Ward is a Strong Safety and Byrd is a Free Safety. So if a team had enough money they could get both

Re: Rookie or Vet- who goes where?

If it were up to me, anyone we acquire to be a starter would be a young vet FA. But that's unrealistic. There are two positions where I feel we must go after top-notch, high-priced FA's if we are to improve our team significantly next season. They are FS and CB.

The back end of our defense needs a veteran leader. I would make it my top priority to sign a top FS for our defense. My first choice would be Jairus Byrd and my second choice would be Chris Clemons.

Secondly, our defense would gain a significant advantage by having a shutdown corner. My FA targets, in order, would be Aquib Talib and Sam Shields (assuming he's healthy).

That's where we need proven vets the most, IMO.

I agree that there is significant area of needed improvement on the back end, but I would suggest that the best pass coverage is a good pass rush. I would upgrade the D-line and OLB, in order to help the dbs. I wouldn't re-sign Orakpo I would use the cheaper solution of Jackson/Jenkins and have money to upgrade NT and DE.

I think they're targeting Byrd. I haven't heard anything about Ward yet.
