Vernon is a must and then Franklin. Goldson can be replaced or waited out unless he went all pro this season.
Franklin can be replaced easier than goldson, plus franklin is already getting up there in age and take into account the beating his body takes playing the position he does.
Id rather sign goldson
Franklin is a proven stud who has played well for 2 seasons already. Also, what beating are you talking about? he's been a back up and never really saw the field his whole life until he signed with us. Goldson made a few plays last year but overrall he's unproven. His coverage is still something that he needs to word hard on.
If Willis, Spikes, and J. Smith all had good words to say about Franklin anchoring our D, I would definitely take their words for it.
He has? I thought the reason why they DIDN'T extend him last season (before his contract year) was because he was pretty average.
He was a stud after we switched schemes to fit him better. Keep thinking Franklin is replaceable and we will go back to the same sorry ass defense that we had when Nolan was here.
