Hard decisions need to be made and we are the guys to do it! Off season moves thread

Hard and painful decisions need to be made.

1. King Carl needs to resign as GM and stay on as CEO/El Presidente. Not going to happen but it's what should happen.

2. Don't re-sign Tony G. Pains me to say that. I love Tony G but one of the reason why the Pats have been successful has been their willingness to let long time older players go instead of giving them a nice big end of the career contract. We have too many holes to fill and he's only got 1-2 productive years left but he will get paid for 5-6 years. See where I spend his money below.

3. Re-sign Jared Allen. Give him some money to hire a limo or pay for a cab.

4. Re-sign Jimmy Wilkerson. Should be a "cheap" resignee and he has a lot of upside.

5. Give LJ some more money. Maybe we could get a 1st and 3rd for him but maybe not. And if we did get that we would still have King Carl picking those draft picks. I'll take the sure thing with LJ over a gamble of King Carl draft picks.

6. Trade Trent Green to Washington for draft picks. Whatever we can get. Fire Sale prices if needed. I love Trent for what he has done for KC but its time to move on.

7. Keep Ty Law and pay him the roster bonus. We need big time playmakers with big game experience. He's the only one we got right now.

8. Resign Huard as the stopgap starting QB. Going on the assumption/rumors that I hear that Herm believes that Croyle really is the QOTF. And Herm is in charge of that part of the team.

9. Shields needs to retire. I don't want to see this legends skills erode any further. I want to remember him pancaking Ray-Ray.

10. Release Dante Hall. He has given me a lot of great memories but that is all we will ever have in the future from Dante is those memories. He has lost his burst.

11. Release Priest Holmes. For 3 years he gave us such joy. We don't need to see a public fight and all that goes with it. King Carl just needs to let him keep his signing bonus money.

12. Pay money for the top LT on the FA market.

13. Pay money for the top DT on the FA market.

14. Pay money for the top WR on the FA market. We pay for these 3 FA's with the cap money not being paid next year to Roaf, Shields, Sims, Hicks, Knight, Holmes, Hall, Bell, Mitchell, Green and Gonzalez.

15. Draft DT, OT, OG and WR. Whenever you pick take the best one of those positions that are available.

16. Let Ryan Sims and Kawika Mitchell go. Release Knight, Hicks, Hall, Bartee and Bell.

Herm gets more than one year. He gets to pick his coaches. Hopefully he realizes the predictability of the play calling and gets it changed.

Can we drop this "trade Trent Green" idea? It would destroy the cap.

I don't think Washington will want Trent, unless he's going to be a backup. They just made the change to their QBOTF.
Also, this has been mentioned in several other threads, the the WR free agent market isn't great. If we're going to make a real upgrade at the position, I think we'll have to do it through the draft or a trade.

Divorces are painful but we have to move on. Trent is done here in KC.

It's not going to happen. The Chiefs are not going to trade Trent Green. Furthermore, I doubt there are any takers.

There's also that to consider. The Redskins HAVE their quarterback. Why give up picks for another one?

I know. This is a wish list only.

So we are playing money for top WR, LT, and DT in the draft and giving LJ more money?

I thought trades took the salary with them and therefore not a cap hit? I know I don't know everthing about the logistics, so please just hand out the information and not the slander.

I thought the cap would take a hit if we were just to drop/release a player who still has bonus and salary for the next couple of years.

Again I also ask (asked on another thread just a few minutes ago, so it may have been answered) what about retirements. Like when Roaf retired, was his salary numbers for this year still on our cap numbers? If Trent were to retire, would that help?

The signing bonus would accelerate. I'm guessing it's around $15 million.

OK. I'm stupid. Or ignorant, whatever. Take your pick.

Green's contract was 7 years, $50 million with an $11.25 million signing bonus. I'm guessing around half of that bonus has already been paid out. So we'd eat the rest, which wouldn't be too horrible of a cap hit.

In fact, Green is scheduled to make over $7 million in 2007, and I'm betting the accelerated bonus money is less than that.

Am I wrong somewhere?

Retain Trent Green, but as QB coach. Let go of Priest Holmes. Keep Tony G. Trade, not draft, for a DE and DT. Draft, not trade for, D-backs.

Trade for another vet at O-Tackle. Draft for O-guard to be tutored under Waters and Shields for the next two drafts.

Draft Jamarcus Russell out of LSU, and let Brody Croyle and him fight it out for 2nd and 3rd string. Retain Damon Huard and start him. See if we can get ahold of J. P. Losman.

Trade/pick up on waivers a wide out, trading away Dante Hall. Keep the RB's we have now.

Post next season, draft for TE, for TG's replacement. Release TG after the next 3 seasons.

More (or try?) slant passes on first down. Run only one back in the backfield, or run the I with 2 backs.
