I've been thinking about this a little bit lately and want to know what everyone thinks.

We have a legitimate Top 5-10 CB locking down half the field in Desmond Trufant, he's a proven player who has flourished with very little help on bad defenses. However, he doesn't quite fit the taller/longer corner mold that Coach Quinn brings in.

Will Quinn/TD let him walk because he doesn't fit (and move J.Collins to #1 after?) or will they bring him back?

To me, he's as important to our team as Julio/Ryan, probably the next most important player after those two. I hope we bring him back/have money to bring him back but the scheme fit thing is a bit concerning towards him getting another deal. Maybe his family line, and his brother being in Seattle for so long might change it (thought I don't think DQ ever coached Marcus)?

The thought of him in another uniform sucks, even with DQs penchant for developing later round corners. Imagine the horrors of Trufant on the Saints... *shudders*

Just imagine if both Beasley and Matthews turn out to be the type of players we think they can be.

You then have a 100 million dollar QB, a 70 million dollar wide receiver, a shutdown cornerback, an elite left tackle, and a dominant pass rusher.

That's good news for your football team, and bad news for your salary cap. It's only realistic to assume that one of them may not be Falcons once the time comes to extend.

Cap keeps going up and there is a lot of time.....

Well thankfully these contracts aren't due for a few years. We certainly can't fear signing players now because we are afraid of the cap 3 years from now.

Hags too. I'm not concerned tho with the cap rising and TD's cap management

I'm not certain yet. Does he excel at press? I honestly don't know.

If he excels at press, then we'll do our best to resign him. If he doesn't excel at press, then he'll open a weakness against us while in cover 3. I think I've read that this defense needs its corners to be able to press well in order to disrupt the quick slants, etc. of the west coast Offense.

Or Hageman or Jarrett or Coleman or Freeman or.....

We've got a whole lot of young promise here. I'd rather be forced to make the tough choices than not have any choices to make.

And to that I think Matt would shave money off his deal to keep the best guys on the team. Only logical conclusion to that. Imo

How many teams have let Revis walk over salary demands/cap hit? It is a valid question. Not immediately, of course, but the OP did not frame the question with any sort of immediacy.

Revis is just looking for morney thus he has gone from being a jet,to a buc,to a. Patriot back to a jet.

Sherman signed was a 4yr 50mil contract Peterson signed somewhat similiar.

Also consider when it's time to sign Trufant, there will not be another top tier CB looking for top CB money. So what happens with the Cap increased,we will basically use Peterson and Sherman contracts as the measuring stick. Won't be like Julio who everyone was seeing who bite first between dez,DT,AJ.
