Honey badger?

Currently, This guy has drug related issues....what's going to happen when he has buku's of cash at his disposal?

I wouldn't take a chance but that's just me

And Munnerlyn is replaceable. So if he wants to be paid like a starter. Whatever

no way both gamble and munnerlyn go.

that's what I'm thinking as well.

I'm not worried about losing both. i think we're more likely to keep both than lose both, but i don't really see that happening either.

either guy is replaceable easily enough. doesn't mean we should or makes sense to replace both. we need some consistency back there.

Captain was ranked the 2nd worst RCB at the start of the season.

And he was ranked dead last in 2011

or bottom 5 depending on your metrics

And 2012 (sort by SC or TF or pretty much any stat on this page) was pretty poor

He is undersized and not a good tackler. I like watching him because he brings energy but just isn't that good.

If you run DeAngleo like he is Jerome Bettis (plays and situations)....he wouldn't be good.

Captain has been asked to be more than he is and away from what he does out of desperation. He is a good nickel....bad #2 CB.

I'm not convinced he is a good nickel either. His stats reflect playing time at both over the years.

Captain was a good bargain for a 7th round pick, but will not be sorely missed. If Gamble comes back or we sign/draft a starter, remember we still have Josh Thomas and Josh Norman, along with the other guy who played well last season. We aren't really hurting for someone to play nickel as much as we are a #1 shutdown guy.

Gambles not getting any younger and would make a great bargaining chip while freeing up cap-space. Gettlemen seems to be interested in nyg wrs. Maybe theres a trade package in there somewhere?
