Re: 2013 Free Agents

On a side note on a 2012 FA that was a fish that got away:

Eddie Royal NFL Football Statistics - Pro-Football-Reference.com

Looks like we didn't miss not getting him anyways. He was probably better off staying in DEN.

Re: 2013 Free Agents

some of the best FA moves every year are the ones not made. some pan out really well, but a lot of times it's better to be cautious.

Like the ones the Ravens don't make even though everyone thinks they should sign x player. One of the best if not the best drafting organizations in the NFL and rarely make any news with free agency. The Boldin trade for some low draft picks and McKinnie for two years and something around 8 million were their biggest moves recently.

Best players on each team are 99% of the time drafted and developed by that same team.

Agree with you that a scat back would be nice, but i dont think its a super high priority. if helu comes back, he could fill that role... i dont think Davis will be that expensive to resign. Between the injury and suspension, i dont think he'll be in high demand. 3Mil/year should be enough to keep him.

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 agree with you here. It would be nice to upgrade the defensive backfield, but as you mentioned, play improved as the season went on. I think our DBs will be "ok" as long as we have orakpo and carriker back take the pressure off our DBs.

Quote:
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.
I agree with your first sentence, but dont think RGIII needs to be a better passer. He already IS a great passer. I chalk his late season accuracy struggles, to the injury preventing him from planting properly. Receivers do need to do a better job of catching the ball. It seems, as a group, they either all caught everything or they all dropped everything in any given game. not sure what that wasabout.


Quote:
Right tackle is a concern, but the left side and interior looked pretty solid.
I agree with you. The sad thing is, there are quite a few stud RTs coming available this offseason, but we wont have alot of money to sign them. Maybe one of last years rookies steps up and we can get buy with adding a lower-tier value RT in free agency to compete for a starting spot/add valuable depth.

Quote:
As much as we all love Fletcher, he is getting old and losing speed quickly. MLB has to be a area of need.
Fletcher IS getting old, but i dont agree that he's losing speed quickly or that MLB is an area of need. He had one horrible game vs the steelers, but, other than that, was exceptional.

He was 8th in the league in combined tackles/assists last year.

He was 7th in interceptions .

He was 1st in interceptions among linebackers.

London Fletcher is one of the leagues elite linebackers. Period.

Obvioulsy, he cant keep playing at this level forever, but he's shown very little signs of slowing down. For the money, we wont find anyone better to QB our defense. We have guys on the roster who we're grooming to step in when he does retire, but we dont need to actively go out looking for someone.

Quote:
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?
I agree with your thoughts. If we didnt have the 18MM cap hit, id say we should sign atleast 2 top DBs and a stud RT, but given the hit, i think our top "big signings" should be resigning Fred Davis and the one man gang.

Davis would be near the top of my list of offseason priorities. The guy is a top 10 TE in this league and adds a valuable dimension to the offense. Not many TE's can stretch the field like he can and rack up yards after the catch.

Re: 2013 Free Agents

They didn't mention Ed Reed. I don't know how I feel. I feel like if you got Delmas at a low price or Goldson at a low price they could be worth it. Albert too is an intriguing prospect.

Agreed. Also, Branden Albert is the first big name we should sign. RT problem fixed and we'd have a VERY solid O-line all the way across.

From the other article, Ryan Harris would be an outstanding pickup at RT also. If he can avoid being another Jammal Brown that is...he's had injury issues.


Hopefully we get one of these two guys.

Andy Reid loves olinemen do not see the Chiefs letting him go, plus he would cost a lot.

That was a stupid write up on Davis.

If Goldsons leaves San Fran I don't see him going somewhere else for a low price. You go somewhere for a low price usually because they are super bowl contenders and you are chasing those rings, the problem is he already is on one plus San Fran has some cap room. I think any deal we could offer him they probably would have already offered him before.

Re: 2013 Free Agents

We're tight on the cap for this year.

BUT anyone know the estimated numbers for 2014? Does this mean that we have TONS of money to spend in 2014, and how much can we backload contracts this year?
