FREE AGENCY
Trade deangelo Williams for a 5th
Restructure Jon Beasons contract
Restructure Charles Godfrey's contract
Restructure Chris Gambles Contract

Trade back with the bears so they can get Jake Matthews.

DRAFT:
1st Round Eric Reid FS 6-2 212 lbs- best safety in the draft and could give us the answer we need to our safety woes.
2nd Round Kawann Short DT 6-3 315 lbs- A guy who can hold the line and get tackles behind the line of scrimmage.
2nd Round (Bears Pick) Desmond Trufant CB 6-0 186 lbs- A solid CB to add to our young secondary to give us better depth and rotation.
4th Round Gabe Jackson OG 6-4 320 lbs- Since we will probably keep Jordan Gross then we can secure the right guard spot and get a LT next year.
5th Round Joseph Fauria TE UCLA 6-7 255 lbs- Need a solid number 2 TE for Cam to keep the pressure off.
5th Round Johnny Adams CB Michigan State 5-11 178 lbs- Takes the place of Captain as a cheaper option.
6th Round Marques Wilson WR Washington State 6-3 188 lbs- playmaking receiver who is only going late because he quit his team because his coach was being abusive.

COACHING CHANGE:
HC: Bruce Arians
OC: Jason Garret
DC: Brian Van Gorder

POTENTIAL OFFENSIVE LINEUP
QB: Cam Newton
FB: Mike Tolbert
RB: Jonathan Stewart
WR:Steve Smith
WR: Marques Wilson
TE: Greg Olsen
LT: Jordan Gross
LG: Amini Silatolu
C: Ryan Kalil
RG: Gabe Jackson
RT: Byron Bell

POTENTIAL DEFENSIVE LINEUP
DE: Charles Johnson
DT: Dwon Edwards
DT: Kawann short
DE: Greg Hardy
CB: Chris Gamble
OLB: James Anderson
MLB: Luke Kuechly
OLB: Jon Beason
CB: Josh Norman
FS: Eric Reid
SS: Charles Godfrey

This to me may be the best way to fill as many holes as possible.
Cam has elevated his play and if he can get everyone to play up to potential we could be a perennial playoff team.

I like the moves and draft.
I just don't like the coaching staffs.

As far as the coaches go... NO on Van Gorder.

Why start the JAG instead of TD? Also we have a 6th round rookie starting over Breezy. Quits or no quits if Wilson is day 1 starter calibre he would be picked before round 6.

There obviously would be a rotation at LB but I'm still afraid to put to much on TDs plate because of the knees

Just a thought im sure there will be plenty of other defensive guys available. But he is definitely available

I don't like Bruce Arians. I don't get the hype that Arians is getting on this forum.

I've been meaning to update my mock with Short in the 2nd, Fauria in the 5th, and Wilson in the 6th! Get outta my brain! O_O

Switch Reed and Short for Jenkins and Amerson and you've got yourself a deal

Decent as a whole but not my cup of tea.

We need to build from the lines out imo because in part, that can make the secondary play easier. Also, the difference between Reid and other safeties in this draft isn't much especially when compared to the drop in quality for the first round o & d-lineman.

Also, I think it'd be a big problem not to address WR in the first two rounds in the draft especially if we trade back and have 3 picks before round 3.

There's a very good crop in Patterson, Patton, Williams, Hopkins that I would hate to pass up on only to get a 5th or 6th rounder.

As I said, we need to build from the lines out, but we really really do need another playmaker on this offense. We have consistent weapons in Olsen, LaFell, D'lo, and Stew but I want to get a guy who can be a big threat type weapon. Patterson would be freaking awesome, Patton would do, and I'm a fan of Hopkins.

I'm certain no one is going to trade a 5th for a 30 year old RB with a massive contract.
