I think Peppers was a FA and Marshall was two 3rd round draft picks.
I want to go out like my Grandpa did. Peacefully in his sleep.

They also gave up their 1st in '09 and ''10 plus a 3rd in '09 and received a 5th in the Cutler deal.
The loss of those picks, in part, perpetuated the need to get some of these other guys in there to help Cutler win.

With all the high end contracts and lack of picks they had to fill the balance of the roster with low end salary players that COULD have been picks that would have probably given them a stronger overall 53.

This is also why we shouldn't chase big name FAs.

Stick with the nobodies.
