Re-sign Long, Starks, and Smith. Franchise tag Bush, unless he re-signs for cheaper than expected and you let Fasano, Clemons, Hartline, and McDaniel go. Then you push for one of the FA WRs and use the draft to add a FS, DE, another TE, another "speed WR, and OL and LB depth. And of course replace Carpenter.
so far, great predictions.....not
just the same overreaction psycobabble.
We need Cb's and one big WR and big TE which there are plenty of good ones in this draft.
I would put numbers out for Jake that are much lower than what he is making now. If he leaves FA, then you need to draft another LT/RT. So you see, you cant have it both ways slick willy by saying get rid of Long and complain about Ireland drafting another LT. Brilliance at its best.
We also need another G. Yeah I know, another Linemen in the draft to piss you off but draft one late and we will have to get one or two big FA's because we have to spend 90% of the cap. A good OL would do this team alot of good. Their might be some trading of players this offseason.
Rishard Matthews is your #3 folks. book it. they just didnt play him out of spite since he is a rookie.
Draft CB, WR, TE, T, LB, G, RB, DE, S and not in that order neccessarily and BPA all the way no matter what the position. If we get a big name in FA then you may be able to ixnay one off that draft.
I would offer a bigger pay day for Brian Hartline and a 7-8 mil contract to Jake Long. Think about it, the dude is just having a bad year in this new offense. If he walks it still leaves a big hole.
I would offer Sean Smith a contract that is lowballed and let him walk should he like to. Letting alot of these guys go should get us compensated picks provided we do not have get any FA which is another reason why getting Jake to sign a contract like that would be beneficial. Alot of problems currently that he is having is because defenses are throwing the sink at our rookie. We simply have to get better at WR/TE which anyone with a brain should agree.
We need to start looking more at Lamar Miller.
draft Ty Eifert/TE - Notre Dame 1st Rnd… sign FA Greg Jennings/WR… use the two #2's & draft OLB… move Martin back to his LT position… use a 3rd on RT… sign FA LG… package Bush & a 3rd to Detroit for their 2nd & 4th/cond 5th… blast away
