This article is a - post McNab - follow up on my previous Redskins monster trade scenario article: http://bleacherreport.com/slideshows/368882-the-redskins-monster-trade-scenario-2010
I have written other article’s on this subject:
The McNab trade changed quite a few things for the Redskins and for the possible trade partners in this trade scenario.
The Redskins now have their franchise QB for the next couple of years - and they showed that Haynesworth is trade available even with the huge financial commitment they have with him.
Haynesworth is still the key to the succesfull unfolding of this monster draft scenario because he is an elite DT and holds huge value. However the package of Campbell and Haynesworth might have lost some trade value in relation to draft picks.
It looks like the Rams have their eyes set on Sam Bradford as their new franchise QB. In my mind that is putting too much pressure on a young QB who would be expected to produce too much too soon behind a mediocre O-line.
The Trade: The Rams 1st rd draft pick in 2010 for Jason Campbell + Albert Haynesworth + draft picks in 2011.
Jason Campbell has shown that he can produce in less than great conditions. He might not be the greatest vocal leader, but he gets the job done and will give the coaches time to rebuild the team, so at one point the team will be ready for a young franchise QB. No matter what QB the Rams would have behind center - they are not going to be playoff challengers for the next couple of years.
Albert Haynesworth ads star quality and lots of experience to a young talented defence.
With their no. 8 pick Oakland are stuck with draft options in relation to their needs that don't quite give them value for money. However they also have a talented team that might not need that much to be competitive.
The Raiders have wasted money on a useless QB and have a fragile backup.
The Trade: The Raiders no 8 pick for Jason Campbell + Albert Haynesworth + draft picks in 2011.
Enter Jason Campbell and Albert Haynesworth and the Raiders looks pretty good - and they still have picks to address the O-line.
Jason Campbell will be solid for the Raiders at QB and Haynesworth - on top of being a great player - will bring star quality to the team.
If you have the no. 1 pick do you trade it and are there any teams willing to sacrifice the picks needed ?
Previously i had Seattle trade with the Redskins for the no 1 pick with their pick at no 6 and 14 - from a standpoint of Pete Caroll really wanting Sam Bradford. Im not so sure anymore.
And with The Redskins now having the no 1 and no 4 pick and cash to spend I think they would have to invest - even if Bradford is not the man they want anymore.
At no 1 they pick: Russel Okung, LT.
If Shanahan really wants Okung he might have to get him here - because of the Lions interest. However with Haynesworth gone they have to consider Suh and McCoy.
At no 4 they pick: Eric Berry, S
Suh and McCoy are gone and Berry fills a big hole.
If any team was interested I think the Redskins should at least trade down from one of the two - allowing them to get a RT in the 1st rd + some extra picks.
With the Raiders trade the Redskins now hold the no. 4 and no. 8 pick
If Okung is there at no 4 the Redskins grab him without hesitation. However if the Lions beat them to him - then probably Suh or McCoy would be there or at least Berry. I think the trading down options should be explored, however Suh or McCoy could be too good to pass on.
At no 8 Trent Williams or Brian Bulaga should be there and offer great value for money.
The redskins could end up solving their O-line woes with Russel Okung and Trent Williams as solid starters and pro bowl material for the next 10 years.
Im not sure if the hole Albert Haynesworth leaves at DT needs to be addressed as the Redskins change to the 3-4 defense.
In my previous trade scenario I had Chris Cooley traded for a 2nd round pick to the Patriots - and if the Redskins could get a 2nd rd pick for Cooley I think they should jump at it.
Andre Carter is another player like Haynesworth who might not be a perfect fit for the 3-4 defense and who still holds some trade value 3-4 th rd draft pick ?
Especially if the Redskins for these two players could get:
In the Second round:
Roger Saffold, RT/G
Cam Thomas, NT or
Dexter McCluster, RB/WR/KR/PR
In the 4th rd:
Myron Rolle, S or
Alex Carrington, DE
Trade option 1 - The Rams:
This looks like the hardest trade scenario to come through. The Rams look like they really want Bradford, and the price of extra draft picks on top of Campbell and Haynesworth might be to expensive.
However if it were to go through the Redskins could end up with:
Okung, LT; Berry, S; Roger Saffold, RT/G, Alex Carrington, DE.
Trade option 2 - The Raiders:
This seems more likely and somehow I like it better for the Redskins. But will Al Davies give up the publicity of drafting at no. 8 ?
The Redskins could end up with:
Okung, LT; Williams, RT; Cam Thomas, NT; Myron Rolle, S
There are of course many options ... however I think the Redskins will have to have more picks than they do now - and if anything Shanahan and The Redskins organization has shown that everything is possible.
