Be interesting to see how Morris goes with that O-Line of ours.

Do we still need to draft a young RB is another question.

Totally agree. I hope he gets a decent shot at it.

They still need to draft a back. Whether that's early or not I don't know, but McFadden is 29, Morris will be 28 in December, Lance Dunbar isn't an every down back and is coming off major knee surgery. Then they have Rod Smith.

If this team wants to run the football, which they do, then they need a solid stable of running backs. When it comes to starting a young QB they'll need those RB's even more!

The Butler should make a good compliment with Run DMC, and any assistance Robinson can provide in the secondary is welcome.
So Patrick Robinson has signed with Colts instead. Wonder if they have any interest in Antonio Cromartie? There isn't much else left out there.................

Cro for a year wouldn't be a bad option.

Or the old draft swingometer swings back towards DB. Saying that I don't think the draft plan changes much on free agent pick ups anyway.

Patching up more 'holes' if he signs. Former 4th round pick. 10 starts in 4 years, 6 of those last year with the Titans. Like so many of their off season moves Jerry & Co. are covering themselves in case the draft doesn't fall the way they want it to.

Beyond the starters they lack numbers. Jared Smith? Justin Renfrow? As it stands they are camp bodies. They have 10 O linemen on the roster currently.........they carried 9 most of last season........on a 53 man roster! With Training Camp starting out with 90 guys they have plenty of room to add a few more this off season.

Reports that Jack Crawford has signed a 1 year deal.

Talent-wise you wouldn't expect it's a sign they won't take Bosa at 4, but numbers-wise that's another D lineman added to the mix. You can only carry so many players so why pay ones that might not stick around?

Jeff Heath has signed a 4 year deal I seems.

Locks up one of the Special Teams spots long term if nothing else. They still need to find a way to upgrade the safety spot though. I'm guessing Church and Jones are your starters but it would be great to find a sure tackling young guy to put back there.

Adam Schefter reporting Ron Leary has signed his RFA tender with hope of being traded this weekend.

Wonder if this is coming from Leary's camp or the Cowboys?
