Wow, we look like we have no damn sense. We have wasted how much of our cap on guys who will have trouble staying healthy enough to be a backup, and not even a decent backup.

He warned you that we were going to the dollar store so stay in the car and roll the windows up.  And no you're not getting any candy.

Outside reaction so far is...not positive.

That's not always the best measuring stick though.

That is kind of how i feel.  I am waiting for them to make sense.  I get it if we waited until next week and looked at these guys, but during the tampering period (I know one was released, I think (but the longer you wait, the price goes down.  They must have a certain "type" they are looking for.  I firmly believe that the system must be a good fit, and I recall a player like Evan Mathis getting released here and becoming  a pro bowler in Philly--so let's see/

I think this draft is slammed full of quality OLinemen. The fact that we are picking up serviceable guys that can play a few positions, makes me think this move is to keep us flexible. If we trade draft capital for Watson or to move up for a QB, then we at least have some vets that can fill in. If we don’t move up, we can still target linemen in the draft knowing that the FAs we signed aren’t big name guys that eat up a lot of cap and they can compete with or backup the draftees. I don’t hate these moves at all.

I still think we draft a minimum of 2 OL next month.  One of which, being a starting LT (unless we sign one by then).

And Scott was not the worst--if we grab a T in the second and he needs a half season, we are probably OK.  Basically, we signed a Larsen who can compete at LG and a T that can play behind both ends of the LOS--the 19th and 70th picks in their respective drafts.

I don't hate the moves, just question the timing and the amount of money (very much related).
