Unfortunately there is only one Bill O brien 

Make a trade with Andrew Luck's wife to get his rights

Posted Images

I don't think we get anyone big at all. But if we did, DE would be my biggest want.

 

With Pittman coming back, and Johnson emerging (assuming he stays consistent), I'm pretty OK with WRs 1-4.

 

I just don't know abut Gallup. He's medium size and medium to OK fast. Great production last year though. I sure wouldn't complain. IMO, it would be un-Ballard like to grab him. 

 

I could see us picking up a RB if the right guy was available for a decent price.

I'd be fine with this. If the team can handle a possible distraction like Chad Kelly, they could handle Griffen assuming he's taking care of himself. My only issue with him is his age (32). Still seems to have some gas in the tank though. He's only on a one year deal, so not really sure what it buys Dallas.

I don't see it being a pick high enough to really impact a QB trade. I could see them however using him as a trade for a QB. A Griffen for Fitzmagic trade would help both, but not sure Miami values a one year DE right now. Maybe a team like LAC. Any team who's not in the playoff hunt really doesn't benefit.

I would like to trade away Jacoby for draft capital and use that pick and trade up in next year draft for a QB.  Rivers isn’t the franchise QB he is a stop gap for us.  We aren’t going far in the playoffs anyways not trying to be negative but we won’t.  I’m not saying tank the season but don’t waste our picks for anymore players.  I can see if we are 1-3 players away from a Super Bowl but unfortunately we are not there yet.

Thielen has helped Cousins produce a success rate of 66.7 on all red-zone targets, good for the best rate in the NFL, along with a total red-zone line of 15-of-21 for 134 yards and eight TD passes. 

 

I would make the trade if we get good value (1st or 2nd round pick), but many fans, especially those living in MN would not be pleased. He is a Minnesota native who grew up a Vikings fan and went undrafted. He is very popular in MN. He is also an excellent receiver who runs good routes and catches almost everything thrown in his direction. I think I would prefer keeping him.

 

I am willing to trade everyone with 4 or more years experience except Danielle Hunter, Kendricks, Dalvin Cook, Harrison Smith and Thielen.

Ha... We actually do have his rights at the moment. If he were to unretire he'd still be a Colt. 

 

I'd be happy to pick up a defensive end.

If not for the Bengals owner being a hard ball, I'd go after Carlos Dunlap for a 4th or 5th round pick.

 

I would talk to the Panthers about Curtis Samuel, and the Eagles about Zach Ertz. They will definitely add value to our offense as the year goes on, IMO.

I doubt they do it with Turay coming back. Ballard usually stands pat at the trade deadline. The Mike Evans thing is interesting though.

Who is Ertz going to replace now that Burton is starting to produce? Get rid of Doyle maybe? Ertz, Cox, and Burton would be nice.

Doyle can still remain in line TE and Ertz and Burton rotate at pass catching TE. Burton is not an every down/high downs player like Ertz can be, IMO, given his history.

So what happens with Cox who is better than just about all of them except Ertz.

I kinda doubt we do anything at all. And not sure Turay is ready. The pick up of Carter to the 53 I though signaled they might not be confident in the timing of Turay's return. And I'm sure once he does return, it will take a while for him to get back to game form.

 

Any pick up though, would have to be a good $, skill, timing, and needs fit. With Pittman coming back soon, not sure WR in the conversation either. Whatever happens, I'm not opposed at all to a quality add.

Burton to me is more slot and HB, than TE. While I agree Doyle is less dynamic a pass catcher than some, he's always been highly effective catching the ball. He runs great routes and moves the chains. Mo IMO is undervalued here, and needs more of the detached snaps. Hoping his snap counts go back up.

    • Sorry,  long response.   Much to respond to.   To the Wilson ranking....   sorry, no.    That's NOT the way it works.    Wison may be tied in grade with over 30-something other players,  but at some point,  you have to rank them in order of preference   And Zierlein ranks has him at 64.  He could've been ranked at any of the other spots.   But he wasn't.   He was slotted at 64.   That's how this works.      And while you  can call it "all over the map"  a number of good evaluators have him with a first round grade.   The worst was Kiper with a mid-3rd round grade.   We took Wilson right in the middle of the range of rankings.   Mid-40's.    There isn't an issue with where we took him.   Tabor may have been CB1 for Florida,  but he was not a better NFL prospect.   He tested badly and slipped.   Wilson was the youngest player in the draft.   The size of a safety.   He had better upside and long range potential.  Unfortunately,   he wasn't mature enough and it hasn't worked out for him at any stop.   But he was drafted roughly where he should have been.      Carrie may or may not have been a good solid back-up,  but he was a BIG disappointment in Cleveland.   He was signed to a big deal.   $8 mill per.    That's starter money, not back-up.   Cut after two years.    And no one was interested until late in the process.   Ballard found value in the discount isle.   The gamble regarding Rhodes was this....    what if he didn't work out?    We signed him to be no less than CB2, and CB1 if things went well.    The $$ cost may not have been much.   But now imagine how this forum would look at Ballard if Rhodes was a bust and his play cost us a playoff spot?   The gamble was signing someone on a cheap deal.   People would be screaming that Ballard got what he paid for and why didn't he sign someone better to a bigger deal?   It would've been a lost opportunity to do better.   Again....  I'm not clearing Ballard of blame.   But no one bats 1,000 in this business.   A first rounder is considered by some to be a 50-50 proposition.   On balance, I think Ballard has done well.   Hope you'll note my post from the other day where I disagreed with Greg Rosenthal calling Ballard the best GM when it comes to the draft.   I think that's wrong and I explained why.   We will have a better idea by the end of this season.  Guys like Turay and Lewis from the 18 class,  plus the first four from the 19 class...   RYS, BB,  Parris and Oke.   If those guys come through,  Ballard's drafting will look even better.    And if not, we will see when the winter of 22 comes around.
