  1. Wow, nice to hear Drew throw some love to the much-maligned Ray Edwards, who most of the fans always seemed to want to bench for Brian Robison. Edwards started the better part of four years for us, was always better against the run than Robison, and had developed into a good pass rusher for a LDE. When the team tanked in 2010, I was all for trading Adrian Peterson and Jared Allen for draft picks to rebuild the team, and would have liked to have seen Robison moved over to RDE and Edwards re-signed instead of being allowed to go off to Atlanta and blow up his career.

    Yes, after touting him throughout 2015, I admit I had my doubts about Anthony Harris after last year, so its great to see him live up to my earlier expectations. Not only am I happy about our depth at safety, I wouldn’t be surprised if Harris gives Sendejo a run for the starting SS next year. And I still wouldn’t mind bringing back Antone Exum to back-up in the slot next year! Taylor Heinicke, too, BJ.

    Neither Easton nor Sirles were drafted, per pro-football-reference.com, but Spielman traded for both of them.

    David Morgan with the best hair on the team?!? Oh, hell no! Tres Waynes, baby, Tres Waynes.
