Yes, but Rick Smith doesn't seem to have a clue on how to get the most out of trade. It's like he doesn't even care to make the effort. Not saying that I know that for sure, but every off season there always seems to be players on the trading block for cheap and we're never in the running it seems. Rick's build through the draft only mentality has always irritated the hell out of me. It's a stubborn approach along with Kubiak's mind set as well. It just seems like we're never players in any sweepstakes for certain guys that can be had on the cheap in different trade scenarios. This lack of cap space irritated the hell out of me last off season and I talked about the problem at WR a lot in here, and all I ever heard from the typicals in here were how these young rookies were going to have these great seasons and carry the load just because.......Now we're a year away and all those same people are begging for WR's, and we still don't have the cap room to go out and find a new weapon to help out the passing game.
This will always be a problem with Rick Smith unfortunately
