    hearing more chatter that sickels may leave early. I think that would be terrible move, he would be lucky to get drafted. Sounds like he and Godwin 2 most likely with the others declaring back already and Allen said to be leaning back

    Didn't he see Anthony Johnson and others make that same mistake last year. Good news is our offensive line will be returning Mahon and Nelson.

    yeah, that's very good news. We were very inexperienced at safety if he left. Hopefully Monroe steps up and takes opposite spot next year. Scott is a wild card as well, or Wade could slide in there.

    Made my changes in Red...Nelson coming back will start, reshuffled line...Menet has been working at center. Shareef Miller or Bucholtz will start at a DE, but they rotate so many in, Simmons will get a good chunk of PT. Hoping Monroe stays healthy because staff loves him at S, but don't sleep on Wade. He will start at nickel and may slide in to safety to start this year.

    Christian Campbell will start opposite Haley. Wade will start out as Nickel and rotate in quite a bit at CB.
