It was a different situation because Brown had two years left on a rookie deal and is likely to continue getting better or level off at a high level.And we gave a first round pick for Brown?
Hop is on his third contract and looking for one final payday before a decline that has been sudden and steep for a lot of similar players.
Many reports were that the Hollywood trade was agreed to in principle as early as January the prior year.You may be right. The problem is that the Cards hold little leverage here. Teams know that if the Cards stand pat, they will be at a 30M cap number and nearly 2/3rds of that in dead cap if traded.
So while a 2nd is good value for a player like D-Hop, they likely won't get it unless they wait until draft day and a team gets desperate. (like the Cards were last year with Hollywood)
