Re: Purge salaries, build for 2014
The Cortez Allen / Keenan Lewis decision parallels the Mike Wallace / Tone Brown decision.
If you can't keep both which one do you choose? Allen is signed for 2 more years I believe. Can they afford Lewis? He is asking for Ike Taylor money. Sign Lewis and use Taylor's money on Allen when he retires?
I personally would let Lewis walk if he demands Ike Taylor money. Lewis has 1 career interception and while opposing quarterbacks have only an 80 RTG against him he covers the 2nd WR not the first WR.
So QBs have average production against Lewis matched up on the 2nd WR and he doesn't cause turnovers.
Allen is almost identical to Lewis - 6'1 4.51 40 time vs 6'0 4.47 40 time - but he has caused more turnovers in less playing time and opposing QBs also have an 80 RTG versus him.
Do they draft Johnathon Banks in the first?
