No team gets to the next level, especially after residing in the cellar, without a little wheeling, dealing and well-calculated gamble.
That's what Fisher has always done, and sometimes it pays off and sometimes it doesn't. He took on "Pacman" Jones, Albert Haynesworth, Cortland Finnegan and now Janoris Jenkins.
Sometimes things don't work out, like with Jones and Haynesworth. Sometimes they're home runs like Finnegan, who was drafted in the seventh round of the 2007 draft and is now one in the top tier of cornerbacks in the league.
Jenkins has a lot of off-the-field baggage, but they got him with a second-rounder, and he easily could've been a player to be taken in the top 10. Fisher and company made sure they turned their No. 2 pick into a package of players that could help all over the field instead of just taking a player No. 2 overall. It's those kind of calculated risks that turn a team around.
