If we can clear 10 million in cap space this season I think we can bring in Mike Wallace.... (Steve Smith will probably retire after this year lets be honest)


Although I love the Idea of Wallace being on this team. I can't justify paying one guy 10 million when you can get 2-3 other players at a position of need and make your team better that way.

I was looking at it as getting a proven play maker with deadly speed, and using the draft to fill other holes.

Fair enough. Still, going after Wallace will be costly. I'm talking about a bidding war. Besides, he's above average. The price tag he put on himself is not justified, at least not to me. Just don't want all these moves Gettleman is making to be flushed away by acquiring just one player.

With those savings you could look at the Free safety position, with Ron cut, the NT position, Dwan needs to be resigned.

True... but even contenders will have some holes...

I think it would put our offense over the top.

Glenn Dorsey is a player who could prosper in our defense--however, I do not think we are in a position to speculate in free agency this year. I wish I were more familiar with him--anyone have any insights?

With limited resources in free agency, it seems to get players who were not good fits in the system they were in would be the way to shop...however, if he is just a soft, lazy, turd, then the system does not matter.

I think the draft is shaping up for Sheldon Richardson and or Star L. to be there when we pick. I think No WR or CB will be there at a good value. Since I also expect that no OL will be there at #14, it is shaping up to look like DT is the pick--something you and Gettlemen have been suggesting all along.

What do you do if we bring back Dwan? NT or underT? The under tackles are the BPAs, but I have a feeling that we will try to move back and get Williams at NT. Any thoughts?

If we draft Sheldon, then I have no problem with Dwan walking. But Dwan proved his worth at least in the passing downs.

It also depends on what our NT position is looking like. With Ron gone, we are in a huge need of an NT. Fua is just...below average. Kearse is meh. Ron sadly was our best NT and he was average. What NT's are there in the draft that would come in and make an impact? Remember Gettleman and Rivera said they aren't drafting projects early. So with that thought. I don't believe we'll draft a project. The problem is that I believe a lot of these DT's that went to the combine helped themselves to the point that we may not get to choose a top ten prospect.

Moving back and getting more picks would be the ideal situation at the moment. But who knows what happens between march and April. We could sign a vet NT/UT. Then focus on other areas in the draft. Here's hoping it all works out.

I think we would keep Richardson (assuming we draft him) and Dwan. We need 2, and a rotation is not a bad idea for a rookie and a 32-year old pass rusher.
A stud NT would be nice, and I think we need a veteran. Between Fua and Kearse, I think we could have a good NT rotation this year--they take time to develop. Never been a Fua fan, but I have heard Rivera and Kalil sing his praises. Maybe.....
