You will not find me ever supporting resigning Anderson at those rates. Anderson is a #3 WR and at-best can be paid accordingly. I don't think either are particularly impactful. If Adams moved the needle, we'd have a better record since he arrived. A Quarterback, an Offense, that wins games. Pass rush (of which Adams is a stand-in at best given our lack of LB, DT and Edge rushers) wins games. Great coverage leading to multiple Interceptions wins games (and Adams did win a game with one of his infrequent turnovers this year) wins games. Strong Safeties will never be needle movers, they'll always be luxuries or fill ins for weaknesses elsewhere. Someone put it perfectly: Pretend you don't have Adams today. Pretend he was drafted by the Cowboys, say. Would you, TODAY, trade our #1 Pick and #3 pick this year to acquire him, and pay him $15 million+ per year for the next five years? Given the State of this team, and our horrific 32nd ranked offense, I wouldn't. And I don't think anyone else would either. And if you wouldn't, and cannot defend doing it, well......we have our answer. Valid points especially the final sentences: I’m being devils advocate here, maybe I’m in the mood to debate a little today. 1. He’s a 24yr old very good safety, who’s impact on the field we see....... but none on this board know his impact behind the scenes ie: “with the guys“ 2. signing him shouldn’t really hamper this team fixing the offense: The OL should be fixed through the draft, maybe get lucky and sign a decent FA (they usually don’t shake free) and develop a couple guys...ie: The OL under Rex w faneca, b moore etc Davante Parker nor Deandre Hopkins are shaking free so again WR must be fixed through the draft along with signing a guy like John Brown as buffalo did this year.
