    Yeah, I just saw that. I haven't heard about the $$ but this is good news IMHO.

    Sweet Podlesh gone and Ratliff for 2 yrs. Probably means no Melton with Ratliff but still possible I guess, atleast somethings starting to happen.

    That is good, him and Anderson were a couple of the bright spots on defense, but they could not do it alone.

    Great news. I thought he played well for the limited amount of games he saw action. He played better with more time in the system.

    The signing of Ratliff pretty much spells walking papers for Melton, his knee injury is a big concern and i don't think the Emery and Trestman are gonna bring Melton back and risk spending money not knowing if he'll return to true form again.

    I like this move and I agree Melton is out. When you blow out AC like Melton/Harris there's just no stability to push off from. Especially the size of the these D linemen, take at least a good year or if ever to come back from.
