Can we just sign some Veterans already

I am not really sure why we haven't signed guys like Quintin Mikell and Travelle Wharton. (or Brandon Moore when he was available) The motto this season seems to be "Just Win" and I think everyone would agree these guys would help us do so. I do like the idea of letting young guys develop, but you usually don't go that route when the main concern is winning games. We have cap space so offer the guys a decent 1 year deal so we keep the books clear for next season. I can understand older players not wanting to play for vet minimum. A better O lineman could be cut that we could pick up but i don't think that any safeties will be cut that are better than Mikell.

Gettles motto is evaluate and the decided. And that's what he is doing right now.

when guys get cut from other teams, we'll see some vets brought in.

Hold on, I'll text Gettleman this idea. It's so revolutionary I am sure he hasn't thought of it .

My only problem with that is why would a team let anyone worth a darn go? So is it really going to be that much of a upgrade grabbing a player another team let go?

 

Its kinda like adopting a dog or buy one from a friend, and your like "why would someone give away such nice looking dog" Then you take it home and it craps every, eats up the furniture and never listens. No one gives away a good or well behaved dog. Just like no team would give away a player who can actually help them. Just my opinion.....

I can understand that for the Oline but like I said, can you think of a decent safety that might be cut?

but it happens frequently.

 

guys a little long in the tooth and/or who have unpleasant cap numbers or who just simply are the victims of being in a crowded, but talented position group on their team, will see the axe when cuts come.

I'm sure he has thought of it. I am asking why he isn't doing it. If I had the ability to trade my Nissan for a BMW I wouldn't think about it.

I'm not disagreeing by no means, I hope it does happen b/c we need something....
