Old rookie scale to hurt Lions ???


Just something I was thinking about but was not sure how to address untill I knew what the new salary cap would be. Now that it is in place, you can look to the Jets as foresight on a possible future problem. Mark Sanchez said he was willing to take a pay cut to get his FA's under contract on his team. That being said, did we draft high at the wrong time ? Getting the # 1 and 2 overall pick in the draft, over two years may hurt us going forward. Sanchez actually said he was willing to cut his pay and mentioned how he would expect others like Revis to do the same for the team. Would Suh and Stafford be willing to do that with the giant hit the new, lower cap takes ? I know we are not in huge trouble now. But with CJ needing a new contract, future draft picks and still plenty of positions that will need to be replaced or just plain filled in our back seven as well as 0-Line, we might just be in trouble cap wise in a year our two. I know there is plenty of fat to be trimmed, especially at WR on our team. That still does not make up for probley 5 starters that we actually need on our team. Just wanted to hear your thoughts.
