    As many as you can get! It's all about putting defenses in uncomfortable positions and creating mismatches wherever you can. Thats why even though we need certain things on defense, of a guy like Sammy Watkins were to miraculously fall to 14 I'd take him in a heartbeat.

    If Sammy Watkins fell and i mean IF he did (one could dream) but the following year do you sign Marshall or what?

    Great question...I guess that would depend on how he did as a rookie. I probably would sign Marshall to a 3 year deal. He'll be 31 at the beginning of that season, so the deal would have to make sense. We'd have about 14 million in cap room if everything were to stay the same(which it won't). It's a real scary offense. And a total pipe dream...but fun to imagine.

    With the loss of James Jones to the Raiders you have to think that Green Bay is quite possibly in the mix for Earl Bennett's services.

    Depending on how Watkins looked I'd probably let Marshal walk, Jeffery, Watkins, Wilson would be a hell of a nasty young core to build around.

    But like you said, total pipe dream.

    I don't think Marshall is going anywhere. Not with his still high level of play, his man-love with this offense and Jay Cutler in particular, and his recent comments demanding that he'll stay and it won't take top money.
