    IMO we could get a S off the street to "push" LT IMO. I suspected Fuller wasn't 100% and that was the reason we haven't seen as much of him. If we win a few more games this year we might be looking for a S in the first round of the draft. The kid from LSU might be a nice pickup.

    i think there is an excellent chance that we lose over 35 % of the roster next yr.................I also think that we will lose Henry and Brown...........AH and AJones................the latest is the team may really look to reshape themselves next yr..................with trades and cap room. I have heard that there is real concern about giving Henry a new deal with him being a strike away considering that VY really needs a strong run game to develop....................bringing in a vet RB like Taylor or Green on a two yr deal ..................also McGahee maybe free too............he is said to want out and wants no part of Buffalo.......to keep him they would have to tag him and I dotn know if they will do it.....................Greg and Shaun Ellis are out there too at DE and Adalius Thomas fits a 3-4 mold great but he has also played a 4-3 end and did it well.........................so is Nate Clemments.......................there will also be quite a few players let go from teams that one might not expect for cap reasons......................Mike Williams and Ricky Williams Dom Davis and even Robaire Smith are on that list........................Chris Samuels and Jon Jansen too are rumored to be out in Wash...................................

    normally there is about a 25% roster change, so 35% is not a stretch.

    and why would robaire be released for cap reasons? every indication was we were willing to give albert an extension, and now with this whole stomping thing it looks like we wont. that would easily open up robaire for an extension.

    Robaire wants to test the market once again..............he hit the lottery once and he knows the Titans wont offer him a deal like he got from Houston....................Somebody else might and he wants the chance..............the Titans tried to get him to sign a new deal the last two weeks and they were rebuffed.

    I would offer Robaire a 4yr 10-12 Million deal . It is possible that he could get 50% more than that on the market though...

    I hope someone doesn't give him another king's ransome...

    Well, we've got to keep at least a couple DTs on the team. Mahelona is here to stay, but long will be coming back from injury, and I don't think starks is in the best standing with the domestic issues. I think we'll keep one or the other of Albert or Smith.

    I just hope we get a DL guy either in the draft or FA who can really help make a difference. A stronger Dline helps defense SO Much!

    He'd probably get twice that much on the open market...

    I wondered about Mike Williams (DET)...I thought maybe he might be cast off from up there real soon and then maybe Norm doesn't have to stand up and pound the desk so much.

    Maybe the USC connection can spark us a little.
