Flozell Adams is still available as well.

I'd also like to point out that they used a 1st round pick on an overrated DL'man (Cameron Heyward from Ohio State) rather than going after a Derrek Sherrod or something.

I'm sorry to see this happen and I'm sure come November if we beat them again this will be "THE reason" why we won, but they did it to themselves. They invested a ton of money into line backers and safeties, but no money into their OL and corners.
