Don't pull that madden poo on me. And yes Beason, Kalil, Stewart, Smitty and Kasay should retire here. Kalil is one of the best centers in the game. Johnson is the only viable DE we have and he is crucial. Despite everyones optimism about our DE's it could still be some time until another starter is found, whether we find it Brown, Hardy, or someone else.
Smitty should absolutely retire here. He's carried this offense on his back for the better part of the decade and only now do fans turn on him, degrade his talent, and blame him for poo that is not his fault and is out of his control.
Out of all the teams in the league we've had some of the more recognizable stars per team. Gross, Otah, Smith, Deangelo, Stewart, Beason, Peppers, Gamble, Kalil, Kemo, even TD. There is a reason our team has still been competitive despite our poo QB play/offensive playing and these guys are it.
Kalil and Johnson are guys that can be good for a very very long time. You build your team around them. Beason needs to be locked up too. Obviously we can't be expected to keep everyone but we can keep the guys we need with smart management, Deangelo is only guy I see us having a hard time keeping. It's also a question if he's worth keeping at this point. TD, Anderson, Kalil, and Johnson can definitely be put under contract.
TD might be the weak link here. Anderson so far has made him expendable, and recovering from 1 ACL tear is a miracle on its own, but 2?
Resigning TD to anything more than a vet minimal would be a bad move by this team.
Deangelo is must keep for this team, I love J-stew as much as the next man, but D-Will has hardly even reached his talent peak here. Although with Goodie's emergence as a pretty damn good RB has made D-Lo somewhat expendable. I can agree on that.
