I read a while back that Aldon was unlikely to be suspended based on how serious he took the situation with his checking into rehab and what not.

^Totally with you Ben. Dixon is a standout player on our special teams unit, and I would argue he is one of the top 3 or 4 guys on that unit.
People forget because of our offense's (Kap's) inability to score a TD on the final drive of the Superbowl and the NFCCG on Sunday, that we had two MAJOR special team lapses that ultimately played a huge part in us losing those two games. I just dont know how comfortable I am with saying goodbye to one of the few great special teamers we have, especially given what I just said. If anything, we need to solidify our special teams, not take away one of the best players from it.
Now, if Dixon refuses to re-sign to play special teams, that is a totally different story. But for us to simply say we dont want to re-sign him is crazy to me.
Speaking of crazy thoughts (or what most of you would probably perceive as a crazy thought), I would rather us cut LaMichael James and re-sign Dixon than simply letting Dixon walk.
Not to correct you, but we actually have 13 picks in the upcoming draft. And like I stated earlier in this thread (or the old one), we have 6 picks in the first 3 rounds.
