What Is The Best Off Season Move By Mickey Loomis?

Mickey has been busier in free agency than usual even though we entered the off season tight against the cap. He released a slew of veterans and either signed or resigned several key free agents. Now we can go into the draft without any major holes to fill.

Last year Keenan Lewis was the best move that happened during free agency in my opinion. I believe that he was a major part in Ryan being able to turn around this defense.

In your opinion what was the best off season move by Mickey Loomis this year?

I agree on Byrd. Sproles trade is second for me personally. As soon as the season was over I thought it was time to replace him. He looked great in a couple of games, but it was the scheme getting him wide open. Most of the year I felt like he was lacking his burst & quick twitch. In any case, I'm surprised we did it & even more surprised we got something in return.

Alrighty then. Byrd is obviously the best answer. Who is the second best transaction then?

Re: What Is The Best Off Season Move By Mickey Loomis?

Getting rid of all the dead weight was his best move and probably his hardest decision. He showed that he and the FO will stay ahead of the curve when changes need to be made instead of keeping players that are passed their prime or won't fit into the changes.
Byrd was his best player acquisition and keeping Pierre was a good move.

I think the Bunkley pay cut was pretty impressive.

As harsh as it might sound I think its a good thing Moore was cut.
