Titans, Eagles and Saints 3-Team Trade?

Here's a short and sweet trade proposal for tonight knowing the Titans hold most of the leverage and the Eagles are the most desperate/desirous:

Titans Get:

QB Sam Bradford (Eagles)
DE Cameron Jordan (Saints)
SS Rafael Bush (Saints)
DT Broderick Bunkley (Saints)
TE Brent Celek (Eagles)
OG Evan Mathis (Eagles)
3rd round in 2015 (Eagles) the #84 overall
3rd round in 2016 (Eagles)

Eagles Get:

1st round (Titans) the #2 overall (i.e. Mariota)
5th round (Saints) the #154 overall
7th round (Saints) the #230 overall
LB David Hawthorne

Saints Get:

1st round (Eagles) the #20 overall
2nd round (Titans) the #33 overall
4th round (Titans) the #100 overall
LB Mychal Kendricks (Eagles)

Titans get a starting QB and three starting defensive players including a top-shelf pass rusher, a starting tight end a Pro Bowl offensive guard and two 3rd round choices. Tennessee gives up its 1st, 2nd and 4th rounders.

Eagles get the player they covet greatly, two draft choices this year and a linebacker who can play anywhere in the 3-4 scheme the Eagles use.

The Saints get three picks in the top 100 this year including two quality choices in the top one-third of the draft and a young starting LB.

I don't think the Saints will have enough cap room to extend Jordan at what he feels his market value is. As a result, it may be time to trade him at or near his peak market value at $7M (manageable) to a team in need while replacing him with a younger, cheaper and (hopefully) more productive player who will be under contract for the next five years (presumably). The Saints would have 8 of the top 100 picks in a deep draft. Smart. The Saints save $9M in cap space this year and $7M next year.

Note: Both Cameron Jordan and Rafael Bush are poised to become Unrestricted Free Agents next year. Trade while we can get value?

To move up 18 spots for a franchise QB, the Eagles give up Bradford, Celek, Kendricks, Mathis and two 3rd round choices.

The Titans will have a year to find out if Bradford is healthy enough to build a team around moving forward. If not, the Titans will have another top 10 pick next year and plenty of players as negotiating chips if Bradford does not work out for some reason. If he does, everybody's a winner!

Re: Titans, Eagles and Saints 3-Team Trade?

I wouldn't be surprised to see us move up and then possibly move back to recoup some picks. In fact I'll be surprised if we don't move up. Loomis and Payton have a propensity for going after the player they covet(damn the torpedoes.......full steam ahead).

It's not like the FO hasn't moved up before with many fewer selections available than our nine in this draft.

Lenny is like bizarre Mel Kiper. We won't see him again after the draft until this time next year
