Would you trade a 1 for Zeke?

Recommended Posts

I wouldn’t..but it seems things are getting pretty toxic between Zeke and Jerry in Dallas just curious if you’d be willing to trade a 1 for him and then give him a contract extension

Yes. He’s one of the best 10 players in football and complete. The Bills could use a star skill player. He’d fill that role.

Hell naw! Shady would be worth a #1 if he ran behind the Dallas o-line

Sometimes the talent isn’t worth the trouble or the cap space. If he were an adult, then probably at the right price. But he seems to struggle with adulthood.

Yep.  100 percent agree you make this move.

 

The guy is a monster and we'd get his 3 prime seasons then cut him loose....that's how I'd structure the deal.  

 

The Cowboys have a Dak problem not Zeke.  That's why they have this issue.  Allen isnt due for money for 3 more seasons.   The clock has run out on Dak.  

 

Our timeline and window is now.

These are both true...that's why pro football is so ***** hard to figure out and I am glad I am not a GM.

I don't think many teams would give up a one for Zeke, and I don't think he'd be valued as highly by another team considering Dallas' offense revolves entirely around him. On just about any other team, he's going to be featured in the offense but not as heavily as he is in Dallas. So with that type of situation, I don't think any team would give him a monster deal knowing that he wouldn't have to take as much pressure off their QB as he does with Dak. 

 

That said, I'm sure Beane and his team would discuss it if it got out there that he was on the trade market, but ultimately I think they'd pass because Zeke is, for lack of a better term, kind of an a-hole with an ego problem who likely wouldn't fit in well with the whole process here.

I don't know what people's obsession for a first round pick is.  You can have a pick that has a 50/50 shot of being a bust basically or you can have a guaranteed stud.  If I can afford it, I'm taking the stud.  He's also at an optimal RB age to give a deal where you are not on the hook for much money after 3 or 4 years and you get 3 or 4 years of prime age performance.  He runs great, he blocks great, he catches balls great, he does it all.  Not to mention if the pick is a bust you are wasting millions in cap on a bad player.

Absolutely not.  Got Shady for next to nothing, spent a lot of $$ on him and got nothing to show for it.  

 

Zeke is not a top 10 talent in the league - at best a top 5 RB.  Pass.

I would first try to trade either a combo of 2nds and 3rds, but i would trade that first if i had to, like if there was another team in mix. Hes got atleast 4 years left, and look how easy he has made it on dak and that team.

 

i mean dak is complete dog poo and he has tricked some people to believe that dak is worth 30 mil per year lmfao

Hmmm...  it is tempting to give up a first round pick to add a me-first personality to team-first team.  Let me sleep on it.

Agreed. Antonio Brown comes to mind. Glad he nixed that trade.
