Pats, B's, Sox
The 8th overall pick in exchange for Watson? The 4th or 5th best QB in the 2021 draft should fill the whole losing Watson created? I must be missing something here as 2 + 2 is not equally 4.
Maybe if you read what is said, you'd have less of an issue. No where in my post did I say that the offer was only the 8th overall pick for Watson. I said you were assuming they wouldn't be getting the 8th overall pick. Whenever I've heard that phrase, it usually means the pick is in ADDITION to what's been talked about. The deal that's been talked about (not necessarily the what the Panthers have offered) would send McCaffery, the 8th pick this year, and a 1st round in 2022 for Watson. So, it wouldn't JUST be the 4th or 5th best QB for Watson. Also, how can you typify it and say that the 8th overall would end up being the 4th or 5th best when you have no way of telling how they'll pan out at this point??
Also, it's a HUGE assumption on your part that Bridgewater was mentioned at all as part of Carolina's deal. Why would you think that Carolina would include him? Just because that's how it would work in Madden doesn't mean that's what works IRL. Houston could care less about Carolina's cap issues. And since they are dealing from a place of strength, they don't have to take another teams junk to get a deal done. If I'm Houston, there's no way I want Bridgewater included in the deal.
