I don't think Rudolph equates to anyone leaving. In fact, I think we will carry an extra man on the roster to support the emphasis on the run as well as giving Ponder a few other targets to use. Probably will see a rotation of a blocking TE and a catching TE (Sauce/Shanc)(Dugan/Rudolph)(Rudolph/Shanc) kindof rotation.
Not a backup OLmen if he starts at C.
I would agree with Shortwell and the price, but I think he will command more now that his short kickoffs have been negated by the rule change. Old cats like him, that are excellent at FG's will now command top dollar.
Good thing for us, is there are a few of them that are FA's this year. Might help to keep the price down.
In the end, its still gonna be a chunk of money.Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.

His personal numbers are unimportant, it's what he does for the rest of the D. Ngata is a guy that commands a doubleteam simply because he'll outman a one-on-one blocking assignment. That means he fills a hole, and if he beats two guys, that's two gaps clogged by him. The NT is supposed to be responsible for both A Gaps, if two guys can fill four holes, that seriously restricts where teams can go with the ball, leaving LB's free to swoop in and make the tackle.

He can play 3-4 DE but he would be a beast on our line as the 0/1 tech which dovetails into the "What he does for the rest of the D" comment.
Put him next to K-dubb and we won't have to endure watching him only get 20ish tackles a year. Might get up there were the rest of the productive DT's are in the league, which, by the way, would eliminate the perception that our S's take bad angles trying to get to ball carriers our DT's miss.
By the way, the stuff I highlighted in red, Phat Pat used to do each and everydown.
Now no one does it.Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.

One only need to look at K-dubbs tackle production to see that the writing is on the wall.

Both are immediate upgrades and give us options as it relates to the roster uncertainty. Now I would rather we spend the money on Rice but I do not think Rosenwhore is going to be the least bit reasonable in negotiating with the Vikes. Another receiver may add a bit of leverage for the Berrian/Rice roster spots.
Bigby would be a good add to replace Madieu. Or in the event that Cook, Griff, and Winfield's combination of age and injury do not improve, we wont see a big drop off like we did last year. This is a priority but its probably a bit to far down the list to throw the kind of money it would take to land Bigby.

Here's something about Asomugha, he's been with that distraught Raider's team for way too long. I see him frequently around where I live and he's one of the best characters in this league easily. I would say we need to make our D better by going after him, but unfortunately he's at the point of his life where he really wants to win. I don't think our franchise at this moment offers that. I just can't see him coming to Minny much to my dismay.None
