You missed Kiwi at DE for us and you missed Weatherford as our new punter. Tynes has been very good for us the last 2 years as well. I don't know what oft injured 3rd year S you meant. Phillips had the one injury and is a full year back from it now. On the OL we'll probably not starting any rookies or soph's. This will be Beatty's 3rd year. What's wrong with having a FA OL? Baas was probably the best FA C out this year and he's certainly an upgrade over O'Hara. Otherwise that could have been a lot worse.
You have no leverage in trade talks. Osi's clearly disgruntled.
No way that would happen. Osi has be more productive then Shockey, and we got a 2 and 5 for him. Granted that's a different team, GM, and market, but a 4th is no where near what I'd give for someone with double digits sacks AND NFL record for force fumbles.
That's not bad, though I would rather have a 2nd, but I wonder what reese would think about that. It's not the pick you'd want, but you are getting a TE which could help. It would be interesting to see if we are trying to "settle" for a 2, since we can't get a 1, which is probably the best possible case. Ideally, I am guessing we are looking for a 2. I am curious to see what we'd do if that offer was made for Osi.
I'm upset about Chase. He was one of our best special team players.
I am not that fussed about Chase, we need guys for more than just special teams, we have plenty of young talent at LB who will do a good job on specials teams, there just isn't enough roster sports.
I am impressed with the young LB talent we have this year, so I am hoping quality play emerges (much like our WR group when Plax/Toomoer left). I think our LB play has potential but needs to take it to the next level. If Goff and Sintim can step up for example, it looks much better.
Greg Jones and Mark Herzlich will be pushing for playing time earlier rather than later, both are the instinctive style of LB we badly need.
Williams and Tracy have some good physical tools, Tracy may get some reps at SLB, he looked good early last year.
Williams is more of a developmental guy, but thats ok being behind Boley.
