5 Trades that the Cardinals could make this coming trade deadline

Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports

So the Cardinals are far above may people's expectations and will now look to add young talent to build around a young core of Budda Baker, Byron Murphy, Kyler Murray, and Christian Kirk. The Cardinals should target better and young offensive linemen and take fliers on them while also maybe trying their hand at a superstar.

Trade 1:

Cardinals get: RT Jordan Malieta

Eagles get: 2020 5th round pick (Arizona not Miami)

Malieta is a former rugby player who was drafted by the Eagles in the 7th round of the 2018 draft and has shown promise in the preseason games that he played. Although the Eagles really like him, they have all pro Lane Johnson at right tackle so there is no real place for him to start. The Cardinals should take a flier on Malieta because he fits the Air Raid or K Raid Scheme to perfection. For there to be some sort of balance in the Air Raid, you need a strong powerful tackle to set up outside runs (Especially on the right side) and that is exactly what Maileta could do. The Eagles could be looking for more draft capital to set up a blockbuster trade of their own and could easily accept this offer. Although Maileta is raw, he possesses all the physical capabilities as well as some skill to be a future starter at RT.

Trade 2:

Cardinals get: C Billy Price

Bengals get: 2020 5th Round Pick (Miami)

Price was benched and outplayed by Trey Hopkins for the center job and has now moved to right guard in the short term but the Bengals look like they are ready to move on. He was a first round pick a year back but could not hold on to the starting job at center. The Cardinals should definitely take a flier on him because AQ Shipley could hang up the cleats at the season's end and that would likely leave a hole there.

Trade 3:

Cardinals get: LT Trent Williams

Redskins get: 2020 3rd Round Pick and 2021 5th Round Pick

The Redskins front office is likely the most foolish in all of sports right now and they are somehow trying to find a way to hang on to their all pro tackle who is just now showing up. Although Williams is 31, he still likely has 4-5 more years of good play in him and the Cardinals will explore the possibility to get him. D.J. Humphries is a better RT so it is logical to move him to right tackle and resign him if they get Williams. This is the Dream Trade for the Cardinals Fans as they would hope that the output is something close to what the Rams got with Andrew Whitworth.

Trade 4:

Cardinals get: WR Keke Coutee

Houston Texans get: 2021 4th round pick and 2021 6th round pick

Keke Coutee has sunk on the Texans depth chart after the Texans got Kenny Stills and Will Fuller returned so the Texans will likely be listening to offers. Coutee went to Texas Tech and put up massive numbers under Kliff Kingsbury and should be an immediate sensation in Arizona if the Texans were to trade him. I would love this trade as he would give the Cardinals an outside threat that they desperately need in the future to complement with Kirk and Isabella inside.

Trade 5:

Cardinals get: DE Solomon Thomas

49ers get: LB Brooks Reed and 2020 7th Round Pick

Soloman Thomas, the former 3rd overall pick has become irrelevant in the great 49ers front that features Buckner, Bosa, Ford, and Armstead that the 49ers are shopping him. Thomas would instantly become a started next to Corey Peters and Rodney Gunter and would provide an instant upgrade as well as a piece for the future. The Cardinals need to consider that and trade Brooks Reed who has not performed well in limited snaps. This would also let the Cardinals get Pete Robertson onto the roster and he looked good in the preseason. The Compensation for the 49ers is low because of the DE's cap hit to the Cardinals and the fact that they would be in line for a 3rd round composatory pick.

What to you think? Are these trades realistic options?
