Thinking Towards Next Season: Who Is Safe?

39 posts in this topic

I remember Rivera saying in a presser a week or two ago that each team usually only has about 3 to 5 guys who are guaranteed starters going into each season... I could be wrong on that exact number, but it was fairly low.

I started thinking, in our franchises history, it seems we have about 10+ guys every year who are guaranteed starters before the season even starts.

With that in mind, who do you think is safe going into next season? Which guys deserve their spot and shouldn't have to compete with a draftee or free agent for it?

I'm telling you I think I heard Rivera put McDermott on notice in his press conference. he said he was evaluating both the players and the coaches.

I'd like them to keep the current DTs for next year and avoid using a high pick on one

I know he's not a lock, but I was really impressed with Frank Kearse... hell, even Shirley was OK.

Not saying we will clean house in the secondary, but the only one that should truly be safe is Gamble.
