    which players would you cut to upgrade the backup QB spot?

    Gradkowski cap hit year 1-3 : 1.2 / 1.8 / 1.8
    Fitzpatrick cap hit year 1-2 : 2.875 / 4.125

    young teams, with young QBs can afford expensive backups (cassel to ponder, fitzy to locker, hasselbeck (3.5) to luck)

    if your QB gets banged up as much as ben its definitely worth investing in, imagine we didnt have to rush ben back into the lineup the last few times hes been hurt? Hes tough but he doesnt come back from injury well

    They were hoping dixon could be that guy, now they are jones can be that guy. In the mean time they are ****ed

    so where do you find the 1.5-2.5 million extra you need to sign the back up you desire?

    contenders just don't have the cap space to do what you want. I think Gradkowski was a good choice given the cap space.

    Aren't we about $4.5 million under the cap?

    see my roll over thread....

    and we didn't have that space during free agency... we had to wait for Colon cap reclaim to clear June 1.

    Obviously Gradkowski isn't winning any superbowls, I'm just saying I like him better than Batch and Leftwich..

    If Ben is less than 70% or out of the game.. We lose.. Two years in a row has shown that..

    Ben needs to keep himself healthy and get rid of the ball. He needs to trust his receivers and not his scrambling.

    He needs to play 16 games in decent health

    If Ben goes down

    Ben and Troy need to have a solid year with no injuries.

    Don't hold your breath on Troy. He may be done.
