If you were going to use Shady as something to flip, you'd want more assets than just a rookie QB and nobody to put around him, including your defense.
Especially when you saw Foles go 27/2 just last year and step back without Lazor. His mechanics got off, he made some unsafe choices with the ball, clean that up, and he'd be just fine, you work on the secondary, keep Shady (or flip him for more assets/lower costs) and press on.
well it would only be this draft and next draft we wouldn't have a 1st.. and we would have the remainder of our picks in this upcoming draft (so we could go duke in the 2nd or 3rd)
we are already 20 mill under the cap.. and once we cut certain guys we'll be 30-40 + mill under
sign a corner in FA.. draft a CB in the 2nd (CB shouldn't be playing out the gate anyways, unless as a nickel guy).. RB in the 3rd.. then defense the rest of the way
but we would still have polk and sproles.. then bring in a rookie behind them.. we resign maclin, then we have Mathews and huff in their 2nd years.. plus ertz and celek
so really we would be getting out like 2 seasons early on shady?
if we solidify our QB spot, it would be well worth it
and foles got extremely lucky last year to go 27/2 (with dropped INTs.. or guys making miracle plays).. but he just makes terrible decisions and seemingly has issues reading a defense.. I mean there is no other explanation how you could miss guys THAT wide open
