As for FA OTs my top 3 to at least consider would probably be:

  • Max Starks, 7 years with the Steelers, 29 so some years left if there are no health concerns.

  • Shaun Andrews, 7 years of experience also (first 6 with the Eagles and last one with the Giants), 28 years old, has battled some depression in the past.

  • Nick Kaczur, 6 years with the Patriots, but didn't play at all last year, so there might be a health problem, at 32 he's the oldest of the bunch.

I'm not saying that any of them would definitely be better than Strief, but they are just some still without a team... all were released by their teams.

All of my friends from MN were very happy to see him go. He's lazy. Way too many times, a play is busted, then you notice, "Oh there's McKinnie just standing there doing nothing."

Loomis & SP will not bring a known cancer into the fold. They may look at options that are "projects" like Hargrove but they wont bring in someone like this

The lazy bum! No thanks. If AP doesn't need him to pave the way in the run game, we don't need him here.

Considering that AP is one of the more dominant RBs in the league - I think overall the best RB - this would not be a measuring stick I'd use.

The guy is lazy, attitude issues, is a turnstile LT against the pass rush. He has some size to be effective in the run game, but plays with no grit or passion to achieve that. Waste of roster space. Strief knows our scheme, has been effective when he spelled in. We need a depth signing at T. I think next year may be our time to re-invest a 1st rounder into the position.

I believe we sent that pick off for Ingram. Bushrod will be here for a few more years so we should be fine barring injury... while Brown is the future. We do need some depth, but that's why there's free agency.

Hutchinson, Guard, is why AP is all-world...

Hutchinson, that same guard, is why Shaun Alexander and Walther Jones were ProBowlers...
