Locking up our own players is obviously priority number one. Will probably start to hear some rumblings about Manny Lawson getting extended. If Alex performs the way we're all hoping he does He'll quickly become the top priority. I was really worried coming into this season with Willis and Davis both needing immediate extensions, but now that we got them locked up I feel a lot better, knowing that we won't have to use our franchise tag on either of them gives us a lot more flexibility.
I don't think extending Alex will be hard, he's the type of guy that would take a hometown discount to ensure that the team can hold onto talent.
Alex won't be hard at all. Now the question is who do we franchise? I say we have to go with Goldson. RJF should be able to start next year and I don't think we have an answer yet for Goldson's spot.
