Love me Lattimore! Our salary cap is in hell. So I understand... he locks down players... tackles well... always looking to strip the ball out... but he just doesn’t have interceptions on his resume. Better to keep a guy like Marcus Williams to assist over the top. But I’d hate to trade Lattimore
Because teams learned to stop throwing his way.

Forgive my ignorance but is Murray still under contract? I'd definitely be into putting him up for trade
If we can't trade him I've heard decisions about him being cut are being considered. Maybe the cap gurus can chime in on his cap hit.

I think we'd be shocked if we heard some of the conversations these front offices have with each other. Just due diligence type of talks. Not trade proposals but just informal chatting. Team calls up and just wants to shoot the breeze on what it would take to get Latt. You think Mickey is hanging up on his fellow GMs?

Agreed. This is all par for the course. Teams keep tabs on other teams assets all the time. I mean, it would be different if the reports said that WE were the ones shopping Marshon. I personally think Marshon & Ry-Ram will be sign at all cost FAs. Those dudes are cornerstone level players on O & D.

Would you do it for the #1 pick? What about the first pick in the second round?
#1 pick is tempting, but that's a QB signing and I'm not honestly sold on the guys being discussed as the #1 pick. Sean will be here for a few more years at least and I don't see him being interested in grooming someone and going through those growing pains. I feel like he wants to win now, not in a few years when the rookie is ready. Mahomes is an anomaly. Rarely is a QB that good so fast and we saw in the Superbowl that even as good as he is, he's still young and has alot to learn.

So if you get the #1 pick what do you do with it? If we made a move like that, which nobody would give up the #1 for any player on our team imo, I would then trade the pick for multiple picks and hope I hit big in the draft again so we could acquire great talent at cap friendly prices. Just my 2 pennies.

The part of the offseason where some Joe Blow on Twitter posts a rumor tweet and it only takes one person to go 👀 and post it on here and then we get a 5 page thread. Yay.

Who am I kidding, that "part of the offseason" is all year long on here haha

Of course teams have called to ask if Lattimore is on the table, just none of their offers have come even close to being entertainable. Anyone who thinks GM's aren't calling each other just to fish are just being willfully ignorant. The most important thing to remember is that if it is not Glazer/Schefter then take anything you see with a HUGE grain of salt.
