I know my Bears would love a crack at him.

If we keep Palmer, we'd be stupid to get rid of him, I think we'll be resigning him. Palmer seems to really like the guy and Brandon has done well for us this year.

Miller did really well for us too and hasn't done much in Seattle to my knowledge though so maybe be wary of that, we may just make TE's look good.

It all depends on how much he asks for really. Jared Cook and Martellus Bennett could be good replacements, don't see Bennett not resigning though.

I'd say 35% chance that he won't be back.

It's all basically a test of his loyalty and to some, his character. He doesn't seem very outspoken to me. He's not very flashy. If he going to want a ton of money or will he be content w/ a nice contract and staying where he's always been? Normally, it's never the latter but who knows....

If Palmer stays, which I'm almost positive he will, Myers should stay as long as he's not asking for a boatload of money.

Since you are here already. What do you think the odds are that the Bears would trade for a guy like McClain? He would do well to learn under Urlacher for a year. Obviously with a restructered contract and he is young.

DHB also for that matter. If I remember correctly it was rumored that the Bears were going to draft him if we didnt take him that year.

Idk about DHB but McClain is far too slow to play MLB in a Tampa 2. He played Tampa 2 in that Detroit game last year when he was on CJ1.8k and it lost us the game

Ya probably.

DHB though I think would be a nice complement piece to Marshall and Jeffrey.

Depends on who the O-cord is next year. If we get somebody who wants to run or even run the ZBS again. I think Myers will be gone. He is not good at run blocking at all. I mean he has been outright awful at times. Depends on how much she wants.

We've talked about McClain in the past. Like you said, he's not a fit for our system. This isn't the same guy who you guys cut and who had character concerns, is it? As for DHB, can he play the slot? If he can, we'd be interested. What would you ask for him?

He could but has issues with hands at times. As far as going over the middle and taking hits yes he could. I think Jeffrey might be better as a slot guy for you guys with DHB on the outside with Marshall. Or they could be interchangeable. Teams have to respect his speed and if they let him lose they can let a big play go. With Marshall sitting on the other side teams will have to chose who to double up on almost every play. Obviously Marshall for his route running and pass catching skills. DHB is a pretty good run blocker as well.

What do you think your asking price would be? Obviously the raiders are a couple of pieces away, and it's likely DHB would leave upon his contract expiring, anyhow.

I don't see Bey sticking around. He brings a 10 mill cap hit next season. I don't know how much of that is going to count against us whether he's on the roster or not (OakDB and Rolni are your guys for that) but he's certainly not worth that money... like at all....

+1

I like DHB as a #2 WR if you have a good #1 already, but not for the money he makes. I wouldnt mind keeping him if he cost more in the $2M price range.

If he wants to play for a crappy team for cheap, he'll stay. Make your own odds about it.
