    Hurney says a lot more to come in free agency

    Luke would probably be the best candidate. We shouldn't even consider touching KK's deal. If he doesn't bounce back he should be a cap casualty next year.

    Yeah, this makes me VERY nervous. This is exactly how we ended up in cap hell during his first tenure.
  3. I know we really value Larsen's versatility as a backup because he can fill in any of the three interior OL spots but I also think you have to play your best five OL and I can't be convinced that GVR is better than Larsen. If we sign or draft an upgrade at LG, then keep Larsen in that versatile backup spot but of we don't then play him at LG and if an injury forces an OL reshuffle then it is what it is, but don't wait for an injury to force you to play a better player.
  4. I think Moore, Jackson, and Thomas are all three gonna be studs. I don't necessarily mean perennial All-Pros but definitely "good starter" types. We'll see on the rest of the class.
  5. Norman was/is a subpar NFL athlete and I used to always argue with people on here about that when he was here. The guy had superb ball skills and instincts though and that's why he was an elite zone CB but struggled playing man. A marginal athlete can still excel in a zone system that allows him to sit back and make the most of his instincts and ball skills, but in man coverage there's just nowhere to hide that lack of athleticism.

    Byrd has joined a different flock

    I wish him nothing but the best but it was time for us to move on. He filled a niche back in the "twin towers" error (uh... I mean "era") as the token speed guy but with Moore and Samuel on the roster we're more in need of a token size guy.

    Around the league FA moves

    Veteran minimum? LOL! He's still a good player hes just no longer the disruptive force he used to be. He'd go for considerably more than vet min.

    If Short doesn't bounce back this season we need to have this same thought process next year.
  9. Definitely not a fan of drafting marginal NFL athletes that you're going to try to move to a position they're not familiar with on the 3rd round. Those are late round flier types of picks. If that 6th rounder doesn't pan out, oh well. He was a 6th round pick. But those mid-round picks are where you have to build the meat of your roster. You're not going to to have a roster of all 1st or 2nd round picks. You have to hit more often than not on those 3rd rounders.
  10. You're making a ton of assumptions. I think you just want to bitch and moan, so don't let me stand in your way of doing it.
  11. 100% agreed. The only position changes that seem to have a decent degree of success from the college to NFL level are OT to OG and DE to 3-4 OLB. Safety and CB are very different positions with very different responsibilities. If it was an easy transition you'd see a lot more aging CBs slide over to S to extend their careers.
  12. Did you actually watch the video clip?
  13. I'd feel differently of we were trying to move him from a position he'd played previously to a new position. This is the opposite. We're moving him back to the position he played in college after he failed in the new position that we tried him at as a rookie. It's a difficult enough transition to the NFL without also trying to learn a new position at the same time. Gaulden very well may not end up working out, but we haven't given the kid a fair shot yet. I see this as actually doing that.
  14. We cut Hall before his second season after he was a 3rd round pick. I didn't want Hurney back, but he's here so I'm going to try to give him a fair shot.
  15. This. Moving him to S was a failure, so give him a shot at his more natural position. The guy is on a cheap rookie contract for three more seasons. This is only a mistake if we're treating this move as THE solution at nickelback.
