Free agents still on the board

Leron Mcclain, Keith Bulluck, Brian Westbrook,

Westbrook could be a big help at RB and let reggie see more playing time at slot

Bulluck would be a great 1-2 year value at OLB spot where we have low quality depth

Mcclain was a very underrated back on the ravens, i know heath is holding our FB spot but mcclain just seems like a good pick up with only 4 years experience with alot more years to go

Bulluck is the only of those guys that I would even consider. I think Westbrook is done after all the beatings he has taken and the concussions.

Aside from Vilma and Shanle, I'm not sure if we fully know what we have at LB. This is definitely a position to watch during TC this summer, but I'd like to see a solid veteran in the mix.

Remember that we did bring some talented guys in to fill the OLB position.

Would love to see Bulluck on the team. He has a great motor & led the Titans in tackles for several years. The only worry would be the inj he suffered last year.

Re: Free agents still on the board

I'm pretty sure Bulluck is an unrestricted free agent. Since we signed Shaper and have no other players to "lose" to other teams, we can't sign any unrestricted free agents given the current rules. We can only sign a player that is cut by his current team.

We signed Alex Brown because he was cut. We lost Fujita to Cleveland which allowed us to sign Jimmy Wilkerson. We are out of moves to make.

It doesn't look like we can get him, but if we could I'd be all for it. He is a smart football player who hits hard. He'd be excellent for the next couple of years.

thanks for the reminder stockman it sliped my mind that someone would have to be picked up by another team, am i saying it right. well i were going to say that bulluck would ease my worry like others who say they would welcome him also.
