It replaces their backup QB (Cousins) with our backup QB (Yates), and also gives them a good RB (Tate), and we get their backup QB and a mid-range draft pick out of it. Wasn't Tate a 3rd rounder anyways?
So we essentially maybe upgrade our backup QB and get something out of Tate before he ships out of Houston like he's going to do anyways in 2014.
RBs are a premium in the NFL, so I feel like a team like the Skins might figure they are only a solid RB away from being a real contender. In our position, we need more out of our backup QB than what Yates has ben giving us...plus, we need to always be scratching the surface for the next starter at the QB position.
Heh, they kind of have that already. You're forgetting their other rookie Alfred Morris who just ran for 1,613 with a 4.8 per carry average and 13 td's. Guy runs like a freaking truck. So they probably wouldn't do the trade since they gain nothing from it but another backup quarterback and a backup running back.
I agree though that we do need to get someone in here to develop for the future.
