Stafford and 2 first round picks to the Texans for DeShaun Watson and a fourth round pick
While I feel it is a fair deal, I don't believe Watson would waive his no-trade to go to Detroit.
I could be wrong, (I have been once or twice) but I don't think that there will be the bidding war that we think there will be. Of those teams that desperately need a QB, most have a high draft pick and would rather run with one of the 4 QBs that are likely to be drafted in the top 15... especially since the cap is going down and the cap difference between a 1st round pick and Stafford probably equates to 75-100M over the 4-5 years.
I am unclear what teams you are thinking are going to pursue him. The team with the highest pick that is likely to pursue Stafford is Denver at 9. At that point, it is essentially take Trey Lance or Mac Jones or trade for Stafford. Fangio's job security would prefer Stafford.
I guess Arians found his new QB for when Brady retires
Rodgers isn’t going anywhere he just likes being dramatic...
Stafford will go to an average team and make them above-average...
Watson is the prize likely Tua and two FRP’s... Question is can they get #3 back...
Bears are there with a QB too. And lions won’t hesitate to trade stafford within division for greatest value if they won’t be competitive for a while.
Denver moved away from Elway and hired a new GM this year. This GM seems to care about building a team right instead of the QB bandaids that Denver has tried since Peyton left.
That GM also came from Minnesota where they thought it was worth it to pay Cousins 30+ mil to have stability at the QB position. Almost every organization in the NFL has a "win now" mindset because of the high expectations to be competitive and win. Look at AZ. Regardless of how we finished the year, the Cardinals have improved their record for the 2nd straight year and there are still fans clamoring for Keim, Vance and Kliff to be fired.
I'll make an signature wager if you want that Denver doesn't trade the #9 pick for Stafford. If they get picks back in return or trade less than a 2021 1st rounder I win. If they trade the #9 pick and/or more, I lose.
I still think Denver is very interested in Stafford, just not at the #9 price.
NFL rumors: Matthew Stafford trade interests 'a third of the league' (yahoo.com)
I will bet you that the compensation from whatever team trades for him is more than just a 1st round pick.
More? So if Denver only offers the #9 pick and that's it, I would win the bet? I just want to verify the terms...
Yes essentially you would win if any team trades for Stafford and the compensation is a 1st round pick or less.
I would win if any team acquires Stafford for a 1st round pick plus anything else (player, pick, whatever)
What if it is a pick + pick for Stafford + pick situation?
