I have brought this up before, but would anyone be willing to deal a draft pick, maybe a 1st rd pick for this guy? I just cannot ignore this news. Mayhew should have been canned already, but if he doesn't deal Suh, he's a moron to the nth degree. If they wanted him there, he'd be there by now, but there is still no deal and their discussions are over for the year. Translation? He's gone.
I know it sounds unlikely, not possible, etc, but what a time to backfill the DT spot here for years to come by taking advantage of this opportunity?
Maybe let Revis walk after 2014 and put some money into McCourty and this guy instead. Can you imagine he and Easley with Jones and Silliga in a second rotation for the future?
I have very, very hard time believing Mayhew is this stupid in letting Suh win and go to FA after the season. To me it just screams trade for Detroit since they didnt extend him and they are not a SB contender in that division yet or in that conference.
It makes no sense to rent him for a year when you know you aren't a SB contender this year. It reminds me of the Peppers thing for Carolina thing and what BB had to do with Seymour in 2009. BB waited all summer to get a 1st rd pick and got it with Seymour, wisely so. I don't think Suh is worth more than that because of what he'll command.
What top 3 pick does not get a second deal when the player is very good or great before his prime? Answer: None of them. I fully realize he's shown immaturity and I normally don't like that, but I think he would snap into line here.
Before mouthing off, think about this:
1. Detroit would likely not deal him in the NFC. That leaves 1 AFC team as a possible landing spot.
2. Once Hernandez is guilty, his money comes off the books in 2015. Not only that, the cap is going up.
3. BB could walk from Revis and still have Browner, Dennard and Ryan in here for 2015 with Browner as the lead CB. Maybe stash a Hawkins on the PS and he can add some depth to the position.
Instead of using a 1st rd pick, why not get a sure thing, maybe control the contract the way BB is known to do and have any DT issues of the future solved for years to come with the cheap Easley alongside?
