that\'s rolle who was talked about on the front page.

I\'d go with kelly holcomb for a low budget qb for a year.

dyson, smoot, baxter at cb--with the priority being smoot

any of the ot\'s.

if we could get rudy johnson as a change of pace RB to push Duece I\'d be very happy. rudy is a really cool guy and a good back with a whole different approach than duece..great for a backup..and i\'m not sure he\'s gonna get much of a look this offseason.

Ooooohhhh, and then get Aaron Rodgers or Alex Smith? Stop it man, I can\'t handle that kind of excitement knowing it isn\'t ever gonna happen.

i don\'t know if i want smith or rogers-i was kinda hoping that we could trade for rivers or brees. I doubt that is happening either.

I think that some of the lower round QBs can develop into better starters than either smith or rogers.

I do think that we are going to attempt to trade brooks this offseason...just for who or what I don\'t know.

I\'d take Smith over Rodgers, but not first pick high. If we were to trade AB for something that high, I would trade back a few spots and get more picks for the second round, where I think there will definitely be some defensive steals.

that\'s kinda along the lines of what I was thinking...dallas and san diego have two first rounders and both need DE-we have howard who wants to leave..I think that\'s another choice as well.

i do think the D could get a lot better quick if a substantial FA or two were added. then toss in a coupla high draft picks. i don\'t have high hopes tho. i think they will look at the last 4 games n say we just need to tinker adding little if anything of free agents.

what about ss donovan darius on that list. he was the jack. franchise player, a durable and hard hitter. buzz is they probably wont franchise him again tho, so a bidding war. if not, jags need some sacks- howard for him straight across.
