Raiders mortgage everything to get Joe Burrow
First, let me start by saying that this trade scenario is extremely unlikely, but with how many fans I have seen say that the Raiders should try and trade up for Joe Burrow, I figured I would show just how much it would cost. If the Raiders do not trust Derek Carr, Jon Gruden could go all out on Joe Burrow if he really wanted, but it would surely cost at least two first-round picks, maybe more, and they would have to move on from Carr.
How the trade make sense
This trade only makes sense for the Raiders if they have no faith in Carr and truly believe Joe Burrow is enough to turn the team around. Like I said, there is pretty much no way this trade happens, but in the crazy scenario where it does, this is what they would likely have to give.
For the Bengals, they could completely change their franchise with this trade. Derek Carr could thrive with Joe Mixon, AJ Green, and Tyler Boyd, as well as the Bengals having two first-round picks to build the team. In addition, if they did not win in 2020, there is a certain Clemson quarterback who will be in play at pick No. 1 next April.
