    As the title suggests would you entertain the idea?

    No, many other more important needs.

    What if they received a third back?

    Too much to give up between the draft capital and the money. Good player, but as we've seen good players don't always jive with Brady and this offense, so it's a high price for a non-guaranteed thing. And all his speed in the world won't matter if we don't have enough resources to improve/maintain the OL and TE situations.

    Only if we managed to fill a lot of other needs first and by some miracle still had the cap space.

    Just no way to fit his cap number, and if he didn’t work out this team could not survive another wasted 1st/2nd round pick

    I’d much prefer we draft a good WR in round 1, but I’m not very optimistic about our ability to do that either. This team struggles greatly to find good WR talent that can also grasp the offense

    No, we already have superstar NKeal Harry as the #1 receiver...

    With the circumstances of this offseason, there are maybe 10 guys I’d trade a first round pick for and then pay big money to. Diggs is nowhere near that list.

    Should've drafted him in 2015.

    But it was only fantasy
    The wall was too high
    As you can see
    No matter how he tried
    He could not break free
    And the worms ate into his brain

    And 9 of those 10 guys probably would never be traded until they weren't "that guy" anymore.

    LOL, draft capital. As if they would actually get anything with that!

    I kid, I kid.



    Too soon?

    I'd just like to see them use that No. 1 pick, I'm tired of WR roulette. But you never know what BB has in mind.

    I’d do it if the cap hit is manageable. If Tom is back, need to win now.

    putting the cap implications to one side, why not just sign a free agent wide receiver or TE and keep the 1st round pick.

    Which would you prefer e.g. Cooper/Green/Sanders/Henry (whoever) and a 1st or Diggs.

    True. Personally I cannot wrap my mind around any trades or free agents until I know if Tom is coming or going.
