Like this year, next year we may not need many picks bc our team will be set for starters. So we may trade up a few times to get better picks and rid ourselves of some fifth sixth and seventh round choices and we can always trade away some of next years picks for 2014. There is no way even 8 or 9 of the 13 picks next year will make our team, maybe some on the practice squad.
Depends on how much the cap increases. His (Soap) contract wasn't for that much to begin with,
2/26/2008: Signed a five-year, $20 million contract. The deal includes $4.775 million guaranteed.
Considering he has always been a 9er I'm sure he wants to retire one. He will be 31 in the early part of the season so he wont play past his new contract. We can give him a 4 year deal with an option for a 5th and keep the numbers reasonable. For all of these older vets their best chance for a ring is to stay put. If anybody walks in will be RJF, he will want to start elsewhere, his market value will be interesting to see.
