Now this may sound stupid to some of you, but what if we were to replace our whole LB corps and trade both Ernie Sims and Julian Peterson for draft picks? See, getting a 3rd for each Peterson and Sims, while dropping Peterson's monster contract, would be of tremendous help to this rebuilding team. Wonder who we would get? How does Joey Porter and Antonio Pierce sound? These two guys have as much left in the tank as Peterson and Foote, and they will come at a cheaper price. We could then keep Levy at WLB, and possibly groom Follett to be our MLB in a year or two. I think Levy-Pierce-Porter is even better than the combination we have right now of Levy(or Sims)-Foote-Peterson. In such a deep draft class, we could get guys in the third round that would be first or second round talent in a previous draft.
Tell me what you think. It is just a thought, but I would love to see it happen.
