Rather than start another thread, here's a question for the overwhelming majority who think Coach H and Baalke will NOT pay top dollar for a FA #1 WR, nor get a top #2 WR in draft, as the cost is too high.
Do you think B&H WILL get a #1 WR via FA and a #2WR via draft by trading up IF, IF we could do so by spending say only $4 mil more/yr on #1WR and trade up for one of our guys(craps) going in trade elsewhere? Here's the idea. Trading craps saves $4.25 mil/yr(or thereabout) and that would allow us to get an $8 or $9 mil/yr FA WR for net incr of $4.5 mil/yr, not an exorbinant amt of money for a #1 WR. By trading craps we could then move up the board to get a legitimate #2WR, and then Morgan becomes #3(vs competition from a bunch of UDFA or late rd WRs). So trading our current #1 and his salary, who has played like a #4 , would allow us to get a FA #1 WR and also then trade up for a legitimate #2 WR. To round things out kyle could be a # 4, and ginn a #5, knowing that in the late rds or UDFAs, Coach H and Baalke may very well find us a better #3 than morgan and /or a better #4 than kyle...and for not much money. Ques isn't do you like the idea, but do you think B& H would do that?
For the large majority of you who think the two acquisitions are too expensive, here is a way to do it for a net incr of $4.5mil/yr. Yes, we will have to pay more $$ for the #2WR but we would have spent that money on someone anyway. It would mean trading craps, but could be a workable solution to affording a #1 and #2 WR, which we bascially just have to have if we want to win it all next yr.
