We don't need cheaper, we still have needs along the d-line, we don't have a starting FS, our future at RB is a little mucked because of injury, we will probably need to develop a WR from this years draft, we don't have a kicker, and we need special teams help. Those needs are far more pressing than replacing Whitner this season. You say those 4 vets are better than Whitner when our d-line wasn't getting consistent pressure but you fix the dline, you fix the problem. Actually, you fix the d-line you fix multiple problems. Releasing Whitner now just creates another hole in the defense that would have to be filled, thus creating another problem.
