Would you release Suggs to sign Decker? Figure his cap number would be less in 2014 then the savings from Suggs. Rather move forward with Decker as a #1 than Torrey. Torrey is a great guy, but not a #1
I don't think those two decisions need to be related. I would release Suggs without question (releasing him includes extending him, as that is no different than releasing him and then re-signing him), and there is no doubt that the Ravens will not allow Suggs to return in 2014 unless he is at a different cap figure.
I do think using the saved cap money from releasing Suggs on Decker is a defensible option, though I'd probably prefer to just resign Suggs. If I can only choose one of Suggs or Decker, I'm taking Suggs.
I like Decker, but I'm not wild about him. I think Torrey is better, so if we can only pay one of those two, I'd much rather it be Torrey. If we can sign both, I think Decker's strengths do complement Torrey's quite well and they'd make a good tandem, but I wouldn't throw a $9-10M AAV deal at Decker. I think Torrey is worth more, so he's my big signing. If Decker ends up settling for a deal in the $7M AAV range, I'd go after him and hope to also sign Torrey to a deal in the $9M AAV range.
