Give it up. The Lions won't trade out of the number one simply because no one else will be interested in taking on that contract. It's just the way it is. If Matt Stafford was the consensus top player in football, I could see other teams being interested. But without a clear cut number one, it just won't happen.


If Matt Stafford was the consensus top player in college football, this thread wouldn't exist and we wouldn't be thinking of trading down.

AND. If Favre retires, the Jets are going to be in full panic mode. They won't be able to outbid anyone for a free agent QB. They can't be too sure what will be left at #17 overall, ( would the Jets be very comfortable with Sanchez?), so they will trade up as far as they have to to get their choice of QBs and renegotiate as many contracts as necessary to sign him.

We might be able to get all of the Jets picks this year and their 1st rounder next year for #1 overall.

The Jets wont be in panic mode at all. They have a veteran team. Taking a QB at #1 not only put much more strain on their fragile cap situation, they cant have a rookie under center. If Favre is gone, they'll get a short term FA answer, or start Clemens.
