I like everything except two main things AB
1. WR like RB should not be a position where we should spend a lot of money. I DONT agree we should franchise crabs. He is a great hands catcher and catches well in traffic but is not super fast or quick or one in a generation type player (ala Calvin Johnson or Julio Jones). Besides, Kap has sown a knack for making a receiver stand out. Look at Peyton Manning in indy, Tom Brady in NE and Drew Brees in NO. They manage to play with mid round receivers who fit into their scheme and they make them look great. I know just like DBs we will have boat loads of free agent WRs, but we should focus on resigning Anquan who would be a great mentor for future draft picks and less selfish compared to Crabs.
2. I hope i dont get killed for this but i dont think we should extend Iupati. now i love the guy, his pull blocks and how he is a road grader, but he simply sucks as a pass protector. If our aim with Kap is to turn him into an elite passer and make our team a bit less ground and pound, iupati will significantly lose his value. We have already wisely invested significant amount of money on Staley and Davis. Boone should be next to extend as he is a good run/pass blocker and great personality/ teammate who should not cost as much as Iupati and flying under national radar. If we extend iupati, we would be spending close to 20% of our team Cap space on our offensive line alone not counting center and boone!!!!
3. One bonus thought. Next year we will have Nnamdi Asomugha, Terrell Brown, Donte Whitner, Perish Cox, Eric Wright, Tramaine Brock will all be free agents. In addition, Carlos Rodgers will most likely be reduced or cut. That is 7 losses from the defensive backfield!!! We surely will need to extend some and get free agents!!!
