Love Wild - but I hope we seriously look at bringing in some stiff competition for both LB spots.

We may still need a starter, as well as depth.

We've sure shown some loyalty to Wild these last couple years. Let's hope it pays off next year and we have a backup plan just in case.

Santos Knox did fairly well at WIL. So which ever player starts we appear to have a back up. Even if Santos Knox starts at MLB we have some crossover ability depending on who else we find in free agency or TC at which position.

Good signing, as long as we have other options at WIL for when he gets injured.  Wild can start, is a special teams daemon, and is also a backup long-snapper.  I'd say we probably got him at a discount compared to his salary last season.

Wild wasn't on my 'must sign' list. He's injured too often to be counted on. Hope he took a pay cut, cuz he hasn't earned his full salary for a couple of years.

Welcome back, I guess.

Good signing. He seems to fit in well with the team's identity and is pretty versatile, too. Hopefully, he's backing up Santos-Knox and starting on ST this season.

I am ok with this signing if he took a good size pay cut and rotates in and not play every down. He just is not what he was 2-3 years ago and we need better at that position.

I'm sure Walters didn't break the bank here, probably a goods value deal, with incentives.  But he is a good guy, backup LS, solid teamer and an amazing tackler when healthy.  Good signing,  Not a must, but a good.  Now that we have a couple D signed, maybe more dominoes fall.

Does the cap go up this year? Thought I read or heard somewhere it will go up a bit.
