Observations:

Jimmy won't sign till he's ready to come to camp, so no OTA's - hope we don't see some sloppy play as he returns and a possible injury with lack of conditioning...

Well, how do you like us now?!?

Running Backs Thomas, Robinson are only backs under contract after this coming season...

Still real thin on that offensive line...

Great depth at cornerback; little thin at Safety though White could be shifted there...

Bailey signing may mean we withdraw matching on Rafael Bush...

Sure would like to bring Meachem back in a supporting role like this past season...

Other than OLine, we've about got things reloaded...

Re: Free agents 2014

Surprised no one has asked the Saints if they'd be interested in RB Chris Johnson...

Re: Free agents 2014

I visited this thread just to mention Chris Johnson. The market on running backs has just about dried up. Wonder if we could sneak in and get him on the cheap. Restructuring a few contracts or even cutting somebody like Bunkley would give you just enough to get him something in the 3.5 million/year range which might be enough.

Re: Free agents 2014

Cutting Bunkley would leave us short with NT and only saves $1.3ml.
It was cost at least half of that to bring in another NT

June 1 cut puts you free and clear, we would save $4.5 million. And we presumably wouldn't need another NT because Hicks can play inside to supplant Jenkins (as he did when Bunkley was hurt all those games last year).

Just a thought, I actually like Bunkley a lot and wouldn't particularly love to see him gone. But that kind of speed on offense is tempting. I'm not talking about Darren Sproles shifty quickness, but actual gamebreaking straight line speed. We don't have much of that on offense these days, except for maybe Stills. In our offense Chris Johnson would be a nightmare for defenses.

Re: Free agents 2014

I hope we find a way to keep and/or restructure Bunkley's contract. The two man rotation with him and Jenkins worked out well last season.

"worked out well" is an understatement...

Re: Free agents 2014

And expect the cap space to adjust again, post draft, and when terms will be finalized on the Jimmy Graham contract...
