What is Az worth???
Do we pay him for next year, or try to find someone to replace him??

with proehl retiring, i say keep him unless he starts demanding too much. Bruce should be retiring soon too and that could bump Holt and Az to 1-2.
The main thing is to spend some time working on Az to make sure he's up to it...i.e. fumble-itis
Assign Az long term...
Ditto through and through w/DJRamfn. For some players maturity is actually detrimental, probably not for AzHakim. I'd like to see him retire as a Ram wizard.
I agree I love this kid!!!
How can we afford him though with Bruce an Holt on the roster and needing to think about signing Fletcher, Pace (soon), Little, at least one more d-end.
Az is going to be a tough sell I think :-(

i'm confident with the front office guys, they'll make it work.
His speed makes him likeable to Martz so it probably won't be that tough a sell, but if the Chiefs throw in the big bucks, it would make things interesting.

As to Az, the trouble is that the biggest need to complement Bruce and Holt (assuming they stick around a while) is the need Proehl is filling -- the consummate possession WR, the money-hands guy that will get those 7 yards on third and 6 every time. Az's hands still make me nervous. I like the trade-off between Az's big play potential and risk of drop, but not on 3rd down. I think it will be more important to replace Proehl and go fish for a speed burner in the draft to eventually replace Az.

Ack! What do you mean by "soon"? I would hope Ike has at least 3-5 years left in the tank. He's only 29 and playing at a level that's arguably the best WR in football. I think that with his work ethic he could play deep into his 30s. (please?)
