  1. Good signing. Really wasn’t comfortable going in with only Bohanna at the 1-tech and their aversion to drafting run stopping tackles earlier than the late rounds.

    Still wish they would have brought back Justin Hamilton, too.

    • They might still resign Urban. He was their best run stopper before his injury, and not coincidentally the run defense got worse with him out. Have heard some calling for the Boys to sign N Suh. Not a bad idea if it’s reasonable.

      Watkins was a solid move for depth purpose….but can we really consider it “Breaking News”
      LOL

      • Give me Urban and draft another run stuffer. These guys have been run over and around the last two playoff losses., It’s a shame babyNurts Steven goes on the cheap right up the middle of this defense. They are soft as a pin cushion at the point of attack. Who builds a team like that?
