    Cards give veteran LB permission to seek trade after drafting Zaven Collins.

    Interesting as I assumed they would initially rotate Collins in slowly but if Hicks is gone he will be our starting 'backer with Budda i would think wearing the green dot.

    I don't think it's Collins who fully made that decision for them, although it tipped the scales for sure. I think they like Vallejo there too over Hicks.

    Obviously now, they hope Collins takes that spot but I think they had Vallejo penciled in to play more either way.

    I'm not sure why they didn't last year. In Week 7 and 17 he took snaps from Hicks and looked better. Feel's like they could have given Vallejo more after that week 7 game considering how poor Hicks was.

    Maybe he needs to be in a 4-3 like at Philly.

    Probably a release:

    $6M cap hit in 2021.

    If designated as post 6/1 - would be split $3m (2021) and $3m in (2022)

    They should send him back to Philly for Ertz in a straight swap (with an Ertz contract restructure included)

    Too bad, Hicks would have been a good tutor for Collins and also a solid backup in case of injury.

    nobody is trading for Hicks unless there is a training camp injury

    this feels a little bit like Keim issued an edict to Vance: Collins will play (i.e. no Simmons part 2)

    i think it also illustrates Keim's insecurity: he feels great pressure to get his 1st round pick on the field

    I’m ok with that... MLB is the one postition where rookies routinely come in and make an impact. Hopefully ours does.

    Oh, I'm cool with it too. The story since the draft was how great it would be to have Hicks mentoring Collins. I was just saying that is out the window.

    Toss the rookie out there, IMHO. Let's go !!

    Just speculation but I’m guessing once it was put out there that Collins is going to be and expected to be the starter Hicks asked for this....

    Yeah we really have no seasoned vet at ILB if he’s gone. That’s kind of squirrelly.
