Aren't alot of these guys just going to be resigned by their own teams after their value is set through free agency?

Not if DS get's his checkbook out in time! So far I'll take Sproles, Walter, Bullock. Kid in a candy shop time!!!

Ok, not really, but I would seriously look Sproles as a KR, change of pace back.

Why can't Alridge be the "change of pace back"? Shanahan was the one who recommended Vinny when last summer, which led us to sign him 2 (or 3?) times last season.. Also if I recall correctly, I remember someone on this board said that Shanahan was going to make Alridge the starter, if he wasn't fired..

I certainly didn't say Alridge couldn't be the change of pace back, but Sproles is definitely a proven commodity, and would give an explosive player if the decided to bring him in. What would be a reason not to atleast discuss a contract with Sproles agent?

You are correct. The speculation is that some folks, unfortunately like Jahri Evans, did not get tagged because they are in good-faith negotiations for long-term deals with their teams.

JLC says that sides are "far apart" so maybe we might get a crack at him?

Adam_Schefter

Bills today informed DE Ryan Denney, WR Terrell Owens and WR Josh Reed that the team will not offer them contracts, making them free agents.

Doubt any interest us though.

Well, T.O. interested Shanahan last year while he was in Denver. He tried to pick him up but Buffalo got him. I'm indiferent but I could see us picking up T.O. for a one year deal to see how he works out in Shanahan's offense and picking up Antonio Bryant. Then either trading or cutting Moss and ARE. Bring the young guns more into the scheme of things while still having some top WR talent ready in case they don't work out.

I like Marshall like everyone else but he'll require a draft pick or something and I'm not interested unless they come up with a clever trade that does not involve draft picks.

It'd be sweet. If we could get Jahri Evans for a reasonable price, it might really help the OL.

I thought Jahri Evans was a RFA and he just has not been tendered (as opposed to be given the franchise tag). I believe teams have until March 4th to offer tenders.

That being said, I do hope that he's not tendered, but that'd be foolish for N.O. to do.

There's a reason why guys get cut every year, not because everyone in front of them is amazing, because some guys suck (relatively). If great RBs were so easy to come by we wouldn't have bounced around Marcus Mason so much and we'd already have Betts riding the pine full time.
RB is probably the second most important position on the entire football field. Problem is that the peak for a running back is universally quite short, and when it happens varies widely from player to player. So even if you have a great prospect, you never really know what you have at the position in any given season.

Yeah, I don't think he'll come free. But the discussion above was "what-if?"

Plus, if he does come free, he'll have teams all over him like flies on a blueberry pie.
