Potential Draft Day Trade?

It's staggering what GM's give to backup QBs hoping they will make their teams winners:

Cassel

Cassel and the Chiefs worked out a six-year deal that will pay him in excess of $10 million a season, according to a source. The contract will keep Cassel with the Chiefs until 2014.

The deal is for $63 million, with $28 million guaranteed, according to a source. He's going to make $40.5 million in the first three years of his contract.

Kolb

Kolb, who turns 27 next month, will sign a five-year contract for just under $64 million that includes $21 million guaranteed, a person familiar with the deal told The Associated Press.

We have Cam under contract for what, 4 years 22 million?

All these desperate GMs can suck our collective cocks. :lol:

I don't get the Flynn hysteria, either. But, Joe Philbin, Flynn's Offensive Coordinator from last year, is now the Head Coach in Miami. So there's definitely a connection there.

Agreed, and it makes great fodder on ESPN. But is it a sound NFL decision?

I think not.

Like Marty is sitting around thinking "hmm, maybe we should start thinking about how we are going to put a team on the field this year, you know, with that cap thing".

Stop worrying about the cap. There are several very smart people working in the front office that know what to do.

Every team finds the money it needs to get the players it wants. Short term, the cap is just something to work around. The cap is more problematic long-term if teams mis-handle it.

Edit: Kurb types faster.

Can someone post the full draft value chart? I haven't been able to find it anywhere.

I think this is going to be one of the crazier draft days. Obviously, its important to keep in mind there are two months until the draft and obviously a lot will change depending on free agency. Something tells me there are going to be a number of trades and I just hope Marty has us coming out on the good end of it for once.

Personal opinion for sure, but I would do my best to trade back (for the right price) unless Claiborne fell to us. Outside of him there are far too many opinions from scouts as to how the next 10-15 players shake out.

Tannyhill in the mix changes everything for us. It's a good thing, no doubt.

Meh, I've been toying with the idea of a scenario like last year with 4 Qb's taken in the top 12, I'm just not sure the situation is quite the same. I think it will be tough for us to trade down, but who knows? Maybe Richardson falls to us and someone wants him badly enough to trade up. As for the Rams pick, some reports say they want three 1st rounders for the pick, no QB is worth that in my opinion. I think when it's all said and done, Washington will move up and take RGIII for only two 1st rounders and a couple extra picks.

I don't see why anybody would trade up with us for Tannehill. The Bills wont take a QB after giving Fitzpatrick that massive contract and the Chiefs wont take Tannehill over Cassell. The first team likely to take Tannehill is Seattle and even that isn't certain. Going by the value chart you're saving yourself a low 3rd/high 4th by trading with the Chiefs rather than us.

If Seattle don't take Tannehill then he will probably fall to the 2nd round, in which case any of the QB needy teams could trade back into the late 1st (likely with the Pats) for him. We probably offer the least value trade for Tannehill.
