Slay is 32. How long would he be here?
If I felt like we were going to be in a position to challenge this year, I can see it but otherwise, I feel like the money can be better spent in other places.
I feel the same way about LBs Wagner (32) and David (33).
Would signing any of these guys make our defense better? Yeah, probably. It would also require a lot of money and take snaps away from younger players - players who will still be here in a couple of years.
Unless, of course, we all feel like Howell is going to jump from a 1-game Rookie straight to Pro Bowl QB (not impossible but also not to be expected, especially with also learning a new offense).
Granted, I'm looking beyond this season too, which is a luxury I have as a fan that this coaching staff likely doesn't feel like they have with the impending change in ownership.
