Default who are we going to lose via free agency?

were definitely going to lose players via free agency, but who do you think we will lose? we lost chris hope and randle el the year we won the big show, but who do you think is gone now? i think well get rid of marvel smith, and maybe keep starx at LT, but he needs to take less money than what he got this past year. obvioulsy keeping kemoteau is important too. I think biggest concern is keeping mcfadden. thoughts?

We're really lucky this time -- we're not going to lose anyone who can't be easily replaced (or who we already have someone on our roster who can fill their shoes)

We will not lose any impact players (at least players we don't have a replacement for). Marvel Smith is most likely gone, Starks may be back as a backup (this is interesting....he's got 2 rings and wasn't awful), and Kemo will probably come back.

Washington may get a boatload of money but that's why we drafted Sweed. (We may have to sign a WR in the offseason for depth).

McFadden is my only concern, but Gay played great down the stretch.

Foote will probably leave, but Timmons outplayed him anyways.

Let McFadden go. He isn't worth the kind of money he wants.

Everyone including #20 can be easily replaced in the off-season. We're very lucky this time around.

I'm most concerned about McFadden. I know Gay has played great, but I think BMac could be a solid corner for the next 6-7 years for us.
Although, we won't lose anyone on our D line to free agency we really need to get some youth in there next year. So in 2 to 3 years they are ready to step in as both Hampton and Smith are aging.

This all seems likely. I just really hope somebody outbids us for Starks and he goes.
