This is part of the problem Rick has, not being able to effectively manage the cap.
If you want to look for excuses to draft Bridgewater over Clowney/Barr etc... you're going to have to look harder than this.
It is a very good debate. I'll give you that. Unless your QB magically rises to the occasion like Flacco or Eli, I just don't think two great DE will get your far in the playoffs. A Tom Brady-like quick release will send you home. I think everyone here has seen that.
