We have a chance right now to SIGNIFICANTLY upgrade not just any position, but a position where the guy will touch the ball 25+ times a game and directly impact our ability to score points.
Seriously you think we are going to run the ball 25 times a game?
Makes sense to me to have the two highest paid skill players in the NFL on the same team both wanting the ball..
Think about it!
If you are in need of an upgrade you do so with someone that has not been then punching bag of the NFL for the past 6 years.
Why load your cap up with players that will be out of the NFL in two years and mortgaging your future like Mickey did.
You build your team with the draft not aging punching bags.
