    hey but he plays in the 3-4, that's why we couldn't draft Derrick Johnson

    Don't remind me. I still dream of that possibility of Demeco and DJ.

    Hopefully his replacement will be more of a menace in the backfield than he was. Hey maybe they have seen enough from barwin and will just move smith permanetly inside

    sort of surprising. I though he might actually have a good year in trying to earn a good contract.

    I guess they had to do something; sad to have to give up on a first round pick after 4 seasons. The defensive tackle play was poor last season and you're not moving Okoye so hopefully this shakes the group up.

    The first few years of this team's existence produced two really good players. The rest, like 4 years worth of drafting and free agent signings, produced average talent or worse. Remarkable.

    When Kubiak got this team it was like we were an expansion team all over.

    We probably saved a decent chunk of change with it being the last year of his rookie contract. Money that can be used toward Dunta/OD/DeMeco.

    Hopefully he will be our last wasted 1st round pick for a long, long time.

    When did it become so hard to find a good DT? We seem to be snake-bit at this position.

    Does Ray Childress have any interest in coming out of retirement?

    To be fair, this regime has only really invested in one and has attempted to patch together the other guys at that position. I still think this team is one more year away from being really good. They need secondary help and probably two more defensive linemen.

    Great. More possibilities of seeing smith on the inside and barwin at the end than originally intended.

    He might need the money since he let his dealership go to crap.
