Based on what I heard and read into and by listening to Ben Volin's confirming of an idea I threw out there earlier this week...
Randy Starks will be the candidate for the Franchise Tag. $8mil cap number and you keep the DL intact adding a pass rusher sometime in the first 2 rounds to compete with Vernon and (Odrick who will still keep the role of rotating between backup DT and DE).
I also read into the Bush revelations that Bush seems a candidate to replace Davone Bess in the slot (Bess could be shopped during the draft), he is in the last year of his contract, would save us about $3mil of cap space and Bush becomes more of a playmaker in the slot upgrading the slot, which Ireland mentioned during the Senior Bowl as something they were looking at...and also puts Lamar Miller as the starting RB with Bush sspelling him and becoming the 3rd down back. Thomas, and Thigpen become depth guys.
I read that Wallace is not only our #1 target, but now I'm thinking that we may instead of targeting a TE in FA, they may find Hartline's asking price a bit much and according to Mortenson may look to even try to reel Jennings in to a deal not to much different and give Tannehill "two" veteran star WRs to throw to.
Volin adds that Fasano looks to be brought back, Egnew will be used as a slot type of TE, and that it is more likely that it is "Clay" whose roster spot is the one that will be in danger if he doesn't super improve!
Long looks to be the guy Ireland will meet his demands on a long term deal, the same with Sean Smith. Marshall seems safe and finally. ....
Ireland lent to my previous hunch that Chamce Warmack may indeed be the target at #12.
He stressed not given an eff what previous history repeating itself on his record (implication by media guy was picking OL) and Ireland stated that you may have playmaker/impact player being one thing I think it can very well be OL. Did mention Safery too, so I wouldn't be surprised if Miami has Vaccaro on the radar should Warmack be gone or a FS in the 2nd or 3rd round.
Anyone read into this and come out with at least something in this vain?
