We can always build through the draft and expect our rookies to put our team over the top. After all that's what SB teams do every year right? They just ignore free agency and any guys on the trade blocks for rookies. It works perfectly.
Cap hell? Exaggeration much? The Texans have cap issues, but not being able to re-sign the guys that have moved on to other teams hardly constitutes cap hell. Ignore free agency? So you're just going to discount Rick Smith's role in signing Jonathon Joseph and Danieal Manning? Seems like the Texans were active then. You're blowing things way out of proportion.
And you're comparing apples and oranges between NBA GMs and NFL GMs. Trades are rare in the NFL. They happen, but there are very few instances when star players are moved. It's usually role players and/or draft picks.
