With Johnson likely out most of the season Cards are debating bringing back Chris Johnson. I assume they would rather have guys like Forte/Powell. In a pass happy offense like Arizona, I would think either would make more sense than Chris Johnson. Arians and Bowles go way back. 

A Forte trade would be good for both parties.

Why would they bother trading for Forte when they can just resign Chris Johnson.  Powell would probably make more sense for them and we should just go ahead and trade him since our coach refuses to make him the #1 back.

The Cards might not sign him, but this is an example of why laughing at the idea of Forte being traded is folly... No, Forte and his 4 million isn't anyones first choice for trading... But it only takes a few injuries to move Forte up the line. He'll be an option if more RBs keep going down like this... Especially on teams that want to be competitive.

One of the good things about being in "rebuild mode" is season ending injuries don't hurt.  Imagine

what ARZ fans are feeling like this afternoon?

Even if it's for the better of the two, what is it you think we could get?

I'm behind getting a conditional 7th rounder in 2019 for Forte just to dump his stupid contract, but I'd be shocked if Arizona or anybody wants him. But what value does Powell have?

Powell doesn't have a lot of miles on his legs, but he's still a 29 year-old RB (next month). He has this year and next year remaining on his contract. On the other hand he's a legit dual-threat out of the backfield, with experience, who isn't a useless/clueless prima donna in pass protection.

I'd guess around a 4th rounder, depending upon demand and need, but I really have no idea. 

He's not the type of player the franchise would build around in 2018, of course, but I like the idea of someone in his mold back there with a rookie QB to pick up blitzes, be a reliable dumpoff outlet, and keep an extra defender in the box by being a legit running threat. Depends if we're just going to keep using Forte-Forte-Forte all season long in his absence, and rob McGuire of playing time in a toss-away season.

Yeah but even if the Jets traded Powell or Forte, Todd would ask McCags to sign Adrian Murrell because Todd saw him once in Arizona and he loves(not) giving the ball to his rookies on offense.

They might take forte, but not his contract

Macc is familiar with dead money perhaps we eat the contract and maybe salvage a pick out of it. Something is better than nothing he's giving us.

Don't talk bad about macc. Did you know that he has more drafted players on the Jets roster than any other team?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dude I was at that game yesterday and if I were a Zona fan I would be much more worried about Carson Palmer than any RB. The guy was pathetic.

Yes he was,perhaps a package deal Forte and McCown to Arizona.

Because Forte can actually still play and is a good receiver

Macc has made great "value" picks like Darron Lee, Chris Hackenberg and Devin Smith

Forte looks like he has lost about 4 steps

Well it's hard to look all-world when you have a bottom 3 O-line that can't open up any creases for you and the attrocious passing offense results in 8 men in the box

The Cards have $8 million in cap room.  They can fit in Forte's cap number of $4 million.  Chris Johnson is done.  They are a win-now team that relies extremely heavily on its featured back.  Give them Forte for a 5th round pick.
