Really hope the interest in Hooper and Schobert are smokescreens. I'm sure Gute will inquire what they are looking for to gauge the market. However, Hooper is just not impressive. He is stiff and cannot get open on his own. Paying top FA for that skill set is not where it it's at. Instead, looking at a guy like Hunter Henry, who is young and might sign a prove-it deal (he has battled injury), seems like a better approach to me. I like Schobert - he is more of a playmaker than Martinez, but he will command top dollar and run defense is not his forte. I hope the interest in Kwiatkowski from the Bears is real. Young guy, ascending, smart player, rangy, and plays the run very well.
