I understand that it was with a different GM, but we hung onto Poole and Armond Smith for a reason. I think if we cut D-will, our backfield looks like Stewart as the starter, Tolbert as the FB and Poole as a backup with Smith on the PS, ready to come up if needed.
If/when we lose DWill we will then see how the powers that be feel about his contributions. If they go with Poole or Smith, you can either feel good that they trust these guys, or if we draft a RB you can feel like they maybe didn't trust either one. Gonna be interesting to see how this all plays out.
Redo DWill and we are a better team. Lose DWill and our offense loses a vital cog. Glad I don't have to make these desicions. Cuz i would do everything I possibly could to keep DWill on this team.
Cutting Gamble pretty much puts us back to even. Redo Gross and the rookies are taken care of. After that you are fee to finalge away. Cut Nakamora and Dwan and you have the 3mil to sign Canty. Redo/cut Beast and you can affor Byrd.
This year, we can upgrade RG and TE through midlevel FA that will be on modest one year deals. So our draft is pretty much a free ride. We can take the Best Playmaker on our board in the first two rounds. Chances are whatever position they play they will start, and we get two playmakers.
It has been a long time, maybe even never, since we have seen an offseason like this one. Perfect storm for Gettlemen. He doesn't have to spend a ton of money, to get that talent he is so known to find.
This team could look vastly different next year. And with every change comes an upgrade.
