Value of a QB trade

Posted by Chris Brown on January 29, 2015 – 2:26 pm

With the 2015 draft class widely considered to be a down year for quarterbacks, the trade market this offseason could be a route taken by some teams looking for bona fide quarterback competition.

That could be what the Bills decide to do. ESPN’s Adam Caplan assessed the QB trade market knowing that Mike Glennon and Kirk Cousins are two likely trade pieces for Tampa Bay and Washington this offseason. Here’s what he thought both players would command in a trade.

Multiple execs mentioned to me during Senior Bowl week that Kirk Cousins and Mike Glennon could be at least a one-year solution as a starter for teams struggling to find competition at the position.

Cousins enters the final season of his contract in Washington and Glennon enters his third season in Tampa Bay. One NFC team exec said he thought both players would yield a fourth- or fifth-round pick in a swap.

Buffalo has a pair of fifth-round draft choices in the 2015 draft.
