With the Oakland Raiders trading a first and a conditional first round pick for Carson Palmer (a move that I personally thought was way overpaying) I have begun to think about just how much a quarterback can be worth. Being a Bills fan this obviously focuses around Ryan Fitzpatrick.
It is very unlikely that the Bills would be at 4-2 without Fitzpatrick on the team. Fitzpatrick will obviously be a very pivotal figure in the playoff push for the Bills this year, as we carry a possibly of breaking out of the 11 year playoff-less streak. It is still debatable, however, if Fitzpatrick is going to be the elite quarterback to have a consistent, super-bowl contending team. There is always lots of young talent in the draft, and you can certainly get some quality talent with two first round draft picks, helping to further build up this Bills team. Unfortunately it would be very unlikely the Bills would still have a chance to contend for the playoffs this year.
So Bills fans, would you trade Ryan Fitzpatrick for two Raider's First Round Draft picks?
