I know we have "a lot of holes" in our roster. But lets pretend that Gettleman is as good as we hope he is and he successfully navigates our cap for the season. Is there one to three signings that would allow us to BPA the draft and not worry about position?

Personally I think our best bet is to resign Dwan at a discount, ignore the CB position in FA, sign the best OT possible and look for a better than average safety to work along side Godfrey. An improved OL will make our receivers better, and a stout interior will help the pass rush which makes the CB's better.

You are not giving me any hope here, naming practically the entire offense and defense as "holed"

Well honestly I am skeptical of our team and I feel we are talent deficient, but I put it in quotations because we played so well at the end and that should count for something. (not much, but something)

Sign Dwan to a good deal, Pat Sims for vet min. Sign starting Calibre RG and a mid level vet CB

Get Dwan back and Roy miller. See if Sensebaugh will take a vet minimum contract. We'll be good to go.

OK, the question isn't asking me to predict the entire offseason, just what is leading up to the draft, so I'll limit myself to that. First of all, they need some cap room, so the first move is to cut Gamble. The biggest worry imo is the offensive line. The FO can't be happy that they've invested so much into RB's only for them to get less than 4 yards a carry. They also need to protect their franchise player - Cam Newton. I strongly believe that the best move considering all this is to sign someone like Schwartz who can play both RT and RG. That flexibility is huge. If the BPA happens to be an OT or OG, he can be drafted, Schwartz (or whoever is in his place) can start at whatever spot's left, and the line's looking pretty. If the BPA isn't an offensive lineman, the franchise can still go forward knowing that the biggest problem has at least been improved upon.

PS. I don't think that every positional need can be fixed in one offseason. Gettleman has already said that he'll be careful with signing FA's. They don't exactly have the cap for a lot of FA moves either, even if Beason gets cut on June 1st (I'm assuming that DWill will be back based on the FO's comments). The team will improve, but it's not gonna be complete overnight. Patience is a virtue.

Need to go BPA regardless.

I disagree that we have a "lot" of holes.

We should sign Canty, perhaps try and sign Chung or Sensabaugh on the cheap, and peruse the bargain basement bin---for other positions of need---for decent journeymen or players who still my have some upside, but have not reached their potential for whatever reasons. Making those moves would probably open us up to at least thinking about pulling the trigger on a WR in the first.

We have several holes on D. Just OL on offense.
