That`s what I meant with "take players after their rookie contracts are over so they have 5 more good years left in them."
Our roster was a lot better than 2-14. It was a QB that was imploding, one of the worst kicking performances maybe in the history of the league and a coach that didn`t have a clue how to turn it around. 2 years ago we advanced in the playoffs. We have great players. And we did build through the draft. Most of our best players were drafted by us.
Great teams build a foundation in the draft and complement it with great FA - like we did when we signed Manning and Joseph.
