Haynesworth could very well play NT, but, from everything we know of his character, he wouldn't be happy there. From our perspective, we would be fools to force him into the role as our full-time NT. Reids making assumptions and treating them as fact, and thats the main thing I take issue with. I certainly don't see any reason we should be getting rid of Griff, especially considering how cheap he is.

If I had to predict, i'd say we played more 4-3 this year than anything else and that we'll switch to 3-4 when Haynesworth steps off the field to take his breathers.
3-4 base with a 4 man front at times.. you've still got a 3-4 line and positioning, but you'll line someone up outside, Shanahan and Haslett have been a lot more clear about it lately

Haven't been able to confirm Smoot/Betts releases, but both of those guys are potentially obvious choices for release.

Wow, this day is getting better and better, although i'm sure "appreciation threads" will start popping up at one point or another. I do have one request - can a lifelong ban be placed on any warpath member who posts a ARE appreciation thread?

I imagine CP gets till the off season workouts on March 15th to show that he has every intention of abiding by MS' routines

it'll be very telling to see where these guys end up and what type of contracts they sign.

Not happy about Betts. We need running backs bad.

Maese suggests Betts' release is highly likely, if not yet official:

Twitter / Rick Maese: It's believed that Ladell ...

Confirms Smoot release

Twitter / Rick Maese: And cornerback Fred Smoot ...

I suppose thats the smart thing to do. Considering the money we're paying him, as GM said, if he can even be somewhat productive, we should keep him. Its hard to imagine him not earning a roster spot with his play, but i feel he should be cut at the first sign of trouble.

anyone think sellers will be cut?

We'll get em. That will not be a problem.

But it looks like right now, the RB depth chart is Portis, then Alridge/Mason behind him. Ganther nontendered (he's the one I forgot), and Rock/Betts will be gone tomorrow.

At least with the "running" part of running back, he certainly does.

Thank God Smoot is gone. He didn't do squat.

They're just making room for Peyton Hillis.
