    Potential, cheap, 2 years to return to pre-injury form...if he ever lives up to expectations and we cut him, that's a carton of eggs on our face.

    Why would Lamont Thompson be a question mark? There are no veteran safeties on the team if both he and Tank Williams are let go. Why make a young and shaky secondary even younger and shakier?

    If one safety has to go, the logical choice would be Williams since Thompson just signed a new contract last July. I honestly wish both guys could stay, however.

    Why? Do you enjoy seeing them get ran over for TD's?

    The fact that people make it that far into the defense is NOT Tank or Lamont's fault. They were busy trying to do their jobs and also look out for the rookie corner's.

    Perhaps if they weren't forced to play with 2 rookie corners, they would be able to stay in their slots and not get beat so bad in the backfield.

    Because he has done nothing here and to keep him they'll have to give him a $1.275M base salary plus a $2.5M bonus. He ain't worth it...

    And what would the alternative be? What veteran safety is already on the team and will do better in 2006? And exactly why hasn't he done anything here? Ummmm, maybe because he's trying to fill gaps that are left by the rookie corners!

    LaMont sucks, he couldn't read a book let a lone a defense.

    The alternative is obviously sign someone else or left Fuller play.

    Or just leave his spot empty and get the same results.
