Please, make it stop. A large post count indicates loquaciousness, not intelligence.
Actually, it is indicative of having participated in enough threads to have a prolonged opportunity to gain a functional understanding of realistic personnel moves. While several new members to the zone arrive with an impressive base of football knowledge, the majority of new posters are just beginning to pay attention to NFL personnel moves, team-building strategies, positional values, and persistent habits of winning organizations. Those new posters would do well to soak up some of that information before posting trades that no team in the league would ever do (if you doubt the certainty of this last statement, then you can count yourself among those who should observe the league for a bit longer).
While the OP's idea seems interesting and creative, it falls well outside of the realm of reasonable possibility. The league recognizes Kap as a franchise QB. No team with an ascending Franchise QB with an unprecedented combination of physical potential, intelligence, work ethic, and competitive drive would dump that QB while he is still improving rapidly for an unproven option with numerous question marks, for the simple purpose of saving money. It is a ludicrous notion.
The imaginary trades that populate the mock drafts more often than not reference trade value charts or recent trade history, meaning that they may never occur, but there is reason to believe that they could
occur. That is a huge difference, in terms of how a post will be received. You wouldn't walk into an NBA coaches meeting and suggest having one player sit on another player's shoulders all game, even though the added height could make shot blocking and dunking remarkably easy. It may seem like a creative idea, but no team would ever do it, and the average fan would know that and waste no time discussing the idea.
