    Should we offer 17, 81, and a 2nd in 2021?

    No. They can take 17 or stuff it.

    17 is more than we gave up for Amari Cooper. Adams would be a difference maker on defense but anything more than 17 is too rich for my blood.

    Fish claims Cowboys offered 17 & Anthony Brown last year. Doesn't think anything happens until after the draft though. Another future 1.

    Why trade for Jamal Adams when we can pick Xavier McKinney with the 17th pick?

    Xavier McKinney is another Jamal Adams.

    Yeah as much as we need a C, if McKinney is there I take him. Would mitigate the loss of Byron Jones quite a bit and also upgrade the back end of the defense.

    No, he's not.

    He doesn't have the size or athleticism that Adams has. He doesn't play remotely as physical as Adams. He's not as instinctive as Adams.

    If they wouldnt offer that much last year why do it now that hes in the final year of his deal?

    I think you're going to see Haha and Woods week 1. Doubt they would have made the dip in free agency only to turn around and deal for Adams

    At this point, I'd assume we don't have the money to trade for Adams. The rookies will be a way better deal. Tons of talent.

    Really? Let's see...

    Jamal Adams (Strong Safety): 6'0", 214 lbs, 4.56 40 time.



    Xavier McKinney (Strong Safety): 6'1", 200 lbs, 4.63 (cramping on only attempt) 40 time...waiting for Pro Day.



    What were you saying? They look very similar to me.

    I don't agree with this, the bust rate is high and you get one of the best players in the league at their respective position.

    You going to pay his salary? He's going to reset the market at S and I don't think we want to have too many more market-resetting salaries on the books.

    One is an inch short, 14 pounds heavier but still faster...yeah not seeing how that helps your stance.
