Head Coach-Kyle Shanhan
Kyle is pretty much a prodigy at 33. While his age might scare some people I think knowledge wise having Mike as his dad puts him over the curse. With his lack of age I think the amount of control could be less then an older coach. Ultimately I think there is a higher chance Rod would come back with a younger coach who may agree to him coming back
While Bates and Kyle never worked together, philosophy wise they would be cut from the same cloth. Both run the same offense, which Cutler and Marshall are similar, having played it Denver.
Kyleís offenses have always been pretty good at running the ball. Heís got production out of guys like Steve Slaton and hit homeruns with guys like Foster and Morris. I think he would know what to do with Forte just fine.
Kyleís also got really good production out of average WRs in his career. Jabar Gafney was a 900 WR under him. You can see similarities between Cooley and Rodriguez both being H backs with somewhat similar skill sets.
Michael bush 2.5
Adam Podlesh 1.3
Matt Spaeth 1
Eric Weems 1
I just think all of them are making to much for what they are giving us and lack potential, to keep.
I think the most notable non cuts are Kellen Davis and Hester. Hester still gets us great field position and if he was put back strictly as a returner I think he could get his burst back.
Davis has been horrible and I get why people want him gone. I just donít want to see the guy put it together on another team, because if he does actually put it together he can be a really good TE. I would at least bring him into camp before I cut him. If you remember he was a DE in college. Lance Louis who had a position change was bad before this year and kind of put it together. Not saying Davis will do the same, but I keep him one more year before I cut him.
Both guys are set to make 8 million. If you can rework that so they you save money this year and can sign them long term, I think it makes sense.
Knox-If he gets cleared why not give him a shot. If he doesn't get cleared you don't sign him.
I believe in team chemistry and this was a top 5 defense. Why change that especially if Rod comes back? Minus Melton I think most of those guys come really cheap.
Will Beatty T
Beatty has been the Giant LT the last 2 years. Only given up 6.5 sacks in those two years. I donít think he comes cheap but I donít think heís gets crazy money either to the point where you canít play him at RT. I like Webb, and while a work in progress I see him continuing to improve. If he comes in improved in beats Beatty then you move Beatty to RT. If not Beatty is LT and Webb competes with Carimi at RT.
Andy Levitre G
I have heard people say he might get Carl Nicks money, but I disagree. He will get a nice deal but I see it in the 4-5 million range. He flat out isnít as good at Nicks, and doesnít have the size Nicks does. While I see as a guard heís also played center and tackle for the bills. Levitre is a very good guard but not an elite one. Heís never made the pro bowl or the all-pro team, something Nicks did all the time.
Brandon Moore G
Moore is a lot like Levitre in that heís a good guard but not really elite. At 33 his price tag is going to be cheap IMO. Brian Waters at the same age I believed signed something like a 2 year 3 million deal with the Patriots. I donít see Moore being that far off that mark.
Fred Davis TE
Davis is coming off a serious injury, but thatís always factored in price wise. Part of my reasoning of getting Davis is his connection to Kyle Shanhan. But I like Davis as a player if he can fully recover. Money wise he may be a cheaper option then some of the other Tes out there. Also along with Cutler and Marshall it would give the Bears 3 players who know the offense and have excelled in it.
Rey Maualuga LB
I liked Rey out of college and kind of surprised he never became elite. At 25 that window to be great hasnít closed yet. Urlacher is older and the probability of him getting injuried is higher. Maualuga has the talent to do well here IMO. Price wise I think he comes cheap.
Chase Daniel QB
The Redskins signed him originally before being the backup for the Saints. By no means is he close to RG3 talent but I think he can do some similar things offensively.
