Rivers & Gronk for RG3/Newton & Bennett????

Postby ChargersSkinsFan » Wed Sep 26, 2012 8:12 am

Do you think I should make this trade, and if so which QB should I ask for?

I have P. Rivers & Gronkowski, and I can probably get RG3 or C. Newton & Martellus Bennett...

Do you think I should make the trade? Thanks for your input...

Difficult to say without knowing what your roster looks like.

I like RG3 way more than Rivers and Bennett is getting good looks from Eli. The uptick in point from RG3 would compensate for the loss of Gronk...even though Bennett should do a nice job of keeping pace.

Post your roster and we can weigh in with more precision.

OK, I just reread your initial post...I was thinking you were offered the deal. I was wrong. If you're proposing the deal I'm not confident he'll be up for receiving Rivers to replace his RG3. You're better off going after Cam in this case.

Since he already has a stud QB left should a trade go through, I'd say he'd only be interested in receiving a WR1 or RB1 in return...or a combo of two WR2/RB2s...maybe Dwayne Bowe straight for Cam or Calvin Johnson for RG3 but I don't think anything would work.
