    chad scott..... he was good when we drafted him and in 2001 but other than those 2 years he was a liability. But he can provide you with some experienced depth.

    He was with the Patriots last year until he got hurt and he looked decent for us.

    good signing. although hes old and not as fast anymore, he provides good depth with solid leadership for our young core and some say hes better suited playing safety now.

    Chad Scott does not and will not ever provide solid leadership. He may be a decent player, but that's all.

    I'm one of those some...in fact, this looks to me like the veteran safety signing people have been clamoring for. Remember the way BB raved about Scott's professionalism and approach to the game last season?

    Here's the safety lineup right now:

    Harrison (?)
    Wilson
    Hawkins
    C. Scott
    G. Scott
    Sanders
    Vetrone

    Works for me.

    yes but non are really for the future. Hawkins isnt young ..9th year i think? Guss Scott has never been healthy and i actually wouldnt mind seeing him get cut. Sanders is better suited for FS and i would like him to play a lot in dime package. hes going to learn. still remember the play where Bruschi tipped it up and Sanders ran it back for 6...he pressured QB a lot. I would still like to see us sign a guy who will be around for a lot longer who is worthy enough of starting like Donte Whitner possibly. Huff is going to be gone, Simpson likely gone so it might leave us between Bing and Whitner..if it comes to football knowledge and intelligence, then Whitner would get the nod there. Whitner reminds me of a young Mike Brown whos the S in Chicago

    I wouldn't mind a DB corps like this, either:

    Samuel
    Hobbs
    Gay (ERFA)
    C. Scott
    Poteat


    Harrison
    Wilson
    Hawkins
    Sanders
    G. Scott (ERFA)
    Stone (UFA)

    I think this looks OK - just fine, however I think you are going to see a couple of rookies and a free agent added to this list. Ty Law anyone?? I know, I know, never happen for the dough he is asking.

    yeah Law is definatley not coming back unless he takes less Guranteed money than he wants. Hes near end of his career..as much as I love him, I wouldnt want him back for that much money

    Yes, more will be there in camp looking to take Hank or Guss's roster spot.

    Poteat's spot is secure..he played well and can easily be a #4 CB anywhere in the league.. a good 1. For us, he will be our 4th or 5th so im very happy to have him. Hes always ready to contribute when called upon

    Up until yesterday, I said no way Ty Law ever comes back. But he's still out here and most of the big money is gone.

    He may face reality and reside himself that he's not going to get the big bucks. If we could sign him for an average $4mil cap hit for 3 years, I would be for it now. No more than $4mil in signing bonus,BTW.

    ^same thing happened last year.."oh man hes so silly thinkign hes going to get a big money multiyear contract" and he sort of did. Ty Law wont give up..mightl ower it a bit but the price is still going to be too high for us to consider with him being near end of career and asking for that much

    But you see, that's exactly the point. We have lots of players who have shown enough ALREADY for their position to be secure.

    CORNERS
    C. Scott,Samuel,Hobbs,Gay,Poteat
    and Sanders may be as good a nickel as any of them

    SAFETIES
    Harrison,Wilson,Sanders,Hawkins

    Will we not keep Guss Scott at about $300K as a special teamer? Of course we will. This is great value for one of the bottom three roster spots, even if he never active. He's good insurance at ST's and safety.

    That gives us 10 defensive backs, one of which might be on PUP (but not if want him before the last half of the season).
    -----------------------------------------------

    So, personally I see no reason for a safety, unless Harrison is not coming back, other than a veteran special teams specialist like Stone; definitely no draft need.

    I DO think that we migh bring in another starter to compete for a starting position, this year or next. He would take the roster spot of whoever goes on IR.
    ============
    BOTTOM LINE

    As with the OL, we have a complete unit. This unit is also better than the 2005 playoff unit. After all, we added Chad Scott and Gay. Also, Hobbs and Sanders now have some playoff experience. Hawkins is more used to our very complicated defense.

    NE currently has 3 CBs, 4 Ss, 4 tweeners, and two emergency CBs. What will be interesting in the draft, is the Special Teams potential for BB's picks, including any Special Teams focus he has for second day picks. There is where I would consider a S, LB, or CB to be a STs specialist (there is a reason Stone was made an offer and the S from NO was brought in) - Early picks like Lawson intrigue me for his speed at LB/STs - an early S makes little sense, but an early CB to push the ones we have is also of interest.

    Emergency CBs:

    Troy Brown
    Bam Childress
