Because TKO was old and we needed a replacement.
Grant was already on the roster, released, and brought back in a backup role.
Gore and Hunter-I do not know why James unless Dixon will be cut because he hasn't been great at running the ball....and Gore is almost done.
Why Jenkins...because Ginn, Williams, Moss, and Manningham are on short contracts or the last year of their contract. Even Crabs is getting close to contract time.
You draft players who can start or start soon, bringing in 4 OL (3 interior guys) in 2 years and having none of them lock down the RG spot is sad. If Boone was the answer we should've looked for OT's to take his spot in the transition....we didnt. We could've packaged the picks and gotten 1-2 players that were better in every category.
You cant keep throwing s**t at the wall and hope it sticks. Should we draft another 2 OL next year in hopes one of them step us and beats the other 5 we drafted?
what would have them do for the oline, keep snyder and rachal? what other position would you have waned them to draft there?
an ILB to sit behind the 2 best in the business with a possible starter already at backup?
a QB who may not even make the team above alex, colin, josh?
they got good players at a position of great need,
No, we have a lot of guys on short contracts and if none work out we need long term depth that goes past 2 years. Ginn is not a WR, Williams is a ?, Moss is a 16 game ?, Manningham is good but not great, and Crabs still needs to prove he is a top 10 talent. It made sense to draft a WR, I was advocating for it all year.
What they shoulve done was taken kids who were plug and play or close to it. Hoping that all of these late round OL turn out to be gems is wishful thinking, maybe 1 becomes a starter-so far none can beat Boone at a position he hasn't played. It doesn't concern you that these kids who have been playing the position cant beat a backup OT for an OG spot? Either Boone is really that good or they aren't making an impact....4 guys who cant beat him?
I don't understand your ILB question
