So if we already had quality players at both offensive tackles positions, you would be cool with trading our 3rd best T, just for the hell of it? Have we not all seen how quickly these guys can go down, and then if you do not have a quality back-up you are completely screwed...
and I view it similar to the Panthers. You can start Hill or Winston. You win about the same amount of games. You just get there differently.
Which is kinda my Darnold vs Teddy thought. We would win about the same number no matter who played QB. The games we win/loss might be different but we get to about the place in the end. Sam will however be more entertaining and therefore the better option over Teddy.
I disagree. Yeah, ideally you'd want that quality depth and if they were a contender it would be an argument to keep him as depth. As is, the Lions are likely more of a contender for the #1 overall pick than they are a SB berth. They'd be much better off trading him to bolster another roster spot or to get more draft capital IMO.
