I don;t think they can afford both Fowler and Littleton.

They can afford them, but it will cost them someone else. NRC & Weddle makes most sense.

I like cutting Weddle and Matthews better. Only $750k less than your scenario.

I’ll take Clay over NRC. I think Williams is really good.

That's the thing with these prove it deals. Fowler is proving to the point where we're probably not gonna be able to keep him.

OTOH, he and Ramsey seem tight, maybe that figures but i doubt it. Players want to get paid...

I don’t see Fowler breaking the bank. I could be wrong.
But... now that I look at top inside LB contracts... ouch. It’s gonna cost to keep Littleton.

I agree with most of that. Hoping you're wrong on Fowler and Littleton though.
