I'd add punter to this list and I'll be happy.

Would anyone else here want the team to take a shot at Prince Amuakmara if Terrance doesn't come back?

I would. I like his game. Unfortunately he can't seem to stay healthy. I'd probably make that gamble but I'm sure he'd want to be paid like a starter. I'm not sure we would be the highest bidder given that we already have Rhodes and Munnerlyn with Waynes presumably going to start next season. I'd be all for competition to see if Waynes can actually win the job outright between himself and Amuakmara.

I'm not a fan of his character, and that colors my judgement. He would be interesting weapon for Zimmer, but I think I would shy away.
