What I like about the signing of Boone is that it tells me the coaches are making evaluations of their roster talent and have the OL as a priority. I suspect this staff is not happy with their LT talent at this point. Everybody points at ADavis, but I think he has more upside than Staley, and I would bet the coaches believe that too.
Grant - darn, he gets to showcase his talents this weekend! He could be a starter on other teams.
Brooks - I hope we can keep him, otherwise we need another OLB. We were just getting that position settled with talent.
Snyder - We don't know how the rookies are viewed by the coaches, but we could probably easily replace him.
Spillman -- Although not well know among fans, he may be under-rated on our team. He has been excellent on ST and made a nice stop against Rice in the Goal line defense. I suspect he is on the radar with other clubs personell departments.
Might need to tag Brooks if he wont re-sign, of course if Rogers is extended 1st. Rogers should be #1 priority,
With all the talent this team has, it's going to be expensive to keep everyone, which means some of these guys are going to walk. But I hope we keep Brooks, Snyder and Rogers. Grant and Spillman can be more easily replaced.
Exactly, IMO Rogers and Brooks are must keeps. Then it gets pricey, do we keep Grant, Spillman, how about Ginn, Morgan, Goldson, Snyder, i just dont know.
This is what I hate about having so many FAs after 1 season, 20 now after boone extension. But look at 2013 and 2014 after those yrs. Main ones are
Gore (Even though he is likely done after 2014)
then the rooks this year like Culliver, Miller and Hunter.
We need to start getting guys extended longer who are pieces for long term.
So far signed thru 2015 and longer are;
Boone, Staley, Vernon, Willia, McDonald, and Aldon if his option is picked up.
Could easily add Rogers and Brooks there. Then also we have to worry after 2012 with Delanie and Andy Lee.
