Looking forward to 2014 FA

We've entered the dead zone in the NFL calendar year.. So just thinking about next year where we finally have tons of cash to spend in FA. Clearly the focus is resigning our own players, then the draft and building from within, but would be great to continue to accumulate 25-27 yr old bargain talent to fill holes. We'll need to fill depth at RT, ILB, secondary.

But without a #1 pick and having a bunch of second tier WRs - perhaps we could focus the splash in FA on a top-tier WR, since a bunch are coming out...

WR:
- V.Cruz (NY) - ?? possibility if doesn't resign
- James Jones (GB) - ?? possibility, given GB is cheap

- Devin Hester (Chi) -- too old
- Eric Decker (Den) -- likely will resign
- H.Nicks (NY) - likely will resign ?
- J.Maclin (Eagles) - underachiever, but possibility if cheap
- E.Sanders - ? talent, needs to have good year
- D.Alexander (SD) - ?? depends on production this year
- K.Britt (Titans) - too many injuries, but interesting

Well, I can tell you that as much as I love to talk about Free Agency, you'll get ridiculed here for posting this thread this early. I got it when I posted this thread in November, you are posting this in June...

But to answer or comment about Free Agency in 2014, Brandon Browner is a name I have my eye on. Cruz is another, but I would be shocked if NY didn't franchise him.

Ditto for Geno Atkins.

Jacoby Jones, Hakeem Nicks and Jimmy Graham are all intriguing.

The RT position can be fixed if we get Jared Veldheer, Eugene Monroe, or Branden Albert.

Alex Mack is a great C.

Antonio Smith is a very good underrated 3-4 DE.

Ditto LaMarr Houston and Brett Keisel, who may get you a solid year or 2.

Henry Melton, BJ Raji, Paul Soliai and Randy Starks are also good DL.

Sean Lee, Brian Cushing and Brandon Spikes can all play ILB.

Sam Shields, Vontae Davis, Aqib Talib, and as I mentioned Browner are all intriguing.

Jarius Byrd, Chris Clemons and Ryan Clark are all intriguing.

So what about all the FA's that are on your team now, what if they pan out, do you pay all of them , what will your cap number be?

Re: Looking forward to 2014 FA

Well it's a good thing we don't try to develop talent in house. That way we can focus this summer on the talent other teams have that we might want next year.

as all Skins Fans in harmony say:

I hate the off-season!!!

Re: Looking forward to 2014 FA

Can't possibly begin to even talk about it. All players in the NFL age a lot in one year, and so much changes from year to year. With our own depth chart, for all we know we'll have a need at QB or RB next year and be all set with tons of depth at RT (extreme example, but still). And with players in the NFL, half of the guys you listed might have horrendous years or get injured.

Re: Looking forward to 2014 FA

Too much change happens in one year to possibly look ahead. If I had to guess Aqib Talib is on our map and if Clady cant get a long term deal done, he would be too.

We should sign Dana Stubblefield and Deion Sanders.

Re: Looking forward to 2014 FA

I'd like to look at the 2020 draft; if only Mel Kiper would breakdown film from Pop Warner leagues.
