    Would bringing back Mathieu and/or Kareem at the $ & years they signed for, relative to their production last year, been considered a win or an upgrade to last year? I mean, right now, we still got holes to fill because those two left but would it have satisifed, I guess, the fanbase if either one (or both) came back at their new salaries?

    You don't want your strong (or even free) safety trying to cover TY. You need CBs for that. None of the free agent corners are that good. At this point, I'd rather they go after Desir (Colt's CB), at least he used to cover TY at practice LOL.

    What they've done is improved their FS (already a strength), weakened their SS and haven't improved their CB. I'm not panicking I still think they win the division. But they just got worse on defense today/yesterday.

    It ain't my money so I would have loved bringing Honey Badger back. He came in to a new system and contributed immediately. Imagine how much he would improve after a year. Plus the guy is a baller, a fighter, and motivator. His impact was felt immediately and was voted team captain. I don't think keeping him kept the team from any other free agents they are targeting. The two big tackles are off the board and none of the FA CBs really impress me that much. I'm not upset now (I didn't expect them to be aggressive) but I might be if they end up overpaying one of the CBs LOL.

    Then I’m confused as to why TY was brought up then? Roby and Darby are both better than what we had last year and at least provide help to our secondary. I see them both as improvements over what we had last year. Are we in a better place with the secondary, I’d say we aren’t cause Gibson isn’t a long term solution as a SS. But are we significantly worse? Not even close. Plus we are just now approaching 24 hrs into legal tampering, so there’s PLENTY of time left.

    Gipson is what... a inch or two taller than Jackson and Mathieu?

    The team has struggled to cover TEs the last two years after Bouye left. If he can successfully man cover the best TEs on the opposing teams, this is a fantastic move.

    He was brought up because of the comment about all the money we saved. I don't see the point of celebrating money saved when it doesn't turn into talent on the field.

    Roby and Darby are better than what we had last year but they are not top tier even if they weren't coming off injuries.

    Why I mentioned it being only day 2 of tampering. We don’t need to blow cap space on a position that won’t help us cover TY within 48 hours of legal tampering. Guys are still going to be cut. Alittle patience isn’t going to hurt anyone.

    I'm not panicking. Losing Matthieu AND Kareem hurts but it's not the end of the world. But i wish people would stop acting like saving money = getting better. As of right now we are not and I don't see any current FAs that they can sign that blows me away.

    so the Texans signed a mediocre safety.

    wake me when the team does something remotely significant in the free agent market

    Decent, like you said, isn't going to get the fan base excited.

    Honestly, rather than Roby and Darby. I would rather Desir and Breeland.
