MO and carr. Now we get to upgrade the corner position. They thought they upgraded it in 2012 when they signed carr and drafted mo. They were wrong. That position has been held back ever since. But now, since the 2 false hopes are finally gone, we get to upgrade corner

Stephen Gilmore was the CB I wanted in the Claiborne draft, he is the last CB of that Class to get a big deal by the 5 time champions NE Patriots.

I believe Desean Shead would be a better Prospect 6-2 212 LBs and 4.53 CB-Safety who had 81 Tackle and 14 PD for the Seahawks last year

Ronald Leary's absence will hurt the most.  He played for his job and a new contract.  He was reliable and solid.

Wilcox and Church will be missed immediately. Might as well have let Lee go. What players led in tackles solo and asst?

Agree.  But we know he earned a contract Cowboys could not offer.  He was gone all along.

 

Fir me, I thought they had a legit shot at Carr.  The secondary was the best unit on D last season, and Carr was part of the reason.  I suspect the team will miss him on game day.

Biggest loss is Carr, by a slight nod over Church, and mainly because he never missed a game.

 

Great cornerback, or average cornerback, doesn't matter, when the coaches set their lineup, Carr was a starting cornerback.  Church missed a few games here and there, including several last year....

Would agree if not for Collins, assuming he has recovered from the injury, he's an at least adequate replacement.  Now if Looney or Cooper were the only guys available to replace Leary, yeah, I'd agree, but Collins played very well as a rookie, putting him between Smith and Frederick could result in arguably the greatest left side offensive line in history...

The biggest loss this season will be filling the lost of Doug Free,  We dont have a player on this roster who can step up for Free.  I dont see The college rank having the talent Free possess.  Leary out played Collin, and Collins have not played to the level he played in College.  Had Leary stayed,  I predicted he would of beaten out Collins for the OG spot
