NFL FA/Trade Rumors Thread
Since we don't have one yet, I created this to keep track of what is going on. First one I came across is huge. Adam Schefter is reporting the Texans are trading DeAndre Hopkins to Arizona for David Johnson and a 2nd round pick

Whoa. Really? That seems like really dumb trade for the Texans. Why would you get rid of your franchise QBs number one weapon?

Holy Crap! That’s crazy. Not sure the logic behind that one.

It's worse:
quote:

Cardinals acquired WR DeAndre Hopkins and a fourth-round pick from the Texans in exchange for RB David Johnson and a second-round pick.

Staggering, stupefying. Bill O'Brien's foolish loss is the Cardinals' immense gain. Hopkins had a "down" 2019 as he caught "only" 104 balls for 1,165 yards and seven touchdowns, but there was quite literally zero evidence he had lost a step. The best body control receiver in the entire NFL still does not turn 28 until June. It's a grievous misstep for Houston and gift of a lifetime for Kyler Murray, who lacked consistent weapons as a rookie. As was the case with Hopkins and Deshaun Watson, he should work beautifully with Murray when the sophomore is outside the pocket. Murray also has the cannon necessary to find Hopkins down the sideline from the pocket. Even with the change of scenery, Hopkins remains a locked-in, top-three WR1. Bill O'Brien, call your attorney.

Hopkins and 4th for David Johnson and a 2nd.

Edit: I'm wrong. The Texans also get a 2021 4th round pick.

I may have been tempted to give up our first for Hopkins this year for Brees final run. Him and Thomas wound have been deadly. Esp if we coulda got a third back. Cards raped the Texans on this trade.

They could restructure and do what they need to do. Im not going to pretend to be a cap expert. Plenty of guy in here that are good at that.

All i know is Saints have always been aggressive if its a guy they really want. Hell, we tried to give Norman like 70 million with little cap space.


But really this comment was more along the lines of a joke. Anyone could have topped what just gave up.

Hayden Hurst and a 4th to Atlanta for ATLs 2nd and 5th

Solid add for them but feels like a lot to give up

The Saints should call them immediately if that happens. I would take Watson as the future QB over the uncertainty of Taysom Hill.
