Re: 2012 Free Agency Wish List

Offense - Ben Grubbs because Carl Nicks is likely going to cost to much for a guard and maybe a little too big for ZBS. Definitely Chris Meyers - a Shanny oline guy and yeah he's 31 but this team is younger. I don't think any of the big WR's are attainable either by FT or bidding wars, maybe Meechum - Eddie Royal could fill 2 roster spots, one being a Banks replacement and possible slot (Moss).

Defense: I'd like to see us bring in another CB, like Brandon Carr and we're going to have to find a Carriker replacement. He isn't going to give us a hometown discount. Thinking maybe Calais Campbell.

He would be a nice addition. We sure do like those ex-Ravens, huh? The Ravens' prolonged success must really eat away at our front office.

Ha! Mostly, yes. He must particularly be mad about all the lost revenue from former Skins fans from Maryland that have defected to the Ravens over the years.

Correct. The newer generation coming up in the DC/Maryland area will be Raven fans due to the fact they are a winner. I think as kids, we tend to pick the winners early on and that's how we become fans. (or it's inherited via family)

Re: 2012 Free Agency Wish List

Ravens are easy to attract relatively because you can convince them they don't need to uproot their families

Not that it's not worth a shot to see if Royal can surprise, but he's unlikely to provide any help here.
Well since we might not have Moss, Armstrong, Stallworth, and Austin it would make sense I guess... not like Banks or Austin saw much time at WR. And Stallworth was cut before being brought back. Though I think we will carry one less receiver this year.

Re: 2012 Free Agency Wish List

If we have a pro level WR core there is no need to keep 8 guys again this year. I could see us keeping 5 or 6 at most.

If we bring in Colston and Royal; then we go into next year with Colston, Gaffney, Hankerson, Royal, and Moss. Add another rookie and there you go. No need for 8 WR again.

Re: 2012 Free Agency Wish List

Wow, just looking at the new revenue sharing for 2012. New TV contracts ($3 bil) kick in, that's $1.1 bil more than the year before.

With $19 million per year per team plus add that to the fact that teams will be able to add unspent 2011 cap dollars to their 2012 salary caps ($13.6 mil for Skins) and we will see some record deals for top players and very pricey contracts for average players.

Re: 2012 Free Agency Wish List

We need playmakers. I see no reason why we should sign run-of-the-mill WR's in FA. We already have enough of that type. For me, it's VJax, Bowe, or bust.

I would make an exception for Eddie Royal because of his versatility (KR/PR) and his record of success with MS as his HC.

I so read this as one of your "hint/clue" post.

I was thinking now is a Raven/Crow a migrant bird and which Raven is he talking about.

LOL! Thanks for messing with my mind.

Re: 2012 Free Agency Wish List

Just read a Tweet by Matt Williamson that the Dolphins are going to the 4-3 defense...

"Matt Williamson
Talked about it on today's podcast, but #Dolphins going to 4-3 makes no sense at all to me. Have to Solai will then leave in free agency"

I think Soliai (who should be a UFA) would be much better at the NT position. If Carriker leaves, then put Soliai at DT, and have a rotation of Cofield, Jenkins, and Bowen at DE. Also, those three guys could be our pass rushing DL on 3rd and long.
