This a false assumption on your part. I have never said they had money to throw around and address every issue on the team.The simple fact is that the team, because of the $18M cap penalty, did not have the money to throw around and the ability to address every issue on the team.
This is the crux of the matter. Imo they selected the wrong players. Even if they weren't suspended or injured I don't think TJ and Meriweather were good enough answers to the S position.They found 2 players they thought, rightly or wrongly, would be an upgrade from the players from last year.
This suggests that there no decisions they could have made that would have been better then TJ and Brandon and Maddie. I disagree.But, the team is bringing a knife to a gun fight for the next 2 years with the penalty. There is no way that they could fill every hole on the team, trade up to draft the franchise QB. Something had to give. It appears as though backup safety was a gamble they were willing to make.
