Not when you consider that Wilson's cap hit is $600k. Wilson, Flynn and a 2nd round QB (Wilson #2?) strike me as a very strong QB group for $9 million total cap space. Moving forward, Flynn's cap space can be used for Wilson and/or the developmental guy.

Obviously I would give a lot for that to be true and Wilson has done a great job of protecting himself on slides. I simply think our defense and running game are too good for us to risk a 2011 Colts debacle.

I felt like he was talking about the draft at that point, and the potential #3 QB. I would not feel comfortable going with just Wilson and a rookie. Teams like veteran backups because they can be ready to come in without taking a lot of snaps away from the starter, and I want Wilson to get as many snaps as possible this next preseason.
