    Correct me if I'm wrong, but Mundy can pay both free and strong, no?

    If so and if we sign this Ravens guy, then we would have a starter at SS and two guys (Conte/Mundy) who can compete at FS plus Steltz and Jennings as reserves. That plus a mid-round draft pick is good enough depth by me. Please please don't tell me Emery would use the 1st round pick on yet another safety when we need DT way more.

    Close enough for me brother. Now that's taken care of I'd say yes, let's sign James Ikwyjibo. It even looks better than Ihedingybo or how ever he spells it.

    I think Mundy is more of a SS while the "I guy" (that's what he is 'til I learn his name) can play both. Signing him provides more vet experience so it's not a waste to do it plus draft a Safety whose more of a FS. These day if they have range and ball skills they can play either spot. Emery obviously hasn't totally given up on Conte.

    I would be more then happy to start this guy if we picked him up. It seems he had a pretty good season and the only reason why the Raven's wont match his contract is because they are in cap hell and know they wont be able to match it

    Wow, I didn't realize that safeties were supposed to actually tackle people. Who knew? Maybe Mel should clue in our boys that this is allowed in the existing NFL rules (maybe even Conte could learn this new skill).

    Nor should he. Hate me if you want but I haven't either which is why I'm not all enthused by drafting a safety before round 2 at the earliest. Conte is everyone's favorite whipping boy right now and yes I admit he had a horrible season. The whole D had a horrible season (except Jennings they all were either hurt, sucked bad, or both). Conte actually played pretty well in his sophomore campaign when there was an actual pass rush and an actual run-stopping DL ahead of him. Same thing with a LB corps that wasn't a total sieve. And I do think that CC was made to look even worse last year playing next to MajorDumbshit who frankly had no clue out there.

    Give me one legit starter at SS and one legit competition guy at FS. Add in Conte, the reserves, and maybe a 3rd round draft pick and we are good IMO. Improving the front 7 will make the S position look much better.
