I really don't know about the defensive pickups you have. Would love to have Avril. I don't think Jeff Charleston is going to be here. I also don't think Dunbar is going to be the starting SLB. That's not his position and should only start there because of an injury to someone else.

Offense, IMO Colston won't be here. I think Meachum stays. If I am not mistaken, we have a couple receivers on the practice squad. So we might pick up more for the PS.

You really think we'd keep Meachem over Colston?

Dunbar has played the OLB spot...

Meachum price tag < Colston.

I know Dunbar has played the OLB spot but that's not his position. He would be more productive in the middle where he belongs.

He looks to be a prototypical 4-3 MLB. He doesn't seem big enough to play the SAM and isn't fast enough for the WILL (generally speaking).

He was born to play the 4-3 MLB position

I have to say that I agree with you that Dunbar should only start as the MLB - but that being said - I'd be lying if I said that I would be confident seeing Dunbar be the starting MLB in 2012, unless of course they sign a monster of an OLB to work on his side.

In my opinion Dunbar would give depth at MLB if he comes cheap, otherwise they might as well let him walk.



And JP, I do like your pick of Woodyard as the Will, but I'm not convinced that Connor would be that good of a MLB, at least based on the Panthers' games I've seen.

I think thats what Spags. will go after, a monster of an OLB., Connor is a pretty decent MLB, I would like to see him and Dunbar fight it out for the middle, I think it would be good, the other monster is already on one side,Wilson..

I guess, I mean I haven't really focused on Connor's performances in the Panther's games I've seen, but on the other hand, he hasn't done anything exceptional in them either or I would remember him better.

If he would be a cap friendly solution (and Vilma was no longer with the Saints) while still good enough to start, I wouldn't theoretically have anything against that.

I wish we could just exchange Vilma for Posluszny, they have almost the same exact contracts in terms of average annual cap hit of ~$7M, but naturally Vilma is on the back end of his contract while Posluszny just signed his last FA period. He would be an awesome MLB to anchor that LB corps.

If Vilma is let go, then Dunbar is the natural replacement. I like Dan Connor, but why spend the money when we have a comparable player in house?

Well, you would still need to have depth at that position, and Humber isn't really a good enough backup to a starter.
