Things are about to open up a little bit with money coming available, what player is sitting out there in free agency or what player on another team do you feel we could possibly acquire to address an area that we haven't addressed with the draft?

I'm kinda watching that situation with Will Smith in New Orleans. They are trying to play him at Linebacker and that is a big, big joke. If he were to be released, I'd like to add him because we need some depth on that D-line.

I don't think or anticipate any big name FA's being brought in.

So you would want us to play him at LB instead? lol...he has no business here

I think Bradshaw and Breaston could both be signed....which would probably cost cotch and one of redman/dwyer their jobs

Noooooo. LOL. Of course I don't want to play him at LB. I'd like for him to be an option for us on the D-line. Hahahahahahahaha. That was a great laugh K-Train.

I could see Breaston but why pay Bradshaw who is simi-busted up all the time? I'm curious to see where Dwyer is at...shape wise that is.

Dwyer is supposedly not in the shape they'd prefer him to be in.

Dwyer had 2 years to take advantage of a good situation , instead he chose to be a lazy uninspired lump of lard. I don't see changing his ways this year.

If he is not ready this year ..... he is stupid and lazy.

Well, sometimes you know, some serious competition is what a guy need to get his butt in gear.

I think we'll see a few minor moves. Legursky being resigned. I don't see Bradshaw and Breaston though. They addressed those positions in the draft.

I think they are still keeping an eye on Beanie Wells.

Id like to see them bring in Andre Caldwell and bring back Casey Hampton as a backup. Maybe Doug Legursky. Id also like them to upgrade their backup offensive tackle. Withers doesn't do it for me. Are there any backup tackle available that fit into a zone blocking scheme?

breaston still might come in. I don't think they want anything to do with Legs and for good reason. The two UDFA Cs they signed are both likely better players. Another DL body would be good. Maaaaybe a vet RB if the ones here are having issues.

Breaston, Beanie, and maybe Big Snack.

I would be surprised with anytime else other than camp fodder.

I would like to see them lock up Cortez Allen with this money before he has a big year and command more money. I mean he's already been regarded as the best nickel corner in the league.

By who?

It is easy to say lock him up and it MAY be the best thing they could do. However, there are two problems:

1) If he is the "best nickel corner in the league", you can bet that he and his agent know it and will want to extort as much as they can. It takes two willing parties to lock the guy up.

2) It is the classical dilemma. If they do not sign him now and he performs well, he signs somewhere else next year and everyone b!tches about the organization because we never keep young talent. If they do sign him now and he performs anything less than stellar, everyone b!tches about him being wasted cap space (see comments here regarding Polamalu, T. & Woodley, L.).

Granted, Colbert and company get paid to make the right decisions on these matters but all the wannabe GMs will swear on their mother's graves that they were right about Allen two years earlier regardless of the outcome.

I saw every game this year and heard the people covering the game mention that on atleast 3 occasions. I can also give you two reasons why they should.

1. He has shown improvement each year from locking down Gronk to locking down everyone's slot man. I mean if he wasn't an elite nickel corner why start him on the outside but play him in the nickel when we have 3 corners on the field. I mean we've all said Gay was a better slot corner than on the outside.


2. They already made the decision when they allowed Lewis to leave without even an offer. If they don't plan to sign him who will they start next year? a rookie? Gay? Honestly I don't think it's a dilemma at all, there is no other move to make there.

Also when have they ever cared about what outside people felt about their roster moves or any moves for that matter.
