Colts trade the Andrew Luck to the Bengals for ...

It's that time of the year for me to start imagining bizarre free agency and draft scenarios. Today I was thinking about the Luck Manning Horseshoe dilemma and I thought of a crazy scenario where Andrew Luck would end up playing for the Bengals. Before I go into detail I'd like to point out that this is just for fun.

Andrew Luck and the 1st pick of the 2012 NFL Draft have tremendous value. If Carson Palmer is worth two 1st rounders (I know, one was conditional) then what is a prospect like Andrew Luck worth? Twenty 1st's rounders?

[ Pause for laughter ]

So I started to wonder, what if Peyton drank a magical healing potion and was restored to his former greatness? What if Jim Irsay took the Colts out of rebuild-mode and flipped the switch on all-out-epic-superbowl-push-mode (aka eagles-mode)? What if they didnt need a QB at all? Could the Colts be in the market to trade their one golden box of Lucky Charms for 20 boxes of Cinnamon Toast Crunch?

Plenty of teams would approach the Colts but few would have the ammunition to get the deal done. The Cincinnati Bengals, however, made the Colts an offer they couldnt refuse.

The Indianapolis Colts have traded the 1st pick to the Cincinnati Bengals for Andy Dalton and the 17th and 21st pick, and with the 1st pick of the 2012 NFL Draft, the Cincinnati Bengals select Andrew Luck

What do you think about this move? Does it make sense for both teams? Could the Bengals fill the rest of their holes in free agency and later in the draft?
