1 Thursdays at one?

Can't make any live showings at that time, so will be limited to watching later...

2 Looking at some of the more complete trades.

If they had stayed put:

SF: Trey Lance for Micah Parsons, a 2022 1st round pick, a 2022 3rd round pick and a 2023 1st round pick

MIA : Jaylen Waddle, Isaiahh Loudermilk for Micah Parsons, Zech McPhearson, and a 2022 1st round pick

PHI: Devonta Smith for Micah Parsons and Chauncey Golston

CHI: Justin Fields for Kadarius Toney, Jamar Johnson, a 2022 1st round pick and a 2022 4th round pick

NYJ: Alijah Vera-Tucker, Tyree Gillespie for Christian Darrisaw, Kellen Mond and Wyatt Davis

JAX: Travis Etienne, K'Lavon Chaisson (2020), Robert Rochell for Jalen Ramsey

BAL: Odafe Oweh, Ben Cleveland, Marco Wilson, and a 2022 5th round pick for Orlando Brown Jr., Nick Bolton, and a 2022 6th round pick

Yes, it doesn't go down exactly like this but still an interesting exercise nonetheless.

3 Philly's trade is easier to…

Philly's trade is easier to view as a whole, with 6->12->10, with 6->12 being 6 -> 12 + 4th + 2022 1st, and 12->10 being 12 -> 10 + 3rd, so the net change is DeVonta Smith + Zech McPhearson + 2022 1st for Jaylon Waddle and Chauncey Golston. 

Which has the advantage of symmetry, because you've got a WR and defensive player on both sides. Could also look around Golston's position for a player with total symmetry, which actually isn't a bad way to look at it (like, average of Deablo/Molden/Melifonwu/Thomas/Jones/Stephens/Hall). 

But really the lesser players are basically equal washes, fundamentally it's DeVonta Smith + 2022 1st for Jaylon Waddle.
