So Hicks doesn't think he can beat out Collins & has no interest in mentoring cause of playing time incentives tied to contract I'm guessing?
I think it’s about what hicks believes when he’s told his starting spot has been given to a kid without competing in camp.

There's a reason why the DOT goes to an inside linebacker.

:shrug:

Unless you have two raw ILBs. You dont just follow a general guidance when you have an abnormal situation. But, you know, we could keep the guy who is declining and not playing great just because of a green dot?

Perception is reality. Bust of luck on the pessimism.
Great football argument!

Healthy prior experience-based skepticism is not pessimism.

which of the following courses of action do you think results in failure at a greater rate:

A) healthy competition between an experienced mid-career vet and high draft pick rookie, with the vet as a fallback option (my preference)

B) relying on a rookie without a single practice snap with no seasoned veteran as a fallback (your preference)

pretty sure history is likely to favor A

Sure.

What is the mid career vet says I want no part of this?

Hits me odd that he is telling Hicks to trade himself. Isn't that the GMs job? Will our GM start providing permission for draft picks to find a trade for the Cards to move back or up?

Jordan is doing his own trading. Now teams know he is tradable and will be able to talk with the cards about it.

Everyone needs to chill. It's not the first time in NFL history a round 1 player has been drafted and a team has penciled him in to start right away while jettisoning the vet he's replacing.

The Ravens did it just last year with Josh Bynes for Patrick Queen and Bynes had been playing much better than Hicks.

I never understood why we cut Bynes. He was a good dude on a cheap deal. There's a guy you could bring back for vet depth for next to nothing.

Even if Collin's isn't great it would be very hard for him to be worse than Hicks was last year. So you may as well play the rookie, let him get up to speed faster.

Projected Starter. 8 where drafted by the Cardinals. Most backups are 25 or younger. I'd like to see a vet CB and DL brought in.

DT 94 Allen, Zach Age 23
NT 95 Fotu, Leki Age 22
RDE 99 WATT, JJ Age 32
SLB 55 JONES, CHANDLER Age 31
ILB 48 Simmons, Isaiah Age 22
ILB 25 Collins, Zaven Age 21
OLB 44 GOLDEN, MARKUS Age 30
LCB 21 BUTLER, MALCOLM Age 31
SS 34 Jalen Thompson Age 22
FS 32 Baker, Budda Age 25
RCB 23 ALFORD, ROBERT Age 32
NB 33 Murphy, Byron Age 23

Man that's a D riddled with question marks and holes.

Results will vary obviously, but at least we’re young somewhere else other than safety.
