    You think they get any offers? I think Wheeler has a much better chance then Ellerbe.

    Are you Wheeler's agent?

    To be fair though, regardless of what anyone thinks, they won't be getting no offers because the players skill level. It will be because every other team knows we're cutting them. They won't be teamless this year.

    Both players have value in the right position in the right scheme. If someone trades for one of the two, it'll be Ellerbe I think.

    um they already cut wheeler, post june 1st tag or whatever it's called. So, gunna be tough to trade a player that is a free agent.

    They have to wait until the start of the league year(4pm today) in order to cut someone with a June 1st designation, I believe.

    Opposite. Wheeler has the fairer contract with only a $3.0 million salary this year, and despite his struggles in 2013 arguably playing the wrong position, he played well in 2012 and 2014 playing more similar positions.

    You would have to include Cam Wake, to move Ellerbe and his cap hit in a trade.

    No but he is making less money and I think is a better player at this point. Plus Ellerbe is coming off injury. Simple logic there. :)

    I thought they cut both of them too but apparently both of them are on the trade block.

    If they're short on office supplies or toiletries they can always just send Dawn's assistant to Wal-Mart and simply cut both these guys. At least they'd spare themselves the embarrassment of offering Wheeler/Ellerbe for matching paper weights.
