    Thought Tereshinski has a shot at the PS. Looks like that spot is gonna goto Betschart now. The rest were pure fodder especially the 'leg' as Mike Scifres affectionately called Billy V.

    Osgood might be gone, and it will be fun watching the melt-down if he's released.

    ...I think he's an inspired special teams player who probably made others, in a similar situation, try to follow his lead. It goes downhill from there. He started crying sour grapes over his being a special teams wizard and not the WR he desperately wants to be. He started barking up the wrong tree because A.J. looks at character almost as much as athleticism. Osgood's character took one good beating when he did his disappearing act after complaining. If he's forgiven, then he'll stay. If not...the brass has already realized they don't need his bulls**t and will look for some inspired play from someone else. Someone who is just grateful to get the chance!

    Cut Osgood IMO. We have others that excel on our special teams that also have great attitudes, Siler being a good example. Let Floyd take Osgood's spot and trade him. Should be able to get something decent for a pro bowler.

    If we trade him, no team is going to gives a first day choice for him. A fifth would be highway robbery. If I was the dude making the decision, I'd be stockpiling beef in the PS. We have plenty of depth everywhere else.

    If there was one concern from me it's our lines


    We need more depth on both sides
