Re: More signs point to Lions trading up for Sammy Watkins
It would be absolutely nuts. According to what NFL Radio just said, they already pay Calvin $16 million and Tate $6 million a year. For his draft spot, Watkins would get almost $6 million himself. That would be almost $28 million invested in the WR position.
They have 6 picks in the first 4 rounds, but two are 4th round comp picks that can't be traded. They're better off letting guys fall to them. They're in a great spot in the first half of the round.
