Since maybe Snyder will focus on retaining proven players instead of signing unproven or washed up free agents (or overpaying legitimate good players like Randle El), I was thinking of who are the most important players for this team to keep. I came up with this list:
I don't buy into this offensive line as the second comign of the Hogs. Samuels is a false start machine, Janses gets beat by any decent DE, and Thomas is aging. In fact, I value Thomas the most of the five.
Also, notice Moss doesn't make the list. This is a running team first, and they'll have to dramatically overpay Moss to keep him around. I think that Randle El, with his speed, could do everything Moss does if they took him off of returns. With what Portis is paid, the offense should be focused on him (unless Danny wants to spend on offense and let the tremendous defensive talent depart, as he did Pierce who's a top-5 MLB these days). I'd like to see our top-10 pick this draft go towards a tall Burress-like WR. This will give Campbell a much-needed Go-To/bailout guy next season.
Skins fan through thick and thin.
