Its one or the other man. No way we can afford both of them for long and all our young core.
I have no idea where our cap is at the moment (keeping in line just incase we have a cap in 1 or 2 years), I'd have to see the numbers before I believed it wasn't possible...
we need a #1 receiver and a DT.. Those are 2 positions where we are going to have to pay regardless, whether its now or in 5 years... now tell me, would you rather wait 5 years to shore up those 2 important positions? and wait until we perhaps get lucky and draft a SOLID #1 WR and a pro bowl DT?
because right now there are 2 FA's we realistically have a CHANCE at getting here.. being tight in the wallet for a QB, RB, OLine, CB, or FB would make sense to me and I would agree with you at those positions. We are good at those positions..
I think I would take more than 5 minutes to consider the real possibility of getting 2 positions filled that we have been dying to fill for years now..
because as you said, we need to get our young core signed.. and I agree. but to not consider shoring up our young core with a #1 WR and a pro bowl DT wouldn't make a whole lot of sense to me..
matter of fact, it frustrates me since for 5+ years we have needed a solid #2 WR. and for 3+ years we have needed an extremely solid DT.
Both of which we never had a replacement before letting the starter go.
right now, there is a solution, yet again.. are we going to Bolden this situation again? (like we have done for years, or make a change that puts us over the top for once)
