In response to mgraham's comment:
this is interesting because of Pollard. how did he do this year with Tenneessee (?) I would compare him to Bryan Cox , butthead with Miami but when he was our butthead i loved him,
is he still the intimidating yet proficient SS used to be ? He might not be that costly.
Ward is intimidating ( ask Gronk and Josh Gordon... could we get him?) but he is not really a tackler as much as a torpedo guy, aka Merriweather. i am not wild about that type of safety because if they miss BIG GAIN!.
imo if we want to find the cheapest yet most ba ng for your buck SS it would be Pollard. good tackler, can cover (its not his strength but he can do it) and make the impact hit. Whitner would be the best ba ng for buck if he came here cheap but I think he would require more $ so yeah.
Ward is good. He's alot better than Meriweather imo
