If we could do that without destroying the cap, I have no doubt we'd be a better team.
Look, we had too much youth last year. Consider that we have another 11 draft picks this year, I'm not concerned with getting too old. Of course, I don't really want 6 guys on defense that are all around 35, but I'll certainly take a couple of qualtiy veterans. Given that Antonio Smith is likely gone after this year, I would forecast our that our 11 defensive starters in 2014 would all be under 28 years old, with the possible exception of Dannieal Manning:
Crick/Jamison/2013 draft pick?
Braman?/2013 draft pick?
Pleasant (2013 draft pick)
Keo (2013 draft pick) --I'm not seeing age as a problem.
