Baltimore Ravens Rumors: 3 fresh Patrick Queen trades to consider
By Ryan Heckman
Finally, an incredibly scary and intriguing team that could use the likes of Queen is the Detroit Lions. Look at what Dan Campbell and the front office have been able to accomplish with this team over the past year and a half. They have gone from a bottom feeder to a team on the rise, and on both sides of the ball.
Jared Goff has given this offense a new life, when he was supposed to be a throw-in after Detroit traded Matthew Stafford. But, he enjoyed one of the better years of his career in 2022 and the offense is definitely headed in the right direction in a post-Stafford era.
Defensively, this team has become much more scary, led by the young Aidan Hutchinson. Signing Chauncey Gardner-Johnson gives this team an attitude and edge in their secondary as well. If they could land Queen, look out in the NFC North. That division is wide open, it seems, especially after seeing Aaron Rodgers get dealt out of Green Bay.
The Ravens land a pair of picks, here, which is again a little more than they'd get with just a conditional pick. But, this ensures the Lions get a guy who they can extend and keep around rather than chancing it in free agency next year.
