He would be a good nickel back for us. I say go for it.

I would absolutely love the acquisition. This guy has lots of big game experience, and he's clearly ascending.

I thought the guy was playing well for the Seahawks. His name was announced for a lot of interceptions at least. Do we know why they released him?

I don't know why they released him, but I could take a pretty good guess:

I know for a fact that the Chiefs won't take him, because I'm willing to bet his ankle injury is still bugging him.

So now I don't know if we should acquire him. Maybe if he gets healthy, but who knows how long it'll be before that happens. Definitely not now, though, because the last thing this team needs is a player on its roster sucking up money without even touching the field.

Edit: We probably don't need another player that'll break easily, considering the troubles that Bennett and Sampson have posed for us. My official stance now is to pass on him.

Yea, adding dead weight right after you jettisoned the biggest (Sims, Hicks) isn't in keeping with our current path. Make those young guys step up or get out of the way.

Fair enough, but from my limited exposure to him, he seems very talented. He can take the time to get fixed up if needed.

Turk and Tank playing well ought to make whoever is back there look better. No Dline pressure means your CB/S look bad regardless of their talent.

TC need to hurry the hell up. I want to see if we've been living a pipe dream since the draft or things really are on the way up.

I like him, too. He's ascending, talent-wise, and he's got valuable postseason experience that a team like this needs.

But we simply can't take him if he's a question mark all season.

I'm sure Herm likes him, so I guess I wouldn't be surprised if we floated him a one year deal given our lack of depth.

But I don't know where he'd fit on this team if he posed availability problems all year -- it's already likely that he'll miss the beginning of the season since he still can't even participate in practice. And who knows how quickly he'd return to game speed when he did.

I agree. CB is still pretty scary though. It will be tough if our young guys don't pan out.

I will be massively disappointed if we don't have a good DL this year.

There's absolutely no reason we won't, though. Allen and Hali are provens, and Reed and Edwards were just flat overworked last year. And Boone is a proven. Wilkerson's all heart.

It's Tank and Turk. Those are the X-factors. If these guys are "eh," our line probably still improves, but marginally. If they slam the doors open, we're a slam-dunk top 10 defense.

At least we won't find out they suck when Ty gets fitted for his walker and Surtain takes up fishing or whatever retired footballers do. Replacements need to be found before the starters fade. I wish DV had that in mind.

Honestly, I think Herm would prefer that kid we signed after rookie camp, Tony Franklin I think his name was, than Kelly Herndon.

Franklin was a 4 year starter in college, and even though he didn't stand out enough to get signed until rookie camp, he showed up every day and is a known quantity. I think Herm prefers to deal with men who show up and men who's capabilities he has a good handle on than crazy gambles with injury histories.

But then again, he did draft Brodie Croyle...

I'd go so far as to say that even if Turk and Tank don't play much we've stepped up. We have more bodies to rotate at the very worst. If Turk lives up to his billing we'll be sitting pretty and if Tank can pull a double team once in a while that top 10 doesn't look beyond reach.

Croyle's injury history has an asterisk next to it. He got hit like a drunk coed at a frat party. (Crosses fingers:))

Honestly, I think the top 10 is very possible based on two things:

1. major LB core upgrade
2. more capable bodies at DT

I think those two things alone can bust us through to the Top 10.

But if both Turk and Tank live up to our expectations, this is a Top 10 defense, slam dunk.

By the way, pikesome, that's the rookie DT we picked up as an UDFA in your signature, right?

Do you know anything about him other than what any regular reader of CP would?

Not really but the martial arts training makes me think of Samurai from Necessary Roughness and that makes me smile. Add in the CP trend of picking a 3rd stringer or PS guy and pimping them like Zeus' offspring plus the easy Chuck Norris style jokes and I plan to keep myself amused till real football starts. Maybe after even. :)

Your sense of humor has evolved to adapt the CP way of life.

I hope you're right with the Lord because you're past the point of no return.

Anyone who isn't welcome as a DB in Denver and Seattle sounds like someone who could start in KC.

Are you guys serious?
