Rapoport: Panthers expected to be in the mix for Watson.

You would be willing to sacrifice a ton of potential talent, and lose a ton of current talent over the next 5-10 years for the few measly games that could have been won this year?

Do you mean 3 players? Im assuming you are referring to us trading 3 first rounds picks (which I dont think we will offer more than 2)

 

If that's the case, I dont think we are risking "a ton" of potential talent. Just two players.

It’s Deshaun Watson and you guys would turn him away. He is massive potential actualized, not some maybe draft pick. You act like we won’t be able to draft a soul in the entire draft for 5 years. You act like we can’t sign anyone in FA. You don’t let an elite young QB pass you by. He’s a franchise changing player.

This team has some odd fans. Get a top 5 QB? No. Let’s build through the draft and hope we hit on a QB! Yay! Let’s also win a meaningless game! Hurray! 
 

DeShauns worth the next 3 first rounders if I’m honest. 

The Rams have not had a first round pick since 2016 and they seem to be doing OK for themselves.

All free agents? More reason this can be pulled off. Although, Id leave McCoy on the street.

Kinda goes against the one player away philosophy don't it?  That's called going all in for ONE shot at a SB title.

And when those few pieces get injured and the loses start piling up because you have no depth or heaven forbid your high priced big name qb that you traded away all your capital for building to acquire then what?

if we're planning on using 1st round picks on depth pieces then we should just go ahead and make this trade

 

look, i get what you're saying, but the argument here centers around us being pretty well structured and in position to build a great team, not that we aren't so and can't afford to take the chance

Turn him away? Hell no!  We can't afford him.

I am leaning into the fact that not all player acquisitions revolve around the draft.

Lol come on man. CMC is 24 years old. His best days are not behind him, and he is going nowhere.

The amount he has played through college and his pro career is really high. He probably has as many touches as another RB who is 30. Not saying CMC isn’t still a great player but he will never achieve the numbers he put up in 2019 again. He wouldn’t stay healthy for another season with that kind of usage, few players would. History has shown us that time and a lot of touches aren’t kind of RBs. If there’s a chance to trade him for Watson, I do it without hesitation.

Who said use 1st round picks on depth?  I get that you guys are star struck over Watson but the reality is he alone cannot do it all.  You need a complete team and brother this team is not complete, not even close.

I think Bridgewater, Jackson, 2021 and 2022 1st round picks and a few other pick swaps/future mid rounders should entice them enough. 

 

This is most likely going to be the offer on our end. Maybe a future 2nd/3rd.

And that strategy has rarely ever worked.  We will see what the Bucs look like next season once they get bounced from the playoffs.

Our current defense would be fine with a QB that could consistently put up 30+ points a game. Our O line is the biggest problem we would have to address. Giving up even 3 1sts would still allow us to greatly upgrade the line.
