If the Cards trade Larry Fitzgerald to a team which has a QB or they get themselves one, he could too.

While I agree that Fitzgersld certainly could... alas, he's simply not going to have a QB worth anything throwing the ball to him. Ergo, he won't get 2000 yards. (Such a shame that he's been stuck on such crappy teams.)

He and Megatron hasn't been on good teams but they both sure as hell have gotten paid for their services this far. Beats the hell out of being on the other end of the spectrum, on good teams but not making much doesn't it?

In all fairness, CJ isn't playing on the best of teams either. Granted, Stafford is head and shoulders above whatever the hell you want to call the Quarterback situation in Arizona right now, but it's not like he's elite.

While I think Fitz' talents are being wasted right now and he would put up significant yardage elsewhere (bring him here! bring him here!) he'll be 30 before the start of next season. I don't think a 30 year old getting 2000 yards is likely. Though, if anyone could do it, it'd be Larry.

If everything they're doing right now is to get into cap compliance, it wouldn't surprise me at all if they're going to make a run at Mike Wallace.

Think about this for a second: we just have to get into cap compliance by March 12th. With the restructures by LT, AB and Ben we're already close to being there. If LaMarr does as well we're actually in positive territory. So, now we have some room to work with. However, releasing Troy, James, Keisel, Colon would put us in a place so we could potentially spend money (holy shit). Then, the harder cuts (Polamalu isn't in the harder cuts list) like Ike and Clark would free up another 5 million, roughly. If Mike and co. feel as if Keenan and Cortez can lock shit down from here on out, Ike becomes replaceable.

Here's the most interesting part, though - we could lock up both Keenan Lewis and Mike Wallace if we choose if those guys are released. There's an issue in terms of lack of depth along the offensive line and at Safety, but these are issues that can be solved in the draft. Assuming we go OLB in the first and Safety in the second, our secondary could look something like:

Lewis - Phillip Thomas / Fresno State - Bacarri Rambo / Georgia - Cortez Allen

and have it be young and explosive that knows how to create turnovers.

So, keeping on this school of thought, our starting defense would look like:

Secondary

Phillip Thomas - Safety
Bacarri Rambo - Safety
Keenan Lewis - CB
Cortez Allen - CB


Linebackers

Lawrence Timmons - ILB
Nico Johnson / Sean Spence - ILB
Dion Jordan / Barkevious Mingo / Jarvis Jones - ROLB
LaMarr "hopefully in shape" Woodley - LOLB


Defensive Ends

Cameron Heyward - RDE
Alameda Ta'amu - NT
Ziggy Hood - LDE


I'd be okay with that.

If the correct cuts are made, we can keep both Mike and Keenan but we can't be afraid to let the younger guys step in and play immediately. It's time to drop the bullshit ideology of 'well, our scheme is too hard for a rookie to understand and comprehend so we're going to sit him for three years before he starts' and let them come in and make an impact week 1.

Keep Mike, Manny and AB together as 'young money' but let them do what they do best. Don't force them to play in a scheme that doesn't compliment their abilities and, for the love of god, get a legitimate Running Back.

Colbert has always stated that he wants to resign Wallace.

BB declared that resigning Wallace was "his" top priority.

It's very possible that he stays.

If he wouldn't take 10 mil or whatever it was a year last year what makes you think he will sign now?

Cause no way we will be able to sign him to what we offered last year.

They weren't far off last summer. Sometimes, after a year of thinking it over, people realize that the grass is not greener.

Is it likely that he wants $14 million from the Dolphins? Yes.

Is it also possible that a deal for $10.5 million is reached w/ the Steelers? Yes.

I did see us having the ability to sign anyone to a big deal.

Wallace at this point is his career = money>winning
Or get both and sign with the pats.
