How different is that from the big cap space the Eagles and Redskins are devoting for just 1 year from those receivers they signed? Right now I'd rather have the cap space than the 3rd round pick. I comes down to what value you place on a starting WR for 1 year.
    IMO I'd only trade a 2018 3rd round pick for Matthews if we could get a deal in place. A 3rd rounder for a one year rental seems too high for me... Bc

    Odds are a few of them will be cut. Maybe all of them.

    If Jets didn't lose Smith Decker would be the guy getting axed possibly but they absolutely need him now.

    The Patriots gave up a 1st round pick for Cooks. He has 1 year left and then a 5th option at $8.5 million. The price tag of a 3rd for Matthews for 1 year signed is right in line. You then have a whole year to get a deal done

    Decker absolutely would be awesome, but I doubt Jets are going to let him go.

    Still highly interested in Matthews.

    Man I remember so many of us wanted DGB (although most of us knew there was no shot we'd draft him due to his domestic issues), but man, he's apparently been an enormous disappointment. He should be out there kicking ass with his measurables.
    Although Walsh's system of offense can compensate for lack of talent; however, defense is a different story. According to Walsh, talent on defense was essential and could not be compensated for. What did Walsh do in 1981? He acquired physical and talented players on defense.

    If I'm Ozzie and Harbaugh I wouldn't be too worried about a 2018 3rd pick. If they don't win this year the chances are they won't be here to spend it. They need to take care of 2017 to get to 2018

    I think Ozzie is still very safe here.

    Harbs, not so much.

    I honestly keep forgetting that Kelly was even there lol.
    I'm sure PHI fans don't.

    Different WRs for sure, but from what I know/have seen, I'd like Matthews on a market deal more than I would have liked Torrey on a market deal (would have hated it, actually).

    You can Day3/UDFA your way to a fast cat that track the ball well (no need to pay market-rate for that), but assuming that a hypothetical Matthews would stay at the big-slot in 2018, we need that presence in the curl zones, and down the seams. Our TEs certainly aren't getting it done.

    Cooks was a 1st round draft choice (Saints - 2014) and has a 5th year option :
    http://www.espn.com/nfl/player/stats.../brandin-cooks
    So the Patriots actually can be guaranteed (if they exercise the 5th year option) two years for their Super Bowl championship team. The Ravens IMO have to look to the future, and a 2018 for Matthews would be too much without the guarantee of additional future years of service... Bc

    The question that I'm wondering is what are we looking for in a WR? We already have 3 guys that can take the top off so I'm guessing we are looking for guy that can work the slot. Camp is that guy but his health is a big question mark so I'm wondering who else out there fits this mold.
