good callYou know we wont, we dont cut players, we sign players cut from other teams and call them upgrades.....
i don't think we cut young. he's in the top 10 for DT sacks in the past 2 years. i say resign him
i feel the same as you..wow...the exact sameI was all for letting Young walk, then I thought about it.....if we let him walk, who is gonna be the veteran backup who can start in a pinch? Young isnt a pro bowler but he is a solid player, I say resign him (2yr deal) but still look to get his replacement in free agency (C. Williams) or in the draft.
I also think that Henderson should be resigned (I've always felt that way) so far he has proven that he cannot be depended on to start, but he's also proven to scare the living bejeezus outa defenses with his speed and seperation, he is shifty (when he catches the ball) and able to score from any place on the field (when he catches the ball) I think that would be another smart resigning, because first, it would be cheap (didnt do good at all in his contract year) and secondly, at worst he is a #4 reciever and he plays special teams (kick and punt coverage....somebody has to hawk down Devin Hester on kick coverage) and the way Payton used him, by alternating the #3 and #4 recieving spot, he still brings that deep threat element to the team and what if his replacement isnt able to duplicate that deep threat that Devery has already gotten a name for in this league? we think he isnt important because of his drops, but I sure hate to see us without a true deep threat (whether he catches it or not) Sure Meachem will get his opportunity (4.39 40 time) but doesnt that make our offense more explosive if we had two guys that can get deep like that?
I know, I know, and I agree, his drops were so bad this year, I wanted to crawl under a rock and die for him....but he works hard and will continue to and he is still that element in the passing game that clears out the safetys and beats the Cover 2.
My prob with resigning Henderson is that he couldn't catch 2 passes in a row in a contract year. What should we expect him to do once he's paid???
