3 Trade packages the Falcons could offer for Roquan Smith
By Nick Halden
Considering he is in a contract year and has a lot of the leverage it is hard to see the Bears getting more than a day two pick. Despite his immense value rosters are already filling out and teams who are going all in have already pushed their chips to the center of the table. Chicago is going to have to appreciate this and hope to get a day two pick and possible player compensation for Smith in a deal.
For Atlanta, this is a straightforward proposal realizing you aren’t going to find a player as talented as Smith with your 2nd round pick and you move on from Deion. Jones needs a fresh start and Atlanta needs to move on from a player who didn’t appear to want to be in Atlanta any longer last season.
Getting Deion helps Chicago soften the blow while their obvious focus is on the draft compensation. This is going to be a long season for the Bears who obviously need a reset. The only question for the team is if they have the right quarterback for that rebuild in Justin Fields? This is a clear win for Atlanta, however, it is hard to find a team that would be willing to give more than a 2nd rounder and a player in Deion who has a chance to be an impact player.
