5 trades that would shake up 2020 NFL Draft

  5 trades that would shake up 2020 NFL Draft The Chargers need a franchise quarterback, but are they willing to take a chance to trade up to grab one? Everyone’s focus for potential trades is on teams eyeing a move for a quarterback. The Detroit Lions and New York Giants are rightfully hoping a general manager calls up with an offer they can’t refuse.

The Dolphins have called the Bengals on multiple occasions to inquire on the No. 1 overall pick in the draft, Adam Schefter of ESPN.com tweets. The Bengals told the Dolphins “in no uncertain terms” that they would not give up the top choice.

No surprises on either end here. The Bengals have been laser-focused on tapping Joe Burrow as their quarterback of the future and the Dolphins probably see him as the best passer in this year’s class as well. The Dolphins’ love affair with the LSU star has been a poorly-kept secret throughout the year and they’ve been pondering a move up to No. 1 since January.

5 blockbuster NFL trades that could still happen

  5 blockbuster NFL trades that could still happen From an All-Pro player in New Jersey to a former franchise quarterback out West, here’s a look at five NFL players who could still be traded with a specific look at where they might end up. Jamal Adams to the Dallas CowboysThe rumors seem to be at least credible at this point. Just recently, Cowboys vice president Stephen Jones would not shoot down the idea that his team could make a renewed effort to acquire Jamal Adams. Meanwhile, the New York Jets reportedly have no plans to extend the All-Pro safety.Could this lead to a blockbuster trade during next week’s draft? Stranger things have happened.

The Bengals, meanwhile, have been hitting the b-button on teams asking about the pick. Unless they’re playing really, really, really hard to get, Burrow to the Bengals is a done deal.

Unable to climb to No. 1, the Dolphins may move up to No. 3 via trade with the Lions. Initially, they tried to make the move without sacrificing their No. 5 pick, but that doesn’t seem to be on the table.

After a strong 2018 season, Burrow shattered all expectations with a 76.3% completion rate, 5,671 passing yards, and 60 (!) touchdowns through the air. He also added another five rushing TDs for good measure.

Laremy Tunsil becomes the league's highest-paid offensive lineman .
Laremy Tunsil landed himself a market-setting contract, and he did it without the help of an agent.During the press call Tunsil revealed that he first started talking with the Texans back in February, and that he was insistent on signing a shorter-term deal so he could re-enter free agency again when he was still young. Tunsil is locked up through the 2023 season now, and he’ll still only be 29 when he hits free agency in the spring of 2024. This could become a growing trend in the league, and Tunsil said he spoke with Seahawks linebacker Bobby Wagner, who also negotiated his own contract, during the process.
