You're right. But, any of the three top rated strong safeties in the draft can be had in the second round. Any of them would be even less expensive than they could ever hope to get Whitner or Troy for. And any of them probably have better coverage skills than either of those veterans right now.
I would much rather have a rookie.
All I'm sayin is that Troy may be an option. If he can be an inexpensive one (and that willl be the reason Whitner leaves) there is no reason not to get a vet there AND a rookie to groom.
Lets be real tho...we don't even know if Troy will be released and we have no idea what he's thinking or what his market will be if that happens. Last year I thought Ed Reed would sign cheap...I was WAY off on that one.
