But they can ill afford to loose that draft pick next year, and Love will be on an expiring contract in two years and he might glean a first round pick.

Now, it's time to try to jettison those top-heavy contracts and let the re-build begin.
Altman is a genius if he can figure out a way to dump the JR, TT, Hill and Clarkson contracts.

Unfortunately, Love is at the lowest point in his career value-wise, so as Joe suggested they may get their best value holding him and hoping him getting the ball more and being the focus of the offense bolsters his numbers and value to a trade deadline move. That however, is a risk given his recent injury history.

Hopefully, they can rebuild it without a Browns level historic tanking. I lived through the Stepien years. This can't be worse.
