That said, I'm not sold on Madden. I'd be looking for a player who plays exactly the role he has typically played, but someone younger and faster. I think he's done at this point. Considering the options, I don't really think it's in the cards this year.

Good point above on the contract limit as well. Better to save for a need, especially with the defense corps in the shape that it's in. Does the 50 man limit refer to players currently under contract? I.e. - if someone gets bought out they no longer occupy a spot amongst the 50?
You can't buy a player out in midseason, so its a moot point.
