    Precisely my point. Why then make this move now until you have another move signed on the dotted line. You can't take it back so it makes no sense to make it in advance.

    Three of the four I'd say yes lb but they kept Washington protected all of last year so they still have hopes for him although I agree he needs to progress to the point where he's an effective situational rusher at the very least. Bass > than Ozougwu so Izzy has to beat out Scott and Lane. Lane shouldn't be a problem but Scott has had some pretty good experience and might also be able to do the DE/DT thing.

    I still think Emery will take another DE in the draft in the later rounds if he finds a guy he likes. Having a utility guy like Izzy has become has worked real well for them when they had that type of guy and not so well when they didn't. One guy fills two roles and can help keep the starters fresh at both LDE and DT. Even if Izzy still has some play left in him he's go to be replaced eventually.

    They likely have something close that is flying under the radar. Something is coming that we have not yet heard. Otherwise this makes no sense.

    Maybe a deal to get more draft picks, a higher draft pick or are in final negotiations with a player..... Something is bound to come out of this.

    I agree w/Benji, there's something in the works and Cliff Stein wouldn't let this slide.

    As much as I would love to believe that this means Allen will be wearing the navy and orange, I think more realistically it means Bmarsh and or AJ are getting an extension in the next few days. Phil is defiantly up to something however because kicking the cap down the road wouldn't make sense otherwise.
