DL: There is alot of body's, but nobody that stands out. I thought Chapman and at some point Hughes were going to push for more playing time in the middle, but they were not able to outplay journeymen Franklin. On the outside, Redding had his moments and is one of the team leaders, Moala made some plays, Jean-Francois, at times, the game is won or lost in the trenches and our trenches, both, need some bigtime upgrades, the Colts seem to be high on late comer Pendleton. Moala,Franklin and Mathews are all free agents, don't see Franklin back,the hope is that somebody steps up in the middle, Moala adds quality depth.
* at least 1, preferably 2 new starters
LB: Mathis leads the way and leads the team, had another Pro bowl year and led the league in sacks, on the other side, the rotation of Walden and Werner was inconsistent, Werner really needs to step up next year. On the inside,Freemen had a Pro bowl season, Angerer is probably gone, he looked like a real up and coming player, but can't stay healthy, McNary looked good filling in, Sheppard adds quality depth,Adongo is a interesting player, lights out when it comes to measurables, but very little experience. Conner,Sidbury and Angerer are free agents and not likely to be back
* If Werner can step up and McNary is starter quality, which I think he is, this is not a high priority, some of the bodies could be brought back, for depth
