That certainly could be the better path. I don't think Payne would be a bad pickup necessarily but it is riskier. He wouldn't be the first and certainly wouldn't be the last to cash in and either half ass it or just not live up to expectations away from where he made his name. I'm not saying that's what will happen, just that it could.Big time. Which is why I’d prefer going after Hargrave. He’s 29, but that means you should be able to get him on a 2-3 year deal. Beyond that, he’s been nothing short of consistent and can also play both DT spots. I think he’s the better player too so that helps. Give me the guy with the proven track record who also won’t require the long term commitment / risk. I think Hargrave should be able to keep his level of play up for at least 2-3 more seasons which fits the Bears window (playoffs in 2024, SB in 2025).
As for McGlinchey, I’d be in on him for around 11-12 mil per season for 2-3 years.
