What would trading J-Stew do to our cap?

Other than Chris Gamble, Stew could bring in a healthy draft pick, maybe a third round pick. He just signed a decent contract, but he is a young star player, and teams would be willing to pay that contract. My only thing is, will trading him hurt our cap situation?

Prisoner of the moment....

Coaching staff has proved they like Stewart the best for what they want to do.

4 years younger than Williams.

Has played better in this offense overall than Williams.

A month or two ago I woulda thought you were out of your mind, but the truth is that Tolbert is a beast, and Deangelo has looked great with the extra carries the last half of the season.

I really like Stewart, but he is constantly hurt and we really dont need him.

Since RB have a short shelf-life, I would agree that a 3rd would be the best we could do, especially since teams know that we dont need him, they will use that to the favor of their negotiations.

He had 336 rushing yards this season and played in only 9 games. He's not going to have a ton of trade value, Honestly Williams would have more value in a trade at this moment. He ended the season with over a 4 ypc average and over 700 yards rushing with 5 touchdowns. (The same amount of rushing TD's that Stewart has the last two seasons combined)

Which is kinda stupid, since Williams has outplayed Stewart the last two years in this offense by a wide margin. Stewart isn't getting traded though. That's even taking away todays game as well.

Someone will have to be gone in this trio. I don't think Williams will fetch anything decent from a trade, and we have to do something with that contract if we decide to keep him. Stew is the only player who will fetch us something in a trade. I wish we could keep all of them, but the reality is we won't be able to play all three players. All of them need carries, and if we kept all three, they will take carries away from each other.

Someone said yesterday that the way Stew's contract is set up, it would have less of an impact on our cap than releasing D-Will. I don't know if that's true or not, probably not.

Just the fact that Williams has twice as many touchdowns and over 500 more rushing yards and over 200 more total yards over those two years. Also has less fumbles and a higher YPC average as well on just 58 more touches.
