This makes no sense. There's absolutely no reason to trade him for a first. There are several players on this team that are worth much, much more than a first rounder, and Cam is one of them.
You make it sound like you can easily replace his production with a single first round pick...
I think recent young QB successes have blinded a lot of you guys to how long it can take players to develop in this league.
You realize for this to work JR has to shell out big bucks for the following:
Head coach: one who gets the new age spread rage in the league and will insist on autonomy and be twice as expensive as any head coach we have ever had...$$$
OC: probably the brightest mind on the market who will also be getting interest from low tier teams (like us) for head coach...$$$
QB coach: A guy who will be talented enough to garner interest from lower tier teams as an OC and demand OC money....$$$
Entirely new Wide receiver corps: Ginn might be able to stick due to special teams and his wheels and Smitty might stick as a slot if he is willing to take a back seat to two shiny new cyborg bookends... think julio and roddy....$$$$
bye bye running backs: Will never be able to afford them: we will draft a new guy in the third every year and hope one sticks... think Donald Brown or maybe a barner
bye bye defensive front 7: Cant afford that either. The game will be to protect the Cammy Cam and score 45 points every week. Defense be damned. Captain Munnerlyn would be a highlight in the backfield we would put together.
Big bucks O-line: We would have to draft or break the bank to acquire at least 3 pro bowl o-lineman to compliment Kalil and hope like hell that 5th spot can be supplemented by rotation. It will take too long to get 4 of them before Kalil times out. $$$
TE: In the middle of this, the biggest overhaul of any team in history and unprecedented rush to arms, we will need another guy who can do what Olsen does. Maybe even a guy a bit better than him who can block all day if need be despite his elite athletic ability and ball skills. (hint: these are the hottest commodities in the league right now as far as skill positions go, and they want the ball, not block for the dancing bear)....$$$
So the three best offensive new-age coaches one can think of... Blow up the D and the run game (contracts.... contracts)... Magically acquire Three pro-bowl lineman, Two freaks of nature receivers and a hall of fame TE... Convince Smitty to play slot behind the new guys or break him off at the knees too. Bye Bye Kuech, Star, and CJ.
How long do you think something like this will take? Do any of you actually think this is even possible?
And the kicker... considering that even half of this is feasible in the short run who among you actually believe Jerry Richardson is ever gonna even attempt to make a splash this big?
You people just say things that you want or think we need without even considering what it means.
