Overhaul needed: Five teams with completely new looks at a position
There's some roster revamping to be done on every team every offseason in the NFL, but some teams take it to extremes at positions of need, rounding up the usual suspects and firing them all (or most of them). Here are the five teams that dramatically reconstructed themselves at one particular position, hopefully transforming their depth chart's weak link into a strength:
Tampa Bay secondary
With no Barber, no Biggers and no Aqib Talib (the talented but troubled cornerback dealt to New England last October), the Bucs secondary has been almost completely remade in a span of about seven months. The safety duo of Goldson and 2011 first-round pick Mark Barron is now one of the league's most promising, and if Revis Island returns, the peninsula of Tampa Bay is remarkably better at cornerback with the ex-Jet, Banks, as well as holdover Eric Wright.
The Dolphins wisely retained the dependable Hartline by re-signing him before free agency opened, and then they anted up to fill out the rest of their four-wide formation with Wallace, Gibson and Keller giving Miami's passing game a whole new threat level. Miami was forced to overpay the ex-Steeler Wallace to coax him to town, but his deep speed should force opposing secondaries to respect the Miami long game, and open up plenty of space underneath for Gibson, Hartline and Keller to do their damage.
