    I guess I'm fine with Croston or an addition in the next month at OT.

    I think the Harmon is one the very best #3 safeties in the NFL. I see no reason to weaken that position, especially with McCourty in his contract year.

    Shelton or Wise could certainly be cuts. Wise seems more like if we are moving to running a 34 more often. Unless Parry has improved more than I have noticed, I would keep Shelton, even if Parry is the #3 NT. Guy would be more of a swing between DT and DE.

    It will be interesting this year with Mayo in a leadership role with personnel who can line up in 4-3, 3-4 or 5-2, and then stunt based on what they see open up. The additions of Collins and Winovich give them so much flexibility, especially with a veteran and fast secondary to further complicate matters for QBs.

    I like Roberts in this rotation. He won't have to drop back in coverage where he is weakest and can focus on tracking the ball or hitting gaps.

    Opposing running backs have their hands full trying to figure out who is coming and who is staying home.

    You have one too many players in addition to the 5 dbs.
    Roberts is buried on the depth chart.
    If he is on the field and it’s a pass he has to cover.

    I'd be disappointed if Roberts makes the team...we have better, more athletic linebackers now.
    I'm not sure about Shelton and Wise either.
