    Jennings...$9 million

    $42.5 million with $7 million for draft picks
    $49.5 million total

    You still need to sign or replace free agents
    Murtha,Garner,Amaya,Barker,Brown,Culver,
    Fasano,Feinga,Mastrud,McCann,McDaniel,Spitler,Stanford,
    Marlon Moore,Matt Moore,Devlin

    That's 16 players who will need to get payed or their replacements
    Even if you pay an average of $500k to all those players add another
    $8 million to the previous total of $49.5 million bringing you to $57.5 million

    I also believe that the numbers you have for both Levitre and Jennings are very low
    you might want to add another $5 million for both over your estimate

    Which would bring you up to around $62.5 million or way over what we will have available
    You make good points. Its definitely a tight rope act. I think we will eventually have to leave some guys hanging (Long is the big one, you let him walk and your relying heavily on Yeatman/Garner). If Clemmons gets resigned it wil probably be for more and we might not get a Safety in this draft, which would be a shame. If Sean Smith wants more than 5 mil he can walk. Find two CB's in this draft, going back to Safety again being left out. I think Ireland wants Patterson, Mcmann, and Standford back with the last two at the cheap. Seriously thinking Smith ends up walking.

    From what I understand out of BLo.

    1. Levitre wants between 7 and 8M a year
    2. Levitre really wants to resign in BLo and also talked hometown discount.

    Don't like the approach.

    Last season, once all of the League realized that HARTLINE was as close as we had for a deep threat, it was downhill for us offensively. We saw all of them crowding the l/o/s, and a lot of "8-In-The-Box". It's a testimonial to the team that we did as well as we did. And i/m/o, it won't take much for us to get A LOT better.

    First and foremost, MIAMI needs an established "burner" WR. That means WALLACE, or it'll be "deja vu all over again". JENNINGS or BOWE would be "icing on the cake", but WALLACE is the cake itself. Nothing against JENNINGS or BOWE: but MIAMI MUST be able to stretch the field. And rookies usually take time to develop into pro WRs anyway! So, get an established deep threat WR, and take a "flyer" on a rookie deep threat WR w/a late Draft Pick. I'm sick of losing seasons.

    Second, WAKE needs help. He gets double/triple teamed almost every play, w/a little "holding" thrown in for good measure. That would be almost impossible w/another pass-rushing threat. AVRIL's the only one we can be sure of, i/m/o, but he may be too much OLB and not enough DE. I can't say for sure. And he'll cost a ton of money. I'd go DE/OLB pass-rusher w/my first 2 Draft Picks...and a third ("flyer") in the 4th or 5th Round.

    Third, and as we just saw, NO QB does well under extreme pressure. That's true for both MANNINGS, for A RODGERS, for "MATTY ICE", and also for TOMMY Boy. And it's true for TANNEHILL too. So we need to go after a solid G...maybe 2...in the Draft and F/A. I prefer F/A. LEVITRE's the logical F/A choice, and the one most discussed. But he's not the only one in F/A, i/m/o: there are a couple more possibilities. But since he's probably "top dog", make him our 3rd F/A target. Then kick JERRY out to RT, where he belongs, put INCOGNITO at RG where HE belongs, and let GARNER continue to do what he does best: back up C, LG, RG, and RT. He has shown that he can play all 4 of those positions pretty well: the only OL position that he DIDN'T DO WELL AT was LT. Hopefully, we can find a pretty solid Rookie LT, either in the Draft or the late cuts. If so, MIAMI's OL could quickly turn into a definite strength.

    Fourth, look for CBs. My preference is the Draft, because even mediocre established CBs get big bucks in F/A, and as we've seen, they are rarely worth what they get. MIAMI should be looking for at least 2 new CBs, in addition to re-signing SMITH. And either cut WILSON or develop him as a S (my preference). He just isn't good enough to be a CB. I'd spend at least 2 of our Draft Picks on CBs.

    Fifth, save about $5 Million extra "cap" $$$ specifically for the "final cut". I/m/o, that's where you usually find that "Aging veteran w/some gas left in his tank, who still wants to play football". A veteran CB or OLman, for example, would be VERY welcome.

    That's all for now. If I think of anything better or anything else, "I'll be back".

    7/ Eric Martin, DE, Nebraska, 6-2 , 250
    7/ Blaize Foltz, OG, TCU, 6-3 , 329
    My issue with bringing back Long at $10M and Levitre at $6-$7M is that Pouncy will also soon be due a big raise. We can have a lot of money tied into an OL and hamper our ability to sign other players.

    I'm not paying Long $10 mill. I'm putting that towards Levitre, D. Keller, and the rest of our small FA's

    Your not, Ross will... That's the great part, we can play GM and never spend a dollar.
