    I'm not sure they will see any playing time, but I thought I'd share anyways. Jenkins is back.............for now. :)

    Hmm, maybe a little slobber-knockin 101 with Dunta will do the trick, no? :thinking:

    Damn, if the Saints chose Jason David over this guy, it doesn't say much for his ability.

    Molden fractured his ankle covering a kickoff against the Titans this past Sunday and is on IR. He should be fine for next season.

    We plucked him off of the Redskins practice squad to take Ahman's roster spot when he went on IR.

    That's 3 CBs we've picked up lately....
    is that a message to anyone? Or is it that Marciano just likes CBs for his S/Ts?

    I like these moves. They can be low risk-high reward, plus Smith has shown talent at picking up players in this manner. Maybe we find a diamond in the rough.

    Speaking of small moves, when did Darius Walker sneak onto our practice squad again?? I missed that one.

    Speaking of off-season moves... I was checking the HT.com after practice quotes and found this Kubiak quote...
    Doesn't sound like we'll be looking for a new center but possibly looking to upgrades at one or both guard spots.

    He is just referring to contract status. Briesel is only signed for this year and Pitts through next. Everybody else is signed through at least 2011.

    Oh.
    Okay.
    And its not like Kubiak to tip the F/O's hand on who they'll try to re-sign and who they'll let walk.

    Kubes likes this group of O-linemen, and I know I've heard him say on at least a couple of occasions (on 610 I think), that he thinks/hopes this group will be playing together for a long time. I think he really believes they are coming together as a unit and they will only get better in the future.

    So, while this doesn't look good for those of us who were looking for an upgrade at either Guard or Center, they may still pick one up in the Draft. But, my guess is, it will probably be in the later rounds. I was really hoping they would go after Mack or Luigs in the late 1st or early 2nd, but I don't think that will happen now. JMHO!

    I sure hope Unger will be around when we decide to get an OL. His versatility sure could come in handy in case of an injury.
