C Stefen Wisniewski - Hudson of KC may have a better rating, but this guy has no one around him and he's played guard...



G Clint Boling - he's had a small sampling, but he performed well against some good AFC North D-Linemen



NT Terrence Cody - still believe Jenkins will be fine once he heals, but this would be an excellent young guy to have that position young and always fresh to disrupt the middle...



Also, wouldn't mind vetting out RB Darren McFadden...

What is people's infatuation with Terrence Cody? Is it the name recognition or the Alabama ties? It sure as hell isn't based on merit. The dude played like 6-7 snaps ALL SEASON last year. He had one decent year in 2011 and has done next to nothing since. This is back when he was actually seeing action and at his "playing weight"...

I would have rather signed Alex Mack if we could have tempted him though
Well, we can rectify that with either:

Stefen Wisniewski, C, 26 years
Rodney Hudson, C, 26 years

You know, with regards to Vaccaro, really thought of him as more of a free safety in the NFL, patrolling the mid-field; that's yet another reason I didn't like committing money to Byrd...

Well, it's more affordability...he did have success at one time, if I had my choice, I'd go get Pot Roast...

Terrance Knighton, NT, 29 years

I mean, you can't geaux wrong with Pot Roast...

Re: PFF 2015 free agents

Read somewhere that a solid defense is built in a straight line.

NT - LB - S

What's missing here?

Re: PFF 2015 free agents

Terrance Knighton, NT, i think we missed the band wagon on this guy. should have gone after him when he and jack ran off to denver.

now he will be looking for the huge pay day and bring to town a hige weight issue problem? nope missed the boot on him IMO

I will take these two over Terrance for cap reasons and improved play over the past few years.

NT
Dan Williams, NT, Cardinals. Age: 28
Kenrick Ellis, NT, Jets. Age: 27.


ILB

Mason Foster, ILB, Buccaneers. Age: 26
Light comes on in 2015 gamble signing

Bruce Carter, OLB, Cowboys. Age: 27.
for the love of god put him back at ILB in 34 already

which from the cowboys scrape heap do you want? there are a few.

Re: PFF 2015 free agents

Like the Cardinals' Dan Williams as well, but he doesn't control the point on passing plays as well as on run plays...

J-E-T-S' Ellis is great, but isn't he a restricted free agent?!?

Bruce has his moments but takes off too many plays for me.

Since you speak of the Cows, here is one for you Hagin ... Sean Lee.

Edit: Sean is not a UFA however Rolando McClain is. He has great size, speed and arrives with bad intentions.

Thoughts on McClain?

I was beating the drum about this guy when he was available after leaving JAX, but many referred to his weight issues and lack of effort as a reason to disregard him.

Man, I wish the Saints had signed him then, much like I had hoped they would sign Canty before he went to Baltimore.

Re: PFF 2015 free agents

I think the priorities in Free Agency have to be two new interior offensive linemen that are still young, entering their primes...

Should cap space be created that wouldn't further worsen the eventual cap doomesday we're facing, then a nose tackle to rotate with Jenkins or a space gobbling/ multi-blocker occupying defense end (i.e. Wilks, Geathers) ro allow Hicks to slide to the nose tackle rotation would be the next priority...

Know the inclination for many is another cornerback, but look, as pathetic as some of those 3rd and long plays that broke our backs was, c'mon, there was waaaay too much time for opposing quarterbacks on those plays...

Not sure the cap is quite that bad
Most of the big earners are at a point of being cutable next year and Brees contract will be off the books a couple of years later. Its going to hurt and will probably mean a year or two of struggle but i dont thinks its the end. Well not unless Loomis,Payton call a end to there stay aswell then its all up in the air for a rebuild.

Agree on this,at times ladt year we could have had Revis,Sherman and Chancellor back there and still be cut apart. Need pressure

"Two receivers to the left, Garcon to the right. Manning in the shotgun, puts Collie in motion. Looks in his direction...it's picked off! It's picked off! It's Tracy Porter again! He's runnin' free! He's gonna go all the way!
