The Buffalo Bills have had a relatively quiet offseason thus far, but of course, that can all change with one blockbuster trade by general manager Brandon Beane.
Coming into the offseason, a WR2 and additional upgrades on defense were viewed as the Bills’ main offseason priorities. A difficult cap situation has prevented Beane from filling up several roster weaknesses, including the WR2 role. But for all we know, he could be saving his best for the upcoming draft.
NFL Network proposed a blockbuster trade scenario that would help Beane address not one, but two roster flaws: A deal with the Arizona Cardinals in which Buffalo gets star wideout DeAndre Hopkins and the No. 3 selection in exchange for 2021 first-rounder Gregory Rousseau, the No. 27 and No. 59 picks plus 2024 first and second-rounders.

Hopkins and fellow Pro Bowler Stefon Diggs would form a dynamic 1-2 receiving duo, for starters. And with the No. 3 pick, the Bills would be able to take Alabama outside linebacker Will Anderson Jr. or a different highly-touted defensive lineman.
Reports have indicated that Arizona is willing to deal the No. 3 pick. This trade proposal from NFL Network makes good sense for both sides, but would Beane and/or Arizona GM Monti Ossenfort agree to it in real life? Only they know the real answer.
But even though this exact hypothetical trade is obviously not going to happen, it doesn’t mean that one or both teams will remain quiet on the trade front come draft weekend.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
