Would it be stupid to offer a draft pick (mid round) for an established solid kicker?

Who is even offering a reliable kicker for trade more importantly?

Probably nobody. I guess my thoughts were in hoping to entice a team by throwing a 4th out there but as was brought to my attention with the shortage of good kickers in the league right now that probably wouldn't get us anything anyhow.

Very true, I guess it was just wishful thinking on my part. And yep Gano or Butker sure do look like nice options these days don't they! I admit I was on the Gano hate train and am now eating my words.

Its why a handfull of us said we would never be successful until Hurney was gone. He was a horrible GM and even Tepper admitted he fugged up. Moving forward I have faith in our FO to improve that position going forward.

I was actually thinking about this the other day:

What is Justin Tucker's value in terms of a draft pick?

The Ravens would never trade him, but hypothetically, how high of a pick would you be willing to give up to have an automatic Kicker for the next 7+ years?

To me it's at least a 4th rounder, hell, maybe even a 3rd.

Yeah, sorry. As others have mentioned, teams that have a good kicker aren't likely to let them go. And nobody I know of is carrying two on the main roster (not even Washington).

Shopping for a kicker at this time of year likely means trying to pluck somebody up and coming off a practice squad (like what happened to us with Butker) or find a surprising free agent (a lot less likely).

it's hard to agree to this hypothetical, to be honest. you'd have to know that a particular kicker was available. and really, there's only a handful of kickers who would be worth that kind of compensation.

it's too easy to get replacement level production by scouring the waiver wire and plucking off practice squads like the Panthers have been doing.

Said team would have to be WILLING to give up said kicker. You're not gonna trade for a Gano, Butker, or a Tucker. 

Prior and even current management screwed the pooch at this position. If memory serves, Gano was cut in favor of Slye under Rhule / Marty as a cap casualty so there may not have been a choice. 

Rivera / Marty lost Butker off the PS, they should have assigned a ghost injury and set him on the IR (see Fletcher).
