It doesn't matter much, but Coghlan doesn't have an expiring contract. He'll be eligible for arbitration one last time this coming offseason.

DiamondMind wrote:whyd they drop Varvaro already, he was good as recently as 2013. I'd rather just cut Jackson. Or Turner. Or Beeler. Why Varvaro?

Only a partial answer to your question.

3) Odighizuwa- DE UCLA, Grasu was a equal value pick and a position of need but Odighizuwa will likely be a better player and also a position of need.


As a DE or OLB?
