Found no thrill on Blueberry Hill
- Sep 9, 2008
Since the Jimmy G trade would be voided immediately for a cap violation I think I have no choice but to take the Carolina trade. ;0)So you're Belichick and after SF makes the pick of, say, Mac Jones, they call you and offer you JG (who has already agreed to the trade) for a 2022 second round pick. Meanwhile, you've got Carolina willing to trade you the #8 pick - with which you are hoping to take Trey Lance or Justin Fields, one of which you are pretty convinced will be there at #8 - in exchange for #15, a 2021 second round pick, and, say, a 2022 third round pick.
If you trade for JG, you could use #15 on another stud player - an offensive tackle or DL or CB or even one of the stud WRs - and keep all your 2021 draft ammo, probably even trading *back* and picking up a 2022 second rounder for your trouble. But then you've got JG as your QB at $25 million, as opposed to a rookie on a rookie deal.
Which option would you choose in this scenario?
