Here is some great info from NetRat reagrding if the Lions were to trade Roy. Saves 1.642 million in cap, BUT -- don't forget, the Lions would be getting at least a first in return, right? The initial salary of that player would wipe out the savings and more, plus:
Get this, the salary cap hit next year for a first round draft pick this year would be about the same as the Franchise tag for Roy. No savings there either. "
This is just one more thing the Lions are looking at when it comes to trading Roy. Which would you rather have, if the cost is the same: A Pro-Bowl WR or a first round draft pick? (made by the Detroit Lions.)
The question is close to rhetorical, but please feel free to respond still anyways. LOL --
Don't forget to read the other two posts I put on this weekend, plus all the grat comments on that last 3 or 4. Likely nothing more out of me until Monday...which is only what, half an hour away? Wow. Tomorrow then!
