    Assuming we received a 1st round pick for Cruz's tender, the only positive would be having an additional chest piece to trade up for Jadeveon Clowney in the 2014 Draft. He's one of those players who can potentially change the way we look at the game from what he's done in college so far. Having another dominant DE would be worth losing Cruz and having more room to sign other players.

    Doesn't really matter anyway because we all know that Cruz and the FO are going to make this negotiation work. Cruz has family here, media sensationalism, great market deals, etc. Cruz and Randle are the future.

    Cruz deserves to be paid and he's not going anywhere.

    Take a risk of resigning Cru? Or take the risk of going over the cap?
    I thought we had something special!!!

    If we go for WR first round, the problems we are having do not get addressed once again.

    and we may be in a situation where we can get cruz at a discount based on negotiating with him now. put him off for a year and subject him to potentially getting injured and reducing his market value significantly, and the trade off is if we choose to go with cruz we may have to pay alot more for him.

    i'd definitely prefer a healthy nicks to cruz. few wouldn't. but that's not where we find ourselves right now.
    It really is a crap shoot. But at this point, I would put a 1st round tender. Worse comes to worse, we don't match it and we get a 1st round pick (potentially high one) and 8-10 million saved and see what our QB is made of. And I'm pretty confident Eli can do a decent job of it.

    In fact, I plan to start 50 threads about it....but first I want to compare his first season with Randy Moss'
    Oy, I'm begging you........

    Take the risk of losing Cruz. I meant, take the risk of losing cruz and if you do lose him - using that 8-10 million saved elsewhere.

    The review confirms the initial ruling on the board: it was sarcasm.

    Yeah, if Randle continues his rise, I think Nicks is a goner.

    You're not going to get a 1st round pick to match Cruz's productivity or be in synch with Eli. WR is not a problem position for this team and if we waste a # 1 pick on one we once again ignore problems we definitely have on both lines.
