I think he meant Charlie Anderson (I get them mixed up all the time too).

I thought Bentley was brought in to replace Clark at LB....

and speaking of bringing folks in, does the signing of Earl mean they're no longer
interested in Chris Crocker or he's not interested in us?

Unrelated, as Earl plays SS while Crocker plays FS.

Bentley really replaces Charlie Anderson who signed with the Dolphins. Bentley could end up as a starter but we'll have to see.

We're still interested in Crocker even though we re-signed Demps (not Earl).

And Curome Cox played some quality special teams for us after we picked him up from the Broncos.

I'd be surprised if both aren't re-signed. And Bruener too.

I'm now igniting the resign Turk bandwagon.

I did not realize he was a UFA. I really don't want to go back to the bottom of the barrell and lose out on a solid punter. I just don't want to carry the league worst anymore after Chad Stanley a couple of seasons ago.

He wasn't stellar last year, but he did the job. Punters probably get less respect than yesterday's newspaper. But find yourself without a good and consistent one and you can kiss a good many games good-bye..........along with the season.

I realize that. What I'm trying to say is that he was better than Chad Stanley and we don't want to go back to Stanley-like efforts do we now?

Outside of that bungled snap which resulted in a TD for them (he should have swooped it out of bounds), Turk did a decent job of holding down the fort soI think he's earned a resign.

Of course for the right price but that goes without saying.

I was actually agreeing with you. I'm for re-signing him before we have to go back into the pond to catch a fish that can't swim. We don't need another significant variable going into the season.

Didnt know we resigned Abbate. Better not prevent us from drafting Jacob Hester. Too much potential at FB to pass him up.

Don't see the Texans drafting a FB. Leach is a monster lead blocker and they just made him one of the top paid FB's in the league. That's who will prevent a FB draft pick, not Abbate.

I like the Earl signing. Hope they get Crocker also and then sign the Turk. Probably allowing him to test market before giving him a minimum deal.
