    Lots of moves: Signed Anthony Armstrong, LB Brady Poppinga to 53-man roster and CB Reggie Jones to practice squad.

    I do like Armstrong. He was really good a couple years ago. At least worth a shot. We don't have that top-end speed on the roster.

    Don't know much if anything about the other two. Poppinga's a former 4th rounder

    Whatever happened to that linebacker from New England that they almost signed?

    What else is new?

    That group isn't enough of a worry.

    And just who did you have in mind? Unfortunately, no team out there just out of the blue cut a healthy, starting All-Pro G or T.:)

    The OL is what it is and isn't going to change until after FA and draft.

    Who exactly is out there that would help? Most of our signings are going to be guys who take ST time as ST players move into bigger roles. What OL player can do that?

    The only player I know of that is available and could contribute is Holland. If Jerry was going to sign him he'd have done it a long time ago.

    I would sign former Panthers offensive tackle Jeff Otah.

    If nothing else, I would have several weeks to look at him as a possible long-term replacement for the vastly overpaid and under-achieving Doug Free.

    It would also clearly send the message to Free that "Yes, we are looking to replace you."

    Teams don't let quality O Linemen hit the streets. They are like NFL Gold.

    The roster's a mash unit. Brady Poppinga. He'll be getting defensive snaps on Sunday night. Hooray.

    Gary Guyton. They did sign him and he stunk out loud. They cut him 3 days later. He was issued #98.

    At this time of the year, I'd love to see them sign a couple developmental type OL--like Colombo, Parnell. Someone either w/potential or needing a second chance. We're not going to get someone to help us at all this year, save Holland. Even then, he's not going to save us.

    Obviously, you can't really do much with such an injured roster--you need all the roster spots you can get. But I think they could probably spare 1 spot for a developmental guy.

    If he stunk that bad why did they sign him in the first place? Just another stupid move by our brain dead front office. ;)

    I was bummed that he didn't work out. I like Guyton.

    Jerry Franklin on the PS has #98 now. I had him in a few Mock Drafts, so I am kind of excited to see what he has.

    The way we're going through 'em, he'll likely get his chance really soon.

    I have never seen an injury bug like this for this team. Someone told me the Packers a couple of years ago. No way. They lost JAGs. No one they lost comes close to Sean Lee, and we lost not only him but the guy who stepped up for him and was awesome, despite people assuring me he couldn't be.

    It's not an excuse, we have to keep going. I am just blown away by the injuries.
