    Now that some major restructures have been completed, do you think they are completely done with all of the restructures or could there be more coming and who ?

    Now that we're under the cap we will re-structure as needed if we are close to a deal with a pedning FA or 2 and need to have more room to sign our draft picks.

    What I do think will happen is 3-4 cuts to make us a little more room for the 1-2 starting caliber FA we may desire and our draft class.

    Those players that would/could be cut fall in this order:

    1: Doug Free (Jerry speaking on Free as an OG tells you he's obviously not fulfilling it as a RT. We know Free is not a guard and I'm pretty certain Callahan would only entertain trying a looksie there because Jerry spent a good chunk of change on Free. I think it's smoke and mirrors to not make it as obvious what we have to go after in the 1st 2 rounds or FA, an impacting guard and a contending RT to start or swing once Free is cut.)

    2: Dan Connor (If he does not take the pay cut)

    3: Gerald Sensabaugh (Sounds like Church is a sure fire starter in this staffs eyes, doesn't sound like Sensy is Monte's guy)

    4: Marcus Spears (If Marinelli likes him as our run stopping DT in the rotation he is kept and or maybe asked to take a pay cut since Lissemore is signed up and could also be that guy)

    I think the team's planning on keeping Sensabaugh another year. People ran with the speculation that we might be looking to replace him b/c Steven Jones mentioned the other two guys only in an interview, but I believe he was taking it as a given that Sensy would fill the one position and that either Church or Johnson would be an option for the second.

    Spears is a tough case, because it'd actually cost us money to cut him this year (~100k, iirc). At the same time, there's really not much of a role for him in this defense anymore.
