That is not apples to apples.

You can't measure the value of a CB against the value of a Guard or Center.

Besides, if you do, you have no argument. CB ranks up there with QB and LT as among the most valuable positions.

Guard and Center towards the bottom end.

This is why top CBs make about twice the money as an equivalent Guard or Center.

Besides, it is not an issue of one or the other; you need both. Who, exactly, can the Rams get that is as good as TruJ? A rookie 2nd round draft pick? Please. Might there be a FA CB that fits Phillips' system better? Perhaps, and if so THEN it might make sense to pursue that CB instead of TruJ. But you're going to overpay no matter who you sign in FA.

CBs are expensive. There's no way out. Even above average CBs cost a lot.
Will they keep TruJ? Depends on his contract demands. If he wants JJ money, probably not. If he'll take something like 4 years at $50 million, yes.

dzrams140February 17, 2017 08:36AM

  Your reasoning actually says no.

promomasterj182February 15, 2017 10:46AM

  How'd that work out last year?

Old Goat243February 15, 2017 01:07PM

  How'd it work out with Tru? - not great

promomasterj197February 15, 2017 02:07PM

  He's more than decent c'mon man

LesBaker142February 16, 2017 01:46PM

  I wish we could keep him, but not at franchise number

promomasterj140February 16, 2017 02:40PM

  Wild speculation

AlbaNY_Ram165February 16, 2017 03:38AM
