    That's a bummer. Was really hoping he would work out.

    Wonder if this means we keep Riddick instead of releasing him?

    Or maybe a vet minimum reunion with DeAndre Washington. He was always semi-productive when he had to fill in here.

    So we just traded our 3rd round draft choice, and a 6th rounder in the next draft to Miami for McMillan, and a 5th round pick. I guess.. it's... ok.

    hopefully they're picking ahead of us in the draft.

    didn't Deandre sign with Kansas City?... never mind... just saw that he got released by KC.

    I mean it's a waste in the sense that he never saw the field but they got value back from him.

    Also nice to see gruden and mayock not hold onto a mistake because of draft position.

    Wait, what?!???

    We traded Bowden (a 3rd round pick) and a 6th round pick for only a 4th round pick in return? Am I reading that right??? If so, WTF are we doing?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    well. we need better scouts. You can't go around and be wasting 2nd rounders/3rd rounders on players that will be cut. We don't have the luxury to waste draft picks. Reggie was terrible at drafting. He wasted at least 3 2nd rounders on players that were cut within 2 years. Obi, Jihad, Menelik Watson.

    Exactly right.

    And given that we didn't have a 2nd round draft pick in this year's draft, and Bowden was the first guy we drafted in the 3rd, he needed to be more than just another chip that you move before the season starts. He had to be as close to a can't-miss prospect as you can get. I thought it was a bit of a gamble to draft him there to begin with, but if Mayock and Gruden saw that he fit some needed element in our offense, fine, I was willing to give them the benefit of the doubt.

    But to trade Bowden plus our 6th rounder for a 4th? No, you don't do that. That's not a net positive or even net neutral deal. That's the definition of lost value. This sort of thing can't happen to a team that is trying not to have yet another sub .500 season.

    Seriously, WTF is going on in LV?

    Well, technically they traded a 3rd and a sixth for a 4th and a LB who canít cover. Thankfully the league is in run heavy mode and he wonít have to come off the field 65%-70% of the time. Oh wait...

    Devontae Booker had a strong camp and they kept him instead. If Bowden was being out played better to get something for him instead of releasing him or hoping he makes it to the practice squad which he wouldn't have IMO.
