    You think they will cut a guy that almost played 100% of the defensive snaps this year? Not a chance.

    I think they use the 50 million to bolster the line (two veterans 6-8 mil each), sign a good receiver(8-12 mil), and a couple fillers on defense(3-5 mil players), maybe a mid tier corner for 7 or 8 mil. Add a cheap veteran QB like Gabbert to be a backup. (Not actually Gabbert please but some other failure journeyman)

    Draft a QB and pray he's decent and gives huge savings for the next 5 years.

    But we'll see.

    What two offensive linemen are you looking to add? It's a nice idea, but I don't believe you have looked at the FA OL class. It's not a great match.

    Yes they will, for what they owe him if he stays. Not playing up to that level.

    this is the offseason that if the Cards pay Badger his $5mm roster bonus, his 2018 and 2019 salaries get guaranteed and his cap hit goes to $14 mm per year for the next three years

    l love the guy, but he isnt a $14mm a year player

    they will if they are smart, cut him if you cant trade him.... hell, get a fifth for him...they already drafted Baker to replace him which means Keim dont feel married to him.

    The team has more holes than a spaghetti strainer.

    You could give them 100 mill and they won’t be able to compete with the Rams, Seattle and 9ers next year.

    Cards will be the Browns of the West

    And I’ll put my money where my mouth is. I’ll offer $300 in actual bets to anyone that’ll take the Cards over any team in the nfc west.

    cutting Mathieu only saves 4.8M against the 2018 cap. 9.3M in dead money

    but NOT cutting him makes the next two seasons $14mil each guaranteed.... cut him now, deal with modest dead money and be done with it...

    or try and get a pick for him...he seems to think he has a good market

    I think the plan coming into the offseason was to have money to rebuild. Anyway it looks like it now.

    this team does not have as many holes as it appears.... we need a QB obviously,...and a legit #1 WR...hell, make it a #1 and a #2... but Nelson, Golden, and Brown(Jauron)..are not complete deadbeats, they have value at their position... the trick is to not have to ask to much of them for extended periods of time.

    The absolute BEST thing we can do for our offense is improve at Oline coach.... talent wise we are not barren even with what we have...even though I would like to see a couple of young guys brought in just to increase our odds of having studs in the trenches.

    we can damn near stand pat with our defensive personnel and be okay...we just need to tweak it...replace dansby, secure one of the 23 FA CB's this off season

    there are a few reasons why we have looked weak the past couple of seasons and I would hazard that Harold Goodwin and Amos Jones are the two biggest problems we had.

    This is important to building the team. Giving the QB, whoever it is, that little extra time to make decisions will help him gain confidence. The run game with some decent holes will take some pressure off him also. We need to bring a top flight Oline coach who can coach up the young players.

    NE seems to have good coaches for their Oline. They withstand injuries and just seem to plug guys in. Brady has good time to throw most of the time. So if Patricia ends up here hopefully he can bring the guy or his asst with him.

    Never understood the "wringing of hands" by many on this board about the Cardinals not having enough cap space going into this offseason.
