Why allocate resources that way when you have a player that is interested in you that would elevate the play of the entire defense?
You would rather bank on getting two or three solid players rather than getting one franchise guy?
When your plan backfires and one or two of the guys you are targeting goes elsewhere then what? Just pick from the leftovers.
That makes no sense to me. You have the top rated player at his position, and it's a position we sorely need and you want to pass him over for Eric weddle and tier 3 corner?
If the money is not outrageous you stretch your pockets a bit and go for the stars. And you know the corny saying. . If you miss then you Langdon the moon.
Allocating resources is just code for being good in a few places while not being great at any. We have a lot of good on this team. It'd be nice to have some greatness.
This was one hell of a post.
And as far as just picking over the leftovers, well that is what the Texans have done pretty much every season in free agency since their existence.
