What should a trade for Malcolm Butler look like to you?

My Opinion:

Patriots previous trades & now guideline for Saints potential trade for Malcolm Butler

Trade 1:
(New England/Arizona)

Arizona receives: Chandler Jones

New England receives: 2016 2nd round pick & Jonathan Cooper


Trade 2:
(New England/Cleveland)

Cleveland receives: Jamie Collins

New England receives: Conditional 2018 4th round pick, which ultimately became a 2017 3rd round compensatory pick
-------------------------------------------------

After reviewing New England's past trades of Chandler Jones & Jamie Collins, who were in contract years identical to Malcolm Butler, I believe a fair trade with New Orleans should look as follows...

Potential trade:
(New Orleans/New England)

New Orleans receives: Malcolm Butler

New England receives: 2017 3rd Round pick(#76 overall) & 2017 7th round pick(#229 overall)

Why it makes sense:

The value New England receives falls right in the middle of their two prior trades with Arizona & Cleveland. Chandler Jones(4years/36sacks in NE) nets the biggest return because of the Higher positional value & money he commands as an EDGE defender, followed by Malcolm Butler at CB, then Jamie Collins as an LB. While Malcolm Butler has developed a name for himself these past two years, I see no reason why New Orleans should give up more than what Arizona paid for Jones, a former 1st round pick with top production.

Re: What should a trade for Malcolm Butler look like to you?

Id love the highest pick to be a third but i think it will be a second

My hope is if we give them a 2 we get something back aswell as Butler thinking 4 or 5 back

Or if its the 32 selection we get the Panthers 3rd they own

They will get a 3rd in a comp pick if they dont replace him in 2019 if he leaves as a FA in 2018

Re: What should a trade for Malcolm Butler look like to you?

I'd rather keep the picks & take a CB at 32 or 42 instead though. heck my dream scenario would be going heavy front 7 in the first 2 rounds then double dipping at CB with the two 3rd rounders. If the Saints give up anything more than #42 overall i'll be upset, but life goes on. I just dont want this team to make a boneheaded decision and feel like they absolutely need Malcolm Butler at the expense of valuable picks.

i could live with the 2nd rounder idea you mentioned. I dont want them touching the 1st rounders though.

I dont see them agreeing a 3rd.
A 7th means nothing and they would likely get a 3rd as a comp pick. They'd be better keeping him on a cheap tender and lettung him walk next year
