A Realistic Haul for Ramsey

What’s more than likely with a huge name like Jalen Ramsey is multiple pick swaps and multiple picks included. The Jags, as aforementioned, are seeking at least a first-round pick for Ramsey, meaning they want more.

They’ll get more too. Over the next few days, with Fitzpatrick off the board, it’ll turn into a bidding contest for those most on the verge of contending for a Super Bowl. New Orleans is as close to contention as anyone in the league.

They just need that extra step. Also, just take a step back and imagine a secondary that includes Marshon Lattimore and Jalen Ramsey. As long as Ramsey can be kept in check, they’d arguably have the league’s best secondary.

The Saints don’t have much longer with Drew Brees at the helm. His window for success is closing, and the Saints may need to find a star-level quarterback after that. They can tank then, but for now, they must go all in.

In three years, Brees should be just about done with his career. That following season, the Saints can rebuild and find that next future Hall of Fame quarterback. That said, not every team is as close to contending as New Orleans, so if this is what it takes, it’s what must be done.

If this third and final trade is the only one on the table, are you taking it?
