I think so too.
Next year we will have AQ and Stevie J under contract.
The year after we will have Stevie J and Patton/Ellington.
This. Your 2015 scenario may be realistic but there is simply no way that we go into 2016 with Stevie, Patton, and Ellington as our top 3. We may let Crabtree walk but you bet your a** that if we do, we push for another great WR on FA/trade or fully commit to a TBD prospect in the draft to the long term answer.
It is incredibly telling that we gave a Kilgore a modest extension and drafted the near consensus best center of the draft that can also play Guard, and drafted one of the top 5 Guard prospects from the same class that will be redshirted for recovery.
Sure seems like they are banking more on either 1 of Boone or Iupati leaving for more money. I expect them to fill the trenches via the draft and keep in-house talent at skill positions because of already existing and improving chemistry and bring into quality veterans that can step in simply based off of their skill (Moss, Boldin, Johnson).
