Antonio Bryant

He proved in the 2008 season that he could be a top receiver. With the franchise tag placed on him, does he get his extension or does he test the market? IMO it will be determined when he returns from injury and how well he does when he gets back. If Bryant returns and finishes the season with 70+ receptions and 700 yds, he will test the market for a team that will pay him and could be a contender. There is no such thing with loyalty, it is a business and he will be looking for the best opportunity available. 50% chance of returning

Maurice Stovall

Jon Gruden had a love affair going on with Stovall but he hasn't panned out. IMO Gruden wanted Stovall to be the great draft pick steal but instead turned out to be just another so-so player that Gruden had become customed to drafting. He is the type of receiver the will get you 30 receptions for 200-250 yds a season. I see Stovall looking for someone to take a chance on him. 10% chance of returning

Mike Nugent

I don't even know if Nugent will make it through the season let alone wondering if there is a choice in the off season. 0% chance of returning

Jeremy Trueblood

I can say Trueblood has turned into a decent Right Tackle. Him and Davin Joseph do a great job on the right side and have a good partnership. IMO Trueblood will return and get a decent amount of money. He is young and he is strong. 90% chance of returning

Jimmy Wilkerson

He was a solid pickup in the off season and would have given us great depth at the Defensive End position if we had good starters. We don't and I feel he is doing what he can and has the most upside of any of the ends on the team. I hope we do keep him and build up the right and left side with him in the rotation. 75% chance of returning

Angelo Crowell

It is a shame that he was injured before we had the opportunity to see how good he is. He has all of the ability in the world but his health is a major problem. I would like to see us get him for one more season to see but I doubt we will. 10% chance of returning

Barrett Ruud

He has the resume, he has the ability, and he could be a valuable asset to this team for years to come. I think it was completely wrong not to sign him to an extension and I think it will hurt us in the long run if it doesn't happen before he becomes a Free Agent. He is a top notch MLB in this league, even though this new defense has people questioning his ability. Everyone on the defense is being questioned. IMO he will test the market and he should. It will be a bidding war and I don't think we come on top. 25% chance of returning

Will Allen

Back up journey man that hasn't been able to move into the starting lineup. He has the opprotunity to show some skills with Phillips going down to injury, so we will have to see. IMO the only way he stays on the team is he blows up in the next two weeks before Jackson returns. 5% chance of returning

We need to be big players in the Free Agency to be competitive for next year and use the draft for more depth.

Is this too soon? or can we look at this years team and face reality?
