In the next few years...
Rogers, Whitner, Manningham, Goodwin, Haralson, (maybe even J Smith and Gore) will be off the payroll. We already have Alex, Goldson, Soap, RJF, Walker, Moss off the payroll. They'll mostly be replaced with draft picks.
That should give us barely enough to sign Kap (20 mil), A Davis (7 mil), Iupati (7 mil), Crabtree (12 mil), Aldon (15 mil). That's 61 million in five players, but they are the core players that we need to build around.
Even if we need to let Vernon walk to keep Crabtree, I think that is our better option.
