Dumb post-draft trade proposals

I may have the winner:
I give up Hines Ward (because I'm heavy at WR) and shore up my RB depth with... Jamal Lewis. My silence is saying "No."
OK, let's hear the gems coming from your leagues.

In a keeper contract league I'm in, I got offered:

Ronnie Brown (3 years)
Anthony Fasano
Earl Bennett

For

Roddy White (3 years)
Jason Witten (2 years)
Leon Washington

I consider Brown to be a downgrade from White, Fasano to be a HUGE downgrade from Witten, and Bennett to be a downgrade from Bennett. I also got offered:

Lance Moore
Larry Johnson (2 years)
Basically what amounts to an 18th round pick in a standard league

For

Marion Barber
Knowshon Moreno (5 years)

I didn't had a kicker yet, and the guy said he was trying to help me get a kicker. I politely told him I would wait until my next pick.

Some idiot in my league offered me Calvin Johnson, Marion Barber, and Leon Washington for Steve Slaton and Wes Welker.

someone in my league pitched romo and kevin smith for brady and lendale white... and it was accepted!

we're one objection shy of a veto. i'm optimistic. awful trade.
