Special teams All the key guys are back, across the board. Kick returner could be upgraded; otherwise, it all seems pretty good. Quarterback Maybe Hoyer will find a deal, maybe he won't. If he does, then the possibility of a new backup QB added to Brady/Mallett gets pretty real. Tight end We have a great pair of starters. We'd like a #3 guy who isn't also needed to play OT. It's not a great year for that, but efforts will surely be made. Inside linebacker Everybody except Guyton is back. The main doubt is how the ILBs get used, including the possibility of playing outside in 4-3 sets. Offensive tackle We have two young starters of the future. If Light does retire, they're starters of the present. Beyond that, Cannon seems like an adequate backup. And even if he winds up as a guard after all, he doesn't seem urgently needed in that role this particular season. ------------------------------ That's about as far as the (relative) simplicity goes. Every other position group seems to be in considerable flux.
