I was leaning towards keeping Crabtree over Iupati, but now I think I would prefer to let Crabtree walk. Iupati has been very durable, and if our OL can give our WR more time to get open (and less double-coverage) then average WR can be effective for us. I think there is a slight chance that we don't sign Aldon if we believe Lemonier can be his replacement. That would be a tough decision to make, though.
Why would we let Aldon walk when we can just trade Brooks 7mil salary for a 4th round pick or something? Brooks base salary is only guaranteed if he's injured so if your cutting somebody you should turn one into the other. Also I love Iupati but you don't chose a guard over 1000yard receiver who gets more YAC than Pablo Escobar. You just don't invest that much money in your Oline. It's not sustainable. Plus Boone should see a big money extention soon and he can play tackle.
