If you have Chase Young sitting there with our top 3 pick do you take him or move down? Thats tough. I know the logical thing to do is trade down for a good deal but man that guy is insane. I'm sick of no pass rush.

The only reason you wouldn't pick Chase Young up is that you're drafting a Franchise QB.

It’s a very good trade for both teams.  Go get a ring, Sanu

Go get that Ring, Mo. Happy for him.   (better value than expected, but he will be missed. Massively. On and off the field.)

It may be a golden ticket to solve this salary cap dilemma. If the falcons end up with 6 draft picks in the top 3 rounds, and hit on 4 of them, this team suddenly has life with rookie contracts on 4 starters 

As much as I love Ryan, sometimes you have to strike when the opportunity presents itself.  If we end up top 3, we may draft a QB unless someone offers us a treasure trove to move off our top 3 spot

Yep. This is all about Hooper moving forward. Make it worth it Austin!

We are basically at that point of shifting more resources to the defense and becoming an offense more like the Saints.

More trades to come or guys gonna be cut, or both. 

Yeah there have to be some serious decisions made with certain players being cut.  I just hope that DQ and this staff are gone as well!  It’s truly time for a fresh start.  Can’t continue to waste guys like Matt and Julio without winning a championship!!

It’s not a terrible idea.  Is it a need?  Not yet.  But the opportunity to be in the top 3 without wasting multiple drafts to move up is rare.  Ryan would still get a 1st & 2nd in return 

For Christ sake. We cannot cut or trade Matt Ryan due to the amount of dead money such a move would create for us. Let go of this pipe dream this isn’t madden

If you can build around Brees late 30s and Brady age 40, there is no reason the Falcons can’t do the same.

 The Falcons will likely do what they did this year with Ryan and Matthews:

restructure to convert money and free up cap space. It will hurt the future years but 2020 is the really bad year we have to get past. 

There is lot of dead weight I would get rid off before coming to Jake Mathews. It will depend on who they hire as HC, an offensive minded or defensive minded guy.

There’s lots of enticing opportunities there...Young would instantly make this defense better. Actually drafting Tua or Herbert is also a possibility. Although I’d be pretty shocked. Not mad, but shocked. Ryan is under contract for 4 more seasons after this year.  And the treasure trove you speak of is a real possibility. If someone is willing to cough up a Kings ransom for one of those QB’s....you have to consider it

Can Falcons trade Jake "Who needs to work at State Farm" Matthews and not take a cap hit? If so get him out he blows.

It would cost 3 million to cut him next year.  It’s the dead money that stings, but with a CAP rising annually, teams are caring less and less about dead money.  If you decide to move off him, I’d trade him....he will get a 2nd in return.

Some fans might get pizzed if we start the dumpster fire sell, but I see it as management cares about the fans. They know we're going no where and by get a multitude of picks we can set up an Oakland/Gruden situation.

To me, I'd listen to all offers, including Julio.

Depends on how far we move down. Dropping 1 or 2 spots could give us the extra picks without losing out on Young. Depends on the needs of the other teams

You also have to look at what the situation is for teams in front of us. Who's drafting a QB? Miami has more ammo. Maybe Cincinnati? Chase Young could be priority for those guys as well.
