If you flipped the logic around a bit you may have more buy-in. As someone has already indicated, rebuilding teams normally don't trade away valuable draft picks for veteran players. The team that would probably consider a deal like this would be on the verge of a winning season. This team's GM would be looking for those players that would put them over the top and deep into the playoffs.

The one deal breaking question would be whether or not Madden is the kind of player to make the difference to a team on the verge of winning big.
