Trade extra 3rd and 5th for picks a round higher the next year. We don't need all the picks with our depth and having a first, 2 seconds, 2 fourths the following year would set us up for more impact players rather than depth that could potentially not make the team.
Definitely like the 2nd option if we can get a team to bite. We did it one year with Indy for the 42nd pick and ended up with the 29th pick which was nice because we had given that 1st away to get Staley the year before. (although we wasted it with balmer) The other one was the Panthers who took Everette Brown and we got 17 which we took Mike Iupati with. It sucks waiting a year but if you can get a team desperate enough to give a round higher the next year it's worth it. Especially if that team is expected to do bad and you can select high in the round. We have a golden opportunity with a 1, 2, 3, 3, 4, 5, 5, 6, 6, 7, 7 to really do damage and reload for the future to keep hopefully what is going to become a dynasty going.
As for the 1st option whether it's for a FS if Goldson isn't resigned or for say a WR we would have to hit if we give up a 1st, 2nd, 3rd and maybe another 3rd. I don't necessarily like that option but if we go that way we damn well better hit and get someone who can instantly contribute and put us over the top. If not it kills us because we could have 3-4 good players with that. 1, 2, 3 (and maybe another 3) is a heck of a lot of depth and maybe a starter or 2 for the future. Hard to pass that up for one player IMO.
