Commanders could trade for Kyler Murray

It's no secret that Josh Harris' ownership group is looking to make huge splashes this offseason. They paid a lot of money to wrestle the Washington Commanders from Dan Snyder. They will leave no stone unturned in their quest to get this storied franchise back to the NFL's top table.

While the draft and free agency are the typical routes for NFL teams looking for quarterback help, trading for a prominent veteran might be an option if the right opportunity presents itself. The likes of Deshaun Watson and Aaron Rodgers have been traded in recent years. More big names could be on the move this offseason.

This all comes back to the draft. The Chicago Bears and Arizona Cardinals could hold the top two picks. They also have two established figures under center right now - Justin Fields and Kyler Murray.

If one - or both - opts to start fresh with an incoming college recruit, then it doesn't take a genius to figure out that the aforementioned veterans will be made available. Murray's arguably shown more throughout his career. Seeing what it might take to land the former No. 1 overall selection could have its benefits.

Murray is an electrifying quarterback. He seems to have made a successful return following a serious knee injury. It's not been easy for the signal-caller this season, but it's far too soon to be writing him off.

Much will depend on the compensation. Murray is also on a lengthy, lucrative contract until 2029. If this is the plan of attack, it must be done with a long-term strategy in place.
