Before you explode, read my rational after the jump...
1. I love CJ. He is my 2nd or 3rd favourite Titan behind Finny and maybe Verner.
2. CJ is amazing. If we had an experienced QB in his prime I would never trade him.
That being said...
CJ is now 26. Basically, he has 3 seasons left before he is no longer in his prime. We most likley are not winning the Super Bowl in the next 3 years now that we are going to develop Locker. Historically, QB's don't hit their stride until their 3rd or 4th year in the league.
So why have CJ on our team when we could probably get a king's ransome for him in a trade? Why waste his talents on a team that isn't going anywhere anytime soon?
We could pull a Dallas Cowboys circa 1989 trade and send CJ to a team for 2 number 1 draft picks, and at LEAST another 2nd rounder. At LEAST.
That would align our young talent with the career path of our franchise (Locker). With Locker and the picks obtained for CJ, we could build a deadly nucleus. We would be poised for a 2015+ title run, and maybe even a dynasty.
So now that you have heard my idea, please proceed to rip it to shreds. Because I know that is inevitable when dropping a bomb like this one on a fan website.
