We Are Still Going To The SB
Although there will probably be picks exchanged during this week’s draft, player trades remain a rarity in the N.F.L., especially compared with other sports. Executives and agents say the primary factor is the challenge of plugging a player into a specific system and the time it takes for a player to become acclimated to a new system and a new playbook.

But in football, a linebacker in a 3-4 alignment may not play as effectively in a 4-3. A receiving tight end could be ill-suited for a team that requires its tight end to assume significant blocking responsibilities. A cornerback specializing in man-to-man coverage may become devalued in a zone defense.
With free agent market pretty much dried up if we cut or trade some of the players you mention, we currently have no suitable replacements as of this moment. With the exception of maybe Bess. The draft could dictate what happens with a few, such as Daniel Thomas, and John Jerry..
Richie is not getting Cut,
Starks is not getting cut, and no team is going to trade for a 30 Year Old DT, who's owe close to 9 million guaranteed..
I don't see what incentive we could gain by cutting Odrick or why another team would want to trade for him since he hasn't perform they way everybody expects him to yet.
Now depending on if we draft a good corner who shows sign of providing immediate impact, I could see R. Marshall or Patterson getting cut..
And I don't know how comfortable I would feel about going into the season with a roookie kicker with our schedule..
