Trading Dalton Discussion

Recommended Posts

I could see a lot of teams being perfectly willing to give Dalton a chance to start... but a second rounder?  I'd need new pants if that happens.

Lap was guessing fourth round because of how crowded the FA pool is with good quarterbacks this year.

 

I agree with him. If we get anything north of round four, I’ll call that a Carson Palmer‘s ego-sized victory.

I'd happily take a 4th so anything better is gravy. A top 100 pick would let us add some depth to a group. A 2nd round pick would let us add a future starter.

How fantastic would that be given that Dalton was himself a second round pick? We get nine years with five playoff berths and the most TD passes in Bengals history... only to be [almost] fully reimbursed in the end.

Would they trade a second rounder

to replace Trubisky?

Arent they both the same?

Trubisky rook salary has two yrs left at 7 mil a year.

Taking on a contract fot Dalton ( 3yrs 54 mil ? " ) would be preventing them from signing their own good players..

I cant see their interest ..

Dalton is way better than trubisky - that’s why. On a team with a loaded defense, the attraction would be him pulling a Tannehill for Chicago like happened for the titans.

Dalton is only (only  HA) 17 mil next year and most of those FA quarterbacks are going to ask for a lot more. That has to be worth something IMHO.

As Brady's departure from Foxboro continues to look more probable, I think we can start to take the notion of New England Patriots starting quarterback Andy Dalton more seriously.

That is the perfect scenario. 

Used a 2nd round pick to draft him. Got 8 years of service out of him. Traded for a 2nd round pick. 

No way in hell am I trading him to the Patriots or any AFC team for that matter.

If there's a second round pick in it, I will trade him to absolutely anyone except Pittsburgh. In Cleveland or Baltimore he probably wouldn't start.

General manager Ryan Pace said Tuesday that the Bears remain committed to Mitchell Trubisky as their starting quarterback in 2020.

Pace acknowledged that Trubisky must play with more consistency but saw signs of improvement in the young quarterback and is confident that the second pick in the 2017 draft will keep growing.

"Mitch is our starter," Pace said during his end-of-season press conference. "We believe in Mitch and we believe in the progress that he's going to continue to make."

If we do trade him I hope it's to an AFC team and we play them in the playoffs.

 

As to the Pats. It looks like Rivers is headed to Indy. I can see them bringing Jacoby Brisett back or Derek Carr if Brady goes to LV;  if they want to trade for a QB. If they want to get a QB for free there's talk they like Tannehill; however, i could easily see Bridgewater there

Why not? He totally sucks and can't win a playoff game, which is why we're trading him in the first place, right?

I hope he goes to NE and wins the SB. I'd love to see the spin machine in motion on here.

I'd rather see us win the Superbowl, but that's just me.

And zero playoff wins and 1 playoff TD pass.  And memories of god-awful throws and idiotic fumbles.
