Extremely deep WR class. But theres a # of factors that could mean we dont pick anyone of note up

  • Likely getting a new Owner and a new GM situation, no idea how this will influence their choices in hosing free agents
  • Norwell/Star impending deals means less cap room 
  • Matt Kalils ridiculous contract means less cap room
  • Dont think we have much cap space, its very possible we dont sign any notable free agents this year.

Lack of OTs might mean we could possibly pick up McGlinchey or Orlando Brown if either falls to us late in the 1st.

Sign me up for Marqise Lee all day. I doubt Lawerence or Clayborn leaves their respective teams, but I'd be interested in both.

A few predictions/wants from me

 

 

OT:

 I dont see them doing anything at OT this offseason.  Williams is set and has been solid at RT.  Little Kalil isnt going anywhere this year, next year possibly he can be cut and look at OT.  Also keep in mind we drafted Moton in the 2nd this year and he has loads of potential plus the staff likes him.  We havnt seen what he can do yet.  OT seems like a need but are not in position to work on that now.

 

 

Older vets cuts:

Charles Johnson has fallen off this year.  And while I like what hes done here,  cutting him opens cap space.  

Russell Shepard has been a major disappointment, cutting him opens 2.5 million 

Mike Adams and Coleman, our safeties have been garbage this year and you have to think we get one early.  Cutting Adams and Coleman open 2.1 and 2.7

Ryan Kalil, he has looked good the last 2 weeks.  But with injury concerns with the age, cutting him opens 7.5 which could be a major factor in being able to resign Norwell.

Jonathon Stewart, cutting him would open 3.75, but with his age ot would be smart to extend him about 2 years and spread that $$ through his next 2 years extension

 

A few FA id like to see us take a hard look at

Donte Moncrief, has all the tools but has been cuffed by terrible QB play.  We wanted him in the draft. Now he would be a instant upgrade in the starting WRs now.

 

Aaron Lynch big athletic who is the perfect fit at 4-3 DE

 

Prince Amukamara- big athletic vet CB.  Our CBs are no where close to being there yet.  He comes in and starts right away.

 

Resign Norwell and Star, extend Olsen

 Yeah I agree with this. It's a bit of a shame but our hands are tied on Kalil and as you say they drafted Moton. I actually think the draft's OT's are good value this year and they may be great value with a number of QBs going high in the draft. But basically, any OT drafted will be likely unused which isn't a great use of draft capital with other needs.

 I like the idea of a veteran WR on a short-term prove-it deal. We have a young group of WR's and the draft class doesn't look brilliant. I hope they draft safety.

I don't know about DE. If we lose Peppers and CJ (which means we won the SB-yay) we will have a young pass rush with the exception of Addison. But if that happens we may have other holes too.

Please tell me you didn't just suggest that we extend Stew. The guy is done. His legs are shot. The burst is gone. Releasing him helps us in two ways. One, it saves significant cap space. Two, it keeps Rivera and Shula from playing him. I honestly think CAP would be performing at least as well if not better in his role for significantly less money.
