The NFC West is full of drama, but should it get more dramatic with an Arizona Cardinals-Seattle Seahawks-New York Giants three-way trade?
With Russell Wilson‘s April 15th deadline for a massive contract extension almost over, there is a real possibility that the Seattle Seahawks could trade him out of the NFC West with the New York Giants being the likeliest option. If so, a league-altering blockbuster trade would happen, but should the Arizona Cardinals get involved?
That’s up to Steve Keim, Michael Bidwill, and Kliff Kingsbury, but that doesn’t mean we can’t speculate what a potential (albeit unlikely) trade would look like. Chat Sports’ commentator Mitchell Renz proposed what a blockbuster trade between the Cardinals, Seahawks, and Giants would look like. Below is his idea.
This trade is beneficial for all parties. Wilson gets to go to New York and break the bank with a massive contract to bring the Giants back to relevancy. The Seahawks, in turn, get the Cardinals top pick, which would then be used for Kyler Murray; a player in a very similar mold to Wilson. They also get future picks from the Giants.
For the Cardinals, this is trade projects as equal value for the No. 1 pick as Renz might’ve used the 2019 draft value chart to build it. In return for their top pick worth 3,000 points, they get pick No. 6 worth 1600, pick No. 17 worth 950 and pick No. 37 worth 530 points for a total of 3,080 points.
Remember, this trade is just a theory. Renz is not known to have sources within the NFL and built the deal himself for commentating purposes.
Personally, for the Cardinals, I would continue to have this trade be just a theory as sending Kyler Murray to the rival Seahawks could spell for the teams continued dominance out of the West. Although they get good value in return, helping a rival likely isn’t in the Cardinals’ plans.
Now, what are your thoughts? Leave a comment below or even another trade theory.
