Cardinals - Jets Trade

Post by bonkypong » Sun Mar 27, 2022 9:35 pm

Cardinals Send:

QB - Alan Luster
2022 pick 4.17

Jets Send:

WR - Devon Smith
SLB - Dylan Courts
2022 pick 3.16

Cardinals Rationale: QB Luster would have been made to compete for the starter role with 3rd year first round QB Jared Wirthel who is extremely promising. There is a possibility of a full blown 'Ben Simmons style' meltdown from Luster so a trade avoids that possibility. This is also the last year of Luster's contract, and he is unlikely to be re-signed by Arizona at the amount requested. The Cardinals believe they can 'win now' with the help of an elite veteran WR, but the FA class is limited, so taking the risk on Wirthel makes sense - especially with the addition of a young linebacker and a slight upgrade on this years draft.

Jets are in rebuild mode and need a QB, having finally released the overpaid and underperforming Bryce Petty. This trade provides an opportunity to give Luster a trial as a rental, with the option of resigning him for a longer deal. Jets are sorry to see Smith go but he’ll be spent by the time we’re competitive again.
