...how comfortable are you with leaning on Charles Godfrey again?

 

How does Robert Lester fit into the equation?

Godfrey is going to have to restructure that deal. I'd be ok with him and Mitchell as the two safetys but not on that current contract. He is getting paid good money for average safety play

A WHOLE PIE!

Godfrey will be gone.  I don't think it's even a question.  We could get 3 Godfrey's for what Hurney paid and save like 5.1 by releasing him.

If Godfrey's back, I think he and Mitchell will do well.  According to the cap simulator, we can save something like $7 million by cutting him...

 

I didn't think he was terrible.  He did make some plays.  Often times he was out of position because he was covering for another terrible safety we used to have.  Maybe he and Mitchell can do some good together so long as Mitchell is resigned.

Mitchell better be back! Lester has shown that he can play. I'm not sure why both Lester and Klein were given less opportunity down the stretch. Do I think Lester is a starter? Probably not but he def deserve more snaps than this. Lester has shown that he's already better than Godfrey fo sure tho.

 

But, this is why we should go with "Calvin Pryor" at no28.

Mitchell can and should be retained.

Godfrey stunk. Don't need to restructure him. Just part with him. He will be coming off a bad injury as well.

Just bring in the 2014 equivalent of Mikell. Rent someone

Lester blew the coverage on Boldin 50 yard catch and missed the tackle on Gore's 40 yard run...

He also messed up on a Kendall hunter 20 yard run

If he gets the same amount of pressure Mitchell was afforded this year and can come back from the injury without major setback, Godfrey won't represent any drop off. That's a lot of "ifs" though. Really it will come down to $$$.

 

Lester is an unknown, but I'd be cautious to leave it up to an unknown.
