We will be fine if Cruz is gone. How quickly many of you forget lessons of the past.
If cruz is gone we will still have Nicks, Randle, Hixon, Barden, Jernigan....Bennett. C'mon guys.
Players will step up and some player we dont even know of will catch our eye once again.
AKA: If cruz wants 10 mil/year...to hell with him
Eli: "You actually caught a pass!"
I'd rather lose Eli than Cruz.
it would suck but it is part of the game/business.
Don't over pay him. Wouldn't want to lose him but if he wants to much let him walk. Same goes for Nicks when his turn is up. Just draft well.
I know it will come down to $. I think we have a bit more depth on offensive skill positions. If he wants too much, he's gone. The money will be used for other areas more in need of upgrading. It would be sad though.
