I actually would prefer to see Brown as starting FS and Thompson as starting SS but that is just my opinion but since I don't see that happening I want to see Elam here next year to be our next great safety. I wouldn't mind Huff but I wouldn't pursue him if it cost us Dumervil, Dansby, or Harrison when we could draft a Safety that could potentially be better.
I like Dansby but I don't see us pursuing him. Have we even shown interest in him? He seems like one of those guys the fans will want more than the team.
Here's the deal: the other day, I read a report that the Ravens will be putting McClellin at ILB full time now. This is a telling & revealing move and here is why:
It means we are freeing up the OLB position. We have McClain, and while I am not at all a fan he & McClellin have been very effective ILBs here before. They will provide some type of veteran presence, and I think the Ravens move forward with that. I do not see us acquiring any free agent ILB. I see our next LBs coming as drafted or undrafted players.
Also, Harbs mentioned Levine as a guy who could come and start if we lost Reed just the other day. Another telling move. I see us pursuing Huff because he shouldn't be expensive, is younger than Ed, and is a nice stop-gap.
I see us getting an OLB or a S free agent but no ILB FAs. Just my opinion.
