Bruce Campbell and James Dockery are today's updates. Will the injured with some potential arise from the ashes?

There is value to every player on the team this year, as there should be for every team that goes 12-5. I would love to keep Lafell at the right price, because you do make valid points. The problem is do you pay this guy 2M at the age of 27-28? Probably, but not on a team that has the needs we have, the cap situation, and the deep receiving draft. Ginn doing as well as he did show that it is possible to bring someone in that would be better. Take that 2M, draft 2 receivers and get a FA and I like our chances at finding someone who will produce more just as Ginn did.

I can see us keeping Dockery, at least until the 53 man cut. He's cheap, big, and needed. It's going to help that Captain might ask for too much.

I like what I have seen out of the limited snaps that we've seen from Dockery.  The problem is that he's much like the rest of our defensive backfield: He has some decent measurables and OK athletic ability, but is not quite starting material. There's just a little something missing.  I may be jumping the gun, but most of our guys' ceilings seem to be as back-ups.  

 

Sounds like I am talking myself into placing a premium on a shutdown corner in the draft. ***cough cough*** What the hell am I doing?

LOL, I forgot Bruce Campbell was still on our roster... sure would be nice if he decided to live up to his potential some day.

I think "can Bruce play?" is the more appropriate question at this point, LOL

Bruce Campbell being a must sign ahead of LaFell, it's obvious that he can play. Facepalm.

Good point. So...we posted a player who was on injury all year a better re-sign than someone who actually produced numbers and started in all the games?! All be it Lafell didn't meet expectations but he still contributed and was a part of the 12-5 season. I'm losing faith in this report, quickly.

Obvious based on what? 

 

He was a turnstile in Oakland, did I miss something?

He looked at least half-decent in limited action with us before getting hurt.

 

Honestly, too small a sample to say anything definitive though.

I know Lafell hasn't lived up to his hype, but he has much more experience than some listed. #20 is a little too harsh.

 

I would rather have Florence over Dockery for his veteran presence alone.

I agree, I see those at 10+ are pretty much non contributors and non re-signs. Lafell and Florence arent sure no's, especially if we can resign them to under 1M, that is a great value. DG is all about getting good value. I will read the rest of the list as it comes out but I will take it for what it's worth.

Didn't they play him as a guard in Oakland?
