Yeah Barber looks done and I think Choice is a solid player, can Felix carry the load? I dont think so. I heard they will pursue Michael Bush also.. This was on ESPN Dallas

Makes sense.........Ok then. Thanks GTripp

Re: Free Agency/Franchise Tag thread 2011

Here's an updated list of upcoming free agents

WalterFootball.com: 2011 NFL Free Agents

They have Soliai (Dolphins NT) listed as the second best tackle behind Ngata, and likely the best true 3-4 NT available in free agency. I really think we should look at this guy. With a lot of needs in other areas, and the emergence of Bryant later in the season, we could be set at NT. The Dolphins don't want to tag him because it would be too much money for them. I feel one of the reasons our 3-4 experiment failed, was the lack of a true NT.

We probably will face competition for Soliai, but since we don't have a true NT and limited picks in draft. I would not oppose to the move of winning the bid war for him.. I don't think we will need to worry about cap salary issue, since we have BA, whom is master with cap salary.. Finally, something we won't need to worry about during off-seasons for a while!

It doesn't look like the market for FS is good this year.. Which probably means we will need to draft one in top 3 rounds in the draft, assuming we trade down.

Dude If only we could rewind the time and bring back Johnson and Davis, I actually thought we were going to the Super Bowl in 99. If it wasn't for that Romo like botched snap I think we could have played with STL.

Re: Free Agency/Franchise Tag thread 2011

I really think Franchising Carlos Rogers #22 is a good move .. although he is frustrating as hell dropping balls left and right .. he is a damn good DB and the future of Rogers/Hall/Landry .. throwing in a little Kevin Barnes .. is bright .. don't let Carlos go, mark my words wherever he goes he will be a Pro Bowl DB

Yeah, you know your FA QBs suck when Gradkowski is the best option.

i can't get excited about free agency until the labor issue is resolved, otherwise FA talk is useless.

I agree except on the "he'll be a pro bowler" bit. I like him a lot more than everybody else does but he'll never be a Pro Bowler unless he learns how to catch.

Re: Free Agency/Franchise Tag thread 2011

I can't imagine that either Rex Grossman or Bruce Gradkowski is one of the ten best quarterbacks with expiring contracts. There's a lot of better players out there.

You must mean he'll be buying a ticket to Hawaii to attend the Pro Bowl, right? He's barely average. If we franchise him that would be dumber than Haynesworthless.
