question real quick....with our current roster how much room do we have left on the cap...i knowwe have to atleast hit the cap floor, (love the CBA rule, make us spend, YES!!!) im unsure how the current contacts are set up and the cap hit we get from our re-signings, does anyone know how much more we have to/can spend?
So with all the moves so far, im thrilled...i think signing our core guys back was awesome and we no longer have to be nervous about really any big names leaving the team for a while, glad. Its nice to see Jerry truely invest in Ron and Marty (again)....lets be real Marty has done a great job from day 1. Jerry tightened the budget on Foxy so Hurney had no other options as far as free agency goes but has been a draft guru from the beginning. Take away Shelton, Jarrett, Colbert and really he been flawless. And everyone knows Jarrett would have been off the board soon after and he was as gifted as any WR in the draft class that year, no blame there...i know i was excited when we got him.
But now, our main concerns still left are CB, DT, and DE....alot of people want another WR but i think the TEs we have could compensate for those recs....in SD Chud had Vincent Jackson, and some "ok" guys ...but paired with Gates, and LT guys like Floyd were able to look decent. We could easily line up in a spread 4 wide (allow Cam to do his thing) put Shockey outside (via Sean Peyton) and have Olsen play the TE with smitty in the slot (his request) and LaFell and Gettis also.....If anyone was on my wishlist i would say Braylon...he has ties with Chud from CLE, and i know Jerry has loosened up with character flaws a bit, but still highly doubt him allowing a DUI pending case come into the franchise.
CB- Im wishing and hoping from Cromartie just for his skill set, but im a realist and doubt we go that "big name" and hate when people get on here and fantisize about a dreamteam that we could get. However, there could also be ties there with Rivera from SD, im unsure whether he was still CHI DC when Cromartie was in SD though, so maybe no ties at all....anyone know those dates? Someone more likely would be Carr, or Carlos Rogers.....with these guys though, im almost certain Marshall could be the better man here and def has the higer ceiling of the 3, why dont we just resign him, and give a fresh start with Rivera...unless Ron Meeks is in Riveras ear on this one, since he moved from DC to DB coordinator.
And with DT, and DE...idk, Jenks is still out there and Im insure why no one has jumped on him...he was the best player on GB d-line last year, and would be perfect for our hybrib 4-3/3-4 as he could play DT in 4-3 and DE in 3-4. Kris could have a part in keeping Cullen away from us though. But I highly doubt we can get him. DE is weird, we have to sign someone though. Im assumming we wait till after camp and allow Rivera to really see these young guys like Hardy, and Norwood before they decide on what kind of talent level we should bring in, whether it be as a starter or just for depth....Im going to fantasize here though, and hope that somehow we can get Osi from the NYG for a midround pick, maybe even Connor...they need lots of help at the LB spot.
