    Solid signing. I liked the way Eugene came on strong once inserted into the lineup.

    I reckon a little spending money got in the way of Demps and playing football.

    I hope this doesn't mean we're not going after J. Phillips

    Sean Jones & Jermaine Phillips would still be on my watch list.

    I'd love to see them chase Jones.

    Was just gonna name him. I would feel really comfortable with the Jones & Wilson combo going into next season.

    Nice!!
    The puzzle that was once our defense is coming together. Barber did show some flashes last year, he looked lost at times but hey, he was a rook. Signing DR and Meco should happen before training camp. If Molden can come in this year and push Bennet into playing like his rookie year,or flat out replace him, we will be solid in our base and nickel. Now all we need is an edge rusher or two and Adibi to stay on the field.

    I'm a big fan of this move. I like Wilson as a starter. He's smart, dependable, makes plays on the ball, and he comes with decent range to boot.

    Eugene Wilson is a good player in his prime and has started in two super bowls and he isn't 30 years old yet. I love the off season that we are having and all we have to do is to sign or draft a good strong safety to team up with Eugene. Great move!!!!!

    Just re-read this. So, this mean that McClain is certain Barber is going to start next year? Is he one of those players that Kubiak "wished he played more this past season"? If that's the case then I'd be a bit skeptical having a 6th round, second year guy start on an already mediocre defense. Then again, I sort of built a strong trust in Kubiak.

    Past guys he wished he played more, then name starter during off-season:

    Kevin Walter - 2007
    Zac Diles - 2008

    In Kubiak we trust... I suppose.

    Barber would bring the Strong to Strong Safety. I'd love to see the type of physicality his bro brings on our defense, I'm just not sold on D-Bar yet.

    Great news about Wilson, another Smith + signing. Hopefully he won't have a drop off like Demps had. Look forward to him roaming the backfield for some more picks this year!

    I agree. This is good news, but I hope he doesn't fall off the planet like Demps.

    We need to get him a good running mate to solidify the back end of the defense.
