We lose Houston, our best young player. But If he is for real about holding out until week 10 we have to deal him. Hopefully that doesn’t lose us leverage with potential teams looking for a young pass rusher. If we can gain a pick in the top of this draft, and one next year obviously unknown where.

With the cap position we are in, I feel like this year it will be very difficult to make any major changes. Moving forward, even though we will have a lot of cap room, we will also need to resign some key players who will likely be asking for a big chunk of money (Poe and Berry?), so I don’t see our overall cap situation improving significantly.

The question is whether Dorsey sees this roster as one that is a few draft picks away from being contenders, or if it is full of overpaid players. He has had two seasons to Read more…
