Arizona Cardinals: 4 potential trade offers for the first overall pick
Is this a bad trade on the part of the Bengals? Maybe, but when you consider that the Bengals owner is Mike Brown, a man who hungry to pique interest in his team and increase revenue, anything is possible — including hiring a 35-year-old quarterbacks coach to be the head coach.
While the Andy Dalton era has led to some regular season success for the Bengals, the team have failed to win a playoff game under him. Factoring in that the 31-year-old Dalton is under contract for just two years at $16M a year without guarantees, per Over The Cap, moving on from his contract should be pretty easy. While his replacement in this scenario is Kyler Murray, who has his fair share of skeptics, he’s the type of player that can excite a fanbase that has lacked a reason to be excited in recent years.
Like previous trades, the Cardinals end up with an extra first-round pick. Adding a second-round pick this year and 2020 is also a nice haul that should translate to some impact players. While the fall to the 11th pick is a big gap like in the Dolphins trade, the depth in the 2019 class is nice enough for the team to add a star talent in the middle of the first.
Other teams that could trade up include New York Giants, Jacksonville Jaguars, Washington Redskins, Denver Broncos
