But after the first day of free agency/all of the good safety's came off the market. I immediately identified Chris Clemons as a possible good fit with Laron Landry. I know that we like to make our S's interchangeable.. But I'd rather we have a hard hitter (bit of a liability) that we can bring up in the box more and allow him to focus on making plays for the highlight reel - and a solid Free Safety / Center Fielder that is truly the last line of defense.
I think that Clemons could be had for a pretty reasonable contract, and would compliment Landry in the backfield quite well. It is possible that our FO believes we already have our FS in Howell, as he flashed some greatness last year. But if we could grab Clemons for a reasonable price, I think it would create great competition (which they love) at the FS slot. If Howell (or Sergio Brown) can develop into this than great! But at least we know we have a proven starter AND quality depth...
