Thanks. I wasn't sure where to find this. I mostly agree with the guys you want to keep.

I like Strief at the right price. Humber is a versatile, good role player. I would lowball Bush, Morgan, Collins and Harris and see what happens. Other than that, the rest can go. Continue with the youth movement and hope Ryan doesn't get a Head Coach opportunity.

I agree with Danno on them options.Parys has been a solid player and would be excellent cheap depth with Butler back next year.

I like R.Bush too him and Vaccaro are a decent pairing and it will interesting to see what happens with Jenkins and Harper.

Id like a new top end centre if iys possible and a young RT to learn under Strief for a season.

Kenny V and Bush will be a tad better than 'decent' next season. In my mind these will be two of the more scarier safety tandems in all of football.

Book it.

Jimmy Graham will be back, you can guarantee it, although a franchise tag will be placed on him this off season and bigger contract next.

Graham played terribly the second half of the season upon his return for injury post Pats game. His blocking ability is a joke, and although he towers over opponents he can be disrupted by aggressive cornerbacks.

What Graham needs is coaching, offseason coaching at that. But I found Shockey to be as affective when called upon, with more sure hands, than Graham proved down the stretch from mid-season to the end.

I'd rather skip the overpaid salary and get an effective TE than over paying guys who under-perform. As for the rest of the WR corp, I'd rather part ways with most and bring in young talent to fight for the job. The drops this season were a joke, worst I've seen. It would be acceptable if some of these guys were at league minimum, but some of our WR are getting paid BIG dollars to be hurt, on the bench, and when they return, they simply do not earn their salary.

Rafael bush should definitely be a priority player for us to bring back and he should be starting aswell

Seattles WR's were downright scared of him coming across the middle, golden tate even flinched when a pass landed short because he knew Bush was there

I see Graham different

He is all that

Since Talib got away with malling him every play other teams do the same thing. He is worth the money and Drew better open his own purse strings. Graham is a key part of the lifeblood of this team, is young, draws away defender attention and we need to reward him for his exceptional play
