Titans GM Jon Robinson mentioned during a Saturday press conference that it would take a “king’s ransom” for them to trade the No. 1 overall pick.
“It would take a substantial amount of picks to do that,” Robinson said, via Paul Kuharsky of ESPN.
Numerous reports have said that Tennessee is open for business in regards to the top pick and are looking for trade options.
Robinson said close to a month ago that he’s spoken to a few teams about possibly trading the No. 1 overall pick. However, Robinson characterized the talks as “exploratory” in nature.
“I’ve had a couple of conversations here and there. I think it is really more kind of exploratory at this point,’’ Robinson said, via Jim Wyatt of Titansonline.com. “As we get a little bit closer, a little bit more through the process with the combine and interviews and pro days, I expect there will be a few more exploratory calls, and there may not be. We’ll see.”
Robinson previously told reporters during his introductory press conference that they are willing to listen to “any and all offers” for their pick, so the message has been pretty consistent for a few months now.
The Titans earned the No. 1 overall pick after posting a regular season record of 3-13.
An NFL GM told Matt Miller of B/R that he expects teams tp fall in love with Cal QB Jared Goff once they have one-on-one interviews, and could eventually see someone trading up to No. 1 overall with the Titans to get him.
I’m sure there will be plenty more talk about the Titans possibly trading their No. 1 overall pick in the coming months.
