While I felt Hope was a solid FS at best, I'm very content with the Clark signing. I think he will fill in very nicely for Hope. Let the Titans overpay him.

Beside Clark, I'm not exactly sure about the other signing your referring to. If you mean Bailey? He's depth. Nothing more, nothing less.

I'm particularly interested to see how Keisel fills in. He's really emerged as a special teams ace the past couple of seasons. I think with his speed he can be a "poor mans" Freeney-esque DE.

Thats one area we can't afford to "drop a notch".

Good point in regards to the void on Special Teams by the loss of Keisel. Everytime I saw a punt/kickoff this year I saw either BK, Kriewaldt, and/or Chidi Iwuoma makin the stop. I'm sure Cowher's got someone lined up to fill the void.

I'm sure we'll end up getting someone who can shine on ST in the draft. Hell, Frazier did good on ST's last year, and he was just a Rookie Free Agent.

I agree with the earlier post, now we need a big RB. Anybody see anyone in the draft that might fill this need? Lendale White?

Staley will be fine...playing bussies role....

They'll address RB in the draft...but not in the 1st round
