You dont know the price tag, they may want either a 1st, or multiple 2nd's, 3rds, etc.... A 1 is not worth it. He is 1 hit away from 1yr suspension. No guarantee he makes a difference, and we win the 6th.
Blackmon wont happen, his deal is guaranteed, and they would need to pay him top 10 money after 2015. Pay Crabs or Blackmon top 10 money, your choice.
And Boldin will be back, he well worth the $6M salary he is making, he is making plays, while all other WRs suck. Why do people think we wont retain Boldin, and why does everyone think we can simply trade for a WR. You need 2 to tango. Gordon or Nicks will cost a lot, and then a contract extension. Both are basically rentals. If Gordon is here, and screws up mid season, he is gone. Nicks is a FA after 2013, he leaves for the money. Boldin is better. Just stick with what we have, and wait for Mario, and Crabs to return. It's the only thing that makes sense. The FO wont be foolish to give into demands of fans, and other teams. I am 110% sure, no one knows a damn thing about what value a player is worth other than Baalke and the FO. We are all wannabe GMs, with no real knowledge.
Great post. I cant understand why some fans cant see the big picture, and always want the newest name on the market. Yes, I'm big on Gordon, but no more than a 3rd, and the Browns wont go for that. Blackmon, thats funny. No way we would give what they are asking. This isnt the old Redskins, we retain our own. We dont deal for other teams players, we dont overspend in FA, maybe the fans dream about some big name here, but they dont understand we cant just turn the cap off.
BTW, you, Gore21, and NCcommand are the closest we have to a real GM around here, thanks to all of you for trying, I do say trying, to keep everything sane around here when it comes to drafts and roster moves.
Kinda blushing, lol. I try to act like a GM, well Marathe style. Cap way. Make sure the cap is in order before we make a move. Need cap space to sign players after all.
Gore_21 is a good guy, knows the roster inside and out. And NCommand, I use to go at it with him, he is a good guy. Smart too. He is calm and cautious like me.
On topic, I just dont see Blackmon, he has too much guaranteed money left, we tried to get away when we traded Jenkins away. No way we take on a fully guaranteed deal, plus he has a 1yr option in 2016 for top 10 money. He is also a idiot at times.
Gordon has talent, but was NOTHING till he came on this year. He showed stuff in 2012, but he has issues. Off the field are the worse. I know some say, well if we get him we win #6, and he gets suspended, it's worth it, well it isnt, especially if we end up not winning 6th, and end up middle of whatever round pick(s) we give up. Then we are screwed, cause he is a headcase.
I said this in another thread, off topic, those 5th yr options are tough. Aldon has one, not sure if picked up, but if not, I would decline, he hasn't proven off the field he is a Top 10 Money OLB, on field, sure. But off the field, he needs cleaning up. I hope he comes back this year, cause we need to exercise it or decline by march 2014, when new league year begins.
Obviously, Reid right now will get his option picked up in 2017, but an extension will be in order. You know me, keeping track of cap numbers, and looking towards the future. And my draft website,
