Since we won't pay Pep will we be a team that will be active during the FA period?

Not at all.... Just because we didn't pay Peppers, were still not gonna go out and make huge splashes.... People should stop thinking that because we let him go were gonna go sign top WR, top DL-Men ect....Not going to happen....

I think we will. For the past two years, Fox and Hurney have been on the hot seat and have at least attempted to bring in some impact players (moreso 2008 than last year).

I wouldn't be surprised if we went after a big name wide-receiver through free agency.

I don't see a big contract without a labor deal.

Richardson is trying to pinch pennies with this 2011 year looming.

I kind of felt the same, but you have to remember the lockout getting closer and closer. If we go after a big name, it's unlikely they would just want a throw away contract...

Just really hard to say with a lot of things changing.

Exactly he is practicing fiscal restraint and responsibility....

The top players will get into huge FA bidding wars and their value will be inflated... As we will find out today, Richardson is not going to over play... We will bring in some low key role players as we usually do.

Lame duck coach and GM with the threat of a lockout in 2011 makes me think no. The same reason why we aren't going to rush to lock up more but we will 1st round tender him. It would be difficult to pass on Kampman but ultimately I think the team we have now will look a lot like the team that takes the field in 2010.

Well I hope all this fiscal restraint doesn't mean I have too pay too see a suckass team beacuse Richardson wants too be spot man on this labor issue. While JJ and Snyder build winning teams. I think we need too atleast use some of the money on replacements for Pep and WR help for smith and Moore. No matter what people think about Pep their is nobody on this team as it stands that can replace that kind of production and impact.

Personally, I think it depends on if they believe Matt Moore can get the job done. I don't see them making big deals in the offseason if they lack confidence in Moore to get us to the playoffs.
