Re: Thoughts On Rafael Bush

something has to give

32 Vaccaro, Kenny S 6-0 214 24 2 Texas
31 Byrd, Jairus S 5-10 203 28 6 Oregon
25 Bush, Rafael S 5-11 200 27 4 South Carolina State

star here

30 Phillips, Kenny S 6-2 217 28 6 Miami (Fla.)
36 Ball, Marcus S 6-1 209 27 1 Memphis
42 Warren, Pierre S 6-2 200 22 R Jacksonville State
38 Sanford, Jamarca S 5-10 200 29 6 Mississippi
43 Sunseri, Vinnie S 6-0 210 21 R Alabama
49 Zimmerman, Ty S 6-1 204 24 R Kansas State

me thinks we are a bit overloaded at safety.

Re: Thoughts On Rafael Bush

Can't see any way imaginable to move Byrd because of that albatross of a contract...

Am halfway expecting Kenny Vaccaro to be among those shipped off just before or during the draft because...

...he's still viewed as a No. 1 pick who had a down season...

...you get some factor of cap relief...

...and there's 'benching' by Coach Payton...

Raphael Bush jersey and tenure is tied to whether Vaccaro stays or goes in the next six weeks...

Pierre Warren should be the safest bet among the reserves, we were fortunate to get him back...

Is Kenny Phillips healthy and can he be at least 89% of the player he was before injury?!?

While Vinnie Sunseri had some fortuitous bounces, he's had to small a sampling size...

Really like Sanford, but his size and inability to force his way onto the field limits his prospects...

Marcus Ball is an impressive physical guy, but he's more of an athelete than a football player...

Really liked when we signed Ty Zimmerman, but his age as a rookie and opportunities limit him...

Re: Thoughts On Rafael Bush

We'll need some of those "expendable" safeties to play ST.

And I think Ryan may be going back to more of the multiple safety looks from 2013

Re: Thoughts On Rafael Bush

Vaccaro's value might be lower than Bush after the year he had. IMHO he was used poorly by Ryan last year.Kid went from stud to dud . Hopefully his experience was humbling enough for him to get busy proving himself to still be a stud. Byrd will be a better player this season baring injury. Bush if he is not moved is great depth and situational player. Lots of other options with Sunseri,and the rest.Kenny Phillips when healthy is a stud. Don't see us using a draft pick in this spot.
