    If we were to tag Osgood would he get paid as a top 5 WR or a top 5 ST specialist?

    I believe that since he is officially listed as a WR, then that category gets applied.

    If that's true, no way is he tagged.

    BTW -- Welcome back Sheldon!

    Unrestricted DT Alfonso Boone - He played well, not sure how much interest there is for him though. Might be easy to keep for depth.

    TE Brandon Manumaleuna - Should be easy to keep, don't think anyone else would grab him.

    C Dennis Norman - keep for depth maybe?

    WR Kassim Osgood - Known for his ST play, but has made it known that he WANTS to play WR. He might be gone.

    DT Ian Scott - Keep, we need depth here.

    TE Kris Wilson - Keep.

    RT Jon Runyan - He said he's running for Congress after this season. Doubt that he ever plays again.

    Restricted in an uncapped year

    ILB Tim Dobbins - Keep

    DT Antonio Garay - Bye.

    C Eric Ghiaciuc - Not sure on his status. If we have Nick, Mruc & Norman then is this guy needed?

    WR Malcom Floyd - KEEP!

    OLB Marques Harris - Picked up late in the season. I think he goes.

    WR Vincent Jackson - KEEP!!!

    DL Travis Johnson - KEEP!!!

    OT Marcus McNeill - KEEP!!!

    OLB Shawne Merriman - Depends on what he wants.

    LB Dontarrious Thomas - Another late season pickup. Gone.

    RB Darren Sproles - KEEP!!!

    QB Charlie Whitehurst - Don't know here.

    Restricted

    RT Jeromey Clary - Got better as the year went on. Keep for depth.

    Exclusive rights

    OLB Antwan Applewhite - Another depth player.

    FB Mike Tolbert - KEEP. Proved himself big time this year.
