When was the last time our team has signed a big time F/A ? That has actually came in and made a

huge impact. Maybe it was Kevin Green ?

I always thought Ken Lucas was a big-time pickup. He had a couple of good years for us...that's the last FA splash I can really remember.

Mike Wahle.

Moose made a big impact.

Ken Lucas was good for a while.

Hopefully our huge contract signngs to our RBs being a bust and also the great year Vincent Jackson had after signing with the Bucs will open JR's eyes and make him realize its not always a sure thing to "re sign our core players, avoid Free Agents like the plauge."

I think Shockey was pretty good. Lucas had some good years here. Wahle never really lived up to expectations.

We will likely not have the cap space for a big time FA wanting $8M a year.

In his first few years, Hurney seemed to go get a good FA every year. He never went out and signed a top tier FA, but guys like Lucas, Wahle, and Hartwig. I think Hartwig was actually the last one he signed that other teams were pursuing, and maybe because he busted Hurney backed off them. Or it could have come from JR. We got Tyler Brayton (Raiders starter) in 2009, and that was it. Coincidentally, that was also the last season where JR's sons were running things, so the idea that management told him to cut it out may be valid.

If it is, then it will probably have bearing on how the next GM behaves (i.e., don't look for a Vincent Jackson type of signing any time soon). Or maybe Hurney just got sick of going after them.
