Monsta, do you think we keep both DLo and Stew? Just asking.


I honestly have no idea. It's hard for me to imagine us keeping Williams and trading Stew, and it does us no good financially to trade or cut Williams, so I don't know. Maybe Gettleman will want to cut a bunch of contracts now and take the hit immediately so we can start to rebuild. For the time being though, it seems like we'll have both.

I'm not trying to ridicule you, I simply see no scenario where us getting Revis helps. He is a huge talent, but he has held out for more money on like two or three occassions already. If we traded for him and somehow paid him (A BIG IF), then if he played well he would want to go somewhere after the season where he can get paid. If he plays poorly, we traded god knows what draft pick for him, which also sucks.

I just can't fathom a realistic scenario where we trade for Revis, he plays up to expectations, and then stays here on a reasonable salary afterward. Mind you when he is due an extension, it will be at the same time that Cam will be getting a pay raise from like $5MM/year up to $15MM/year or more. Greg Hardy will also be getting a bump from about $750K to $9-10MM/year. That's a couple of huge contract jumps right there. Granted Gamble would be off the books at that point, and maybe likely Gross too, but I still just don't see it happening.

Let's be realistic here and talk about guys like Antoine Cason, Sean Smith (possibly if not Franchised), DRC, Grimes, Mike Jenkins, McKelvin, etc

Honestly some of those names are unrealistic... Our cap space is fuggin terrible, I don't think we could land DRC, Grimes, or Jenkins because they have too much "name value" and would request more money.
