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.
A classic case of inflated self-worth; delusions, not of grandeur, but simple competence. Athletes have never been the best judges of their own performance. This is obvious with Roman. Either the coaches told him his time had passed, or he saw the writing on the wall and refused to believe it. If he thinks he can start elsewhere, more power to him and ADIOS!
Whatever you think about Roman, he's one of THREE safeties we have on this team and one of TWO that have any real starting experience. So until we get some other bodies at that position I don't think we should let him go anywhere.
