    Resign Grimes. Period.
    Resign Big Paul AND Randy. IDC, I want them both.
    Resign Clemons to a 2yr/7.5mil or another cheap incentive driven contract.
    Let Patterson walk, time for young buck CB to step in (assuming they are ready)
    (I hate Carroll but he'll be far cheaper than Patterson unless Dmitri can get healthy...and stay healthy to deserve contract #s)
    Draft a DT, LB and FS to develop. We need depth here. Especially if we don't resign both bulls in Solai and Starks. LB depth is terrible and we could use more depth at FS
    Resign Marlon Moore to ST. The guy fills this role very well.

    Draft a OT and OG and sign one. A total of three new lineman. Keep Brenner, Garner, and Pouncey. Maybe jerry if he's cheap enough.
    Sign a veteran RB. I like MJD for cheap or McFadden for cheap. McFadden might want too much and not worth more than 3.5 guaranteed IMO. Ben Tate is also available but I question his ability as an every down back even with his success behind a good line. He will also want to get paid and we should NOT NOT NOT overpay for a Veteran Back when there are so many options available.
    Keep the WR core we have. IDC what u people say this is the best receiving core we have had (albeit injured) in years.
    If Keller is healthy enough to return, sign him at a cheap low guaranteed contract. He will be cheap if proven healthy.
    If not healthy, then address via draft or look at other options via FA i.e---Pitta, Garrett Graham, Pettigrew......and my dream signing...Jimmy F-n Graham....( I can dream)
    And by the grace of god show MArcus Thigpen the door and slam it on his face. This needs no further explanation.

    It's not going to happen. They're both on the other side of 30. The options are one or none, not both. The point was made pretty clear last year by releasing both Karlos Dansby & Kevin Burnett, both very good LBs, that our defense will not be comprised of a bunch of 30+ year old men.

    You realize Grimes plays CB & will be 31 next year right? You can give him a 4 year deal until 2017 but there better be very little signing bonus involved.

    I am not arguing "what is going to happen"...I am saying "what I would do." And I would keep both of them...

    Halo LegendaryGalactic Empire medalHydra logo
    Ideal off-season

    Free Agency -
    1. Resign - Grimes, Patterson, Carroll, Soliai, and Jerry
    2. Sign - Brandon Albert (LT), Austin Howard (RT), Wade Smith (OG), Ben Tate (RB)
    3. Draft
    Round 1 - Eric Ebron (TE)
    Round 2 - Martin, Yankey, Steen, Sua-Filo (All Gs)....which ever is available
    Round 3 - Jeremiah Attaochu (OLB)
    Round 4 - 7 (haven't looked close enough at the draft yet to get into these rounds, but would like to pick up DL, LB, S)

    Offense

    LT - Albert
    LG - Smith
    C - Pouncey
    RG - Martin
    RT - Howard
    WR - Wallace
    WR- Harline
    WR - Gibson
    TE - Ebron
    RB - Tate
    QB Tannehill
    TE2/HB - Clay

    Defense
    DE - Wake
    DT - Soliai
    DT - Odrick
    DE - Jordan
    LB - Misi
    LB - Ellerbe
    LB - Wheeler/Attaochu
    CB - Grimes
    CB - Patterson/Carroll
    N - (hopefully one of the rookies steps up)
    S - Clemons
    S - Jones (hoping and praying he returns to form)

    Again, this is just ideal and I'm delving into the land of fantasy, but I think this would vastly improve the line and add a red zone playmaker

    I would be very leary of keeping Patterson in light of him consistently re-injuring that groin. I certainly wouldn't resign him unless he agrees to tie salary to starts or lowers his asking price.

    I like a lot of that but I wouldn't drop the coin on Tate and I wouldn't make paying a right tackle in free agency a priority...I would also let Patterson walk and resign Carroll to compete with Taylor and Davis...

    Finally with this staff Ebron would be losing reps with clay and sims here already...early at Least...and you better get another dt for the rotation in the 2 deep at least with upside...

    I would cut wheeler period...I don't care the cap hit...he's killing me

    I'd trade our 1st round pick in 2015 to move up and draft an injured RB in the 3rd round this year. I'd then waste our 2nd round pick as we always do and then pass on playmaker in the first round to draft a DE that can back up Wake and play part time for the next 4 years. You say that's what we always do? Well, there're a lot of people here that want to keep Ireland cause "we don't want to start over" even tho we've been starting over every year since Ireland got here.

    Ozzy rules!!
