Baltimore trades TE Hayden Hurst to Atlanta

Recommended Posts

Good trade for both sides, Hurst has been crowded behind an All-Pro and probably the best blocking TE in the league. He’s actually very good.

 

and Eric Decosta putting in absolute work for the draft. Love it.

Hurst is good. You guys will see that now that he’s a starter.

Fair. I don't know about your third TE but I can't imagine flipping a top end tight cost controlled tight end for a second if you think he's a legit top ten talent.

LOL!  They could of had Deandre Hopkins for that lol.  

Given the timing on the announcement you just know EDC was pounding the table to get the trade finalized/called in ASAP before they had a chance to think about making that connection... Big Brain Bob tryin to ruin the trade curve for the whole damn rest of the league.

Hayden was the 3rd TE. Nick Boyle is our 2nd, and he's an elite blocker.

Hurst is underrated in here. There have been several studies of the Ravens offense and it is clear that Hurst gets great separation and if not for the chemistry between Lamar and Andrews/Lamars inability to find Hurst down the field, Hurst would have had a much bigger year than he had.

Ofc every WR/TE has plays where the QB doesn't see them open, but if Lamar had seen Hurst open just a couple of more times, Hurst would have had several plays like the one he had against the Bills.

lol Atlanta.  Still overvaluing the least important positions in football.

I'm okay with this, even with the knowledge that Hayden Hurst is a really good TE who is overshadowed by another really good TE.

I don't hate getting a Tight End. I hate that it's a 2nd round pick. That pick should have been a Safety or a Corner, not a Tight End. The Falcons had one of the worst defenses in the NFL last season (The 2nd half improvement was a fluke, as far as I'm concerned and that won't be replicated) - you badly needed to upgrade a lot of pieces on your defense.

Here's to the Falcons again having a bottom 5 defense in 2020.

I love the trade. Hurst is more dynamic than Hooper was, and the Falcons had to get creative to keep everything under the cap for this one. I think the trade essentially goes back to the Patriots situation. Sanu + a 5th for Hurst + a 4th is a smart trade every day.

Is the 2nd you’re giving up yours (47) or New England’s (55)?
