Do we even have a giveaway yet? We're playing really good team football. This is a complete team. Once we get a running game going we can really take control, we lost ToP but still were in control most of the way. The only points we gave up were on an extremely short field to an explosive Lions offense.
I think Mitchell could get a two year, $4.5 million type of contract and Ginn could take a one year one mill. What's concreting though is that I feel like we could get Mitchell for less or way way more, it all depends on how other teams see him. In my eyes, he's a top ten safety already and has been the best we've had in a long time. It would be nice to see him with us for a long time.
The Kraken might not be here next season. If he wants a 10 mill figure he'll have to go elsewhere. We still have Cam to lock up and we have enough depth at DE... Little known is Greg might not even get double digit sacks this season, and although he gets pressure even without all the sacks we can get the same production out of Wes and Addison. Plus, Alexander can fill in nicely. The extra cash could be used to obtain a quality right guard and a right tackle, and it wouldn't hurt to get a starting corner.
It was either him, Pilaris, Joe Adams, or Armanti.
I think it's safe to say Hixon is better than anyone of those guys, and it's arguable if any of the three cut would have even caught a pass yet.
Seriously, Tolbert catches more passes than our third receiver some games. With so many pass catchers everywhere he won't have much of an opportunity. It'd be nice to involve him a little more, but he's clearly on the roster as a solid backup. Ginn can't be on the field enough, anyway, and same goes for Lafell and Smitty. We're fine there.
