Most teams are game-planning and suiting up for their opponents on Sunday, that's three days away, they're not really looking to tinker with trading away starters on their roster. Face it, other teams are not likely going to just ship off an All Pro guard or defensive pass-rushing MVP, on the eve of the big opening game. Most of what's available will be injury prone, bargain basement, spare-parts players at best.
Aint that the truth. I personally dont think you could trade for anyone either without overpaying and we dont have enough draft choice left that we can afford to give away for guy thay will need at least 2-3 weeks to learn the playbook and fit in with the team to make a huge difference.

Big gamble rolling the dice this late. If it works out we make the playoffs; barely. If not it would have not worked out anyway so what else is there to do. At least we are trying.

I'm happy as hell he resigned I just wish the gave him more money this year and less next because what is the point of having cap room this year now?

All unused 2016 cap can be carried over to 2017. Having cap space in 2016 allows for additional moves now and later during the season.

If they can take the cap over its a great idea. Who knows what happens before deadline day. Maybe somebody starts the season bad and gets rid of a upcoming FA for a 2017 pick we would now have the cap space to jump in.

Always best to have options

We need this for next year because with just 23 million we are at the borderline of only being able to sign one two big FAs and the rest going to draft picks and small pieces.
