Trading hardy would be the single dumbest thing we could possibly do. The strength of this team is the d line and we are going to trade a 25 year d stud who led the team in sacks. Not only that but we are going go replace him with Mario Addison or frank Alexander.

Gettleman constantly talks about the trenches. The o line and d line. So why would we possibly mess with that? Yes mike Mitchell had a very good year last year and I want him back, but would he have been exposed more if our d line wasn't so dominating? We want to trade hardy and then take that money to brink back Mitchell and captain who proved just how good they were when we got no pressure on the QB for them in the playoffs. I will Take my chances with Hardy 100 out of 100 times and fortunately it looks like Gettleman agrees.

 

 

Gettleman has no offensive line at all. Not addressing the OL with serious intentions would be the single dumbest thing.

Trading hardy isn't even an option anymore. How do y'all not know that by now? He either signs a long term deal relieving us of about 3 mill $ in cap space or plays under the entire 13 mill $ tag & then next offseason we go thru all of this again

obviously trade for the cap space and picks

 

but that's like listing "flap my arms and fly there" as an option for getting to toronto

Draft geeks wanting more picks for their mock drafts...wtf

Anywhoo...Hardy would go #1 in this year's draft if he were being drafted this year, knowing what we know. Not only that but he was touted as the best FA going into the offseason, ranked above real MFL players who have actually been in the league!!!

Who is this all-pro defensive end monster that's coming after Cam this year that's on our schedule?

Which one of these stud LTs, coming out of the draft, are going to be shutting down all these monster DE's that are coming after Cam?

This site must be made up of redskin and Atlanta fans wishing we would trade our monster all-pro de so he doesn't go after their poor-wittle quatah-bayux

Who said anything about not addressing the o line? Kalil quite possibly is the best C in the league plus the team is very high on Amini and Chandler. They also like Chris Scott and obviously are intrigued with Kugs since they drafted him in the third round. They need help at both tackles. We still have all of free agency and the draft to figure it out.

Charles Johnson and Greg Olsen both have contracts that can be restructured. They are working to lower Hardys cap hit for this year. It is pretty obvious Steve Smith will be cut or take a pay cut. They could still free money by cutting Godfrey, DeAngelo, Dwan

Edwards, Pilares, Norman and josh Thomas.

With Cams mobility an our power rushing attack finally healthy, we don't need to sacrifice our biggest strength (front 7 on the defense,) for band-aid, stop-gap players or rookies on the offensive line.

We've got sizeable and young linemen hungry for starting positions and the pay that will come along with it. They're already with the system and on The payroll. How do y'all know they can't start? You don't!!!

Why are they on the team if they can't play? You tellin me that we only have two starter-worthy players on the OL? BS

Here are the OLinemen on our roster

Byron Bell | Tackle

Age / DOB: (25) / 1/17/1989

Ht / Wt: 6'5' / 340

Travis Bond | Guard

Age / DOB: (23) / 12/10/1990

Ht / Wt: 6'7' / 330

Jeff Byers | Guard

Age / DOB: (28) / 9/7/1985

Ht / Wt: 6'4' / 310

Nate Chandler | Guard

Age / DOB: (24) / 6/1/1989

Ht / Wt: 6'4' / 310

Derek Dennis | Guard

Age / DOB: (25) / 7/16/1988

Ht / Wt: 6'3' / 315

Brian Folkerts | Center

Age / DOB: (24) / 1/30/1990

Ht / Wt: 6'4' / 305

Oscar Johnson | Guard

Age / DOB: (24) / 3/1/1990

Successful teams don't overpay players. They know when to replenish/replace. Hardy making $13.1 million is overpaying. That 12-4 last year was a huge surprise. In reality we are still treading water trying to get out of Hurney-hell. We should be stockpiling picks and getting our cap straight right now. This contract is going to force Godfrey back into the line up and we are hoping to protect our franchise QB with scraps or unproven talent and maybe an aging journeyman tackle

13 mil for a top-5 DE is not overpaying.

Trading Greg Hardy could net two 1st round picks for the Panthers.  No one can tell me that's not worth at least considering.  Hardy is good but being able to have the cap space he's taking up AND that compensation in return?  I'd take it, use the cap space to re-sign guys like Mitchell and Ginn, draft a DE with one of your 1st's and still have some money to get a LT or WR in FA.  WIN.

But we have two making top dollar. Look I get the "keep strengths strong" argument. But we have a lot of holes to fill.
