    I wonder what Dontari Poe gets in the open market? I think it's more likely KC pays Berry & are forced to let Poe walk. Imaging signing Poe in FA & drafting Reuben Foster. Our Run D would be potentially top-5.

    It was number 2 this year at 88.3 ypg. Yes, I know that is probably due to the weakness of the pass defense, but still an improvement from number 15 (112.7 ypg) in 2015.

    because he doesn't really fumble I guess..

    that's literally how low the bar is with our KR/PR

    just don't fumble, or take a safety on the 1st play of the season

    he will still be there come training camp if we haven't found someone that can do more than catch the ball

    There's a lot more value in that than a guy like Hester who will currently field kicks 8 yards deep and start drives from the 14

    Steady returns are more valuable than guys who might pop one off. Mariani ranks highly in his averages

    But I won't cry if he's out, but we may be regretting it like the first time he was cut

    I ho
    I totally agree...I'd like to keep them both, but we are in a good situation from a negotiation standpoint with Lewan if his demands are unreasonable...

    At this juncture I don't cut anybody because we don't need the cap space or roster spots....only reason to cut them is if you fear they might get hurt in OTAs and you don't want to be on the hook for their salary.

    FA is pretty simple...get a WR and 2 DBs

    Normally, I would agree with you, but remember when I brought up signing Hester for the playoff push (I'm just gonna leave this here):

    Hindsight is 20/20 but the writing has been on the wall for Mariani since he left the first go around. I understand human nature and we don't want any mistakes in the return game but being able to flip the field is very important. Let me repeat, very important. We need to get this right. Field position would give us a greater opportunity to put points on the board.
