Now they have another 1st rounder as trade ammo if they need it.
The other teams they'll be fighting for '14 draft positioning are going to be Jacksonville (a real contender to go 0-16), Oakland, and Tampa Bay are all going to be in the market for a QB.
With the premium placed on a franchise QB, I doubt any of them sell, for any reason, with the chance to take one.
