    RB
    Toughest part about RB is that Edmonds and Conner are two legit starters even if they are unproven or low-end. Sometimes vets prefer situations with an open opportunity over just being depth.
    Todd Gurley
    Duke Johnson
    Lev Bell
    Frank Gore

    WR
    Tough part here is that we are likely only in the market for another outside WR. I only add Amendola because he would be a nice vet option if the Cards want to move on from Isabella.
    Danny Amendola
    Damiere Byrd
    Dez Bryant

    TE
    I have said in other threads I don't believe we will be using a TE much. On that note, it is more about adding a professional body than anything else.
    Jesse James
    Tyler Eifert
    Darren Fells
    Trey Burton

    OL
    Both of these guys have had recent injuries but also were difference makers. I don't believe either is likely, but they could be nice fliers.
    Mitchell Schwartz
    Trai Turner

    DL
    All four still have a little in the tank. Peters is more of a NT at this point in time. The rest are interior pass rush options. Peters and Atkins are the favorites, Atkins being some insurance for Watt and Phillips.
    Geno Atkins
    Corey Peters
    Jurrell Casey
    Kawaan Short

    S
    Malik Hooker just on a wing and a prayer.

    CB
    Vets who probably need a zone scheme with a nice pass rush to be successful but will play the assignment coverage VAnce likes.
    Casey Hayward
    Richard Sherman
    Steven Nelson
    Brian Poole
    Jason McCourty
    Bashaud Breeland
    Jonathan Joseph

    ill add Gareon Conley, CB

    young, opted out last year. His best grades are playing man, which is what VJ does

    it seems like a cheap flyer on a guy who was drafted in the first round not that long ago

    I don't see any options beside Nelson
    Probably is better waiting for late cuts

    I really can't understand why anybody wants Frank Gore anymore.

    I would rather give Eno, or any other unsigned, or better yet 52 man roster cut a chance over him.

    He can get the job done for what you need and he is ok with a complimentary role. Not many good vets are. Eno Benjamin just sucks at this point.

    Since he never played in the regular season and he had no PS games, we just don't know what he can do. That's why I hope we'll have a TC in order to find out. Seems pretty certain that he can't play ST's and that hurts him. I would think that if we have PS games he'll get an opportunity to be a kick/punt returner which would help him make the 53. If not I doubt he makes the team.

    I would love Byrd back. He did some great things for us. He is better than Izzy and I think still a bit better than Johnson.

    Corey Peters is almost a must IMO. He would look great clogging the running lanes between JJ, CJ and Golden

    I thought Ward looked good on the play he scored on. Quite telling he got a shot over Eno.

    dude looked like he was shot out of a cannon on that TD. Thought it was weird he never even got one more touch that game.

    I'd love to have Corey Peters back, but I understand that the team is waiting on a medical report from his season ending injury.

    Ward - I was surprised as well. I got to watch him during warm-ups vs Carolina and he looked legit (speed/agility).
