That's a lot of money for us to invest.. The #1 Pick would be an OT signed to a big ass contract, along with a new monster contract extension for Cutler.. Not to mention, we've got Jeff Backus on a damn big contract too..
With that cost, don't you think we'd be better off taking Stafford #1?
I would hate for money to be the thing stopping us. Why have all the cap space then? You can still save 5 million by cutting Culpepper. Any team should be able to get around the cap, it should not be an issue.
Basically, your looking at two separate 30+ million guaranteed contracts.
Mortensen also said that Denver doesn't necessarily want a QB back as well which bodes well for us.
Edit - This may also be a chance for us to acquire Jason Campbell.
I read on teh rotoworld that Washington offered Campbell to another team for a second rounder today. So could you imagine a draft of
1A - Jason Smith, LT - Baylor
1B - Peria Jerry, DT - Ole Miss
2nd-Jason Campbell, QB - Redskins
