I want him to stay. He's good, crazy, and has an attitude that defenses cant have enough of. But… I just don't know how we can plan to pay him, Cam, and Luke in the future, and still have to fill like 20 spots? What I'm getting at is this. Getty loves "hog maulies" and I figure him to go after O-line early in the draft. By not signing hardy would we have enough cap to sign the likes of a Eric Decker if he was to hit the market? What kind of money would he cost? Couldn't be as bad as Hardy… I haven't seen much said about Decker. Its just so hard to get it right with WR in the draft.

Decker probably stays in Denver as long as Peyton is there.

If I'm correct, right now we have around 15 mil in cap space.

 

By making Dwill and Godfrey "June 1" cuts, that would free another additional 5-6 mil bumping us to 21mil. Some guys will be retained, but hopefully others will too restructure their contracts: Stewart, CJ, Olsen, Smitty, Kalil, and TD.

 

We should be able to make at least 1 or 2 bold moves, but Im not a fan of Eric Decker. I just dont see Decker having that kind of impact he is having in Denver here in Carolina. I'd rather go Nicks or probably a cheaper mover "Golden Tate".

I can see Decker leaving Denver if offered a ridiculous contract. I don't believe he's worth a huge contract. If Hardy walks, I would like to see Gettleman throw his hat in the ring for someone like Justin Tuck. The connection is there. Wouldn't mind taking a shot at Tillman and Nicks/Maclin assuming it wouldn't require a big contract to sign. We need the cap but we need to stay revelant also.

if hardy walks, what you have to do is look at whatever contract numbers he gets from his new team and compare that to what we do with that money saved.

 

people are all concerned about making sure that we get something for hardy...well...cap space is something. if it helps lock up guys like cam and keek down the road and also allow us to bring in more talent in key areas without seeing a significant drop off in defense but seeing improvement on offense, then it was a good decision.

 

i like hardy, but as good as he is and as dominant a personality as he has, he's not worth sacrificing talent in other areas.

 

if we didn't have stewart's contract hanging over our heads and if CJ hadn't been given the monstrous contract he was (which i think was probably overkill), and of course weren't still dealing with leftover crappy cap stuff thanks to hurndog, we might not be in this situation.

 

but we are.

 

i hope we can work it out for him to stay, but i have to have faith in gettleman that he will make this team stronger in spite of losing hardy if that happens.

What about cap rollover from this season? Couldn't that give us closer to $25 mil in cap space?

i think if hardy walks we will be fine..CJ is the guy we cant afford to lose. we have some backup ends that I think could at least be good enough for 8-12 sacks combined then we could make a run at eric decker.

have to keep in mind that extra space we have right now isn't all up for grabs in the FA market and signing our own guys.  Contracts already given out are going to escalate eating up that cap space as well.

No Decker. He is a product of Peyton. I do like Hakeem Nicks and/or Mario Manningham. I also am a fan of D-Will and would like to retain him and pray he takes a pay cut...
