    I hope we can bring him but at the same time I hope they donít get tunnel vision for him because FA can be unpredictable. Iíd at least keep a line open with Trae Waynes and a few other CBs so we arenít scrambling last minute. Probably send a few feelers out for potential trades as well, someone like Trufant. Maybe even Adoree Jackson if the Titans want an early return on him after breaking the bank to resign guys like Henry, Tannehill, possibly Conklin and Ryan too.

    I wouldn't be surprised if there were multiple CB's signed. I think Jones is arguably the best available via trade or FA anyway so go get him I say

    Pretty easy for these "insiders" to link free agent players, or soon to be cuts to teams with clear needs for said players at these positions, I wouldn't put too much merit into this. Cornerback will be a targeted position in free agency and the draft I am sure, but you could rumour any free agent at that position to Denver in all honesty and have a good shot at being right. Paying defensive free agents over offensive ones makes sense in the current market though.

    Fans get tunnel vision, decision makers almost always have contingency plans.

    This would be good. How about Chris Harris saying he thinks the Chiefs would be a good fit for him?

    Our FO hasnít had the best contingency plans lately. Thatís why Iím worried. Byron Jones should absolutely be the top target but since heís the top CB hitting the market he will likely wait for one of Waynes, Ryan, or Breeland to set the market. Then if those guys are gone and we still donít get him we end up with a guy like Jimmy Smith or Trumaine Johnson.

    I donít know any example that you can point at and say we missed and didnít have a contingency plan. From the draft (trading down, likely because of Hockenson) to FA, weíve seemingly moved through options.

    I can, more so in free agency, because it's hard to know what plan A, and plan B would be when it comes to the draft. They would never come out and say, "yeah we wanted so and so, but he went, so we had a plan to fall back and then grab you know who", it's all speculation in that regard.

    When it comes to free agency though, their are plenty. For example, and the most glaring,Brock Osweiler, what was the plan there if he didn't re-sign ? It ended up being Mark Sanchez. What about when Malik Jackson walked ? Jared Crick and Adam Gotsis ? Then a year later went after Calais Cambpell, missed on him. That isn't even getting into the recent years of trying to find offensive lineman of any sort of quality, and constantly failing to do so. I can see what Beast is saying there for sure.

    Unfortunately contingency plans involve budget constraints.
