Re: CB Xavien Howard... should we?

I would. Howard is an above average cornerback @ a position of need. This would be an ideal scheme fit for him and Kris Richard is a hell of a secondary coach.

I have very little faith in Ken C., PRob & PJ on an island for 4 quaters & I don't think Keith Washington will be given much of an opportunity.

At least make the call.

Iíd send a 1st for him. Itís a coin toss between him and Jalen Ramsey for the top spot.

No way would I trade a 1st. We could be flirting with a top 10 pick next year with Ian Book being the only QB under contract and more roster trimming to get under the cap.

Who was our first this year

Definitely pull the trigger for a shut down corner
Over an unknown commodity

Outside of the Bucs playoff loss
Every one has come down to our defense not making a stop

Agree with this.

Proven guy over the unknown. The Draft is a crapshoot Ö specifically at QB.

Letís not forget the Saints were trying to make moves and go up in the draft for Jaycee Horn a few months ago.

Yes, Brother Smash, as I got the head's up and watched Matt's show on YouTube Friday; I'm asking the forum rhetorically at what price?

And that's the consideration I'm for which I'm looking...

Now granted, Xavien just turned 28 and has probably three good years of elite, experienced CB play left in him...

But would he be worth a Top 10 pick when the real Jameis Winston shows up?
