Thread: Dangle Pouncey as trade bait

    Dangle Pouncey as trade bait

    There is a lot of talk out there about the Steelers letting Ziggy Hood walk. I hope we keep him and lose Pouncey.
    I'd be dancing in the street if we traded Pouncey to move up, and I think the Rams, with the #2 overall, would bite.

    If we gave the Rams Pouncey and our #15 overall, we could get the #2 overall. Pouncey was a #1 and our #15th overall is a #1. I'd even throw in Woodley.
    That opens up possibilities like Manziel, Bridgewater, Clowney, and so on. If we got Bridgewater or Manziel, and let them sit behind Ben for 2 or 3 years, we would have our next franchise QB. Ben gets hurt, plug em in and see what they can do. Ben is in his 30's now, so its time to start looking for an opportunity to find his successor.

    I would be open to trading Pouncey, but I'm not sure I would burn that pick on a QB. I think we are a year or two away from drafting Ben's successor, and that is assuming Landry Jones doesn't pan out.

    You want to pay the $100m salary of Ben and the signing bonus money for a QB picked #2 overall (and have that guy sit for two years)? Do I have that right?

    Implausible. First of all, Rams wouldn't give us the #2 over all for our 15 and Pouncey. No way. Secondly, there is no way we select a QB and still plan on keeping Ben for even 1 more year. We are clearly in the mode of trying to build around Ben and make another run with him. He probably has 5 more years in him, especially if he limits the hits he takes.
