That was Waynes two years ago. However, he's much improved now. He was an all around CB this year. Much better than Rhodes was. Rhodes has taken a step back. And if that continues next year and we let Waynes walk, we made a massive mistake IMO. Also, I dont think they drafted Hughes saying "yeah we'll let Waynes walk". He was BPA and there was the possibility of losing Waynes so they were covering their butts. I mean he allowed 1 TD all season this year. I'm not sure why anyone would complain about that. He was also 15th in yards allowed this year in the entire NFL. Nitpicking him "always being a step late" doesnt add up this year. I'd say that within his first two years but definitely not right now.fiestavike wrote: ↑Thu Jan 17, 2019 9:52 amI agree. They drafted Hughes for a reason. They need Wayne's cap room, and he's gone after this year either way, so it makes sense to get something for him. He's also nearly always a step late when targeted and lacks the aggression to ever take the next step. His guy is never wide open, but he's also almost never really covered against an accurate QB. If they could flip him for a 2nd to be used on a starting Guard or a replacement for Barr or Rudolph that would be awesome value.
