I just found out that we visited with Luis Castillo (DE from SD) already. He is also visited with New England. I wonder if that will develop into anything? Signing him could make someone like Dorsey expendable as trade bait to get another draft pick. Im sure someone like New England would love to have someone like Dorsey who could play 3-4 or 4-3, or even St Louis.

Again it depends on the price and at some point roster shuffling but I can understand the interest in him.
Wouldn't mind him for the right price, but I thought he was getting up there in age, and has injury concerns. I would add him for depth, but would not look to add him and trade Dorsey...I think that would be a step back for us because we would be replacing Dorsey with an older player not a younger one.
Again, it's not that I dislike Dorsey or don't think he is great, but he isn't an ideal fit for our scheme. The fact that he has done so well isatestament to his dedication and skill. He is a free agent next year, and would command a lot of money on the market as a 4-3 DT ... more than what he is worth as a 3-4 DE. I just don't want to lose him without getting something in return.
Now that I think about it, does anyone know if we is going to be a restricted or unrestricted FA next year? If he is a RFA, then I retract everything I have said about trading him.
