None of the players with trade value are touchable, and the players we might want to flip aren't doing enough to make themselves flippable.
I could see us wanting to trade guys like Royster or Paul, but they haven't performed to a level where they have any real value. Maybe a conditional 7th or something like we got with Barnes, but nothing more.
But that's alright. We'll have a little bit of cap room next year, seeing as we're currently 6M under. Add to that the fact that I'm fairly certain we'll be cutting Brown to save some money, as well as re-doing Hall's and Moss' contracts, and we should be able to free up 12-16M for FAs, which should be enough to court some of the bigger names.
I don't think we have much trade value anywhere, not even with Rak to be honest. Its harsh because we have needs at d-line, LB, CB, Safety...we can definitely use more playmakers on offense at WR too.
Players for player trades are rare. I can't think of a recent one bigger than Portis and Champ in recent years.
Player for draft picks happen...but the draft is a toss up.
I prefer free agents than trading players.
Besides what besides a great/good player would the Redskins trade ? They have no leverage right now.
Thanks for the sig LCSF
No one. Given, the only players other teams might want are those on the first string - aka our starters. Is there any first string player that is worth the chance that we might pick up someone in a later round that might contribute? That's just dumb.
For example, examine one of our obvious needs - the OL. There is no one on the OL that another team would be interested in except Trent Williams. So, even if you could get a first round pick for him, what would you do if you got one? Draft another Left Tackle? One that hasn't proved himself in the NFL? Or let's say you actually found someone who wanted Tyler Polumbus, Chester or Montgomery or Lichtensteiger. And that theoretical drug-induced coma on the other team's part said they'd give us a third round pick for them. Who would you draft that could take their place? Allow me to point out that NONE of the so-called "quality depth on the OL" we picked up in the third round or later this year has seen the playing field even once. Next year's draft of any OL outside the second round is expected to produce the same results that this year's draft class did. Nada. Zip. Pas du tout. Nothing. Zero.
You trade players when you have excess talent at a position, not just because you may have found some depth that plays a decent game in place of the star. Or when the best player available taken in the draft makes the current player not just depth, but truly expendable. The Skins do not have that at any position.

Trivia: What team has drafted 9 Quarterbacks and given up draft picks for 3 more quarterbacks since the 2000 NFL draft?

I think it's a great hypothetical question. in no way am I proposing such an idea, but realistically it could be a consideration. IF someone was willing to give up say twice what we gave up and we felt like , say Cousins could do it........you could build quite a team. See d*ll*s and Herschel and Minnesota..

combed her joyous hair
'You are very ugly' said the mirror.
on her lips hung
a smile of dove-secret loveliness,
for only that morning had not
the blind boy said,
'You are beautiful'?
Player trades in the NFL are very rare unless there is some kind of contract dispute. I don't see anybody getting traded.
