What do you think we could get for Rogers and or Whitner (If anyone) in a trade? Was thinking *maybe* we could find some team that is desperate for db's? Was trying to think of ways we could part ways with them without loosing money, a 6th or a 7th round pick?
Hmmm, my best guess is that we'll keep Whitner if we don't sign a veteran FA such as Woodson. If we do sign a Woodson, expect Culliver or a top draft pick playing next to him this year. If we cut Whitner, we save $4,100,000 which is significant. I'm not sure how the trade market works at this juncture but yeah, I can't imagine gaining more than a 6th for him as we'd most likely cut him outright anyway. Unfortunately, Rogers has to stay unless we could find a decent trading partner, as we'd only save $1,110,937 this year but acquire a lot in dead money. It might be best to start a Brown & Nnamdi or Nnamdi & Culliver (if they want to get bigger and more physical) and use Rogers/Brown in the slots. Either way, Whitner/Rogers, if still with the team in the summer, are going to have to earn it this year...they should have MUCH more OPEN competition. At the end of the day, I'm still expecting a very different secondary.
