When has a blockbuster NFL trade worked out for the team who gives up everything?


Recommended Posts

So long as we keep one of Burns or CMC I think we’ll be alright.

This stuff about trading two firsts with CMC, Burns, and Robby Anderson is wack though.

That only works if we get picks in return as well. I’m talking multiple second and thirds.

Julio has been alright in Atlanta

Yeah, what’s a blockbuster trade? Giving up 2 1sts? Watson, Allen and Mahomes were all trade ups with either 2 firsts+ or 1 first and 2 seconds. Elway and Eli were pretty big trades. GB trading for Favre worked out. The 49ers gave up their first three picks to move up to the Patriots pick and got Jerry Rice, kind of worked well.

Steelers trading for Minkah Fitzpatrick.  Seahawks trading for Jamal Adams.  Cardinals trading for Deandre Hopkins.  
 

to name a few...

Remind me of what the teams gave up for those players and the positive results for the teams that acquired them. Just curious

What did it get them? The Steelers and Seahawks didn't get a bump from those players and both  are in bad good shape going forward.

And those weren't close to blockbuster trades either.  We beat the Cardinals....lol

OP should be asking the reverse here.... how many blockbuster trades didnt work out for the team that traded for the player?

Since blockbuster trades arent very common in the NFL, i think its less than you can count on one hand. A quick google search brought me this, and there is only 3 NFL players on here....

The individual has been a great player but what have the Falcons really done with him?

didnt they get to the super bowl and come within one quarter of winning it? I believed Matt Ryan also won a MVP award thanks to Julio as well.

Oh and Julio jones owns a poo load of WR records as well..... Falcons came out alright in that deal consider over half the nfl cant hit on their 1st round picks.

The trade packages that are being discussed now are exaggerated to the point that about the only comparison is the Herschel Walker trade.
