2 of them are now on the Panthers...time to trade for Jalen Ramsey, too? 😅

At this rate we may end up with Sunshine in a couple of years. Might want to keep an eye on these young players being thrown to the wolves around the league.  Rhule and Fitterererrr's not afraid to try out reclamation projects.

You would rather have a 33 year old Richard Sherman than the 9th pick in last years draft?  Most CBs notoriously take a while to develop, and scheme is a massive issue.  He seems to be a much better man CB than zone.  Which happens to be exactly what we run here. 

CBs do usually take time to develop, which is where a veteran is helpful for a team that is honestly competing now.   But I also trust the coaches to coach young guys up.

This is a gamble that could solidify the defensive backfield for half a decade, and it's a gamble with relatively little risk.

even if it doesn't quite pan out and CJ Henderson tops out as an average type CB, this is the kind of trade that can build a defense that can withstand losses to injury and whatnot.

took advantage of a team in a tough spot with their young player, and got a cornerback who has started every game he's played in two years, with supreme physical traits, and to do that cashed in a bit of draft pick capital, and a player at a position of surplus coming out of camp.

that's very very solid asset management.

Arnold and CMC were both good on 3rd downs, Someone will need to step up. FWIW, Marshall has been improving steadily, and Tremble finally came to life last week in a big way.

Chubba has dropped too many.  Hope he's carrying around the jug machine with him everywhere he goes.

I think we are going to see an offense like we saw last year without CMC since Davis wasn't the best receiver either.

“There was word this summer about the Saints showing interest in a deal for Henderson, but nothing came of those discussions. Things went further with the Panthers and Henderson is now set to move to the NFC South for the rest of his second NFL season.“

We got Horn when the Saints were trying to trade up for him, and got CJ who they were attempting to trade for this offseason as well. Word was that the Jags wouldn’t take less than a 2nd round pick at the time 

Anything that gets one over the Saints is an automatic win for me. Fug Sean Payton, fug Micky Loomis, and fug the entire Saints organization. 

 

Beat them to the punch with TMJ in in draft

Beat the ever loving poo out of them on the field

and now we beat them to the punch with Henderson.

You also got to take into account the talent he was playing around though.

I did and took into account he and his coach don't see eye-to-eye.  I'm just pumping the breaks a little bit, that's all.  Initially I got got up in an early in-season trade (SUPER rare for us) but then I started to dig a little bit and understand while this guy obviously has potential, he hasn't come close to utilizing it for whatever reason.

Sunshine? Is this an inside joke that went over my head?
