Where to spend the money

This is a hypothetical question for users in regards to asking where would you invest the money going forward. Itís a thought I had for fun. Assume (for
fun) that both players would stay healthy and play at the top level we have seen so far of their respective game. Who would you rather sign to a 5 year deal....Davenport or Williams?

Davenport, pressure on the QB makes the secondary better by default IMO.

Re: Where to spend the money

Since we are assuming both players will be healthy, the answer is Davenport. Good/great defensive ends are very difficult to come by, and although Williams is one of the best free safeties in the business, it is my belief that is not the best position to have one of the leagues top salaries.

Davenport and its not even close. Williams is very good and not yet in his prime but it is easier to find an equal player at saftey because he isn't a physical freak.

Davenport however posesses physical skill very rarly seen. He has a strength/speed combination that is freakish. Injuries has slowed down his progress so far but if he can stay healthy there is no reason whatsoever for 15+ sack seasons not being the norm for him.

I tend to agree on Davenport if healthy. Looking for some Williams support though.

I'm going to say Davenport, I hold my breath when Williams has to make an open field tackle (heck of a good cover safety though)

Re: Where to spend the money

I would rather spend the money on subtraction than addition. Use the money to get out of the bad contracts with Peat, Thomas, and Hill rather than letting the obligations haunt us for years to come with repeated restructurings until their cap number is $50 million each in 2030. If Davenport and Williams both leave, we get comp picks. Davenport cant stay healthy enough to be worth more than 5 million a year and he will cost more. Williams is a great safety on paper but doesnt seem to make the big impact plays in the big games, i prefer keeping CGJ and we cant keep both and have $30 million plus cap tied up in two safeties long term.

Especially since he's just getting to his prime years.
