free agency 2011

2011 NFL Free Agents

I don't know if there are any better sites, but this is what I use for research. What free agents do you think we should pursue? Normally I'd assume that most of these guys would be locked up by seasons end, but with teams being reluctant to extend players due to no cba in place, I think that alot of guys will hit the market this year.

Don't just list off big name guys trying to build a pro-bowl roster. Remember, we have a salary cap to work with, and the price tag for the guys on the top of the free agent list is getting exponentially larger every year.

I think we will sign many free agents this year. We only have 2 picks in the first 4 rounds, our entire D-line blows, our interior O-line blows, our receiving core blows, and we have thin depth at linebacker. I don't think we will get big name guys...that hasn't worked out for shannahan when he has done that before, but I do think that we will get many non-starting material guys to patch some holes.

I'd say that we get a backup RB like what we were trying to do with johnson and parker (mike bell? kevin faulk?). I don't see portis or williams here next year, and I don't trust Torain to carry the load.

I don't see Holliday or Daniels back next year., and good for us the DL FA market is stacked. If we were to get a big name FA I'd want it to be Shaun Ellis. I also think it is important to get a backup NT. I don't trust Ma'ake to stay healthy. He is too big, old, and injured in the past.

I think we'll get a versitle LB that can do everything ok, but isn't good enough to start anywhere. Probably someone who is predominantly an IlB....but at the same time I don't see Carter back next year.

I see us signing some BS wide reciever in hopes that he pans out to be ok. Sort of like what we did with roydell williams and joey galloway. Maybe Brandon Stokley?

Re: free agency 2011

If we target a FA WR I hope its someone we can either get cheaply or at least reasonably I would really like Malcom Floyd but think he will demand too much money and will probably end up staying in San Diego. James Jones would be a good signing, with the caveat of not over paying him.

For RB there honestly probably isn't anyone who will represent a good value. The only game changer on that list is Charles and I doubt he will leave KC (or KC will let him leave I should say)

For Oline I think Nicks could be interesting, he is only 25 or 26 and has played on some very good teams in the Pros and college. He is HUGE at like 350 for a guard and would help open some holes for whoever we have running the ball next year. I also think he will be a good value, we would certainly have to pay good money for him but not top tier money.

For DE Victor Abiamiri would be a good cheap addition in my mind (full disclosure he is a ND kid and I am predisposed to like ND players)

For NT Barry Cofield would be a good back up/borderline starter

ILB Barrett Ruud would be awesome had a down year (for him) so may not want too much money

Now obviously I do NOT want us to sign ALL of these people but a few of them would be good additions.

Re: free agency 2011

I know this doesn't exactly go with the theme of the thread but I have been wanting to say it for awhile.

Missing out on Karlos Dansby was a big whiff by the front office, guy has been money in Miami.

The only thing I can think was that he was coming off injuries in 2 of the past 3 years. You can't argue with the guys production that's for sure

Yes because the owners are legally forbidden from using replacement players. There will be a season, probably just not an offseason like we're used to.

Then with all the talk of a lockout, and if owners are really forbidden to use replacement players, then what will happen next year??

Re: free agency 2011

I want Jolley. If Pat Williams comes back, he'd be a great NT.

Yep. The players will cave in as soon as training camp is about to end. You see the way these guys spend? No way they sit out a season. Like Patrick Ewing said many years ago, "we make a lot, but we spend a lot".

I thought I have seen it both ways. Do you know what specifically forbids them from using replacements? I had read a real good article on why the de-certification tact won't be a very effective tool this time around, but now can't seem to find it.

Re: free agency 2011

I've always complained about pre-season games but now facing the possibility of not having any I am starting to revise my opinion! Imagine if the games counted right out of the gate?

Would have been nice to have landed him but he simply picked Miami.

Re: free agency 2011

I think we should go after Aubrayo Franklin, but I am not sure if that site is up to date and whether he'll be a FA next season.

Re: free agency 2011

There's going to be a lot of big names available. I expect we'll hit free agency hard.

I have no problem with hitting free agency hard, as long as we also do it smart!
