However DeCastro would've been a massive upgrade for an OL that really needed one. DeCastro is a 10 yr starter from day 1. IMHO
Also Mercilus was a great value and adds great depth to the LB corps. It was badly needed. The LB's are the key to Wades defense. This is why I would be willing to let Schaub walk if it meant keeping Cushing/Barwin along with LT Brown.
If Schaub is allowed to walk do you think Rick would have the $$$$ available to re-sign Cushing/Barwin/Quin on defense and Brown on offense?
I repped you for post #34. Great post, it should be required reading for all MB members.
