its s little extravagant imo but not entirely crazy.

i think where it falls apart is here:

I believe that they have contingency plans for FA acquisitions if they can save that $16.7 million after trading TruJo. Might be a few more tier 2 players for depth, might be for extending Donald or Tree. I suspect that they would prefer to add a few more depth FA's, myself. Then they would be more free to take BPA after the 2 CB's, as well. No other "holes" would remain after these predraft moves.

1. i dont think their is anybody left in fa who you can "trust" as starter. im sure there are some surprises here and there but all of them have question marks at this point. so im not sure what 17 mill in cap space gets you.

2. we still have a huge hole at center.

Appreciate the feedback, PHD.

Yeah, starter material in FA seems unlikely at this point. But I suggested tier 2 types for depth in my post. Injury insurance types before the draft. Such FA's, although non starters, can be very valuable throughout a long season. Crucial depth, even.

And agreed, C is currently a hole. No doubt about it. But it will be addressed whether or not we trade TruJo, right? My guess is that they will both sign a vet FA and use a draft pick. I'd be quite surprised if they don't do both, actually.
