    I would imagine Camís career is in Jeopardy at this point anyway. Cam is an elite talent but his elite arm strength has been zapped the last two seasons because of his shoulder injuries. Now his athleticism and speed have been hampered due to his foot injury. Take away Camís big arm and fast feet and what do you have left?

You're going to be hard pressed to get a first round pick and a starting caliber RB in exchange for a WR, no matter how good he is. Cleveland way overpaid for OBJ, I thought that at the time and I think the results speak for themselves.

    I'll reserve judgement until I see what they do with that 2nd rounder.
    I was being hyperbolic, but it is one of the worst. Cooper, OBJ, and Diggs all commanded 1st round picks, and Hopkins is better than all of them. David Johnson was a backup and a liability on Arizona's cap. Drake surpassed him and DJ was potentially going to get cut come training camp (and definitely would if it wasn't such a cap hit). A lot of teams would have required a pick to come along with him, per Barnwell, not dissimilar to what Houston had to pay to unload Osweiler a couple of years ago.

    The Barnwell article is telling. It's just a nonsensical trade on every level.

    Just to make it more stark, BoB has traded Clowney and Hopkins in the last 9 months and has zero first round picks in the next two drafts. That's astonishing.

    I know, right! But it's definitely like someone sucked all the air out of Boston...

    I did not expect that. He'd seem out of place in pretty much any non-Pats franchise but the Bucs?!? Yeesh.
