What are the chances we will be able to lock up J-Stew long term? It is likely because we locked up DeAngelo, J-Stew will eventually be playing for another team. (The only way I see these guys staying together is if J-Stew just want to stay here versus being paid as a number one guy) So would any of you be upset if we traded him to get a quality starter at cornerback and some draft picks?

I've wondered the same thing. I feel like at some point Stew is going to want to be the number 1 guy, and seeing how we just gave Williams a huge contract I don't see Stewart and Williams switching roles anytime soon. He has two years left on his contract so I wouldn't even think about it till next year. But if next year comes and he's not happy in the number two spot work out a trade package with someone so we can get some value for him instead of letting him walk in free agency.

But maybe he like being part of double trouble and being a back up and its not something to worry about. Who knows.

It depends. If we got two first round picks and a sandwich to be named later for him, I would be ok with it. :)

I agree, but the only thing about waiting another year is, what if he shows he's injury prone? That would definitely decrease his trading value. Yet people already know how good Jonathan is right now, and his value right now is pretty high. This may be the best time to trade him. Yet he may settle for less money and enjoy being apart of our double trouble package. If he likes that, then we should keep him.

You don't trade your best players. You you just don't. RB's get injured more than any other position, and depth at that position is essential.

I might cry a little considering my dad bought me a J-Stew jersey last Christmas because he thought D-Will wasn't gonna come back this season.

JStew doesn't have the kind of value to bring a starting CB and draft picks,
He's a RB who has foot issues and cant practice as a rule.
Red flag to most GMs. Trading Stew is not the answer.

I just can't support trading him this year. With the uncertainties at QB and WR we need a stable RB corps. With injuries on the o-line comes injuries to our RBs so we need a full stable of backs.

However next year we really do need to figure out something. He'll be in the last year of his contract, and I know he'll have interest from other teams. Can we justify giving two RBs big money contracts. Would Stew even want to stay and remain the number 2 back when he could have the chance to be a starter and pro bowler elsewhere. I love Stew and want him on the team but I'd rather our FO control the situation not the player.

Not if we get a good return for him, no.
