What if we trade with the Arizona Cardinals.
It would be a combo trade, we give them Carson Palmer, the 3rd pick, in return we acquire the 7th pick which we can use on a player like Jarvis Jones, Dion Jordan, Chance Warmack, Dee Milner, Jonathan Cooper. We would get their 2nd round pick and something else, if not a 3rd or an undervalued player of theirs. Or we can continue to tradedown, someone will inevitably want to jump the chargers to take Lane Johnson, so finding a potential suitor will not be that hard, we would stockpile on picks and take more potential starters.
Trading Palmer is not ideal, and i believe that if we do we would have to take a QB to develop, just in case. Matt Scott has been rising up boards and would be available in the 3rd round, someone on NFL network compared him to a Russel Wilson, and i think that would be a hopeful, optimistic but unlikely occurance, although it might be worth taking a shot. This is just insurance in case Terrelle Pryor doesnt work out or maybe he does and we can bust a backup trade to a team next year, a kevin Kolb trade. Another solution, i also like what i saw out of Kirk Cousins in the limited amount of snaps he saw behind RGIII. He would probably net at least a 2 though.
Anyways, a trade with the Cardinals would be beneficial to both teams, i cant think of a reason this cant be worked out, the cardinals would get Eric Fisher, or Joeckel, and palmer and we would get some integral pices in this hopefully curt rebuilding period. this will clear up some much needed cap space, leaving us open to become vital players in free agancy. i think an AAron Ross, sounds good, maybe a Nnamdi reunion, Eric Winston, theres many different pieces of the puzzle we can add if this trade happens. it could shoot our team from ineptitude to contenders or blow up in our face and set us back at least one or 2 years, depending on when Johhny Football declares, so lets lose all our games until then
Also we could trade down again, acquire another 3rd round pcik and a 4th i guess, we could take Matt Scott and Blidi Wreh-Wilson, a potential stud who i believ will fall to the top of the 3rd. a 6'1' CB.
Side Note: I also think we should trade Rolando and not eat up his 10 million dead money, even if it can be spread. A team like the Cincinnati Bengals is perfect. they are bound to lose Rey mauluga and we know that they are willing to take chances on potential losers(Burfict). Its better than nothing.
BOOM. did i just blow your mind.
What do u think. What are your thoughts.
