Good depth. Kinda Suprised, I thought we were in pretty good shape?

Nice to see a local product though, went to High School In Newport News, Va. at Menchville High, NICE MOVE!

I thought I heard somewhere (don't you love such official sounding quotes) that Springs will probably be a cap casualty?????

Don't know much about Macklin but if he can help it's a good pick-up.

Re: David Macklin our new CB

Soooo, is Springs gonna be a June 1st casualty? Is he gonna move to safety? I like the depth move though, plus he has good size at 206 lbs.

I also like that the Eagles wanted him and we got him instead.

This might not mean anything for Springs.

Re: David Macklin our new CB

I like this move. I know there were several of us clamoring for him. Good depth. We still have no heir apparent to Springs to be a "#1 corner" though

Re: David Macklin our new CB

2006 Scouting Report - Scouts Inc.
Grade: 71 | Key
Alert: None

Comment:
Macklin is extremely competitive and consistent. He works hard and plays taller than his listed size. He is tough, aggressive and can high-point the ball. He has very quick feet and plays under control. He has good short-area skills and is very effective in cover 2. He shows excellent cover instincts, understands route concepts and makes good decisions from off coverage. He can squat and close quickly against three-step drops. He is very effective in run support. He will attack downhill and is a solid hitter and wrap-up tackler. But Macklin lacks quality size and athleticism for the position. He isn't very effective in press coverage. He lacks top-end speed and struggles to recover if his jam isn't perfect. He has some trouble downfield against bigger receivers and on jump balls. He is much more effective in the slot than out on an island.

Re: David Macklin our new CB

good pickup. we'd be foolish not to restructure Springs to keep depth or move him to FS

Not so sure SS is willing to restructure.

Players are always willing to "restructure" as that always favors the player. Shawn Springs was unwilling to take a paycut, for obvious reasons.

WRONG! Players are not ALWAYS willing to restructure. That makes NO SENSE.
