In economic terms, it is not a seller's market. Under these circumstances you have to reduce your asking price to something more attractive to the buyer.

In my draft, I'm wanting to put the pieces in place to have a dominate defense built around the linebackers. I can lower my asking price, to make the trade, and to get me the picks I need to achieve my objective. This is a deep draft in the positions I'm targeting. So I come out ahead even if I don't get full sticker price value.
