Marshall trade value

I have Colston, VJax and Manningham, with A. Gonzalez likely coming off of IR in a couple weeks. I'd like to trade Marshall while the gettin' is good, preferably for a TE, as mine are pretty bad (McMichael (or Pettigrew if my claim goes through) and Watson), and the waiver wire is empty since everyone has to carry 2. Does Marshall for Vernon Davis or Chris Cooley sound reasonable? I've been offered Shockey, but I think I can do better.

I've no love for Marshall, but he's a gifted athlete, and it looks like he's ready to play up to his talent again.

You could say the same about Davis, except he's never shown he can be a consistent producer. Cooley might be a good enough swap, but for a possible elite WR, I'd prefer to get an elite TE - Clark, Gates, or Witten. It's hard to forget Cooley's 1 TD a year ago, or ignore how anemic the Washington offense is.
