Which is fair, but we're still staring his cap hit right in the face. Even if he cuts it in half (which still isn't enough) his obvious and rapid decrease in play was startling. I keep harping on this, but Cortez held Gordon without a catch in the last game. Ike and Gay allowed 6 catches for over 60 yards. Not to mention the first game when Ike allowed 200+ yards to Gordon.
Even if he is our number two corner, what price tag would anyone be comfortable bringing him back with?
