    Swell, we're really getting younger on defense.

    Young get $3.95 million guaranteed. Renovating the defensive line was GM Phil Emery's focus heading into free agency, and he's replaced DEs Julius Peppers and Corey Wootton with Lamarr Houston and Young. 28-year-old Young amassed 48 quarterback hurries in Detroit last season. He should play a lot of left end. Mar 13 - 11:42 AM

    I still don't get it why he's letting Wootton walk away. Offer him a God damn contract, pronto!

    For a guy that wasn't a starter his #'s look good, it's a good signing, not a homerun, but a good depth guy and again the team needs starters(which will happen via draft) and depth guys.

    Yes because Wooton is younger and has better size. ;)

    yep, we didn't spend 8-10 mil on DB's so Emery has failed.

    The team needs to get 20-30 guys in FA and the draft, you cannot sign the top or even medium names, they went after 1 medium guy in Houston the rest is going to be depth and draftees.

    How many times did I say they weren't going to use Cutler's contract as an ATM, if they had wanted to do that they would have built it that way to begin with.

    Lil B, Wootton also has had HIP SURGERY and won't get cleared until July! Why sign a guy that won't pass a physical for another 3-4 month's ,minimal?

    Exactly right. That's why we were in such a bind. CW can't even be evaluated on the field for months yet. Can't risk he would be back to 100% in time for regular season. The guy has been hurt 3 of his first 4 years. He will get a "prove it" deal from someone at best I think.
