    signing a guy who you’ve forced to take a major pay cut, is on the wrong side of 30, hasn’t played in TWO YEARS and was AWFUL the last time he did play THREE YEARS AGO should have zero bearing on what needs are dependent at the draft for CB.

    counting on Alford to be anything but camp fodder is a recipe for disaster.

    Have said on a few occasions that my hope is for Jaycee Horn at #16 and Javonte Williams in the second.

    Right and solars point is that all the other teams wanting a cb and a rb know that about the cards too have more draft ammunition to jump ahead of keim to grab them.

    I have no issue with how we used our draft ammunition, particularly a third for a Pro Bowl Centre.

    Keim is free to trade 2022 draft assets to make a deal if need be. Teams do it regularly.

    Right that’s called mortgaging your future to pay for the sins of the past.

    I’m curious, are you a keim fan?

    No first-round picks:

    LA Rams in 2021, 20, 19, 18, 17; Seattle SH in 2021, 17, 15, 14, 13; New England in 2020, 17, 16, 13; Kansas City in 2019, 18, 16; Indianapolis in 2020, 19 and there are other examples of this type of mortgaging for success.

    I'm agnostic when it comes to Keim.

    Alford has grossed over $40m in his career so far.

    That he's coming back for a $1m says that he believes in himself and has something to prove. I like that.

    Well, the need won't be addressed if it's not in the 2nd round, it'll be some player we can't reasonably expect to contribute meaningfully, but whatever.

    If Bidwill is going to allow Keim to mortgage the futures of drafts he might not even be around for, Bidwill should go too.

    And I'd be fine with/love this, but I think it's unrealistic to hope Williams will be there and we need to be as proactive as we can to best make it work.

    Edit: Need a new iPad. Thing's touchscreen highlights and deletes words constantly.

    I like his mindset. I don’t like any reliance upon it.

    that he's coming back for 1 million says there was zero market for a guy who hasn't played in 2 years and was atrocious when he did play 3 years ago.

    he's coming back with something to prove? great. he shouldn't be counted on for anything until he ACTUALLY proves he can even stay on the field at this point, much less be adequate on it.

    Three years ago he toughed through a calf strain. And I don't count on anyone until real bullets fly.

    Don't know why you're dogging me on this.

    How do you know that Keim didn't try to trade up but was turned down? Was Keim quoted as saying that he didn't think anyone else would draft Mahomes or Watson so they just sat on their hands & waited for one to drop to them?

    Don't take it personal. He just likes to argue. He should have been a lawyer like his brother. :)
