    Gonna be a huge blow regardless of what anyone else says.

    The narrative was "we can let him walk because Kris is gonna coach up Woods, Lewis, Chido" and none of those 3 have taken that next step up this year. It's been such a letdown that you might actually be forced to make him a solid offer (kinda like D-law, we had no alternative or backup so we kinda had to make him an offer)

    Before this year, I agreed.

    After this year, let him walk. He’s too inconsistent, doesn’t make plays on the ball in the air and is getting beat by lesser players. I would love to retain him, but I’m not paying top dollar for him.

    He just looks better because Awuzie is ****

    Might be, but it's a bigger mistake to pay him.

    Yes, it as was also a mistake to pay Zeke.

    Hope we can draft a corner in the first round next year that replaces his one interception every other year.

    I agree we should keep him, but if I remember correctly, there were complaints about BJ's play his first couple of years. These young guys may rise to the occasion.

    I do understand he was playing out of position at safety some of that time.

    To be fair his bad play was more the coaches forcing him out of position because "he's a great athlete we can get him to play whatever we want" (years 2 and 3 which are key years he's at the wrong position, that's a long time out of position). His first year starting at CB he made 2nd team all-pro

    Byron is having a good year but not nearly as good as last year. Wonder if that will affect his offers/prices (if we can get him at a non-pro bowl price it's worth a look)

    We're fixing to paint ourselves into the same corner we were in a few years ago, paying the starters so much that our backups were trash. You cannot pay everyone, and we've already paid too many. IMO.

    Who cares? Let him walk, focus on the defensive line, get a good secondary coach and see things improve.
