    Free Agency Plan with realistic Contract numbers

    Jake long 4 yrs 36 = 9 /yr
    Sean smith 4 yrs 30 = 7.5/yr
    Randy starks 4 yrs 32 = 8/yr
    Greg Jennings 4 yrs 30 = 7.5/yr
    Kenny Phillips 2 yrs 10 = 5/yr
    Jermichael Finley 2 yrs 8 = 4/yr
    Matt Moore 2 yrs 4 = 2/yr
    Tony McDaniel 1 yr 1 mil
    Quentin groves 1 yr 1 mil
    Rocky mcintosh 1 yr 1 mil
    Dmitri Patterson 1 yr 1 mil


    = 46 mil/2013
    - bonuses
    = 35 mil/2013
    Cap room: 47
    -35
    =12
    Roughly 10 mil to sign rookies
    2 mil margin of error

    Ive been discussing this plan with friends and this appears to be the most reasonable scenario we've come up with. We would go into the draft still needing a top wideout to go opposite Jennings and a top DB opposite Smith. we would resolve the OT issue but we would still have to fix both gaurd spots. Thoughts?

    I'd rather let Long walk. Sorry. his body is breaking down and he isn't the player he used to be.

    Let Martin man that side and get another RT either through FA or the draft. You'll save a good few million there.

    i honestly don't like the free agent tackles except obviously Vollmer but he would cost just as much. I would agree with you only if we can medically prove that Long can't go back to his original form. If he goes back to the way he was two years ago then that contract is actually a steal.

    Oh I agree, if he can get back to form, but it seems like its an every year thing with him now and this season he seemed to have lost a step...or two.

    I didnt even really see much difference when Martin was in there to be honest so unless he's going to take a team friendly deal like Soliai, I wouldn't keep him around.

    It's kind of like when the Pats let go of Damien Woody a while back. Granted Woody was a guard, but still.

    What would be your plan to do with the money of Jake Long? I purposely let Hartline walk because I want to draft Keenan Allwn. If we sign both Jennings and Hartline we won't draft a receiver.

    If we do leave the other wideout for the draft, we would still have to fix OT OG and DB. We could bring back Reggie. I would prefer Long over Reggie, especially because I think Miller and Thomas can handle it.

    Tony McDaniels is probably not going to take that much of a pay cut, but he might considering his role and production was limited this year.

    The Randy Starks contract is a bit high, I realistically expect him to get about $6mil/year and I don't think Matt Moore resigns with us.

    Also, we need to lock up Reshad Jones with an extension this year, too.

    Its going to take that much. DB's get paid. Realize that Richard Marshall got 3 years 16 million. thats almost 5.5.

    I think minimum 6.5 but even 6.5 would be great. Dude is a great player for us. These numbers I think are just realistic contracts at face value, but theres other factors ie comfort in miami, comfort with the organization that might be able to bring them back for cheaper, which would be great. But I think these values represent what their market is.

    Not to be a pain but I count $47 million with what you have

    Am I missing Hartline,Clemons, Fasano, and Garner?

    Thigpen was one of the best punt and kick returners and will have to be signed

    Do you resign Marlon Moore because he's been very good as a special teams player?

    plus we still need to sign or replace 20 other players that will be UFA/RFA
    THIS MIGHT ADD AT LEAST $15 MILLION+ TO YOUR scenario

    Patterson is signed for 2 more years at $5.6 million in 2013 and $6.4 million in 2014
    doubt he plays for $1 million a season

    McDaniel made $4 million this past season and I serious doubt he'd play for 1 million
    when he would get more somewhere else

    I seriously doubt you get Jennings for $7.5 mill

    Sorry but I don't see how the numbers would play out as you have them
