  1. The GMEN could use Collins the way the Falcons and Cards use Jones and Bucannon. Move Collins into a hybrid outside LB/SS and sign Mathieu to play FS. It was already stated that Gettleman wants to rebuild the front seven. Well! The dline is on rookie contracts. And money will be spent to sure up the back end of the defense. Vernon and Jenkins will be traded to free up cap space. Sam Beal will get a CB spot in 2019, the GMEN didn’t use a much needed 2019 3rd rounder for him to sit. Don’t be surprised if Patrick Peterson will man the other CB spot next year as well. With a new HC again in Arizona, means all new schemes and PP might want to start over in a new scenery and familiar defense.
