    But the big difference between them I’d say is that I think Anderson has better hands for one (1 drop last season) and he has much more potential as a route runner where as I think Perriman caps out as an Ashley Lelie one trick pony type of WR. Plus I think Perriman benefitted from Winston’s propensity to hold onto the ball for forever and a day as well as Mayfield last season when he had a mini run like what he did with the Bucs. The ceiling may be similar but the floor is vastly different
    I agree with you that the floor is lower for Perriman but the cost is lower also. It is a risk reward proposition. Anderson is 26 years old, in the prime of his career with young QB on a rookie contract.... and his team doesn't seem to want him? The PFF site is predicting 4 years at 13.3 million per year for Anderson. I have seen other sites between 10-14. Also predicting Perriman at 1 year 7 million guarantee

    I would rather sign Perriman to a 2 year 15 million contract 5 million guaranteed in first year. Give us an out for year 2.

    Then Draft a WR or 2

    I don't know if we're still in the mix with Bouye coming here, but I'd love to see Slay in Denver. He or Jones would make this secondary beastly again.

    Perriman has SOOOO MUCH SPEED. I think he'd pair well with Sutton honestly.

    Well, the thing to keep in mind is we share a division with Mahomes...You win the division with strong defense and that's going to mean spending the money to make that happen. Slay or Jones still make sense, especially since we can cut flacco and leary and be sitting pretty good capwise.

    I think it takes us out of the trade market although Iíd still love to make the Josh Jackson move but I still believe Jones is very much in play.

    I totally agree with you. I think he would give us an extra dimension. I really like the idea of signing him to a shorter contract that is mostly guaranteed

    We can have good cap this year, but next year is where it hurts, and the next. If we pick up Slay we give up 50+ million in just the secondary, so I dont know if they are going to do that. I would love to have Slay, but I dont think they want to do that before getting some Dline help

    I agree with you. I think we are done with big money long term contracts in the secondary, for now. The nice thing about a trade for a low round draft pick is that it wonít affect our compensatory pick analysis next year.

    I believe any other secondary moves (outside of signing Simmons) will be in the second wave of FA or the draft.

    I donít think we should have 4 secondary players at 10 million + per year and Callahan at 8. That would be terrible cap management, IMO of course.

    I totally agree with you. Spend big here on the secondary and trade up for simmons. We would now have a SB caliber defense again,

    We also have a lot of our talent on offense on rookie deals for years to come.

    That's exactly right. Now is the time to spend big with our stud QB on a rookie deal.

    Trade for Slay. Talib AND Chris Harris made our secondary dangerous. One couldn't have done it without the other. We need another stud. We might get a guy like the DT from Auburn to slide to us at 15, and BAM, our Defense scares the heck out of every offense on the planet, even the Chiefs'.

    Yep, just saw this. Oh well. Guess we'll have to hope Bouye can be a #1. Amukamara still a possibility I guess, unless he's somewhere else also.

    So grateful we didnít spend this kind of money in our already expensive secondary
