Nature abhors a vacuum. But then again, so do NFL sports news sites when there is no real NFL activity, news, or information to share. But that doesn't stop creative minds at Bleacher Report from spinning the wheel of bad trade proposals to see what comes out. But even with that in mind, their latest 5 trade proposals of 3-team trades are a bit over the top even for them

In this fairy tale package of NFL trade proposals, B/R writer Kristopher Knox takes off the kid gloves and hits his keyboard with proposed trades that may have been intended for Middle Earth after the Elves, Dwarves, and Men had defeated the dark Orcs and Kobold armies of Sauron. But you have to give the guy credit for a unique and imaginative take.

For the LA Rams, he proposes that they coordinate a trade that will net them Pittsburgh Steelers veteran DT Cameron Hayward. But to get him, the Rams must involve the Denver Broncos, who must kick in WR Courtland Sutton. Okay, it's a complex three team trade that is easy to get lost in the details.

The proposed trade

The proposed trade targets the areas of need for these three teams: The Broncos load up on two Round 3 draft picks, plus replace Courtland Sutton with Tutu Atwell. The Steelers exchange veteran DT Cameron Heyward for Sutton and a Round 4 pick, and the LA Rams kick in Round 3 and 4 picks, as well as Turu Atwell, to add veteran DT Cameron Heyward

  • Broncos Get: Rams' 2025 third-round pick, Steelers' 2026 third-round pick, WR Tutu Atwell
  • Steelers Get: WR Courtland Sutton, Rams' 2026 fourth-round pick
  • Rams Get: DT Cameron Heyward
