Because basically there is no superior alternative we can afford.I cant understand all the love for DHall? Is this the same guy who ppl scream about all yr, and because he steps up his game for 2-3 games at the end of the yr we are going to keep him around now? The same guy who gets burned routinely? The same guy who is good for atleast 1 REDICULOUS personal foul per yr (getting in refs face this yr, throwing refs flag last yr)? The same guy who even admitted last yr that he wasnt earning his paycheck?
Did he play better in the end of the yr? Yes..... but in fairness he couldnt have played worse. Yea he said he would restructure, but do you really expect him to take a paycut? I expect him to offer to convert his salary into a bonus (meaning he is still getting paid). He is routinely year after year rated the WORST CB in the league. If DHall was playing for free, then I would welcome him back....actually, I might require him to pay us for paying him a ton of cash and underperforming yr after yr.
Now, for those of you about to yell "You are going to cut our best CB for who?" First off, Wilson is better then Hall. Better ranked, and has been better ranked at every stop in his career. He was out of position this yr and last yr and he is best suited against the slot receiver, but I would still argue that he's better then Hall. also, if we do cut Hall I hope there is a pla in place.
My plan: would be to
a) sign (1) of Talib or Smith. (I dont think we can afford both).
b) Extend Wilson to lower his cap # this yr
c) Draft the best available CB in the 2nd round, use our 3rd on a safety.
I would feel much more confident going into next yr with Talib/2nd Rounder/Wilson/Griffin/Crawford....but hey just my opinion.
