Trade 1: No

Trade 2: No

First thing I look at when grading trades is who is receiving the best player? In both of those trades, you are giving away the best player. Not a recipe for success. You definitely need to upgrade your WR. Couple of options:

1.You could trade Forte or Ridley in a package if needed to acquire a top flight receiver.

2. You could trade Graham for a top 5 WR and then replace him with another good TE is there's one on your wire, like Olsen, Rudolph or Pitta or package Graham with someone else and try to get a lesser but decent TE on the back end of the deal.

3. If somehow, you do wind up dealing Trent it should be for an A.J. Green, Julio Jones, or maybe Roddy White. I wouldn't deal Trent for even Calvin or Andre Johnson.
