Maybe their perceptions have changed as these players have evolved under the new system though.
Totally agree here. It's obvious they didn't feel good with Kj, McCain, & Quin... we drafted/signed FA that changed our secondary completely.
But once Wade got deeper into the film, he started raving about McCain & continued after he saw him in training camp.
I also doubt they expected to bring Allen back, until there was more film study & training camp. Remember our biggest gripe about the 2011 offseason is that we didn't land a
veteran CB to help our 1st round pick learned the game.
We brought Allen in halfway through the season & he proved not to be a good enough "veteran"
Jjo is our vet, we don't have reason for Allen. If he stays & I think he did stay in 2011, because they thought they could do something with him.
The 2011 season, in my mind says that McCain, Kj, & Allen have proved to be as good as they thought they would be & CB is much lower on their list of needs for 2012, because they over compensated in 2011. Why draft a high to mid round CB when we've got one on the roster (Harris). Why draft a mid to late round flyer when we've got one on the roster (Carmichael).... if like the 2011 season our starters played like crap & those guys couldn't get on the field as CBs.... like McMannis & Molden then I can see acquiring CBs this offseason.
But we've got bigger questions, bigger needs this offseason, that CB is & should be a low, low priority.
