3 Aggresive trades the Chicago Bears could consider
Would Ryan Poles consider sending the necessary draft capital for Isaiah Wynn?
The New England Patriots selected Isaiah Wynn with their first-round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. The Patriots acquired the 23rd-overall selection from the Los Angeles Rams and used that pick to select Wynn. Unfortunately, it does not sound as though the two sides are not seeing eye to eye and rumors are that Wynn is on the trade block.
If Ryan Poles were to make a trade for Isaiah Wynn, he must do so knowing he’d have to extend/pay him at some point soon. Wynn is currently playing on the last year of his rookie contract and is ready to be paid.
With a couple of seasons plagued by injuries, I’m sure that New England isn’t wanting to commit to big money before Wynn plays on the final season of his contract — similar to the Roquan Smith situation. The offseason for Wynn has been somewhat similar to Teven Jenkins too though.
Last season, Trent Brown was the starting right tackle and Wynn was the starting left tackle. That changed this season as the two were swapped and Wynn has been slotted in at right tackle. I think everyone understands that being a starting left tackle leads to a more lucrative career. Wynn cannot be happy about the shift.
Wynn will be 27 years old soon and has looked solid when healthy. The problem is that his injury history has to be a reason the Patriots receive less than what many might expect for a former first-round left tackle. New England is struggling with the salary cap and look at trading Wynn (who is owed $10 million) could help resolve that situation.
Would you send a third-round draft pick for a proven tackle in Isaiah Wynn? Is that enough for the Patriots to move him? There would probably need to be some later-round draft pick swapping too.
