The question may also come down to do what kind of team they want to be. Is it an offense focused team in which case I can see Fuller getting a nice pay day, assuming he stays healthy and plays like he did last week, and maybe Hyde or do they want more rounded in which case I agree it will be Reader or Mercilus. Really its still to early to see who is going to be the next person added to the "big contract" list. We should have a much better idea after the KC game. That's the first game where really everything will have to fire on all cylinders because even a hurt KC is still dangerous.You have room under the cap to spend big $$$$ on 5 players. Who they spend it on is the key to having a successful franchise in the future.
I'm thinking they will spend the big $$$$ on Watson/Tunsil/Hopkins/Watt. Who's the 5th guy you would spend the $$$$ on, on the current roster or would you look into the FA market to sign a big $$$$ FA to fill a position of need?
Reader would be my 5th guy on the current roster and I love the job Mercilus has done this yr.
BTW, with the new CBA the cap may allow for 6-7 big $$$$ players.
