You guys have to stop playing Madden.
I never played it, do not own it.
You don't know any more than I do. We don't even have a GM.
You are assuming that we want to keep Gross and Gamble. If I can draft a rookie and sign a veteran G and S with the savings, I might let a 33 year old T go. That is not unreasonable. Hurney is no longer here to protect his picks and there will probably be some changes to creates some room to better meet our needs. Since Gross is one of the moves that creates cap room, and because he is old, and because he did not have a great year,
How many games has Ron Edwards played in 2 years? 8? His salary is pretty cheap for what he can do when healthy, but he is 34. We need him, but I am not sure that $2.5 milion for a 34-year old guy averaging about 4 games a year is a bargain. Thinking he is a bargain is more Madden than realism.
Restructuring everyone from a losing team mortgages the future.
You could be right, but that does not mean there was only one realistic option.
