I agree. I want him not to start as much as anyone here, and laughed when I heard he wanted out. Yet, I can't help but think that he isn't the WORST free safety in the NFL. There are plenty of things he does, and does well. I just think that we need someone better.
Plenty of other teams out there have major issues that he could do a great job filling their needs.
Actually, I posted a thread during the season that showed the INT statistics of all the NFL starting safety tandems. I think we were the worst - as in zero. LOL.
Now, INTs aren't everything when it comes to Safety play and Michael Lewis shows his value with his run support, but there were repeated times last year where Roman's coverage broke down and those poor plays could not be alleviated by at least one single INT from him. I dont even think he forced a fumble last year. He may have but nothing sticks out in my mind.
