It's not a move to contend. It's just a different way to rebuild. Right now we're organizationally weak at center. Benn would fill that hole for the next decade. You'd then be able to build around him.

I expect we'd recoup some 1sts by trading Jbo, Iggy and Kipper over the next few years. Benn allows us to do that and remain competitive at the same time.
