The only caution I would add on Tillman based on past experience is different System, Different personell.
Duane Starks, Detha O'Neal, Shawn Springs, Chad Scott to name a few. When BB went and got these guys there was some hope. The thing is they came from teams that atleast had some sort of pass rush. What i noticed is that once they got here, they Stunk!
I hear you Triple but to me Tillman wouldn't be a main starter but more as the vet rotational guy that could play inside and outside (think what Arrington does) so there is less risk since you are counting on him to do less.
The thing is I'm guessing Tillman will get a 2yr deal or so about $1.5-2mil per year. Conservatively Talib is looking at a 3-4 with $4-6mil and some think he might get $6-8mil so at half -> a third the price that price difference could be the difference between signing an Jones or Whitner. ....
To me the greater risk is putting more money into that type of player then a smaller investment into a roational guy.
Wonder if rather than a Tillman, they could bring back Samuel in this type of rotational/depth role? Depends on his mindset I suppose, does he still think of himself as a frontline starter. I don't see him getting paid that way any more. But with him, you would not have the system worries that Triple brings up.
Now, if he could just hold on to that damn ball...
Well Asante had a great rookie year playing in the slot. He wouldnt have the issues of playing press outside and getting beat deep. IN the slot, he wouldnt defend too many deep routes and would likely be suitable and could move outside in a pinch but who is gonna tell BB to cut Arrington who is currently making 4 mill/yr to be THAT guy.
We went thin last year when most were expected a couple CB signings. I wont get my hopes up again.
