    Meh, neither "retirement" is that weird.  I say "retirement" because as far as I know, Martin never actually turned in his paperwork to retire.  Houston was an aged vet in the twilight of his career trying to make a comeback.  My guess is that he simply saw that he could no longer hang or realized he no longer had the desire and hung up his cleats.  Nothing to be ashamed of there.  Jonathan Martin.. well, he's Jonathan Martin and that horse has been beat to death.  Nothing more needs to be said.

    Even if Ealy doesn't pan out, I'm not all that concerned about DE right now.  Plenty of good reports on Frank Alexander and Mario Addison.  I'm just hoping we didn't throw away a 2nd round pick.  Though, the Hurney years should have made me numb to that particular blunder.

    The conundrum of training camp.  Does this guy/unit just suck, or is that guy/unit really that awesome?

    Disappointing about Ealy.  We have a really good defensive coaching staff and he has one of the best DEs in the league in terms of technique to learn from in CJ.  If he can't "get it" in Carolina, then it just boils down to a scouting error.

    For the record, Britt allowed 41 QB hurries last season.  That was the 2nd most in the NFL.  I'm just going to assume that Bryon Bell allowed the most.

    Wasn't overly impressed with Ealy as a rookie and the reports out of camp haven't been positive.  Wasn't a fan of the pick at the time, but I just keep reminding myself that it wasn't until year three that CJ and Hardy really emerged.

    Gettleman isn't going to panic 4 days into training camp.  If Oher gets abused like a ragdoll in the first preseason game, then I think we'll be open to some additional possibilities.  Jake Long is currently unemployed for a reason.  He's probably wanting a lot of money and he probably wouldn't mind missing out on training camp as an added bonus.  Somebody around the league will get hurt or some team will realize the answer isn't on the roster and he'll eventually get a call from a team willing to put enough money on the table to get him off the couch.  Maybe that team will be us and maybe it won't.  I wouldn't bet much money on it.

    We really don't know how Gettleman will approach free agency in the future.  We know how he's approached it while we've been relatively cap strapped with contracts that need to be shed, but I wouldn't necessarily just assume that is how he will always approach free agency.
    With that said, if Okung did hit the open market, I wouldn't expect us to be major players in that sweepstakes.  A plug and play top 10 LT in the prime of his career?  He'll get PAID.

    They probably won't restructure Lynch.  With his age and number of carries, he's due to fall off a cliff in production any day now.

    They can structure it to make it work.  Lynch's contract will probably be dropping off in two years anyway.  He's 29 and everyone knows what happens to RBs at 30.

    I'd love it, but probably won't happen.  Elite QBs and elite LTs almost never hit the open market.

    Disappointing to hear about Ealy.  I didn't like the pick at the time but was hoping for the best.  Still am.

    I'm not a huge fan of having a starter at one position being the primary backup for another.  If something happened to Kalil, instead of just having to adapt to a new guy at C, the OL would have to adapt to two changes - new C and new RT.
    That's assuming that Remmers will be the starter at RT.

    Ginn is highly likey to be the 3rd or 4th WR on the depth chart.

    Unless we change our philosophy, I don't see how it makes sense to keep 6-7 WRs.  We rarely go 5 wide and Olsen is always in there on passing downs, so we rarely have more than 3 WRs on the field at a time.  If that remains the case, which I almost certainly think it will, keeping 6-7 WRs isn't a good move.
