Ab83rules, Goodwin has only 1 year left on his contract after this season and I'd like to keep him. I think keeping the line together is of upmost importance. We draft a center in the 2013 draft and let him learn the sytem and develop for 1 year before taking over for Goodwin. I think we can get Goldson franchised/resigned,Soap or RJF resigned,Gooden,Brock,McBath,and our draft picks almost all by done by releasing Alex Smith,Haralson and Akers.
That's very doable. We would need to extend Goodwin 2 more years and lower his salary and save some room. He is a good Center. And let Kilgore play behind him more.
I would want this to happen.
We could easily have 28M to spend with Alex, Haralson and Akers cuts, Whitner and Justin Smith extensions, and Goodwin extension
Extend to get more cap room J.Smith and Whitner.
Goldson retained(Extension or Tagged)
RJF or Sopoaga Re-Signed
Brock and McBath on 1 yr 630k deals
Gooden on 2 yr deal
Draft depth on DL
3rd OLB Drafted
Backup OT Drafted
And if anything left over extend Iupati. Maybe Mario gets extension too, lower salary, get Brown done too. So all we worry about are A.,Davis, Crabs, KAep, Aldon, Cully, Hunter, and Miller I believe.
Assuming Kaep starts, Aldon and Kaep will each require 10 million + contracts. That is a big underestimate. I think it would be better to get their deals done sooner rather than later before their stock goes over the moon. Right now their stock is high, but its climbing fast. If we sign them this off season, we might get away with paying them only around 10 million each, which would be a bargain. But that would be around 20 million for both of them. We would still have to wave Rogers and Goldson if we want to keep core players like A. Davis and Iupati, Hunter, Crabtree, Manningham, Miller, Soap, RJF, Brown and Culliver.
People are all excited right now, understandably, but the reality is no matter how clever our front office is, we can't keep EVERYBODY. We have to let some go. I would rather let Rogers and Goldson go than lose a bunch of O-line, WR's, DL and CB's.
Goldson is just the odd man out. He is slightly overrated, but more importantly, he has already proven that he is looking for the huge payday. Rogers is a good player, but as the Eagles have proven, CB's are overrated in the modern NFL.
