith behind featured workhorse Doug Martin. We suspect they couldn't get back more than a sixth- or seventh-round pick.

Agree with that...late rounder.  I would do it, then parlay the extra pick to move up in April.

for that low of a pick...it isn't worth it. If that were the case, we'd just keep him and he wouldn't cost us a damn thing...we can tender him with a 1st or 3rd pick and if anybody decides to bite they'll owe us at least that...if we don't get a back in place of him, we will regret it.

Like Hate said, what happens when/if Martin goes down. Ware to me is nothing more than what Kregg Lumpkin was last year. Smith outside of playing against scrubs in the preseason, hasn't shown anything worthy of being able to carry any type of load yet. He can't even get active on special teams to replace Benn as a KR...

Getting rid of Blount until you have a worthy replacement for him would be simply put...DUMB. I don't think Dom makes this mistake again. aka being comfortable letting Carnell go and Lumpkin taking his place.

We are not going to the Super Bowl anyway, so get Ware and Smith plenty of backup work behind Martin, and see what you have for next season.
