We have about 7 free agents and 7 draftees still to come, but even now the defensive propsects are fine. McGinist will be hard to replace, but he will be replaced. I see no reason to believe that one of the strongest defenses in the league at the end of the season will be getting weaker. We need about 5-7, but could go with just jags at all but linebacker. ----------------------------------- DEFENSIVE LINE (perhaps one to compete as backup NT) With no additions, Klecko will probably be beaten out by Thomas. This group figures to be a bit better as the youngsters all improve. There are no old vets. LINEBACKERS (need two additions) We have nine, the right number. Claridge is our young draftee. Alexander and one other should get pushed out by additions. Colvin should have a good year. Are we really complaining about the LB corps getting younger? Beisel will stay if only as a special teamer. CORNERS (need two) We'll likely bring in 2-3 to compete with who we have. As of now, we have as good as we ended the season with. And Gay is back. SAFETY (add a special teamer) I'm fine with Wilson,Hawkins and Sanders.
