I would also like to see fewer free agents, but in Denver Shanny was never opposed to bringing in vets that could help him, even paying big $. Will be the same here, has been so far. I think we'll see greater value but I expect there will still be a no. of signings.
well they also threw away a few more to get Brown coming off an injury. they blew it last year, they got the concept right this year. now let's see if any of these guys can play. they need to hit some home runs with this past draft class.

They traded a pick for Brown and a pick. Don't call that throwing away picks for Brown

Wasn't it a 3rd and a 4th for a 29 year old that didn't play a snap in 09 and was coming off two injuries? Either way it was a bad trade cause of Brown's age and the risk factor.

if Brown walks after one year, thats a waste. Just like McNabb walking after a year.

The alternative was starting either a late round right tackle, or starting Stephen Heyer at right tackle. Yeah, when it comes to trading for Jammal Brown, I'm not going to complain a whole lot, risk factor or not. We needed a right tackle, we got a right tackle, and we couldn't get the guy we wanted (Ryan Harris). JB played hurt most of the season, but he and everyone else knew that he was going to have to play until the scar tissue in his leg broke up a little bit, and when it did, he played much better.

A 3rd OR a 4th for a 5th OR 6th (believe it ended up being Niles Paul) and a two-time Pro Bowler coming off one injury (the first time he'd missed significant playing time in his career)

I still think that the Brown trade was a good one. If he doesn't walk, he'll be healed and improved this year and we will have a heck of a tackle tandem.

What a coincidence: Study: Haynesworth still a top-three DT July, 6, 2011

Then I'd gladly bite my tongue and swallow my pride if he is on any other team except ours and playing at a Pro Bowl level.
