Interesting. I realize there are many barriers to making a move now for a guy like this and many legit reasons we might not want to do it – but it’s also at least interesting to consider a line-up with Bob Sanders at strong safety and Nick Collins at free safety. Throw in Woodson, Tramon, Bishop, Matthews, Raji, Pickett etc – and offenses would opt to punt on 1st down. There would be no point.
Of course this won’t happen because TT/MM don’t like injury-prone guys (except Justin Harrell) and Sanders would come with a guarantee that he’d be injured at some point in the season. Because of his injuries, he is very unreliable. (Of course, when healthy, he’s quite reliable.) Also, he will probably still command a decent salary and frankly, Charlie Peprah looked pretty good as the fill-in safety on a Super Bowl winning team. And, we have Morgan Burnett coming back as well.
Still, I always enjoy taking at least a brief moment to consider cool player combos like Nick Collins next to Bob Sanders.
