It could as well mean exactly what it says. If the QB they feel has IT and they fall to them, they’ll take him.
Let them sit for a year or two and he works out, then trade Goff.
Say the Lions have Fields rated as 1a barely behind Lawrence. He would have been the QB they targeted had they not acquired Goff. Think if he falls to 7 the Lions won’t at least consider taking him?
Probable, nope. Could it happen, of course.
Same thing I’m sure Carolina is thinking. If they guy they would have wanted just happens to fall to them, they’ll take him.
