love it, he's played in the system and played under Joe Barry. Great Signing.

I think with these trades and signings theyre leaning towards taking a QB, theyve upgraded at their 2 biggest Positions of Need, DE/OT where Gaines/Thomas seem to not be really viable options any more, Quinn or a trade is looking real good right now.

DE is still a need with another open spot unless we plan on starting edwards but i do like the signing

03-03-2007, 06:46 PM
Very, very good signing.

Adams is still very much an option, and he's still probably the #1 option. I can't see us expecting Kalimba Edwards to be a full-time defensive end this year.

As for the White signing, I like it. I think it was too many years, but considering the market, the price was relatively cheap.

This sucks for the Titans

was it really cheap? 5 years 29 million sound steep, but after some of the other amounts FA's are getting this year, it isn't too bad.

If the guy can play and be productive in the system I don't think it is overpaying at all. The FA pool seems pretty shallow and we need players that can play the cover 2. He can do it and I think it is a good deal. He should be able to fill the void left by James Hall.

Seems like a lot of money, but he knows Marinelli's system, so it should turn out alright.

We still need a DE though.

I really like our off-season so far. If we get Vilma I think Millen sins have to be forgiven.

03-03-2007, 11:33 PM
vilma is a reach but so far millen has been doing a great job

03-04-2007, 03:23 PM
Yep. With or without the Vilma trade (although I hope "with"), I have a feeling that the draft will be outstanding.

03-04-2007, 04:25 PM
Things are looking up. I still think we have to go DE but it may not as big of a need as we once though.

What a great signing.
