I think that's not improving our team either now or down the road.
I would keep Powell and the 4th, but if you could get 9 mill of cap room by trading a player who is guaranteed 7.75 mill and is recovering from one of the worse injuries a WR could sustain, throwing in Wilson in the last year of his contract is worth it.
he is keeping Cro and wants to keep Revis (assumed since he is not mentioned) with those two guys making 24mill in 2014, do you think wilson is going to be re-signed- I don't. So you lose him for a year. The kid you picked up from detroit would have beaten him out this year IMO.
