We presently have 65 players under contract and will draft at least 7 more I believe so not only will those not be here on opening day, neither will a handful or two that we know now.

Greer - We just lost 2.6m in cap space when he was cut. Loomis would look like a fool if brought back.

2.6m in dead money + 1m league minimum = 3.7m

Can you imagine the outrage if Brooks indeed came back? LOL
Greer, as good as he was, even if he could come back, has lost a step or two. Not a good recipe for not getting beat. Maybe a late season addition due to injury, provided he is healthy of course.

<bringing up old debate and waiting for the **** storm>

We could do a lot worse than Brooks, just for the sake of argument. People love to bash him but tend to (conveniently) forget we were averaging dang near 30 points a game while he was QB. During his time here our defense was turrible, just turrible.

<\bringing up old debate and waiting for the **** storm>



As for the guys mentioned, I'm not much on it. I know Greer could play if his knee allows for it, so I wouldn't be against that, but I'd much rather see us invest in younger guys if at all possible.

I am the Genie of Sound. Everybody get down!

I can guarantee if these 3 comeback we will definitely be going for a lot of front 8 on the defense.

Safety blanket addition if we lose someone very possible. Otherwise I don't see it.

You don't start a youth movement by bringing back 10 year old vets to take reps in camp or preseason.

Those 3 are not needs, and Goodwin would cost more than a rookie.

Seriously?

Ok, fine lets put this in layman terms using your numbers since you like the idea.

You bought a $6m car, sold it because it wasn't worth the $6m for a $2.7m loss.. So you then re-bought it for $1m, marveled at the brilliance and slept well that night?

If your car won't refinance because it isn't worth it, and you make the tough decision that takes 2.7 million in credit from you.... Your not going back down that road with out looking like an idiot.

If those 3 are our there right now at this stage, there is a reason. It's probably because Greer will not sign for league minimum of 1m

If you play stupid games, you win stupid prizes.

I liked Aaron Brooks. He had 4 nice years for us. Threw a lot of picks on occasion, but I liked him nonetheless.

Ok, first off we did not pay 6 mil this year for him. We paid 2.7 mil to keep from paying 6 mil. If we could sign him for 1 mil that would equal 3.7 mil. A savings of 2.3 million. I would take that. As for him asking more I agree there.
