Well, I wouldn't. I don't disagree that those 2 have been more effective lately, but I think Reed is more talented and worth waiting for. he may be starter quality if he develop those secondaries.
I really had Crain and Thornton in mind (their contract may be up too, not sure). I'd keep JOnes and Reed.
