Question Trotter

If Trotter gets cut June 1, would we be interested?

How does contract/salary work for these "cap casualties"?

I have read so much speculation about the LB lineup

Would we be better or worse with Jamie and Trotter up the middle and a Babin/Peek/Wong combo on the outside.

I know very little about defensive schemes, but it seems that at the very least it would take a little heat off the "Payne and pray for rain" depth at NT we are looking at right now.

I would start in on what it would allow us to do on third down passing situations, but the blood is draining from my brain...

I wonder if we have the cap room to get him.

I wouldn't be especially high on the signing astrofan, based on salary cap and the fact that I don't see a huge need there. In the 3-4 I just don't think two dominant ILBS gets you nearly as much as two dominant OLBS do. As an offshoot, I'm not quite as negative on foreman as some. I think he's a solid player--not great, but solid.

I think foreman's a guy that performs when his DL keeps guys off of him. Jonathan Vilma was described in a similar way before the draft, and even Brian Urlacher saw his production fall when the DL in front of him was down-graded. I'm in sort of a wait and see mode for our LB core, I think that by the end of 2004 we'll have a much better idea as to where our D stands.

In terms of post June 1 free-agency, I would look for solid depth at NT, reasonably-priced depth at ILB (as opposed to a new starter,) and perhaps a #2/#3 WR if a great deal can be had.

I also don't think the Texans will be looking for another ILB (unless they can sign him cheap). Sharper is great, Foreman did o.k., and everyone says they would like to move Wong inside. So I don't see us making a run at him if he becomes available.

As Of The moment I think CC has the linebacking core he wants, I Don't see him making a run at another LB. I think Peek, Babin, Wong, Sharper and company are just who he wants this season
