Re: Free Agency Begins in a Week, Whats the Plan?

Average cap space = $21,082,653, so the Skins are smack dab in the middle. (if you take out the top and bottom 2 just because, then it drops to $19,724,306. )

I don't know that that means anything at all, other than a "good" FO ought to be able to work with the space we have. Since I think we have a good one now, I am hoping that we see some positive and sensible moves from the Skins in the next few days.

I can't imagine how busy all the FO's are right now, well except for Dallas LOL

Yeah his fumbling was a huge issue as well. He's like another Brandon Banks to me.

People didnt wanna pay Garcon 42 million. Just baffles me, so if Byrd and Weddle arent worth 40 million each, what are they worth?
I don't think 5/$45 for Byrd is too much. I think it's right around what he's worth.

But if you sign him for that price...then what? Keep going until all the holes are filled and all the cap dollars are used, or still play it close to the vest after adding a talented player like Byrd who is already in his prime years?

You could go either way, I suppose, but there's a difference between signing Jairus Byrd just so you'll have Jairus Byrd and signing him in an effort to put a much better defense on the field.

Basically, do you grab Byrd, Spikes, and Linval Joseph (overpaying all three if necessary), or is Byrd the end game?

Teams have so much room to spend this year that I think FA will be one helluva free-for-all, right from the start. The Skins had better get on the players they want right away and have Plans B,C, and D in place, as well.

Last year, TB signed Dashon Goldson to a 5 year/$41.25MM contract with $18MM guaranteed. I think it's reasonable to expect Byrd's contract to exceed Goldson's.

Re: Free Agency Begins in a Week, Whats the Plan?

Well since Byrd alone can't turn the defense around, then if you do sign him there is no way we can stop there. But overpaying 3 players is crazy Vinny stuff of course he would just stop with Byrd.

I would look at a cheaper option at FS and focus resources on the entire team not one position.

I love Free Agency! The more teams with money to spend, the better the show.

Heaven help any team that gets into a bidding war with the Raiders, Jaguars, or Browns! What if the three of them get into a bidding war amongst themselves over a player?

Does anyone know if the Raiders have said they'd be active in FA? I'm wondering if the financial health of the franchise will hold them back. If they don't spend big, it will drive Raider Nation (more) crazy!

Watch out for the Jags! They have an extremely wealthy owner who will spend and he wants to someday move his team to London. He's got big plans for his franchise.

The city of Cleveland and the Browns organization are both horrible in so many ways. Nevertheless, they have plenty of cap room and they will spend.

Indy is also a real threat in FA. Irsay has a lot of cap space and he will spend. Indy has a lot to sell in regard to the team on the field. They are an improving young team and Andrew Luck will be around for many years to lead them.

Let the games begin!

Me, too. Michael Mitchell is a playmaker who would make us better at safety.

Re: Free Agency Begins in a Week, Whats the Plan?

Hey all, lifelong 'skins fans (40+ years) and newbie to the board....

my take on the priority needs are...
1) Safety, 2) OLine, 3) ILB

I'd also like to see some upgraded play at...
4) CB, 5) WR, 6) NT, 7) More OLine

With $22M in cap space, I think there's room to address my top 3 priorities in FA.

I'd target Cap friendly upgrades, as opposed to Top Tier in each position. I'd be thinking to sign 3 FA's for a total cap hit of $15m or so, which should draw some definite upgrades at those positions.

If a restructured contract or two comes around, then I'd consider pursuing WR or CB in FA as well.

Other than that, I'd focus on building through the draft and trying to coach up other young players already on the roster.
