This really is a discussion if a CBA is agreed on and if Jerry Richardson will be as frugal as he says he will.

Our needs which are many: OL, QB, DT, DE, Cb, S, pass catching Te, and Wr.

This is if we resigned all of our UFA that we deem worthy of an extension including: Ryan Kalil, Jon Beason, Charles Johnson, Dante Rosario etc.

2011 Free Agents:

OL: Jared Gaither, Matt Light, Jermon Bushrod, Willie Colon, Carl Nicks, Logan Mankins, Tyson Clabo, Daryn Colledge.

QB: Peyton Manning, Matt Hasselbeck, Troy Smith, Seneca Wallace, Shaun Hill, Tarvaris Jackson, Michael Vick, Billy Volek.

DT: Haloti Ngata, Brandon Mebane, Aubrayo Franklin, Cullen Jenkins, Pat Williams, Barry Cofield, Gabe Watson.

DE: Ray Edwards, Mathias Kiwanuka, Tamba Hali, Shaun Ellis, Victor Adeyanju, Stylez White, Dave Ball.

CB: Champ Bailey, Johnathan Joseph, Carlos Rogers, Antonio Cromartie, Drayton Florence, Ronde Barber, Tye Hill.

S: Antoine Bethea, Quintin Mikell, Dawan Landry, Atari Bigby, Eric Weddle.

Wr: Sidney Rice, Vincent Jackson, Steve Smith, NYG, Santonio Holmes, Donald Driver, Mike Sims-Walker, Steve Breaston,, Malcolm Floyd, Jacoby Jones, James Jones, Brian Finneran, Lance Moore.

Te: Kevin Boss, Owen Daniels, Marcedes Lewis, Zach Miller.

Obviously I have left out some upcoming free agents so if u can think of any your prefer feel free to post it.

a lot of those guys are going to get resigned but could you imagine if we picked up haloti ngata, peyton, vernon davis, and carl nicks? we'd instantly be a nfl powerhouse

you'll need to consider those players who would have gone FA last year, but couldn't because of FA rules changing due to the salary cap disappearing. if the CBA gets done, this FA class could be huge. teams with the most cap room wins.

realistically after resignings i think we could get barry cofield, marcedes lewis, aubrayo franklin(who i thought just got a 5 year extension), Vick, and Mankins which would still be huge

The sad part is after this season will free agents come to carolina and not ask for over the top signing figures?

Logan Mankins should be the first guy we look at. Then if by some miracle Haloti Ngata falls through, do what it takes to bring him in.

vick will get an extension. peyton will either have a new coach and sign his extension or he'll get tagged. neither one of those guys will hit the market. orton is most likely a lock to stay in denver as well...at least for a year or two, until the new coach decides what he wants to do at QB. none of the rest of those guys are very appealing at all except as a backup/clipboard carrier and really hass is the only one of those i would want around. the rest suck.

OG and DT choices look good.

i'd take one or two of those WRs over smith long term.
