    Now let get the defense position on point. Starting with Defensive Tackle position at least two or three free agents. Can’t bring all the guys from last season didn’t show me enough reason too bring them back. Maybe Anwuan Woods, Robert Quinn, Byron Jones, Sean Lee, Kerry Hyder, Daniel Ross. These two come back as special team players Jeff Heath and C.J. Goodwin. Then draft a safety and defensive tackle plus cornerback and wide receiver and defensive end plus a tight end and swing Tackle those our top needs. Depend on what take place in free agency.

    I am believing in the changes & non changes that are being made is a positive for Big D. I’m interested in the fact that McCarthy has allowed Moore to keep his play-calling duties, if or when even will he take over if we start struggling? I agree that Moore had a great year last yr and looking forward to maybe McCarthy talking him into mixing in some west coast style offense! This year is all gonna come down to Cap Space/Free Agents we sign/resign and who we draft!
