Why do people think Cruz is easily replaceable?

    Webster, Tuck and Diehl come off the books next year, there could be a bit more room to move.

      Right but Cruz was not enough in 011. We need more positive production.

        Not really. We have to give a contract to Beatty, Cruz, Bennett, S. Brown, A. Brown, and KP this offseason. Between contracts coming off and new ones coming on, it's probably a wash at best.

          Nah, the NFL is incredibly successful. They love that different teams can win every year, and that all the teams spend the same dough. It's what makes it so much better than baseball.

            Nah I meant more money for Nicks. Rolle, Canty, Bradshaw and Snee's contracts will lapse just in time to sign JPP and Prince to long-term deals... Provided a big-name free agent isn't brought in, this cap mess could come right before long.

                You reckon Phillips returns? Hopefully his injury history has lowered his market value somewhat. Bennett, I'm not positive they can retain, either. Teams which actually utilise the position through the air could value him very highly.

                    I'm just listing players that very well could command decent contracts from us. Unfortunately, I too have a bad feeling that they'll let KP walk. Sucks, because he's an excellent player when healthy and definitely allows us to do A LOT more on defense when he's not in the line up.

                    Bennett is also an excellent blocker, which makes him extremely valuable to us, too. Combine that with the dearth of depth we have currently (Pascoe and Robinson) and I'd say that it's very likely we will make every effort to re-sign him. I'd be fine with him getting a contract that averages $3m-$4.5m/yr, he's like having an offensive lineman that can also be a dangerous receiver.

                      No. Nor has Cruz undergone microfracture surgery on his knee. So, there's that, too.

                        He made a record ten catches in the Pro Bowl from 3 different QBs. That would indicate he's not a product of the system

                          Well, it isn't like they really play tight defense. But, still, it's an impresive feat.

                            I guess it's more like he doesn't NEED Eli to be successful but I prefer he play with Eli for several years to come
