    Now this is interesting. The trade for Felix Jones is making more sense now. I think if Dwyer has a good showing again there’s no way you can keep both he and Red. Think Red might be the odd man out seeing as though his health has been a question mark going back to last season.

    The everlasting gobstopper,… uh, I mean stinger.

    No way! They will keep at least four, methinks: Bell, Dwyer, Redman, and LaRod. Both Batch and Jones are going to have to claw their way in depending on injuries. Batch is a good special teams guy and an experienced blocker, but hardly dynamic and not big enough to feature. Jones might make it as a fifth RB. I think cap hit is barely on their minds right now.
