This four year franchise has been starving for any semblance of talent. Any time a guy with a modicum of talent hit the free agent market, there would be a thread with us praying this marginal player would join us AND upgrade us. I think those days will be behind us soon. Kubiak demands more depth and competition than we have ever had in the past. He isn't counting on one mid-round selection to jell into a starter we desperately need. Instead he is taking the incumbent, the rookie with potential, and a newly signed free agent and pitting them against one another. That seems like the path to building a team. Also, isn't that basically what the Patriots do? They keep adding talent even to areas that are considered deep or strengths. It gives them options and puts less emphasis on any one player. This offseason we have added several players in certain areas: WR, TE, O-line, D-line, and, to a lessor extent, LB. Let the competition begin!!!
