I think both of our moves in FA so far have been great, but, we still need help on the O line and at LB. I think we should go after experience for the OLine and draft a young LB.
I think that if there is someone like Matt Jones available in the second round or later, we will probably go after him.....not saying I agree, just that we probably will.

Especially when you consider the 4th and 5th years are never going to happen, not without a cut or restructure.

His cap hit would\'ve only been 2.2 million this year. And with the (likely) cuts of Cie Grant, Sedric Hodge, T-Buck, Thomas, Riley, possibly Gleason, and Pathon, yeah, we could\'ve afforded that.

Damn.
