I would love to sign Freeney to our squad. Imagine him & JT as our bookends. :eek:

We dont even know if JT will be on this squad next year.

JT will be back but Indy will put the tag on Freeny but it would be great to see him on the Dolphins.

I too think JT will return for another year. With that said certainly DE now becomes a serious need for Miami in the draft. Someone we can groom under Jason to replace him. JT has more than enough maturity to teach a replacement next season. At ninth we really could get the best player in the draft at either DT, DE, LB or CB. Depending on who is left the best player at at least one of these will be there at ninth. Sadly the offensive top players will be gone by the ninth pick. I hope you see my reasoning for picking defense first. All I can say is I hope offense is addressed in FA and in the other rounds.

you are foolish .. who cares if he's a big body .. he's an animal .. go after him whether JT is there or not!! we need a quick guy to put pressure from the outside

NO.

all freeney does is run to the QB, horrible run stopper. i dont want to pay big bucks for a team just to run at him like the dolphins did

I am all for the trade down. There will be some team salivating over a player and tunnel-visioned over him... moving down 3 to 8 spots, pick up an extra 2nd or 3rd rounder, and shoot for Levi Brown or D. I wouldn't mind a defensive player in rd 1, then a couple rounds of WR, QB, or O line either... Anquan Boldin was a recent, great 2nd rd pick... Chad Johnson was 2nd rd too, if I remember right.

Freeney is easily one of the most overrated players in the league. Nice thought, but would rather spend the money elsewhere.

I say Miami goes after Quentin Moses he is a hybrid OLB and DE.

Off topic but why can I see your warning level?

Freeney will either be resigned before FA or Franchised. He's also very overrated, he's horrible against the run.

Freeney IS OVERRATED. He DIDN'T have ONE full sack until the ninth game of his season this year.

No, he wasn't injured either. He just sucks.

it's more possible that freeney could become jt's replacement, we should have the money to sign him and even more if jt retires.

And we all know that its good to judge based on one bad year.

i've kept an eye on freeney since his days in SU .. highly NOT OVERRATED

And we wonder why Indy has by far the worst run D in the league...

a couple years ago he was a sack machine,, but it always makes me wonder when a guy is in his UFA season and tanks like Freeney did this year.

a DE can;t controll the inside game .. their LBs suck so thats why their run D sucks .. and did he really tank or did they put more bodies on him?

Yes, one bad year...

NO, the dude isn't that great. SERIOUSLY, ALL HE DOES IS RUSH THE PASSER. And now, tackles are starting to catch on to his ever so (not so much now) effective spin move. He hasn't done anything other than get a few sacks all his career.

He has only had 11 Pass defenses and ZERO picks in his career.
JT at the same point of his career had 26 pass deflections and three picks. He does nothing but speed rush, he's not strong enough to bull rush or flexible enough to drop back in coverage.

Plus he'll ask for the US Mint and we're not in the greatest cap shape.

While I don't think we need or could even use him in this defense AT ALL, your bashing him because he dosn't have pass defenses and picks? He plays D-End for christ sake. Those are damn near irrelevent for his position. He has never been used in the way JT is, not many have.

I'm bashing him for everything that has to do with the position. Those are just some notable stats.

P.S. They are not irrelevant, do you know how impactful bats at the line can be?

bottom line is its not going to happen, but JT + freeney=domination. The only reason his numbers are down is because he has been getting double teamed for years, with Taylor taking those he would get high numbers.
Yet Roth has the ability to become a great pass rusher and would rather have him and a really good DT instead of freeney. We need to get younger and it would be a shame to not see what roth really has.

We are slated to have around $20 Mil.

So are you saying you'd like to see almost half of that number gone when we need help in more than a few areas? Say when we would get him we would have 10 to 12 left... Not the greatest idea.

I'm not saying break the bank for him, I wouldn't mind getting him but yes we have plenty of other needs.

No thank you. He can't play the run. He is the worst good defensive end in this league because he isn't even slightly a factor on rushing plays.

We are slated to have around $20 Mil.Yeah, but we will only have around 40 signed players or so. We have a lot of holes to fill with that $20M.
As said before, Freeney can only rush the QB, he does nothing else. Most teams run right at him and have a lot of success doing it, he can't play the run. Last time I checked, DE need to be able to play the run and pass before being declared great.
