Who knows? The "if healthy" part never happens.

I think you read the part about Spikes and not the part about Jones. Jones is the best coverage linebacker in the draft.

A lot of fans look at players in real life like Madden. If a player can cover, tackle, and stop the run- sideline to sideline they won't be a free agent. Spike is an intimidator at the ILB position and wants to be a 3 down LB. If Kirk can coach him up and help him to be a better player at 26 years of age. We can solidify the linebacker core for at least 3-5 years.

The Skins haven't had an ILB that could cover in about 4 yrs, Fletcher has been a liability in coverage for that long. So, any instinctive ILB that is mobile and can stay on the field in passing situations is welcome.

Sign if possible:

TJ Ward
Verner
I would love Mack
Smith LB previously with Ravens
Also go after Davon Bess, Browns just released him

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

My two cents:
Free agents with guesstimated cap hits:
WR Brandon LaFell 5
T Anthony Collins 5
ILB DQwell Jackson 6
ILB Perry Riley 5
FS Mike Mitchell 6
FA signing total: $27 mil.

Obviously I am presuming that the axe will fall to create cap space.

Draft:
trade 2nd round pick down to middle of second round, picking up extra mid-third rounder then:
C Marcus Martin 2/50
WR Donte Moncrief 3/66
G Dakota Dozier 3/80
NG Daniel McCullers 4/98
DE Brent Urban 5/130
TE Richard Rodgers 6/162
CB Andre Hal 7/194

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

By my calculation, we need to add roughly 7 to 9 starters on this team to be competitive...

RT, G, ILB, DE/NT, FS, SS WR... I just don't see how we can fill all those holes in the draft and FA, so I don't see the reason to spend more than a few million a year on any player at any position... Like we seem to always be, we are rebuilding ladies and gents...

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

I'd rather have Byrd than Ward. We need more of a FS than a SS.

I like the FA's, don't know enough about the draft guys.

Per John Keim:

Ward is more an in-the-box safety, but he can play deep as well. Cleveland ran the same 3-4 style of defense Washington uses, so Ward would be a good fit if the Browns let him walk

Agreed... If we spend large on a FA this year, which I hope we don't, I would choose between Mack or Byrd... My second mid tier targets would be Joseph and Nicks...

I believe it was Bill Polian on the NFL XM channel said Byrd's game was based on his speed and as you get older you get slower (there are exceptions to the rule), but he said people should be aware of this meaning no long contracts.

Let me make a correction... Speed to read the QB and diagnose the play, which never goes away as opposed to what you are referring to, literal speed of the player...

I hope you are wrong in your guesstimates of the salaries

LaFell is called "stone hands" by a Charlotte paper.... NO THANKS

I agree with Collins, and the salary.

DaQwell is not worth $6 million.... I would take him at a lower price

Perry Riley ditto.... I would keep him at a lower price

Mike Mitchell has started one season, and had decent stats, I hope you could get him for less than $ 6 million

I like the idea of trading down, if Shazier, Tuitt, or Ford, isn't available get more picks

Champ Bailey was released, would he finish his career where it started?
