    all they got was 4th round pick.. Elway is a dipshit.

    Dallas should have sent a 1st round pick for him.

    Has a decent chance of making the playoffs now, and should get some good looks opposite Hopkins.

    He is on the back nine of his career with a hefty salary. 4th round pick seems about right

    could have been the difference between Dallas making the Super Bowl or not. Worth a 1st rounder to fill their puss dripping gaping wound at wide receiver.

    Dallas already traded a 1st rounder for Amari Cooper.

    My nostalgic draft pick had been wasted on him thus far, but I could see him having a resurgence in that offense. Rooting for him.

    I never understand the NFL trade market. It seems like every year there are bona-fide players being traded away for 3+ Round draft picks. It's probably because I have little to no understanding of cap hits.

    He is owed $14 million next year and no one wants to pay that for a #2 receiver. You can't spend 1/12th of your Salary Cap on that position. For a #1 receiver, you can make that work, but not a #2. He is still a very solid player and he will help the Texans a lot with Fuller getting hurt, but he won't be on that roster next year unless they cut and re-sign him at a lower rate. Draft picks are hugely important. Having contributing players on rookie contracts gives teams so much flexibility with the rest of their cap. This makes these early round picks so valuable even if the 'hit' rate on getting star players is low. When you have to 'plug a hole' with a FA, you overpay. I look at what the Steelers did with Morgan Burnett this offseason. He is also on the decline (hasn't been healthy) and got like $5 million a year for 2 years. The Steelers probably could've gotten similar contributions out of a 3rd round pick at around $1 million per year. Value.
