Except that you fail to take into consideration that value is affected by what has already been added to the team. In adding Chandler Jones and Dont'a Hightower, that took away value from someone like Vinny Curry. And, as I said and you completely ignored, there was clearly something about Reyes and Still that BB felt lowered their value to less than what he felt Wilson brought. Again, only BB can answer that. Yes. Johnson is a lock. Why? Because BB has NEVER cut a player during a season in which said player restructured his deal to stay with the team. Not once. Why? because it's bad business and vets would stop doing it if he did. And before you mention Haynesworth, his deal was restructured to facilitate the trade.. Not so he could stay on the Patriots. What you would rather have done is beside the point. Just like what I would rather have had is beside the point.
