QUOTE OF THE DAY
GM Buddy Nix
On addressing depth concerns on the roster:

I hope so. I mean we did at the positions. You just have to feel like these guys are going to do what they’re expected to do and they are the right kind of people and they’re good enough to play. I mean these linemen are huge, and we got some good speed at the skill positions.”
