If we could get a third choice (or a second if we could get the "best" ultimate value) for Maroney even though we take a CAP hit, would you trade him now rather than wait for 2010? The downside is if he has even a worse year in 2009 we will get nothing for him. I don't think BB was comfortable with him as a projected #1 RB or he would not have went for Taylor. He isn't paying Taylor to sit. Maroney is not going to change his style and it does not fit our running game. I don't think the CAP hit scares them. Does anyone remember if we lost CAP hit money on Jackson? Teams that might take a flyer on Maroney are: The Eagles with plenty of picks to trade away. The Saints The Chiefs if they dump LJ. The Seahawks The Browns The Jags (almost a swap here) The 49ers The Bills (unlikely) The Rams The Lions The Cards The Cowboys took a $8.5m CAP hit dumping Owens. I think replacing Maroney at even a third round pick like Jennings or Brown might be a better move. Or trade might make sense. A kid like Aaron Francisco of the Cards who is behind Wilson solves dedicating a pick for a SS this draft and he is NFL ready with 56 tackles and a FF as a backup in 2008. He is 6'2' and 207. He is only 25 and he will sit behind Wilson for another couple years. Just a thought. Opinions? DW Toys Pro-Football Weekly: Keep a close eye on Cardinals second-year S Aaron Francisco, who we hear has put on decent weight and is being groomed to replace current FS Robert Griffith as early as next season. Our sources tell us the Cardinals believe they can probably get by with the aging Griffith in a starting role for one more season.
