We have all got trade dreams. Seems like every year someone suggests a trade and says they might give a second round pick for Khalil Mack. They are total dreamers and not the illegal immigrant kind.
So trades that make sense for both teams is my topic. A trade must offer a player under contract for a value close to the player value.
This year, I would offer Wagner to Tampa Bay for Cameron Brate. They are close enough in salary and Brate fills a need at TE. Tampa gets a better tackle, we get a capable starting TE.
Same deal to San Franciscco for George Kittle. Little riskier but throwing the bones with someone else’s currency is fun.
Maybe Wagner to Baltimore for Michael Crabtree.
I think Crosby can fill in for Wagner. Otherwise we are painfully thin.
We could offer Ziggy and retain his rights but the tender is too high a price and I think nobody will pay it and separate from anywhere near our perceived threshhold of value.
We could offer draft picks to Arizona for Chandler Jones and or Patrick Peterson. They could be in a fire sale mode. They were reported to have soured on Hassan Reddick and the other LB’er, too.
So, if you think you have a trade that makes sense for both teams like Glover Quin to the Patriots for Julian Edelmann or Dante Fowler please post. I did not post that last proposal for real scrutiny but any one of the Wagner deals is acceptable. My only stipulation is the offer should be commensurate with perceived value, not Killebrew and Riddick to the Ramms for Gurley and Donald.
