This would be the dumbest thing a new GM could possibly do and lead to him promptly getting fired.

I wish we could fast forward in time past the draft just to not have to see 5 of these ridiculous posts every day.

Jacksonville already picks at #1, #29, #34, #66, and #93 in the first three rounds plus #104 and #113 in the fourth round this year. If they like Lawrence, they have legitimately zero incentive to dea

Why would the Jags do that? 

Hes mobile and walks on water. Hes immune to sacks

My Madden Trade, and I can honestly see it happening. Small chance I know, but if I was GM this is the direction I would probably go. 37 year old MR, and a recently oft injured JJ, it's probably time to move on. 

New Falcon's GM Rick Smith, hires EB, and then promptly shocks the world by pulling off the Falcon's second "Michael Vick" trade. 

RS has looked over the Falcon's roster and determined that it makes more sense to burn it down, and rebuild. He jettison's MR & JJ, adding a 2 late 1sts this year, and a 2nd rounder next year.  

In order to get Lawrence, he sends the Jaguars the #4 pick, & the 2 late firsts. 

Jags = 3,000

Falcons #4 = 1,800

2 late 1sts = 1,200 +

Future will look bright, because Falcons take the cap hits in 2021, and they don't have to give up future draft capital to get TL. Guys like TL don't come along every year. Go get him TD...I mean RS! 

 

 

So we are going to start TL and let him get killed behind this OL also he can think about retiring in 4-5 years?

It would probably take:

2021 1st, 2nd, 3rd 

2022 1st, 2nd, 3rd

2023 1st, 2nd, 3rd

To get the Jags interested. Lawrence is as close to perfect for a QB prospect as you will get. Jags are not passing that up unless it's for something insane.

 

that about sums it up, and if the falcons did that i'd throw my tv through the front window.

And I'm reasonably sure they want Lawrence. Their new HC and GM would be slobbering all  over themselves to have Trevor to begin their regime.

Yes the availability to get Lawrence is what makes them the most desired GM/HC landing spot at the moment. That's long term job security right there.

Bingo.

In all honesty, this is a suicide mission to trade up.  There is no way to do it without crippling your franchise for years.  TL would **** near have to score 30 points himself and make ten tackles a game for several years.

Yeah....no need to trade up.

While getting the qb of the future is tempting....it is not needed.

Ryan needs to play better at times and not miss some of the plays that he has missed but overall he does not need to be replaced.... especially with a rookie.

I would much much rather see us bluff and get some poor schmuck of a gm to give up the farm for a qb.

Don’t we; like, have to get under the 2021 salary cap as well? :shrug:

I don’t see increasing the cap charge of Ryan by $3.5M as helping get under.

We have to get our top Top 51 contracts under the cap by March when the new league year begins. Or whenever the official offseason date hits; even if they were to move it due to Covid.

It’s more financially feasible to restructure Matt and kick the can another year than increase his cap charge and move him; making it harder to comply with cap rules to start next league year; in less than 3 months from now.

Julio isn’t necessarily as off limits but trading him before June increases his cap charge for 2021 by $200K.

Here's a list of QBs taken number 1 overall in the 2000s:

Vick, Carr, Palmer, Eli Manning, J Russell, Stafford, Bradford, Newton, Luck, Winston, Goff, [Mayfield, Murray, Burrow].

Only one to win a Super Bowl was Eli, and he was a thoroughly mediocre QB who had a couple of good postseason runs.

 

Leaving out the 3 who got drafted last 3 years, leaves 11

4 of them you wouldn't want- J Russell, Bradford, Goff, Winston.

5 got beat up so bad their careers were cut short- Vick, Carr, Palmer, Newton, Luck

Stafford has never won a postseason game.

Teams made some serious trades to get some of these players. If you have the number one pick, yeah, go for it. Trading up to get  THE QB hasn't worked out in the 2000's

And don’t forget the Bears trading up to get Trubisky at #2 and passing on Mahomes. Yep, the higher they are drafted the better they are/purple

It's as likely to happen as this nugget, which I hate as well,though I assume the thought is he could get the most out of Justin Fields

Former Ohio State coach Urban Meyer could make his return to the sidelines, but this time at the next level.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, at least two NFL teams are interested in interviewing Urban Meyer including the Detroit Lions and Jacksonville Jaguars, however, the Atlanta Falcons are now in the mix though it hasn’t been confirmed.

Schefter also reported that Meyer did not dismiss the idea of taking his talents to the next level. Additional sources added that Meyer is expected to make up his mind within a week or two and take interviews from there.
