They are also the most replaceable. McQuistan was the swiss-army knife. Not a full-time starter but a valuable reserve. Breno has gotten better but he is certainly replaceable and I'd be shocked if he didn't have a draft pick for competition this offseason. I'd also expect a draft pick to challenge Mike Rob.
I think if a modest deal for Tate could be worked out I'd do it. PC has said before that Tate is the best at going up and getting the ball. He's got a knack for getting the football at it's highest peak.
I think Farwell, Maragos, McQuistan, M-Rob, and Breno are all gone after this year. I think Rice and Miller will be asked to restructure after 2013 or be cut. Depending on what happens in the draft.
