I know we might sign some more free agents and we will bring alot of competition into camp but here are my thoughts on the current roster :
Receivers - Any predictions on how many non imports we will use. Will Stalla be the 5th receiver now like Carter was last year or will they start 2 canadians and have the 5th receiver be in import from Jeffers, Kelly , or T Grant .
Right now I see Fantuz starting inside and Williams and Bkari Grant starting with either Stala or (Jeffers or Kelly) as the 4th receiver .
Anyone know if Terry Grant will be healthy for camp . I wonder if they will be tempted to bring in Fred Reid or Reynolds if Mallet doesn't impress in camp especially Reynolds since he worked with Burris for so long.
I think they will keep Q. Porter any thoughts ?
Dline -- it looks like we once again have no true DT's . It looks like Baggs , Rose, ( Steele / Kirk) , Peach .
I am surprised that Eiben agreed to come here as a backup LB and special teams player ..Might they be looking at 3 -4 defence ? Can Eiben only really backup Johnson's position ? Eiben will be a great leader and specialty teams guy but I thought he could still start .
6 Any thoughts on whether Hickman and Thigpen will stick down south . My thoughts are no to both ....I think hickman is not fast , strong and agile enough to play linebacker ...and thigpen has raw speed but won't succeed with less field space ..just my opinion .
7 Who will replace Thigpen ? T GRANT and C Williams ?
8 Oline ..
Oh my ...who will replace Rotteir..I suppose it will be o'neil with W. Smith as insurance . i also assume we are going with Belton and Simmons as out tackles. I know there are some really good previous high draft picks coming into camp this year so they might surprise and be out long term future . I hope HAGE is healthy . I had heard we are getting Murphy from the ARGOS but i guess not .
Well HINDS should man one corner especially since he is a non import ratio buster
the other corner should be Turenne or Means with Young being the third option
Dee Webb and Turenne or Means with Bo smith bring the third option
Collins or Thomas
10 Linebackers are a no brainer with Eiben being a possible 4th in a 3-4 defence and Denison and Ike brown being backups and Maruiz the extra canadian
i think overall this team has much better defensive backs providing Means, Turenne and Collins all return to camp ..
Also if Hinds can stay healthy we are in great shape
We have been weakened at DLine with Hickman leaving but if Rose is back he might make a difference with Peach
Our linebackers are great and Eiben addition is great
I think our specialty teams are in great shape adding Eiben and having Beswick , Hood, MARIUZ , iKE BROWN , kANYA ,
y Carter .
Replacing thigpen will be tough as a kick returner
12 Let's pray Medlock comes back .....or that will be huge drop ..any thoughts ?
Any thoughts on if GIguere will be coming to the cats this year ..?
14 Coaching and ofensice co-ordination has improved with Cortez ..and his familiarity with Burris .
15 OUR Qb position in Burris has improved and having Cortez and now fantuz really helps .
16 Running Back,...we will have to see what Mallet can do in camp ..but we Have Reid, Cates, and Reynolds all out there if he doesn't work out ..we also have Terry Grant if his leg is healed.
