    With our draft spot and as you said depth at edge and lack of it at dl I have expected dl in the first for awhile now.

    Edit: I thought we would and wanted us to go dl first round last year as well.

    This guy gets it.
    Y’all keep talking about not getting rid of defensive pieces to get new defensive pieces but last years defensive pieces SUCKED.
    Butler was decent but how much longer will that last at his age?
    If you ask me who would you prefer starting, Roberson and Butler or JJ Watt and Borders, I will take pass rush every time.

    I wouldn't mind Watt, but I don't want to give up anything for a CHANCE at him.

    1) I'm not sure he'd come here unless it was his only choice.
    2) He's had 1 good season in the last 5 years.

    Totally different cases. White never had a decline in his late twenties to early thirties and didn’t have the injury issues. This example is more like comparing Andrew Luck to Tom Brady. If Watt can be productive and come at a reasonable figure based on his last several years, then by all means bring him on. The best option is a blend f veteran FA and young gun draft pick. BUT... JR has shown me nothing in his ability to get the right FA over the last two years ( speaking of edge help here).
