None of those are really core guys. Obviously there are some guys on that list that we would rather not lose, but in the business that is the NFL, this is a fact of every off-season. In the NFL, you build a solid foundation first, and expand your team around those key elements. That being said, I for one think we have a hell of a foundation in place.
