defensive backfield is where you need to be concerned, it has been decimated by free agency

forget getting another rush LB, you already have 2 studs

I still think James Harrison has some gas in the tank, and would love to see D'bo knocking people out for the B&G. How much does Dumervil going to B'mo take away a potential suitor for him, and hopefully make his price a bit more affordable?
I haven't seen any other suitors and yes, losing his bid to join the Ravens should drop his sticker price.

You're saying Wilson and Gallette are studs? If so, I'd like to see them actually play in the 3-4 first. We definitely need depth with veteran experience.

This is just inaccurate. We have two guys that have flashed some serious ability, but are not studs yet and are in a totally new scheme--albeit one that seems to suit their strengths. Harrison would be a smart get, price should be bargain basement and a team can never have enough pass rushers!

This from Rotoworld:



The player rep for free agent James Harrison says his client has not closed the door on a return to the Steelers.
In other words, he's getting desperate. His Ravens visit was scrapped when the team landed Elvis Dumervil, and 35-year-old Harrison's market is cold. The Steelers might be willing to reconsider Harrison on a cheap, one-year contract.

Love the attitude he would bring. We need guys like that on the defensive side of the ball. But we are up against the cap, he only has a few years left, and I have heard no interest at all on our part.

He is a stop gap at best, and I would rather see what our young guys have.

But to answer the question, yes his services are more affordable with Baltimore out of the scene. Anytime you take an interested team out of the equation that person's value will diminish.

sign him for a year at a bit over vet min with incentives. having him around wilson and JG is worth signing him alone. actually playing for us would be a bonus.

Im not a huge FA fan but if Harrison came to us with a chip on his shoulder at a reasonable cap friendly price, Id love to see what he had left in the tank. His nastiness on the field would be a refreshing change for us. Otherwise, Im a proponent of young/hungry guys from the draft.

to me you gotta get both. if we draft a guy, the probability of him contributing from day one is pretty low, that's why you need free agency as a stop gap.

sign a vet for a year a two and hopefully he can contribute and help train up the rookies.
