That he finally did one part of his job right instead of acting like an uniformed jackass.  It's what he does with those picks in the draft that matters.  Hopefully, he will be gone and we will have an actual GM that knows what they are doing making the picks.  But that won't happen :(

Just as a reminder from the previous Trent to the Browns chatter.

This reeks of a PR stunt.  They know they're about to get crucified for not listening to any offers, so they're putting it out there that they're willing to make a deal.  Expect to hear this after the deadline:

 

Bruce: "As was reported, we tried to move Trent, but no one met our asking price.  We'll see what happens this off-season."

That Bruce is still a blithering idiot, and a snake in the grass.  But thankful he at least got something out of the deal like any monkey with a cymbal could have done.

What I don't get about that, Njoku was on IR at the time of that.  You can't trade players who are injured right?

Njoku would be a nice addition at TE.  His injury that put him on IR was a broken wrist, pretty sure he can bounce back from that easily.   Don't know much about Wiggins, other than it appears he ticked off the coaches (from an article I read).  Given our current situation and Reeds future in question, I think that's a decent trade for a player that has stated he will never play here again.

 

Use both first round picks on a LT and a guard and build the line back up.

Apparently they changed this rule recently, last year maybe.

Rule changed last season, you can now trade players on IR.

Yeh I don't know what the rule is there, but do recall that being pointed out at the time.

 

I like the idea of Denzel Ward and or Higgins from the Browns.

 

My fear is Bruce wants a high pick to then make a stupid follow up trade for a player.

 

edit....just read above posts on that rule thanks.

browns for their first and Denzel Ward or Njoku/Higgins

 

Vikings for their second and Stefon Diggs

I don't think any of those is realistic. Browns #1 is a potential top 10 pick. Would be an amazing return though.

Kind of odd to decide they are willing to trade him with only 24hrs left until trade deadline.  HTTRDynasty may be onto something with the PR stunt theory.  But maybe it'll increase the offers due to teams trying to get him before time runs out.  Hoping to get some decent return for a great player who is unwilling to play here again but also tempering my expectations.

I don’t think many will be impressed that he’s months behind 97% of ESers.

I think I will be a little relieved that we got something (unlike in the Cousins' debacle), a little sad to see a long time 'skin go on such bad terms, and a little hopeful that the next GM or even the current draft group (which has done pretty well) can do something.

 

I doubt I would be doubtful that it took so long as I don't think any pick or player could have salvaged THIS year. I would openly question if we could have got a bigger haul especially given the light of the bounty a substantially worse LT got before the season started.

Personally, I agree with everyone who thinks this is a PR stunt.  When we get nothing and TW shows up to get his year accrued, Allen (The Devil) can claim that he tried to trade TW, but he got no good offers.

If it's a player they want badly, it would fit the win now motif .  Standig referred to them liking to get a player in the mix of a deal, too.  Wondering about Howard?  There was a mention weeks back the Redskins were poking around on him.  And he's Alabama.  And Jay revealed in an interview years back that they had him rated highly.

 

 

 

Another F.O. nearly as bad as ours. They use a top 20 pick on an elite In line+Move TE, then hire a coach who has never used TE's, proceed to not use said TE, then want anything and everything for him. Funny. 

 

FTR, I would trade Silverback for Howard and a 2nd. Doubt they would.

This is similar to how Bruce handled Keenan McCardell. He waited until the trade deadline to move him. I do still think it's 50/50. He may be a believer in the "deadline spurring action".
