Big thumbs up on this paragraph.

But for a team that already had a deep receiving corps (with newly re-signed Jerry Porter and emerging youngsters Ronald Curry and Doug Gabriel) and the No. 7 overall pick (traded, along with linebacker Napoleon Harris and a late-round 2006 pick, for Moss) in a draft steeped in quality running backs, it would appear that Oakland didn't need Moss or Jordan. Had they done neither deal, perhaps the multimillion-dollar savings might've greatly benefited a defense that ranked 30th overall in total and pass defense last year. Then, like the defending champs, maybe they might've found three, four or five reasonably priced folks to handle all that annoying tackling and covering -- you know, the stuff Brown and Sapp were supposed to do.
