Rocky Benard will be released / DT's in Free Agency

I mentioned we were trying to renegotiate with him in other threads but we were unable to and now he'll be released.

With the release of Benard we are down to three total DTs (2 Nose Tackles, 1 Under Tackle). Here's a list of UTs available.

Tier 1

Brandon MeBane -- SEATTLE
Cullen Jenkins* -- EAGLES

Tier 2

Ty Warren -- BRONCOS
Tommie Harris -- COLTS
Anthony Adams -- BEARS
Amobi Okoye -- BEARS

Tier 3

Wallace Gilberry*
Eric Foster
Derek Landri -- EAGLES
Ray McDonald* -- 49ERS
Marcus Spears* -- COWBOYS

* 3-4 DEs who have a quick enough first step to convert to the 3-technique in our defense.

Alan Branch for me

he would be a cheap run plugger with Joseph sliding to UT

Joseph isn't a 3-technique tackle, potentially he has a chance to play either DT position but right now he can't hardly get on the field for NT, his natural position.


Tommie Harris and Wallace Gilberry would be nice fits. We are familiar with Gilberry so that ought to be interesting.

ehh. no big loss. Has he even made an impact play in two years?
I'd go find Jay Alford over Bernard at this point.

^^ Exactly, he was a bust signing. Lets do better this time around.

Ty Warren was just released by the Patriots. He'd have to go to the top of the wish list for us. Of course his hip would have to check out ok but if healthy he would be the perfect signing to play UT and show Austin the ropes.

It seems the Cowboys have interest in Warren and its mutual.

Canty and Joseph were working as the starters today, no surprises
