Eddie Jones is too high a caliber player(in the mind of the public anyway)
for this trade to work.

If Gaston doesn't want to pay Walker how's he going to pay Marbury?

Foolish and unlikely. Stewart is a wonderful shotblocker, but a poor
defender(He's like a rich man's Keith Closs, a shotblocker without the bulk

second coming of Travis Knight capwise. Will he leave his hometown,
Sacremento? Remember he lives with his parents.
