If we go full blown Rebuild next year then yeah I can see getting rid of AJ
look at what the colts did they went full blown Rebuild 2 years ago and still went 11-2 and made the playoffs LOL
1. And now without Wayne the Colts offense has sputtered and basically became a roller coaster. I am sure they feel a bit silly if they even entertained that thought and probably feel they need to find his replacement very soon.
2. They cut Hines Ward when he was at the end of his career. Also he was never the actual receiver Dre is who just got over 100 receptions yet again. Ward was just great all around and a worker. They had replacement receivers ready.
3. You would then add WR to replace which isn't always easy. And there is no way from what we have seen thus far that Hopkins is a guaranteed #1 receiver. Who would be #2? Hell...who would be #3? You don't fix your team by creating even more vital holes. You hold onto someone like Dre while grooming the future or having the backup plan ready. We have none at this time and have enough issues to deal with.
