that may not be that bad of an idea. That idea has been floated around since he was drafted because we've had a starter at safety hit free agency every year in the harbaugh era. This offseason it makes the most sense since cully is coming off a ACL tear. ACL tears can sometimes make players a bit slower so I can see the conversion working out. We move cully to FS and reid to SS, we place brock as the starter and sign someone like verner or vontae davis and use a high draft pick on a CB. BAMMM...legion of boom who????
That would be an amazing S combo but I'd never do that though. Reid is playing too well at FS to move him and Culliver played too well at CB to move him. CB is more valuable than SS. Plus we can't afford Verner or Davis, those guys will be likely be looking for top dollar or will be franchised. I'm not comfortable going into next year with Brock, DP, Cox/Wright, DP, Morris at CB. I'll go Brock, Culliver, 1st/2nd, Wright or Cox (whoever is re-signed), 3rd-5th Rd, Morris and then Reid/? at S.
As for Whitner unless he would take a 1-2 year deal at like 3 mil a year I'd move on. Just have to hope our pass rush is better with Carradine or we blitz more if it isn't. Our secondary will likely go down a bit if we lose Brown, Whitner and Rogers. I don't know who I would replace him with yet, having a hard time finding a SS that I like. Maybe Clinton-Dix at 30 but if Gilbert, Verrett or Matthews are there not sure I'd take him over those guys.
