This team is going to have to make big - and rock the boat - kind of changes. We have a major salary cap issue right now. We're paying ALOT of money to some who are just, ummm, cruising along collecting checks.

I like Colon and when he plays, he's great. But all the holding penalties. False starts. Scuffles and temper issues. Is it worth it in the end? We had similar issues with Kemoeatu - could've been great - but dragged himself down with excessive performance penalties and temper issues that cost us more than it helped us.

You're not alone. Colon is good. But he just can't stay on the field. I rather save those $1.2M cap and give it to Foster who's underrated IMO. Foster is a decent starting guard who I think can still improve his plays.

Foster is a marginal starting NFL G. Yes, he's plays several positions, and yes he's been durable, but to say he is a good G is not factual. He's been good for us not because he's a great player, but because he's a guy that stays healthy enough to play. He is only slightly better than Legurski because he is a little stronger, but truth be told, Legs is a much better technician.

BTW, Anybody watch that kid from Pitt, John Malecki Sunday? Looks like he's got the counter blocking down pretty good....

i think foster is gone.some one is going to offer more money.
Starks and Colon can not be let go for nothing.
I know this is not usually done but what about a sign and trade(Starks)
If we sign and keep him at Lt i would not have a problem but i think we could get value in a trade.
2 teams
chicago-need a LT and where the draft the top LT with be gone.For them to move up in the first round it will cost at least a 3rd round.SEE if they would give us their 3rd round
Miami-their Lt Jake long Is a free agent and is going to demand big money.Sign Starks and trade him for 3rd round.Miami could use the savings to address other needs in free agency.

Colon should be traded suggestion
Jacksonville-they need line help.TRade for forth round.

I think both deals are fair.We get draft picks and cap space.
Trade partners get to upgrade areas of need with proven starters instead of hopeful draft pick

Santonio Holmes was traded for a 5th round pick.

I don't think there are teams that would give a 3rd for Starks or a 4th for Colon.

Hell Randy Moss was traded for a 3rd round pick.

You are taking about two player that we traded with issue.Moss was playing when he wanted to and gave a half hearted effort.Holmes well we all know about him.

These are fair trades for both teams.Chicago has a big investment in cutler.No new coach is going not to improve that offensive line right away.Why take a chance on a unproven rookie when you could get a proven vet.
Miami -the new owner has to do something to excite the fan bass.Jake long will cost them at least 12m a year.why do that why they could get Starks,wallace and jennings for the cost of LONG.
