Very well could be, I hope not though.

Yeah upon further inspection of the article I noticed that AP didn't sign but an "agreement is in place"

But I think we've talked before about how Marshall is a natural MLB. So maybe if Barrow doesn't pan out then you go Washington, Marshall, Arrington

Re: FOX Sports Says Pierce is Gone

the skins could definately save some money by not resigning pierce, they already have barrow signed and ready. i'm not saying it's the right move but it is something to think about.

Well spoken and enough said farewell pierce. Borrow its time to earn your paycheck and lets draft a LB.

Re: FOX Sports Says Pierce is Gone

I don't think we should match it, but I defer to Gibbs and Williams.

Pierce's deal isn't far from what we gave Trotter. Pierce looks like a Pro Bowler, but he's only had one season. Plus, Williams made our defense look great with Wynn, Griffin, Salave'a, and Evans on our defensive line, LeMar Marshall at LB, and Clark at safety. Half our defensive starters were undrafted free agents. So, perhaps Pierce looked better than he really is.

Re: FOX Sports Says Pierce is Gone

Clifton Smith was signed at MLB and was a stud at Syracuse. He left early at Syracuse and many scouts felt he had the talent to develop into a second round draft pick. He has no experience in the Pros, but we seem to have developed a knack for getting good undrafted free agents on defense. Or, at the very least, Williams is good at masking holes on defense. With Barrow coming back, I'm not terrified by the loss of Pierce.

But, if we also lose Smoot, we are going to need some help on defense (either with the pass rush or in coverage).

We will also need soe help in run support, because Smoot is good at that as well.

Re: FOX Sports Says Pierce is Gone

I think it's the intangibles I worry about losing when it comes to Pierce. He was basically a coach on the field, always aware of where his teammates had to be. What they were supposed to be doing, etc. Most players have a hard enough time just worrying about themselves

I'm not so worried about run support; Pierce was primarily a coverage linebacker and Smoot would try to tackle, but he'd come up limping after tackling scat backs.

Re: FOX Sports Says Pierce is Gone

if we do lose pierce we won't know exactly what we've lost until we see him play for another team, in a different system but if we lose smoot we do know what we are losing , not the best cb in the league but a pretty good one.

Re: FOX Sports Says Pierce is Gone

Damn, very dissapointed about this. I'll still hold out the same hope, but man that is a blow. Well I was saying today if we can keep just him or smoot I'll be happy.

Please Fred!

Neither was Dieon Sanders, Bruce Smith, Mark Brunell, Jesse Armstead, Trotter, or Borrow, however Pierce deserves it more than any of thers guys.

Re: FOX Sports Says Pierce is Gone

The difference is, with the exception of Trotter none of the other guys were products of their respective systems. Just too old to perform. Or in Barrow's case - injured.
