Emery's squad: Cleaning up Angelo's mess....


The previous regime had way more misses than hits, be they draft picks, free agency or trade but a few of them did pan out. I'm under the impression that Emery is remaking the roster, coaching and staff in his vision and will be getting rid of the majority of the players, coaches and executives associated with Angelo. Emery shook up the executive staff as soon as he took the reigns. He greased the wheel for Lovie Smith and his staffs exit by not helping hire a real offensive coordinator or retooling the O line. Now it's on to the players, Brian Urlacher was the first was the first big name, even though he was actually the late Mark Hatley's pick, with smaller names like Nick Roach, Toeina, Davis, and Spaeth thrown in but the surprise was Lance Louis. The have been no extensions for Henry Melton, Jay Cutler, Charles Tillman, Tim Jennings, Devin Hester, Robbie Gould, Major Wright and some of the other lesser known players like Garza, Webb, Mannelly and Steltz heading to free agency leading me to believe they will be allowed to walk. The next wave has Brandon Marshall, Lance Briggs, Gabe Carimi and Chris Conte in walk years along with some of the role players. Julius Peppers is the last big name brought in but his walk year isn't until 2016.

I am partial to all the players in bold letters, except Webb and maybe Carimi, so I think there is room on the roster for all those guys with an exception for Garza because a more reliable Center is needed. With all this being said, Emery could create a lot more cap space by extending those players versus letting them hit free agency but no moves have been made or even hinted at.
