I don't understand why we franchised him if we didn't plan to sign him long term or try to trade him. Everyone points to the RB contracts and Beason as limiting our cap mobility, but that Hardy tag is HUGE this year. We may just be setting ourselves up to get Julius'd again.

I am sure the Boston Boss has a plan.  No worries.

the entire secondary is being overhauled. keep the line as is even if it is at a premium to minimize the damage to one of the best defenses in the league.

Consider it a one year rental while they train a replacement.  They were stoked to get Kony Ealy.  We've seen the negative effects of what big long term deals can do to a team if they don't pan out.  Hardy is still pretty young and has a handful of good seasons ahead of him if he stays out of trouble, but is it worth the risk/price?  NFL teams are pretty fluid...you have to have guys waiting in the wings at all positions to stay competitive.

Might have been able to improve that secondary quite a bit with that $13M though.  Or how about the OL?  Or the WR corps?

 

I just don't see the end game of franchising Hardy if he's not in the long-term plans.
