Guess what? We're not even going to be able to agree on areas of need. I think we have more needs than just DB, OL, and ILB.

For one, we need a competent backup RB. Helu is still not running after his injury and Royster is your typical Big Ten plodder. If Morris goes down - and he's sure to be injured enough to miss time at some point - we've got nada.

We also need one more TE. I can't imagine Cooley coming back and Niles Paul is no TE (or KR), although he is good on kick coverage. That means we have Fred Davis coming off of injury and Logan Paulsen at TE.

We need a DT who is very good at rushing the passer to apply pressure up the middle on passing downs.

We need an explosive player on offense, either at RB or WR. Maybe someone like RB Kenjon Barner or WR Marquise Goodwin (I don't see a FA who can meet this need).

Re: 2013 Free Agents

I hear that we have interest in Louis "injury prone" Delmas of Detroit.

Re: 2013 Free Agents

Delmas could be a low risk high reward type guy. Not sure what kind of injury he had, just that it was a knee and kept him out of 8 games this year. He was a good/very good safety his first couple years and, if recovered could be a nice pick up.

"If recovered" being key.

Re: 2013 Free Agents

Louis Delmas would be a good signing and draft he's student Jonathan Cyprien. Safety problem solved. Next it might be out there but Titus Young would be a beast in this offense. Him and Pierre would be a dynamic duo.

Re: 2013 Free Agents

I personally think we need a scat back, a Darren Sporles type. Morris is a powerful runner. Additionally, I think Fred Davis is luxury we cannot afford with the cap number the way it is, I hope he resigns... Just dont see it.

Safeties, I acutally think we will be okay with what we have. Merriweather and Jackson should come back strong, Corners started to play very well on the back half of the season, now if they can keep it up remains to be seen. Hopefully Minnifield and Crawford will have a good camp, but nothing to bank on just yet. Orakpo and Kerrigan should help with the pass rush, with Jackson being a strong rotational guy.

I might be in the minority, I just do not think we need that much to really turn the corner. RGIII needs to be a better passer and the damn wide receivers are getting open but struggle to catch the ball.

Right tackle is a concern, but the left side and interior looked pretty solid.

As much as we all love Fletcher, he is getting old and losing speed quickly. MLB has to be a area of need.

I think we all agree there is going to be some money that will need to be moved around and/or restructured.

This offseason I would look more toward depth versus the big name signings.....

Thoughts?

Re: 2013 Free Agents

JayRoc, Ive been calling for a 3rd down, change of pace back as well. I think there is a need and Helu cant stay healthy. So I strongly agree there.

But safeties and corners you're completely wrong. Merriweather was injuried all year and Jackson is a tweed head. Jackson absolutely should not come back. Merriweather should be back, but you cannot depend on him. We need a new starter at FS and another young draft pick at SS. We need major work at CB too. Hall cap number is way to large, Minnefield is chronically injured and Crawford is still a project.

We can afford Davis and think he is a must sign. We have the leverage there as well. I expect a small deal with decent numbers.

Re: 2013 Free Agents

T. Jackson can't have his case heard for reinstatement until 8/31/13 at the earliest. Probably not a good idea to rely on him for anything.

Re: 2013 Free Agents

I believe we'll see Hightower back. He should be healthy by now after sitting out a whole year. He'd make an excellent 3rd-down back. He gets yards in big chunks and is also a great pass-blocker.

Hopefully he can stay healthy if only used on occasional 3rd downs along with Helu.

Re: 2013 Free Agents

Well Slaton is still out there, and we showed a lot of interest in Justin Forsett and Antone Smith (though he's an RFA) last summer as well

Personally I'm not against taking a look at Reggie Bush either

Re: 2013 Free Agents

He's going to want too much money to play second fiddle to Morris.

Re: 2013 Free Agents

Reggie Bush is gonna be looking to get paid. And I think someone is gonna dish out, think we will get priced out with our cap issues. Is he gonna be 28 when the season starts? Think he'd probably want to go someone with a big role.

Re: 2013 Free Agents

Is it true that Roy Helu is still not running

Re: 2013 Free Agents

I don't know that specifically. I know his recovery has been slower than expected

I wouldn't mind seeing Hightower come back. He's a perfect fit here.
