This made me throw up a little. I hate the idea of paying a WR as much money as Beckham is going to demand. We did it with Calvin, who wasn't nearly the diva and it cost us Suh IMO. With it also costing us two players that I like (Tate and Zettel) it opens another hole on the roster and we lose our 1st round pick that could be used to fill that hole. 

IMO bad trade for the short term and the long term.

I would get down with this if I was playing Madden. 

I do like the players you selected in the draft in all seriousness though.

Suh cost us Suh we offered him almost the same money as the Dolphins. I believe it was like 17 million a year or something vs the 19 annual average he signed with the Dolphins.

I can understand still not waiting to pay OBJ and can respect that I guess. I think he's really talented and prolly the 3rd best WR in the game and idk, I just think he's really good.

C'mon man why does it gotta be Madden, there have been a TON of trades this offseason... An the team I'm trading with just moved on from their best defensive player. ( Though that move did free up money for the Giants to resign Beckham. ) I mean I get it's fake, but really? that fake fake to think OBJ can't be traded?

With Suh's Calvin's and Stafford's contracts we constantly had to restructure everyone contract. That restructuring made it impossible to franchise tag Suh before he hit free agency.

Give your credit it’s an outside the box trade idea...

Obj wants to be the highest paid player regardless of position Per reports...

I’d rather keep our guys and build up, don’t mind the Pryor and branch signing tho.

There best Defensive player????? Noob....and he doesn't fit the transition to 3-4 which they are making. They are going to keep OBJ LMAO

There's a lot about this that I'm not fond of.

OBJ: He's a great player but comes with a lot of negatives. 1) Diva attitude 2) Big money contract 3) Doesn't actually address problems in W/L column in 2017-2018. Our receiving corp was not our issue. Running the ball - whether it was on offense or stopping it on defense, clearly was. Unless OBJ morphs into Aaron Donald or Todd Gurley, this doesn't really help that much

Cost of the trade: We are giving up a 1st round pick in an era where the contracts are manageable plus losing a mid-round pick next year, one of our best players (Tate) and opening up another need (Zettel) while losing a productive player.

FA: Likely done before Pryor was signed but he's off the market now. We just signed Luke Wilson and now you have Celek coming in plus Roberts and Valles. This is before drafting a TE with our 2nd round pick. I get it that Wilson and Celek are stopgaps but it seems like a heavy investment. Branch at the minimum is a good signing but seems unlikely.

Draft: Outside of Hurst, it could be worse.

Overall, this falls vastly outside of what I think the Lions are expected to do as an organization. While watching Stafford throw it up to OBJ would be fun to see, everything else that comes with it is not worth it at all.

Dang, Joe Berger retired. I thought there was a good chance he'd play here since his wife wants to move back to the area.

This is pretty whacked. It’s like getting carried away at a game of wack a mole. 🤠

But, I really like aspects of it. The free agent signings are good but if Celek is signed I would find the second round pick on Hurst to be a luxury. It’s a luxury I understand if you’re modelling after a particular Patriots team. 

The draft is good.

I like OBJ but the cost is steep.

It’s  a really good effort.

If you want to get Crazy, offer Cleveland our 20th, Ameer Abdullah & Tate for there 1st 2 picks in the 2nd round (#33 & #35 ) & their 3rd. Cleveland will probably get their QB & RB with pick 1 & 4, now they will need to fill the void of losing Thomas to retirement. Tate will be the prize, giving there QB a top notch target. Freeing up the 2 salaries, gives us more cap space to work with after the Draft. Usually some top rated talent gets released after the draft.
