I would LOVE to get Boling and Wisniewski this offseason,but I'd be fine with getting one or the other. Armstead,Boling,Wisniewski,Evans,and Strief would be a fantastic o line! Or Armstead,Sherff/Collins,Wisniewski,Evans,and Strief would be nice. Realistically,it's probably going to be Armstead,Kelemente,Lelito,Evans,and Strief. Ballin on a budget!

New scout director Jeff Ireland has a track record of identifying solid O lineman. It will be interesting to see who we target in FA or draft.

Reggie Bush released by Detroit Lions - NFL.com

I'd like him back.

Green Bay Packers release A.J. Hawk after 9 seasons - NFL.com

I was really high on Hawk when he came out of college. Would he be an upgrade for us if he had anything left in the tank?

Green Bay players are most overrated group in the NFL. (defense)

I like their O-line and receivers.

Grubbs and Evans eat up a big chunk of cap space so rumor has it that either both or one restructure and the other gets cut. Many (myself included) feel Grubbs is one of the weak links in the offensive line so they would like to see him replaced

Center and Guard need upgrades this year. Brees can't step up to throw with the pocket collapsed. Way to much pressure up the middle.The Tackles are o.k. for now but next year might need to look for Striefs possible replacement.Imagine Brees behide a line as good as the Cowboys, they have the best of both worlds, great run game and all day to throw.

AJ Hawk would be a great LB coach.

He was a monster in college, but never really showed the same stuff in the big league.

why go the FA route and get a large contract signed and the cut a guard that player is replacing only to care a huge dead money for the same year?

Evans 5 million in dead money for a caps savings of 6 million
Grubbs 6 million in dead money for a caps savings of 3.6 million

for one position?
new large contract + huge dead money = bad economics

draft is the better way to go this year. next year when the dead money is not so high then i can see it

Evans 1.5 million in dead money for a caps savings of 8.7 million
Grubbs 3 million in dead money for a caps savings of 7.3 million

so over two years
Evans at 6.5 million in dead money?
Grubbs at 9 million in dead money?

i would fire Mickey and start to question Benson's state of mind also. Rita may have been right.
