Although Kevin Ellison was only a sixth round pick, many had him pegged to be the starting Strong Safety. He is a tweener of linebacker and safety that will lay the lumber on the offense. However, with all of the talk that he will be a starter, he decided that he should hold out on training camp to make some bucks.

Bad idea. Because of the hold out, Norv Turner has questions of Kevin even making the team, let alone a starting role. Because of our lack of depth at safety, I'm sure we will sign him.

But remember, Norv wasn't at all pleased that Kevin was a hold-out. Don't be surprised if Turner has a zero-tolerance policy in this particular case. If he has any mess-ups, I see him at the bottom of the depth chart.

That leaves cornerback Steve Gregory to compete for the job. If it comes to that, let's hope that Hart can take back his old job; Gregory didn't do all that swell in the lime light during 2008.

I'm still waiting for a transition into the 3-5; it's an instant fix for this defense. Lol.
