The team seems to be taking shape.

Just a few free agent moves left and then the draft.

Today's moves have more of a blah feeling to them. Blake is supposedly horrible in coverage. Geno is Geno. I am actually surprised Herzlich is back... he's basically an expensive special teams player now.

in coverage" and "not a good cover corner."

I'd think that would be a liability as a CB, but what do I know?

the ST type moves.
Valentino How Art Thou

This is not a big deal, he'll be given an opportunity to earn a roster spot. He's already on the bubble as far as even making the team.
One thing about Herzlich  
Bill in TN : 3/20/2017 8:58 pm : link
I believe he can effectively long snap, and would be insurance against DeOssie going down.
I actually like the Gino signing

The others should cover up any needs going into draft....But I fully expect a corner and Lber selected in this draft especially
It just amazes me

that Herz is still on this team....
Blah..

I agree with you Eric about this. I cant say I am a fan of any of these but I am ok with bringing Robinson back. I think he is ok in coverage but a bit over-hyped around here. He had some good games and I hope in year two of the defense he can make some impact plays.

Cheap leadership and tough. Also an underrated aspect is he plays on goaline defense. I don't get why people obsess over a signing that's strictly meant for special teams. If he takes snaps away from kennard you can complain
What leadership

and toughness?
dollars for Sensabaugh from the Steelers

It seems like every decade I have followed this team there is always a Herz on the team that sticks around forever. Good special teams play is the common component with this player. I like seeing a guy like Herz stick with the same team for years and years. Even if he's limited he serves a role. Why get angry about it?
