He’s not in his prime? Lol! How old do you think X is? Do you realize he plays in the secondary and that’s not like playing QB getting near age 30.

X has at best 2-3 more years of dominance the it starts to decline fast for his position.

Now is the best time to try and squeeze a 1st and at the very least high 2nd for him.
Unfortunately, with X you also have the injury concerns.

It also depends on what you have to replace him.

I can see both sides on this one.

Agreed to the injury concerns. But he played a whole season and that has to count.

Look at the Patriots way and Asnte Samuels? Butler? Etc!

Part of the problem is we drafted Iggy extremely high. He doesn't have the skillsets to play the slot and admittedly, right now, the boundary either. So what are you going to do with him going into next season if X is still around?

Second, It seems all but likely X is going to want to be better compensated. Considering how much you're already paying B.Jones who's not worth it btw, what are you going to do? Make the higest paid secondary even higher paid? You simply cannot do it.

X is a tremendous talent. But as an organization the best thing long term is to trade him this offseason. Yeah it sucks! But this is the same coaching staff that took a bunch of nobody's in Flo's first season as a coach and made them look respectable in the secondary.

At the very least you should be able to get a 2nd rounder for X. It also helps Iggy prepare to be the starter going forward.
