We absolutely need a young S who can provide depth early on and eventually take over at SS. 

I thought that was what we were training Cruikshank for

Byard, Vaccaro, Cruikshank.... we need someone else to go into that stew.

We need another NB/ FS to backup Byard

The backup FS was Kendrick Lewis who is a FA. Brynden Trawick was behind Lewis and Cruikshank. 

 

I could see them bringing back Lewis. Lots of familiarity with Vrabel and Pees. Was under Pees in Baltimore, under Vrabel in Houston and was actually a teammate of Vrabel in Kansas City. 

 

Speaking of Kendrick Lewis, he could be a great resource for Vrabel/Robinson on the Justin Houston matter.

Kendrick Lewis was abysmal when he was on the field, and he cost us 2 games that he had to play meaningful snaps in. His “leadership” and system knowledge is overrated. He is terrible, and needs to hang the cleats up again.

Say what you want about him but he played a crucial role in the playoff win.  The play at the end to avoid the penalty was huge.

He played fairly well down the stretch of 2017.  They had big expectations for him last year.  But, Vaccaro is the better player.  I'm sure Vaccaro fighting to get back after that horrible dislocation made an impression.

I know we are likely to re-sign Vacarro now, but if we wait to till the draft to fill the need this guy could be a really strong pick.

 

No way they wait on the draft when they could just sign Vaccaro. It's a waste of a resource that could be spent elsewhere.

It'd mean creating a hole that we'd then have to fill w/ a resource that could've been used elsewhere.

I wonder if we still might resign Cyp for peanuts. I don’t think he’s going to get paid what he thinks he deserves. If he’s only getting vet minimum offers I think he’d just come back here and be our 3rd safety.

 

edit: also not sure about his contract but if he had any guaranteed money it makes sense to not restructure. If they cut you with guarantees you get paid out. So it might have made sense financially for him to reject the contract restructure.

The real question is whether he gets offers to be a starter or whether he's getting backup offers. 

 

If it's the latter, he could be back for a year.
