  • Potential trade with the Cardinals?

    http://www.arizonasportsfans.com/200...posal/#more-93

    Please note that before reading the article, this looks to be just an idea by a writer. It is not an offer that is on the table right now. Just an idea. With that said, it's an interesting proposal for sure. Obviously it probably won't happen, because trades like that are just a rarity in today's NFL.

    The trade: The Baltimore Ravens send TE Quinn Sypniewski, DB Ronnie Prude, and DE/OLB Jarret Johnson to the Arizona Cardinals for WR Bryant Johnson, CB Antrel Rolle, and DE/OLB Darryl Blackstock.

    What we would be losing:

    Quinn Sypniewski is one of my favorite backups on the team, I like him alot and he's a really solid player for us. I also really like Ronnie Prude. I would hate to see them go, but they're still backups, and both are expendable.

    Jarret Johnson is another guy that I like, but Antwan Barnes looks like he's a future stud for us and I think he could start right away if needed.

    Now we go to what we would be getting.

    Antrel Rolle is a guy who many felt was the top corner in the 2005 draft. He's dissapointed a bit but the talent is obviously there, and playing in a great defense like ours may be just what he needs.

    Bryant Johnson is a player who I really like. The Cards drafted him 17th overall to potentially be their future #1. He's played really well for them, unfortunately he's stuck behind two studs in Fitzgerald and Boldin. He's one of the better slot receivers in the game, and having him around would certainly make for, theoretically, a more explosive passing game. Plus a trio of Clayton, Williams, and Johnson could have us set for a number of years.

    Darryl Blackstock is one of those guys who, on paper, looks like a perfect for for Rex's scheme. He's got that DE/OLB versatility that fits well, and the athleticism is there.

    So the bottom line in this is that it's tough to part with guys like Syp, Prude, and JJ, but anytime you make a deal you are going to have to part with some guys you don't want to have to part with. What makes this trade so intriguing is the amount of talent we get in return. We'd be getting 3 guys that were drafted 8th, 17th, and 95th respectively. If they all come to Bmore and live up to their potential, which is certainly possible, then this could be great for us.

    It's an interesting thought for sure. I really like the amount of talent we'd be getting and I'd be pretty happy with it.

    i think its a good trade for both teams... the cards players who would got to baltimore all have potential they are just stuck in a bad situation (be it depth chart or losing team)... and zona could really use barnes and clayton...

      I don't care about losing Ronnie Prude or Jarrett Johnson, but Ive gone on record saying I think Quinn Sypniewski is a starting calibur TE and if Heap goes down and Syp stepped in he would steal Heaps job! <--you want bold predictions, it don't get no bolder!!!

        Barnes or Clayton? Neither are in the proposed deal and neither are going anywhere.

          Rumor has it that Bryant Johnson wants to sign with the Ravens next year anyway because he is good friends with several of the Ravensí players. While the Cardinals hate to part with Johnson, he is a luxury as a #3 WR, and if he bolts as a UFA next year, the Cardinals would get nothing in return for him.
          This was in the article and really caught my eye. Johnson is from Baltimore, so this could be the perfect situation for him. Derrick Mason will probably not be here for much longer. A WR trio of Clayton, Williams and Johnson would be pretty decent. The question is though, would he be content with being the 3rd WR just like he is in Arizona? Also would he be happy in this offense. He probably wouldn't get as many balls as he would want. It's something to look into after the season though.

            So far from my limited research this potential trade wouldn't work for the Ravens' because of cap concerns. I would assume that 2 former 1st round picks would be greater then the roughly 3 million or so we'd be shipping out plus with only around 4 or 5 million in room the 3 incoming players would have to fit in that. But I guess Ozzie would rework BJ's contract but still why would we bring in these guys midway through preseason and still expect them to be ready by Week 1?

                Well its not really because Sypniewski and Prude are young up and comers and Rolle and Johnson are former 1st rounders that haven't really lived up to expectations. While I am slightly in favor of it if all my concerns could be addressed, I still think we'd be giving up to much talent to the Cards.

                  I would be in favor of it although I highly doubt its possible. I think Rolle could really blossom here in Baltimore.

                    Yeah but Rolle was drafted in 2005. Its 2007. Plus I believe he was injured his first year. You really as a team cant give up on a top 10 pick after 1 season of play. So because you guys have Rolle in this trade, I agree w/ the poster above that this is one-sided favoring the Ravens. Its like "Here, let me trade you some young guys for your top 10 pick at CB, who hasnt had a chance to prove himself, a good reciever (but i think that he is very tradeable), and Blackenstock." Its more Rolle in my eyes that throws off the trade because IMO he is still an unknown. He could bust, but I think its a bit to early in his career to say that.

                      He's well on his way to losing his starting job so it may be safe to say that the Cards are inclined to move on without him.

                        Always thought Rolle was a FS type personally.

                          Great for the Ravens if it ever was true, Quinn is great but I am not on his jock like others, I thought Trent Edwards looked just as good as Quinn at times, not at blocking though. I love Dan Wilcox, and we should get back Darnell "DD" Denkins. I have always said Jarrett Johnson is trash, and Prude is decent but I like Martin more. Blackstock is an absolute gamer, not great speed but tackles great, Antrel would be the replacement for Samari and we need to even think about life without C-mac soon. Johnson has speed and produced similarly to Mark Clayton despite being behind Anquan and Fitz. For the Cardinals don't know why they would do this, Quinn gives them depth and a possible starter, but Ben Patrick has looked nice, JJ is trash, and Prude is no more than depth.

                            I would like this to happen, send 2 back ups and a starter who will probably get benched by next season for Barnes or someone else. Here is a age breakdown...

                            Blackstock-24
                            Johnson-26
                            Rolle-24

                            Rolle could do well playing with our U connection so that will help.

                            Johnson can give us a nice young beastly WR trio.

                            Blackstone provides us depth.

                            The main question for me is how is Mason going to act. This means Mason could slide all the way down to #4. Could we possibly send him to Arizona but he would complain about being #3 there.

                              Rolle needs to move to free safety soon if he doesn't want to be called a bust. I think Arizona will add another cornerback next spring and move Antrel.
