Hopefully, a mod will see fit to sticky this thread so that we don't have to keep searching for it if it goes off the top page and that the 2019/2020 thread will be locked.

NOTE: This year we have a NEW roster move. The opt-out due to Covid. The player's contract will TOLL (meaning it won't advance). They'll receive either $150K or $300K based on whether or not they are in the "High Risk" category.

I'd be fine if every one the defensive players re-signed. We had one of the very best defenses in the NFL. On the other hand, our offense couldn't score 15 against the Titans.

Only guy I truly want back is Slater out of that list.

KVN is a goner, he wants the big bucks, BB won’t pay up.
Maybe Jamie Collins is worth bringing back since neither Roberts or Hightower can cover.

Chung is a likable guy but he is up there in age and he has been banged up for a while, this position must require a big upgrade.

Guys. The point of this thread, as it always has been is to TRACK the transactions.. Not to discuss what we want to have happen. There are at least 2 other threads going that I know of for that.

Would like to see Calhoun back on a low contract.
I think Obi could be a developmental replacement for Chung.
He's definitely in the mix.
I think Chung lost 2 steps last season.
Could he make the change to linebacker?
I love everything Chung is a true BB player I hope he's back at a very reasonable cost.
