Peters...to trade or not to trade

Looking at espn.com, as well as other sites (including this one), there are many sources saying that the Bills will trade Jason Peter's and many saying the opposite.

Here is how I rationalize the situation. Let's go ahead and assume that we can get a 1st and 3rd round pick for him. So, with our 11th or the pick received through a trade we must get a LT. Whether we pick Oher, Smith, or better prospects if they drop somehow, is impossible to know. Are any of these rookies going to  have more talent than Jason Peters...even a few years into their career? I honestly doubt it. So you have to think about whether the 3rd round pick is worth the discrepancy btw Peters and who we would draft in the 1st if peters was traded. My opinion is that even if we get a steal with our newly acquired 3rd rd pick, having a great LT, is more pivotal.

That said, Peters is a pile of talent lacking motivation. It is quite obvious that he would rather be anywhere....the proof in his inability to compromise on his contract. I truly believe that he set his demands so high, knowing that the Bills would be stupid to meet them. If the Bills pay him, he wins, if the bills trade him, he wins .However; I have a hard time believing anyone will pay him 11+ mil a year. I think deep down he knows this. He just wants out.

We will never be able to get Jason Peters to try as hard as he can in Buffalo. He will never truly dominate like we know he can when he applies himself. Some say that if we are able to get him on the field this year, that he will play to his ability, since he will be auditioning. Isn't that essentially what he was doing last year? I was not too impressed.

A happy and motivated Jason Peters = a complete, dominant, and game changing player. He can not be this great player in Buffalo and is therefore less valuable than a very good LT in the draft as well as a third round talent.

Trade this man, so we can get exited about some new players that want to be Bills. Then someone else will have to Deal with his talent.
