    CB's.........................any possible Patriot interest?

    Eagles could part ways with Asomugha, Rodgers-Cromartie

     

    03:02 PM ET 02.14 | The Philadelphia Eagles' secondary may have a brand new look next season. Cornerbacks Nnamdi Asomugha and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie may not be back with the team next year, writes Zach Berman of the Philadelphia Inquirer. Asomugha had a reputation as one of the finest corners in the NFL before he landed in Philly, but he hasn't showed that since. Asomugha will be 32 next season and he's due $15 million -- the highest salary on the books next season. If the Eagles cut Asomugha, they'll owe him just $4 million and free up $11 million in cap space.

    What is with the infatuation with this guy?

    He was terrible last season and doesn't know how to tackle.

    Please review the Pats cap situation, thier own free agents and see how they cannot afford these players




    There's plenty of maneuverability with the cap. The Pats are in a very good cap situation right now if you they don't resign Talib they could afford one of these guys.

    NE can dictate the salaries, RKrap. You don't seem to get markets. If a 32 year old player who has made all his money and played on crappy teams his whole career wants to play for NE, then that means BB has the leverage.

     

    This happens every year. It depends on our needs and what the player wants. I say this every year, that BB will play the market, watch for camp cuts and add in the cuts into the supply and demand of the other players.


    That's why these agents reaally would prefer their FAs to be signed before the draft, not after.

    NE wouldn't take on his salary either. We have no idea what BB would offer if either DRC or Aso are cut.  It's all about supply/demand, but if a player like Asomougha wants to play in NE or Talib wants to stay in NE and realizes the total package for what it is, then of course NE can budget for that kind of a player.

    This is what I mean about you not getting why it's so important to have leverage as a GM. You seem to applaud the teams with no leverage like the Jets, and then act like BB doesn't have it. LOL

    Andy Reid and Howard Roseman sunk themselves with their spending spree TWO years ago and the stupid Vick contract which put themselves in this position. I ran off an Eagles troll here predicting their knee jerk moves, like the Jets', wouldn't work.

    Now you can see how creating that leverage by BB, helps the PAts. If you OVERPAY in the market, make 1 or 2 bad moves with big money tied to it, these moves add up and put you behind the 8 ball.

    It's fascintating watching you not get this stuff. Still!

    lmao

    You can name drop people you casually know at ESPN all day long, but no one cares because it doesn't somehow make you intelligent on these topics.   You've proven you just don't get it.

     



    winning teams always have leverage over losing teams in signing players based on how much the player will take.....the patriots espescially have leverage because of the great owner, the fanbase, and the past success.

    do i want aso or DRC? not really, but if its a friendly one year deal, than i guess its worth a shot. they both are talented.

    Of course, but RKarp thinks that isn't true. He thinks the Jets have leverage.  Rex Ryan a lame duck coach, a new GM, no QB, etc. It's like the most unattractive spot for any draft pick or FA player in the NFL right now.

     

     




    definitely, the jets will have to spend some serious cash to get any good free agent to sign with them.

    I dont think people realize how much admiration BB gets from players around the league. i mean look at ed reed for example....and even though it didnt work out, look at how ochocinco felt about BB. a lot of good players want to play for the patriots BECAUSE OF BB. If he didnt know what he was doing, that wouldnt be the case.

    Even DRC?

     




    even DRC if they wanted him over any of the other three. They have room to move with good cap management but they don't have an endless amount of room. 2-4 top 5-20 deals (depending on positions signed) is their max right now if they want to sign their draft pick and fill out the roster. Of course the close you get into the top 5 range the less quality you can get on the back end and the more quality you want on the back end the less you can pay up front. Really they have enough space to resign Vollmer, get a starting caliber CB, and either get a top 20 WR or target say a top S and a coverage LB who won't hurt you on none passing downs or a situationally pass rushing DL who will give you ~5-8 sacks a year. They have room to move but not get crazy which isn't a bad thing because I don't think they are that far off. You need at least 2 CB's (one slot, one starting), a SS, an interior rushing presence, a coverage LB, RT, and at least 1 WR. The rest is essentially depth pieces. You have 3 picks, if 2 work out and you resign say Vollmer and Talib then really you are looking at 3 possible spots to fill. 1 would be a slot CB and another a coverage LB. Nether of which should break the bank. Additionally if you go S in the market and let Welker go you could get a slot CB, coverage LB, and a top 10 SS for what Welker would have received. At that point you filled the holes remaining while pushing the cap limit. So filling the holes with the current cap is more then do able but they have to be smart in who they sign and hit on 2/3rds of those early picks.

    I just don't understand how Philly can cut an underperforming 32 year old player and in a matter of minutes create 11 million in cap room...salary cap hell shouldn't allow this, correct??
