Re: Big time names in 2015 Free Agency

Chris Harris is not a free agent, the Broncos extended him about a month ago. Iupati is a good run blocker, not so great pass blocking. I like Wisniewski though. We would do well to get somebody like him.

I think my dream FA scenario for the o-line would be to cut/trade Grubbs and sign Wisniewski. Move Evans to the left side where his relatively poor run blocking won't hurt you as much and put Lelito at right guard. I'm sure some disagree but Lelito looks like a road-grading monster at guard to me. He played really well there last season when he filled in.

Even if Tillman is still willing to play, he's not a corner in Ryan's system. He's a cover 2 zone corner who gets ints by playing well in the zone. Ryan's system requires much more press and man to man skills.

^It didn't this year though. We were all zone and combo coverages for pretty much the first half of the season. Besides Tillman would just be a role player, not THE guy, you know?

I know WR isn't exactly our biggest need, but I would LOVE to get Randall Cobb.

No cap space and we have too many needs

Look where making a splash in free agency got us last year

Good Draft? Isn't that an oxymoron?

We need something like 2009 when we brought in Sharper and Greer. That's what's missing. Those kind of players. One who was unheralded in Greer and played for a effortless team. And Sharper who was the veteran past his prime but had leadership. Let's not think about what happened afterward, he was good for us. Truth be told, we sold our souls to win a lombardi and what Sharper did off the field was the price we paid for that.
