I really needed a TE and I feel Witten is at the lowest value he will ever be. He was targeted a ton vs Seattle but uncharacteristically he dropped a ton of passes. If he gets back on track getting him is huge. I wanted Mikel Leshoure because he has the chance to be a supestar coming back from suspension. A really boom or bust acquisition. I also really wanted to trade away Michael Turner because if you look at his yards per carry they're terrible, and hes slow as hell. If the Falcons are smart they will start using him less, and I think they might. He does keep getting carries at the goaline though, which is his only real value.
So I hope my trade becomes a case of buying low and selling high. We shall see
