    he's on the wrong side 30, but short term would love to have him here.

    There has to be some old vet that will work out for us better than Green did I hope.

    This is the guy I want to see us pick up along with M. Peterson.

    These guys would immediately upgrade our back 7.

    McAlister has 3 years left in the tank & should be a reasonable $ signing.

    If anything, he could teach our young guys the tricks of the trade.

    McCalister was elite in his prime.

    I'm never against bringing in a talented CB.

    Dunta played better when he had Aaron Glenn tutoring him. McAlister was a better corner than Glenn and I expect Molden to be better than Dunta.

    Yes, but how much does he have left. I'm assuming he will want starter money, but will he perform up to those expectations. He's had a lot of trouble with injuries in the last couple of years which turns me off of him a little.

    He has a lot of similarites to Green. Very good in his prime, but hit that 30 wall and became an injury nightmare.

    That is arguable.

    I think Glenn had a better career, but at the peak of their careers, I'd take McAlister.

    Would love to see a guy like Chris come on board here. I just don't see that happening though. We've got a fair amount of money tied up in Reeves contract and for all the flames the guy gets, he wasn't Petey bad this year. Bennett had a a sophmore slump but I can't help but wonder how much of that was the due to the former staff. Molden looked good in ST but would've liked to see him in action at CB from what i recall he looked good in TC. Dunta is a question mark far as contract goes. If he is asking for Clemens or Samuels money IMO I'd let him walk but I think both sides will work out a fair contract. Letting Dunta walk is the only way I see us signing McAlister.
