    yep, then we can go after Johnson since Wootton is gone. Now that would be a FA splash. LOL. I would be shell shocked and never been in a war zone so.......

    IF they get 1 do they really need to shed themselves of Wootten? I mean all things considered he did good last year, asides from his recovery I think if they can swing it why not? Wootten, Bennett, and Johnson switching it up could be nice....but then DT help I guess comes from draft? Paea and Cohen is our only DTs atm?

    Can't keep Pep anyway without a major pay cut. And he has zero motivation to accept that right now as the only real DE on the roster. If Emery is truly making a major push at FA DEs, then Pep is as good as gone IMO. 2014-Peppers doesn't appear to be in the teams plans from the way it looks right now.

    What makes you feel Wootton isn't coming back?

    We aren't signing Bennett and Johnson. No way to pay for that. It's one or the other or neither. Wootton will be a wait-and-see thing. He's not going to command much $ coming off a 3 sack season and still recovering from surgery. No other team is chomping at the bit to sign him. I hope they eventually keep him but he's a 2nd-3rd stage FA decision.

    I dont know if he will or will not be back but he is not signed. I could see another team overpaying for him as he is young. I like Wootton and would like to see him back but suspect he is pushing for bigger money than we will pay. Guess we will have to see what the market is for him and decide from there. If we get Bennett I could see Seattle making a run at him. He is versatile DT or DE and I feel somebody will give him 6 to 7 million and we will not match it.

    Interesting ^^^

    The numbers are gonna be the main decision-maker for him as they should be but maybe if he's got two very similar offers, it tips the scales a little bit our way.
