Eli's not quite done yet, it's the offensive line and I believe they can fix it. Sorry but I wouldn't trade him but I would start looking for his successor if I had the opportunity. If they continue to play poorly this yr, let's say 2 more weeks I would probably sit Eli and let Nassib play to see what kind of value he has. I don't want nobody thinking I don't realize it's the offensive line more than it's on Eli. My posts gets ignored in this thread because my Bulls smack around the lil Knicks...it's ok I understand. Lol
If the giants traded Eli right now it would clear 6.5 mil in cap space. But they would have 15 mil in dead money (that's accounted for under the cap either way right now)
Next season it would clear 13.5 mil with 7 mil in dead money
And then 2015 it would clear 17.5 mil with 2.25 mil dead money
They can accelerate the dead money to hit earlier seasons if they so choose
I think one team would see ELI like some of the fans on this thread would and would cave into a 1st rd selection. A team like the Jaguars for instance? All of a sudden they have ELi throwing Blackmon and Shorts and Mercedes Lewis the ball and they got a top 5pick and a top 5 LT in Joeckl all ready on board. It would probably give life to MJD as well, weather he stayed or not, would be diffrent story. Point is, the upside for a franchise like Jax is worth at least a 2nd rd pick, which would basically be a end of 1st rder..
