And cutting Glenn and letting him go to the Cowboys didn't really boost the Cowboys much, either. So, we need to let go of the emotionalism as if some guys are due their roster spot JUST because they have that "leadership factor" etc. Our team was, and still is, in danger of just being a final resting ground for players who drift through free agency and are on their way out of the NFL completely. That's why I hope we gobble up as much as we can through this year's draft so we can get younger. Every year I am growing more leary of free agency and am falling more in love with the draft. IMO, I just think free agency is an expensive way to gamble on a player whose best days are probably behind him.
Well now, well now! Every once in a great while . . . a light shines . . . and hope springs eternal.
