Green, Higgins, Boyd - Ross doesn't even see playing time, so apparently he wants a trade from the Bengals.

Please, say no to the Chiefs!!! But given the team make up, more speed is just what the Chiefs need. :(

 

The Patriots may be interested too - https://www.radio.com/weei/sports/patriots/nfl-rumors-patriots-target-wr-john-ross-wants-trade

 

As the Colts, I would definitely trade for Carlos Dunlap though. :) 

 

Thoughts???

I mean...I would take him for free...and see what he could for a game. It's not like the Colts couldn't use WR depth. But it seems like Marcus Johnson is occupying that deep threat right now...so not sure how Ross would get on the field...except maybe in the Campbell gadget role until he comes back.

He has done nothing since he got into the league. The Bengals have a new QB and could use all the WR help they can get. He got on the field for 1 play last week. Trade? No, he's basically asking to be cut. The Raiders like speed, even if they can't catch a cold..

He had a good start to the season last year. Back to back 100 yard games iirc. He’s also had some injuries here and there. He was just drafted by the wrong team. The Bengals have a long history of drafting highly rated players in the early rounds that never amount to anything.

This is a guy I’d be okay with trading a mid round pick for, if he agrees to a two year deal with heavy incentives. I’m thinking a 5th could get it


Oh my..:

 

1) Ross will not command anywhere close to 5th in a trade. 
 

2) There will be no new contract for him. If you trade for him you do it with the contract he current my has. Why would they give him additional years / money until they see for themselves if can actually play?

    • Prediction.  This trade will be in place by the Friday before the SB.   So did I.
    • It is but we really don't know where we will drafting after the trade.   Just because we draft one doesn't mean he will be good enough to start.  Look at Clark.  I think he was a 3rd rounder.  Protecting Stafford's blind side is going to be really important.  
    • I have the Colts being active and making bigger moves than normal this offseason. We haven't really had a quiet offseason in around a decade so that trend is gonna continue here.      Colts needs: QB, LT, DE, WR, CB, LB, DT   In-house: $68.6 million Restructure Ryan Kelly $6.75m in savings   Colts Free Agents: $75.3 million   Re-Sign: TY Hilton $8 million/1 year Hilton has expressed a desire to stay and based off of Irsay's tweets I think he's coming back. A one to two year deal around $8m makes sense to me, as Pittman is emerging and I have them selecting a WR in Round 1   Xavier Rhodes $16 million/2 years Rhodes played like a top CB for us during his prove it deal and bringing him back would bolster a weak CB group. His market is hard to gauge but something around 8-10m seems likely.   Depth Signings:  Al-Quadin Muhammad $1.5 million/1 year TJ Carrie $1 million/1 year     RFAs: $56.3 million Zach Pascal $2.2m Ashton Dulin $850k George Odum $2.2m Mo Alie-Cox $2.2m     Trades: $49.4 million QB Matthew Stafford $43m/2 years In all likelihood Detroit gets a first rounder in return here but I have the Colts sending their '21 and '22 second rounders in return for him. He's still a elite talent and trading for him opens up the playbook anymore and can have us as serious contenders for the Super Bowl in years to come.     Let Walk:  Jacoby Brissett - No point in him returning as Eason takes the backup job. Justin Houston - He was better in 2020 than most people think, but I have us going a different direction at DE when Free Agency opens. Denico Autry - I also have us going a different direction here in Free Agency, he's been great but I think we can get better value. Malik Hooker - He doesn't fit the scheme, doesn't want to be here, and deserves a team that shows off his abilities. Tavon Wilson - We can find better depth at S. Trey Burton - His replacement comes in FA. Marlon Mack - CB made it pretty clear that we wouldn't be paying him this offseason. Anthony Walker - He's expressed a desire to start and Ballard acknowledged that he'd be gone.     NFL Free Agency: $29.4 million DE JJ Watt $24 million/2 years, $11m in 2021, $13m in 2022 This all depends on if Houston cuts him. We have a need at DE and Watt still plays at an elite level. Pairing him with Buckner on one side would be a fantastic 1-2 combo.   DE/DT Solomon Thomas $6 million/1 year He tore his ACL and missed the entire season on top of being a disappointing 3rd overall pick. I think he still has a lot of talent and could benefit by taking a prove it deal in Indianapolis. Watt/Buckner/Stewart/Thomas sounds incredible to me.    TE Zach Ertz $7.5 million/1 year  It sounds like Ertz is on the way out and if he gets cut, Indianapolis makes a lot of sense. With Burton on the way out, Ertz gets to reunite with Frank Reich and join a very talented TE group.     NFL Draft: Trade 21 to New Orleans for 28 and 60 Trade 60 and 148 to Washington for 51   R1P28 - Rashod Bateman WR Minnesota I'm not sure if Bateman falls here but he has All-Pro potential. He can play both the outside and in the slot at an effective level, is a great route runner, and is strong at the point of the catch. Bateman joining an offense with Hilton, Pittman, Campbell, JT, Hines, Ertz, MAC, and Doyle would certainly give us an explosive boost.   R2P51 - Liam Eichenberg OT Notre Dame Eichenberg could very well go in the first round but with the amount of picks in the first round that will be WR/OT, I can see him falling down into the second. Notre Dame's track record of elite OL talent continues every year, and he's an instant plug at LT. Liam's a better at run blocker than pass blocker, and it's an area he'll have to improve in.   R3P84 - Paulson Adebo CB Stanford Adebo burnt his draft stock by returning to Stanford and sitting out of the season. He was a projected late first rounder last year, and could go anywhere from the 2nd to the 4th. He's an outside corner and he's much better than Rock Ya-Sin. He's a physical guy and he's got great ball skills and can play both man/zone. He needs to improve as a run defender and can have trouble with the quicker WRs in the NFL.   R4P117 - Pete Werner LB Ohio State Werner fits in our 4-3 and would take over Walker's role. He's a big hitter and an above average run defender. He can play zone at a comfortable level but gets stiff if he ever gets called to play man. It'd give us a great LB room, and make sure Okereke knows he's got competition for his job.   R6P180 - Shaka Toney DE Penn State Toney is a pass rush designate, with a lean frame and a quick step. He's not ever gonna be a starter but can provide speed off the edge in a limited role.   R7P211 - Ryan Van Demark OT Connecticut I'm not going to act like I know much about the late round offensive lineman, but I can't see Ballard taking a depth guy in the later rounds.
    • Has to be done by March 22nd or Detroit owes Stafford $10m more dollars. Cant officially happen until March 17th.   Can be agreed on unofficially at anytime prior though.
