Shady is 25 and isn't a bruiser so he doesn't have a ton of mileage on him he's got at least 5 yrs left. Desean is 26...he needs someone opposite him that is an actual threat since he's so slight, which is why we miss Mac so dearly. Our offense actually has 2 legit weapons and yes while we need to get the qb settled don't trade the only tools that likely rookie is going to have to rely upon on offense just for some draft picks, you can rebuild much faster in the nfl than say in the nba. We have a solid draft and plug some spots with FAs here and there for depth and we could be a 10win team as soon as next year. It's not gonna be a 3 yr project before we are a great team again, it better not bc Chip will leave if that's the case.
We aren't even gonna be in the running for a top 2 pick regardless bc I don't see Tampa or jax winning 3 games. And our schedule should net us at least 3-4 more if Foles is back and not a complete disaster like he was against Dallas.
you want to pay DeSean Jackson $10 million next year?
You gotta think like an NFL GM not a fantasy football GM; if you can get an additional first rounder plus some for Shady then I would do it
This is a passing league; running backs are interchangeable as long as you have the other pieces you can get by with a decent running back
Giants, Colts, Saints, Patriots, Packers, Steelers all won Superbowls in the past ten years and NONE of them had a stud RB
