I think it's more 95-5 that Preston is coming back. I don't think he's in danger of being cut at all anymore. He is earning his money, he does a lot on this defense. These other guys, while nice for later round picks and inexperienced haven't proven even close to holding down an edge down in and out over the course of a year like Preston.
Garvin may have had more snaps, but a rookie Gary was also behind 2 brand new shiny high paid FA's that were playing superbly. I don't know what Gary's count was, but by the end, he was more productive than the stats show or people gave him credit for. He also looked in a different league than Garvin from the start.
There's no way i'd enter the season as "all in" and do it with Garvin as a starter.
Don't forget he was also behind a solid Fackrell as well. If Preston isn't here look for a bargain veteran and a VERY high draft pick brought in...Preston back it frees up the need some on EDGE/OLB for Gute in the draft, which you know he'd appreciate being able to slide more to BPA
