The front office is making shrewd moves with an eye on the future (re-signing and extending our stars), and, with the exception of Goldson, we aren't losing anyone we can't replace more or less immediately. And we have 15 draft picks with which to do so!
The acquisitions we're looking at (Naamdi, Woodson) are short-term, hole-plugging moves for experienced veterans who want to play for a contender, and they won't have a high cap impact.
The overlooked upside to adding Boldin, Woodson/Naamdi to replace our departed FAs is they don't count in the calculation of compensatory picks since they were cut by their teams. Result: we'll receive multiple picks next year, with the Goldson pick likely a 3rd rounder. If Dorsey cancels one of Soap/RJF we might get another 4th or 5th and probably another in that range for Walker. We will have double-digit picks again next year. We are the anti-Raiders.
By the way the Smith deal was mind-boggling great. Other teams are begging for our leftovers.
This is how great franchises are run; this is how the rich stay rich. The Patriots have been the best at it for a long time, but its our turn now. Sit back and enjoy the awesome
