Oh, I know- I also didn't really characterize the tone correctly. He's not necessarily supporting a trade, just predicting it (or at least 'shopping' for a trade).

Per Earl's cousin...(My wife teaches her at Lone Star College) He told her he wishes to finish his career in Texas.

You can believe me or not, doesn't matter. I will say however that this student did take an Earl jersey to him when they were in town in Dec. and got it signed at her house and my wife presented it to me for Christmas !!!!

Look what just popped up on my MSN news feed:

Without a 2nd or a 3rd, we unquestionably need draft picks, and next to Russell and perhaps Bobby Wagner, Earl is the highest value player on our roster, and with his holdout rumblings, JS has to be listening to offers.

I specifically asked my wife to question her (the cousin of ET) at school yesterday about this, and make no mistake,....

He told her, he wants to finish in Texas. Take it to the bank (just like Earl).

I still think Atlanta would be the perfect fit for him. He would line up alongside Neal who would be the equivalent of Kam and make them the best Secondary in the league.
If we could get their 1st round pick, it might help ease the pain.

From a talent perspective it would be a bit of a body blow, but a malcontent doesn't help much either and if he's gone after this contract then we might as well get something for him.
