Its a risk. Its all about evaluation of risk here. What surprises me from that Trevor article is that he hasnt had much if any contact with the organization himself. If that is true, this is very surprising, i would think the team would want its doctors throughout the offseason, even well before offseason workouts in early april, to poke and prod at him and put him through drills from Jan to March to monitor his leg explosion for themselves..perhaps on a weekly basis or something. This would have given us alot more knowledge about his true state of affairs. If it was looking good, it would probably make sense to keep him and not trade him away even with that number. If it was going poorly, i still would expect a deal to be done by now because Denver could keep lowering its asking price so long as they got something. I think if we had asked for something like a 6th or 5th we would have gotten a deal done by now. Or in the alternative, if it looked bad, they could have cut him outright from the word go so they would have that cap flexibility UP FRONT at the start of FA without the worry that he is going to bite us in the ass. That is what they should have done, if what Trevor is saying is to be believed, they should have done intensive monitoring from Jan to March.
