    If he comes cheap I'd take him as a situational player, absolutely. Think Strahan with the 07 Giants, wasn't a great player but he was a great leader and played very well on 3rd down.

    Agreed. If anything, it's another player to add to the defensive line rotation. With us, that has been one of our biggest assets on defense - the ability to keep players fresh.

    Freeney...14 games....5 sacks...12 tackles
    Hughes 16 games...4 sacks...41 tackles
    Mathis 12 games....8 sacks...33 tackles

    Freeney was the third best de on his own team last season

    Yet everyone is falling in love with what Freeney USE TO BE NOT WHAT HE'S BECOME

    in freeney's defense, he was put in a defensive scheme that doesnt fit him as a player... they had him playing LB in the 3-4 defense that they changed to and he is a pure 4-3 DE. Hes not like wake and can do both.

    Where do you get the indication that he is done?
    Go look at his slope. Last year he only had 5. His production over the last 4 years in sacks has gone from 13.5, 10, 8.5, and 5....if that isn't declining...then what is? The guy is over the hill....and I could care less about first year in 3-4...he does one thing...rush the passer.

    Last few years Freeney has been a shadow of his former self, but will more than likely still command top DE money.....I say pass

    not happening. word is we are looking to get younger.

    Ansah or Okafor works for me in upper crust of draft aside from moore and werner.

    if Okafor at 42 its a good pick. 54 is the bomb.

    FA: Dmitiri Patterson (Vet min.w/ incentives)
    1. Zach Martin OT
    2. Bishop Sankey RB
    3. Brandon Thomas G/T
    4. Max Bullough ILB
    5. Crockett Gilmore TE
    6. Brandon Linder G/T
