Off Season moves !

I've been looking over a ton of sites and looking at FA what would you guys think of this.

1. Move up in the draft get DJ (1st and 3rd pick to move up)

2. Franchise Howard and trade him as well as our 2nd for another 1st and get Carlos Rodgers

3. Sign Peter Boulware - Who I'm pretty sure is a free agent

4. And try to sign Orlando Peace (If we sign him move Gandy to RT)

5. Sign or draft a Center and move Bentley back to Guard.

KFFL usually has free agent lists but I can\'t find one this year without having to pay. Anyone know of any good sites for that info?

I think it\'s called profootball talk.com. A guy I know named Jason runs it and it has a list I think.

Nice thoughts, though I don\'t necessarily agree. But for the sake of conversation:

1) I\'d agree with finding a way to move up for Derrick Johnson, but there\'s so much hype surrounding him now that I wonder if even he\'s worth it (goodness knows we\'re not the only fans talking about him, and a guy on NFL Network\'s \"College Football Saturday\" named him the best overall player in the draft). A 1st and 3rd might be a little much when there are other good LB\'s out there. We\'ve got so many holes to fill, we might be better off keeping those picks (assuming we\'ll use them properly, for once!).

2) I\'m not sure franchising Howard again is in our best interest. Will Smith has developed nicely and should be able to take over at the other DE spot opposite Grant. It\'s doubtful another team would spend franchise money on Howard, given his injuries, so we might have trouble dealing him. I think we should let Howard go, deal Aaron Brooks, and use the money saved to pick up someone like Jon Kitna, Trent Dilfer, or Kurt Warner. This should also free up a little extra cap room for free agency.

3) Sign Peter Boulware. I can\'t disagree with that, but I wouldn\'t overpay, as we\'re not sure if he\'s kicked the injury bug yet. If we can get him at the right price, however, he might be a nice pickup.

4) Orlando Pace is, without argument, one of the most outstanding LT\'s in modern NFL history. That being said, he\'s getting a little long in the tooth, is famously lazier with age, and would cost us a phenomenal amount of cash. Again, sign him for the right price, but don\'t overpay.

5) Yes, we all want Bentley back at OG. God, how stupid were we to let Fontenot go? Especially when he wasn\'t even demanding that much money!

As for good FA sites, I\'ve had trouble there, too. I want the info, but I\'ll be damned if I\'ll pay for it! profootballtalk.com isn\'t a bad one, though...
