Re: My dream mock (so far...)
If you're going to dream you might as well dream big! I REALLY like Upshaw and have for a couple years. I'd love to have him in our OLB rotation. However, I really like Mario and think he will be outstanding if he remains reasonably healthy. I do worry about his contract given our cap situation.
I saw the 17 for MW trade on a mock site and thought it sounded good from a purely FB perspective for both sides. It gives Cinn a premiere DL and they still have their original pick to add some talent. They also have the cap room to make a major FA addition. I do agree that they have been an abyss but I think they're on the up swing. They have Dalton, Green, Gresham, a solid OL, and decent RBs on O, a solid LB corp and a couple nice DLmen on D. If you add MW to Geno Atkins their DL becomes MUCH better. If you add some solid DBs with their other picks (say Mark Barron at S) and they'll be a factor in their division.
I think in FA, money talks more than anything. I know some older players chase rings for less money, but MW is in his prime. I could see him chasing $$$ and maybe the chance to move back to DE on a 4-3. Who knows, Im just having fun considering possibilities. I'm curious to see what happens with MW given our cap situation though.
