    As far as safeties go: Phillips and Rolle are the obvious starters, but Sash and Jones will not be enough to guarantee ourselves back-up talent. Free agency and the draft should provide a couple of players to complete for that fourth spot. Which probably means that Sash is the preferred choice for that 3rd spot... but we have yet to see Jones wear the uniform.

    About CBs: Price and Web are clear starters... after that, it gets weird. Ross is a UFA, and looks like he could get better offers somewhere else (because other teams are more desperate for his services). Thomas should be given the opportunity to prove that should complete for Prince's position. I really have no idea about the other 3. They all seem to be mediocre, and that in itself is scary, because I don't want Ross back. Free agency and the draft could help out here.

    I would keep Tryon, at the very least.

    The fact that he played his final game of the year with a broken arm for more than one half the game--and made a big play on special teams coverage with it, before coming out of the game--tells me all I need to know about his ability, toughness, desire and attitude. And his injury, a broken arm, is not an injury that makes you doubtful of his ability to return to form (unlike a knee). We bring him back.
