    I can turn it around though and say would you rather take that risk and then using that 8 million elsewhere? Like a stud LT? Personally, I think I would. We all know that it won't matter who we have at WR as much if Eli isn't upright.

    And I don't get those who say Cruz is not worth it. This guy is the next generation Wes Welker, with a little more explosion. And he's coming into his prime. Of course he's gonna get paid.

    agree with u rudy, rf, nygisballing, and shakenbake.

    i get the feeling that the consensus is we gotta re-sign him, even if its at market price. its tough. but i certainly see and agree with the perspective that a healthy cruz, nicks, and randle will be LETHAL, especially with a Hixon and even a JJ as understudies.

    They won't release Jernigan while he's still working on his rookie contract, but Barden has to go.

    Yeah you have to remember this is a guy who we picked up as a UFA, and to replace him we would need to burn a high round draft pick or pickup someone in FA, and even then its not a guarantee that we will get the same type of production.

    now maybe some of you will see the problem with all the restructuring and bloated contracts hitting us now.
    Agreed. He is a top WR. Not elite though.

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

    If we go for WR first round, the problems we are having do not get addressed once again.
    I agree. We may not see dividends immediately, since it cometimes takes some time for WRs to get up to speed, but it will pay off in a couple years. We have the 8-10 million elsewhere to use. Everyone is clamoring over the OLine. Why not a stud LT? If all of a sudden Eli has more time to throw, will it offset the loss of Cruz? Keep in mind that we'll have Nicks for at least one more year. So it's not like we'll have 2 green WRs running around out there.

    But again, Nicks healthy is a big questionmark.
