The high $ players should be at the critical positions such as LT, WR1, QB and CB1. Exceptions like Foster who is top tier RB and a FA such as Manning exist.

After this off season, we should be grooming or drafting replacements for Schaub, AJ, OD, Manning, Antonio Smith and Joseph. IMO, replacements for Myers & Wade Smith
(Jones & Brooks)are on roster. Beginning in 2014, we should focus on top 3 rounds only and trade the other rounds.
I entirely agree that good drafting is key to successful cap management. You HAVE to let some of your higher priced veterans go and replace them with rookies. If you have too many draft misses, you can't do that anymore and the quality of your team suffers (see Cowboys, there are probably many others, but I follow DAL a little closer than most other teams).
