Its probably 20 to 1. In this context......that's far fetched to me.
Not only would a team have to pay him a huge amount of money, but they would lose a 1 round pick and probably another to us to sign him.
That's why we are holding all (or most) of the cards.
Lifetime member of the "specific element" and proud of it.
lets just throw this situation out there; cruz signs elsewhere, but we gain a 1rst and a 3rd draft pick, and have more room in the cap to get a top notch RT or G/C...then how does everyone feel? from a completely economical stand point, seeing as we got a SB already, and got the production we did for around 1 mil both years (lmao how JR pulled that off is beyond me, talk about lucking out on an UDFA rookie). You sell him high, ie the 1rst and 3rd round pcks, then use one of those spots to address his loss. then u have an additional quality pick and the money u would have spent on him, can now be used on a FA...
its not an easy decision. im with the majority here in wanting him back. but the other scenario isnt exactly terrible.
for instance, suppose the giants FO works out ss12, deem him 100% healthy, get him on a 2 yr deal at 2 mil, how does that hypothetical change our feelings on cruz?
