Two late 1sts (futures), a 3rd and forced to take Goffs contract.  Oof.  Lions gonna lion.  

That's a **** of a draft pick haul though even if they're late 1sts. 

I hate the idea of Goff but I'm actually ok with this.

I don't see why this trade is a disaster, tbh. That's a much bigger haul pick wise than I had expected Stafford to bring back

Not a disaster at all. This is a really good trade.

I also read that there isn't much dead money on the cap if they decide to flip Goff after next season so this is a pretty big win for the Lions I think.

Goff's contract is just money. There is no dead cap hit when they cut him. They have Stafford's $19 million dead cap charge and won't have anything from Goff.

He is guaranteed $43 million through 2022.

I dont care where the first rounders are.  Getting 2 and a 3rd for Stafford.  Would have never believed that was possible.

Plus getting Goff who is just a placeholder is all right with me.  Any deal the Rams made was going to have to include Goff and frankly that's probably why the Lions got 2 1st rounders.

Just take the best deal. If its the bears offering 2 first, so be it

Absolutely not.  It would take a lot more than two low first round picks to trade him to the Bears and make them a Super Bowl contender.

2 firsts AND Goff?  What planet are you from if you don't like this.  I don''t even like Goff and I love this trade.

 And their 3rd this year. The Lions knocked it out of the ballpark with this trade.

I said yesterday when discussing Goff with @Motown Bombers that if I was the Lions, I'd only take Goff if they had to pay a premium to unload the contract and that's what happened. I was worried about Goff+2nd or something like that.

Also, they could still flip him to a desperate team with a big QB need with Stafford now off the market and less supply of  QBs on the market or just use him as a bridge QB until the new guy is ready to take over.

This was a creatively well done trade with so many layers to it that I didn't think they could pull off. Impressive

Silly thinking. YOur gonna pass the best deal cause you got play a guy in 12 percent.

Not at all.  I dont trade him in the division to a team with a Super Bowl caliber defense.

Doesn't matter, they traded him to the Rams for a better deal.

Take all those picks and #7 and trade Goff to Houston for Watson.

Would Houston take Goff, #7, and the two Rams first rounders for Watson?

And would Watson want to come here?  He has a no trade clause.
