Hixon agreeing to terms with Panthers today...

Gettleman is really holding true to using free agency to fill holes so that we can go BPA in the draft. I like it. Would like to see a veteran olinemen join the fray and maybe a space eating DT but I think those signings are coming. Might be after the draft though.

Decent FA signings, they're definitely going to have to trim some fat somewhere though.

Why is it a facepalm to hope a guy who showed solid to great potential still gets his chance?

He'll get his shot at the start of camp just like all our other scrubs. You need to let go of any hope that he makes the team though. He's pretty much a guaranteed cut at this point, baring an amazing showing.

Fua will probably eventually be released, but we're likely just keeping him around for training camp.

Wide Receiver is still a huge need but I think Smith, LaFell, and Hixon (with Newton at quarterback) is better than whatever we have on the offensive line, our secondary, and our defensive tackle spot (we still need someone who can consistently stuff the run game and control the LOS because Edwards isn't that guy).

Actually forgot about the Ginn signing as well. I'm not expecting anything out of him as a WR but he still forces defenses to think about the deep ball whenever he's on the field.

Gettleman is slowly but surely improving this roster. I attribute this to bettering our depth and the bottom half of our roster like he said he would.

How can we not expect a better product next season? Already the best FA period in years, ad even we, the disenfranchised huddles are able to see the workings of an actual plan by someone that actually has the abilities to pull it off. it's getting pretty damn exciting around here all of a sudden.

We still lack a sorely needed dominant receiving weapon, a RG, another DT, and about 3 starters in the secondary.

Well someone had to do it.

When we get those things, Ill join you, however.

See Ryne Robinson, Kerry Colbert, (Insert name of training camp/preseason wonder that was loved on the Huddle). Guys who show get contracts. Guys who show potential get walking papers.

I don't think it's as dire a situation as it was 3 weeks ago. Our secondary isn't tops but it ain't terrible. We can duct tape a few positions ths year and still be damn competitive and a threat. It's ok to be happy once in awhile.
