Get draft picks from him
He wasn’t a huge difference-maker last year, and this team has more holes than swiss cheese to fill. Getting a first and even some day-three picks aren’t the worst of ideas. Heck, I’d take a second, a fourth, a fifth and a seventh for him at this point. Let him be someone else’s headache.
The draft picks would be a godsend with how much work needs to be done still at this point to rebuild this team. Let’s be clear, this team shouldn’t blow itself up, because it was already blown up after the 2018 season ended. Key players in the passing game (Duke Johnson), the pass blocking (Kevin Zeitler) and the secondary (Jabril Peppers) were sent packing and the team regressed. It then signed and drafted players that just didn’t replace the production and efficiency lost.
The team needs to pull some starters from this upcoming draft class, as well as some reliable backups. The team under John Dorsey let way too many people leave who would’ve been viable for this team long term, and that type of damage can’t be undone in one off-season. They could put on a competent product without Beckham in 2020, they did just that in 2018 but the positions of need for this team need to be addressed as cost-effectively as possible. Eventually, the big names on this team will need new deals, so getting cost-effective replacements, starters, backups and more from this draft needs to be paramount.
Trading some guys, namely Beckham, to get those holes addressed would be a prudent and wise business move.
