Bad Move Was hoping to see johnson retire where his career began we lost the only mentor our young Qb's had to learn from and pretty much the only veteran leadership on that offense outside of Matt Birk

No. This is a thread keeping track of the NEW players we sign, and the players that we release.

We have some young Talent/depth But it would be nice to bring in a more Proven Guy to be The Nickel back just dont know who yet... either way IMO cornerback isnt a huge concern

1 and 2 would be Winfield and Griffin, but adding a vet would be nice.

You can't account for injuries that happen during the preseason or regular season. You can have 5 solid cornerbacks on your team, and 3 of them can get injured in one game.

I don't think CB gets addressed early (unless of course someone like Revis or
Hall is there for our 2nd pick..and then it'd be iffy).

Devonte Edwards is a very under appreciated CB..and for nickel he's more than capable, I'd actually have no problem with him at the #2 spot if either Griffin or Winfield couldn't start for a game or 2...he's that ready.
As far as the Dime back (where a rookie would contest for playing time) Whittaker and Charles Gordon are certainly capable and both can play special teams. I think we have 6 or 7 CB's on the roster ...1 is all world 2 are young and on their way to being dominant...and 3 are good enough to not have to bring in high priced talent or waste a high draft pick on.
With Whittle moving on, I'd love to see us grab a RG....there's 3 guys I'd love
to see start next year at RG...all 3 have good hands, decent feet and sound technique. They're not going to be mistaken for Hutch....but few are. And let's drop the dead weight now (Artis Hicks / Marcus Johnson) while we still get a portion of their salaries back to sign one of the RG F/A's.
...and the more I hear about Kevin Curtis' situation...I think our #1 guy who we should attack in the market should be Kearny. If we're not going to go after many guys...let's make the ones we do sign impact players at impact positions. Kearny has a history of being hurt, but when he's healthy he's the kind of monster that has my kids waking up in the middle of the night screaming.

there are a few reports out there that has us having the inside track to former colts CB Nick Harper, id love to bring him in and compete with griffin for the starting job, thatd be three solid quality starting CB's with a couple of young talented guys under them

We’re planning on getting reaction from Shiancoe and Ciurciu so the fun isn’t over for today. Far from it. Ciurciu, as mentioned previously, is a special teams guy.
