granted he's a good player, BUT you run into 1 of 2 issues possibly. He wants way too much money to resign and then you are paying a **** load for the franchise tag, or 2) he acts like Tunsil and is pretty much able to hold the team hostage since they spent so much for them, hence why tunsil got the massive pay day instead of just paid. I guarantee you, if he is traded then he is the highest paid safety by a large margin by the team that got him come next season. If we want him, its best to wait til next year, if he's not tagged, we can prob get him for a million or so less a season. but noway we can have that much invested with adams, howard, and jones
He is too much of a head case. You invest draft picks and money into acquiring him, how much will that feed his ego to untouchable status? Will he listen to coaches at all? I wouldn’t want to make that gamble.
Question, could we afford the following scenario? Trade X for Adams straight up(or throw in a 6 or 7th round pick), then sign Logan Ryan. A defensive backfield of Howard, Ryan, and Adams would be awesome. Let Igbinoghene play and learn from Ryan to eventually take over for him in 2 to 3 years.
