Hit me like a freight train!!!

I was over at the Revenge of the birds, the Cardinals blog, reading an article about the possibility of them acquiring Joey Porter given his latest statement of wanting to go to them or San Diego or San Fransisco. When a simple comment hit me like a train. The Cardinals were in the top eight teams in the NFL this year, which means with no new CBA they can only make one FA signing excluding their own players. So what does that mean? It means that to allow themselves to make any other FA signing they would have to trade for Porter instead of waiting to sign him if we release him. With the new rules of FA signings you can make one signing over $5 million but anything else has to be an in house signing. So if they needed two players they would sign one and have to trade for the other.

The CBA is working in our favor in this because any other year and Porter would get us maybe a 7th, but most likely nothing; however the CBA is driving his value up to the poing that some of the people over there stated they would gladly accept Porter and Thigpen for Anquan. That is huge compared to what value we have been projecting getting for Porter so far.

So what are your thoughts does the CBA make it where we can actually trade Porter for value or does it not make any difference at all and we just release him?
