I'm not sure how much is due or when, but clearly there's a lot left to play out among our DB's. Aside from needing to lock up Reshad Jones, I'd say everyone else is negotiable. My guess would be that Dmitri Patterson or Marshall would be retained, but likely not both. Depending upon whether we resign Smith and Clemons, we'll probably need to bring in new DB's via the draft and possibly FA too.
This is one area that I think will get a lot of well deserved coverage in the offseason and preseason. Hopefully we can get it all sorted out in the back so we can concentrate on the front 7. Our DL will be tweaked, but if we lose Starks that's a major adjustment.
Our LB corps really has zero depth and is nearing rebuild time, so I think we bring in at least 1 young LB as well. Dansby is coming back for 2013 I'd think, but 2014 is entirely up in the air. Burnett hasn't been stellar IMHO, but I'm not sure we can replace him inexpensively and he doesn't need to be replaced by a rookie yet. Somewhere our LB corps needs to come up with more forced fumbles and interceptions.
This year it's the DB's that need attention, but we need to get it fixed, because next year it'll be the LB's I think.
I believe Jake Long will walk
Hartline is probably going to get closer to 3-4 million per year (if he re-signs at all)
I think Reggie Bush walks initially - if he can get someone to pay him 5+ million a year in free agency more power to him, but I predict he'll come crawling back to Miami on the cheap
Fasano will re-sign probably in the 1-1.5 million dollar range, if he does resign.
So that leaves Randy Starks - I would give him something close to the deal Paul Soliai got.
please shut up about reggie wayne people.
we never had a shot unless we threw a stupid amount of money at him.ndianapolis Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne revealed in a radio interview with WNDE in Indianapolis that he took less money to stay in Indy and remain a Colt.Wayne said he didn't expect to be with the Colts again as free agency wore on, but when they called, he decided to come back.
"I will say I took a lot less money. I will say that, but this is where my heart was, this is where I wanted to be."
