    Artrell Hawkins was our best safety last year. You figure he went downhill that much?

    I agree with this prediction, although I think I'd keep Guss Scott and cut either T-Buck or Mitchell (most likely Mitchell).

    Guss suckss!

    :D

    Sorry, couldn't resist. :D

    Seriously, he's frail and can't cover. He was awful at Florida, where he was picked on frequently and gave up too many big plays. And he was dreadful in the games he played in 2005. Why the Pats picked him, I'll never know. Another poster theorized that Scott and Dexter Reid were panic picks after the Colts took Bob Sanders in the 2004 draft.

    Moreover, IMO, some of the UDFA DBs stand a better chance to win a spot than Gussss.

    Scott will be training camp fodder, Jones will be too slow. Andrews will make the team for ST. If that doesn't pan out, he's gone.

    Keon Jackson - cut - maybe on practice squad
    Tebucky Jones - team
    Mel Mitchell - team
    James Sanders - team
    Guss Scott - cut
    Ray Ventrone - cut
    Eugene Wilson - team

    Cornerback (10)
    Willie Andrews - team
    Vernell Brown - cut - maybe practice squad
    Randall Gay - team

    I think this will be who makes the team not sure about who goes when Rodney returns.
