5 NFL Training Camp Trades that Make Sense
While we are waiting to see if the world is going to have football, we here at AEE are going to proceed as if we are. With that being said let’s take a look at some 5 training camp trades that make sense for all involved.
5. Jamal Adams to Seattle
Jamal Adams has officially requested a trade from the New York Jets, in a move that was expected. We’ve heard there are a number of teams that could be vying for his services. The most logical spot, for me, is the Seahawks. They are already contenders in the NFC and Adams could be that missing piece in the secondary that would push Seattle back into Super Bowl contention.
4. Jarvis Landry to Green Bay
Aaron Rodgers isn’t getting any younger and he just saw his replacement get drafted. After failing to surround him with any talent on the outside through the draft, a training camp trade for Landry would immediately upgrade this receiving group to the best in the NFC North. Devante Adams and Jarvis Landry on the outside for Aaron Rodgers sounds scary to me.
3. Leonard Fournette to Tampa Bay
I talked about this last night on the Debord room. Fournette is not the type of guy you want in your locker room filled with young guys. Fournette needs to go somewhere where there is a coach that can deal with his diva-like personality. He has the skills and his playmaking ability fits the mold of what the Bucs are looking for. They are a team that expects to compete for a Super Bowl and Fournette could help them do that. Having a rotation with him, Jones, and Vaughn could wear down defenses all game long.
2. Jacoby Brissett to New England
I know I’m going to sound crazy, but I don’t put a move like this past the Patriots. We all know that Stidham is the guy going into the season but there is no guarantee that Brian Hoyer remains in place as the back-up. Brissett is a guy that understands the Patriots culture and could provide a very reliable security blanket if things don’t work out with Stidham.
1. Le’Veon Bell to Pittsburgh
Jamal Adams isn’t the only Jet I believe that will be moved. Head Coach Adam Gase never wanted Bell to begin with and we saw him have an off-year last year. Bell was on the trade block around the time of the deadline last season but a deal just never materialized. Of those teams in the mix, the Steelers were amongst them. I say they let bygones be bygones and make this deal happen as soon as possible. Bell knows the playbook and while James Conner is good, he is no Lev Bell.
