Redskins traded to 49ers Trent Williams OT for a 2020 5th and a 2021 3rd. What is Warford worth? I think he’s worth atleast a 3 or 4 next year and maybe a 6 this year.

At this point, why not hold on to Warford?

We have been devaluing him pretty hard, but he is still a pretty good player.

If we are trying to clear space for a contributor then I understand, but I don't want to just drop him for a 6th rounder and pretend we won the trade.

I’m cool with a 3 or 4 in 2021. We’re going to need lots of draft capital especially over the next 2-3 years to be in a position to snipe a QB.

if all we can get is a 6th this year, we’d be better off keeping War Daddy

What a bargain for Niners. Why do the rich continue to get richer?

Willams is a top notch Left Tackle, while Warford is an average to below average Right Guard.

Comparing the two are off base.
warford might best be traded for another player rather than a draft pick

Agreed, also Warford counts for almost 13 mil against the cap on the last year of his deal...the Saints have very little leverage to get even a low round (6 or 7) pick would be a minor miracle.....

Not really, Trent is a great player when healthy....but he hasn't been healthy in a good while....maybe the rest helps him but he will be 32 in July (hey, he has the same birthday I do!!!)....I think even if he plays some, he will be in decline....Of course I could be wrong but that is my 2 cents.....

Williams hasn’t played football in over a year and Staley seems likely to retire.

It was definitely a nice move. But I think it’s more about them not having a gaping hole if/when Staley retires instead of being an actual upgrade

He’d likely have more value at the trading deadline to a team who needs a starter due to injury, etc.

I think his base salary is probably a bigger hindrance for his trade value than his actual play. But they don't have to take on the 5 mil left on the signing bonus, we eat that either way. So we either need to find a team that thinks another lineman is the last piece or someone that thinks he has enough left in the tank to bring in and rework his contract to back load it. I have nothing against keeping him on the team but I personally think the cap savings has more potential value.
