* Ireland said that just because the team hasn’t re-signed any of its 12 unrestricted free agents yet doesn’t mean they won’t bring most of them back.
He expects negotiations to pick up significantly in the next couple of weeks, with his goal to get guys under contract before March 9, when they are allowed to legally speak with the other 31 NFL teams. Free agents can speak with other teams between March 9-11, and free agency officially begins at 4 pm on March 12.
“I don’t think we had to get them done the first of January,” Ireland said. “The date in my head is March 9, to get those guys done before that period. … You can’t just make knee jerk reactions on getting certain guys signed. This is the time period where we’re starting to talk to them and trying to get things done.”

Who do you expect to see re-signed by March 9th? My guess is Hartline, Starks, Clemons. And possibly Jake Long and Fasano. FA on Wallace and a CB TE and possibly T and DE
