Still hope we can trade for Lito Shepard or Deangelo Hall. I wouldn't give up anything higher than a 3rd for either of them. Samuel is still a possibility. I don't think anyone was really delusional enough to think that Aso, Trufant and Williams would not be tagged. I hope we get at least 1 of these corners so that in the first round we could take Rivers or Conner who seem more ready for immediate impact than McKelvin although I would not be unhappy with McKelvin. I would be happier with McKelvin if we could get Briggs.

So you want us to resign Brian Young? I think we let him walk. Also, I think Moore is under contract already. I must admit I am unfamiliar with Kelly and Stewart, but we definitely need upgrades there. Good job. I would be happy with this if we can't trade for Hall or Shepard.

If we are not gonna be getting a top notch Free Agent on defense, then I would like too see us trade back up into the late 1st rd or early second rd and try and grab Cromartie too go along with McKelvin or Jenkins or talib.....

Good draft, but I think Leodis is gone by the 8th pick.

That Free Agent list is ugly. Man did the market ever dry up fast.

I don't know why you expected those three guys to NOT get tags. It's not a shocker.

If we can get a big FA signing all the better, but what we really need is a good draft this year.

We can fix our LB problems through the draft... This is a deep draft for LBs, and if we pick a couple in the 1st 4 rounds, we could fix our issues at MLB and WLB for the present and the future.

I'm hoping we go out and grab Faneca, DT Ethan Kelley from the Browns, a vet CB like Drayton Florence or William James, and one of the starting caliber FS on the market.

But if we do not go into FA and fill holes in the D well will end up the same way we were last season. WE must go out in FA and get at least one LB CB and DT do that no matter who is available we can take the BPA. IMO with C Williams franchised I would do this.

FA Signings
Lance Briggs- I know that everyone thinks he will be be overpaid and I agree but the bottom line is that we need LBers BAD. Lance can play WLB or MLB if someone falls to us in the 2nd like Lofton.
Drayton Flonace- I know that he is not the best player but we need CB's bad and Asante will want more money then anyone in FA.
Tommy Kelly- He is not the player i was hoping for but Droopy got this one.
Crumpler- i know he may cost some $$$ but this is the only player I would bring in to our O other then a Nesbit replacement.
Jacob Bell- Not a popular LG but he can compete...

Resign
Faine- He and Brees get along and Faine is the type of C we need.
Goodwin- A must because of versatility and he will not cost much.
Billy Miller- Another guy who should be cheap and is a good depth player
David Patten- Has a year left.
Lance Moore- I think he could be a good slot guy.
Marques Colston- I know he is not a FA and i do not see this happening until after the draft but he deserves it
Jahri Evens- SEE ABOVE

DRAFT
1st- This is dumb until the draft is actually here but I see Dorsey or Ellis being there at 10.
2nd- Lofton as the BPA
3rd- TRADE this pick and a 4th or 5th next season for Sheppard.
4th- Keenan Burton- is a guy that can return kicks and punt day one for us but he will have to improve his route running before he contributes on O
5th Matt Forte- i know this seems low for him but I do not think he will have a great 40 and we all know that some of the smaller guys will burn and jump up the board.
6- PLEASE DRAFT A K
7- WITH ONE OF THESE

RDE Will Smith, Josh Cooper
DT Tommy Kelly, Sedrick Ellis 1st pick
NT Hollis Thomas, Kendrick Clancy
LDE Charles Grant, Renaldo Wynn
SLB Scott Fujita, Troy Evans
MLB Curtis Lofton 2nd pick, Marvin Mitchell

FS Kevin Kaesviharn, Josh Bullocks

QB Drew Brees, Jamie Martin, Tyler Palko

TE Alge Crumpler, Billy Miller, Mark Campbell

That Free Agent list is ugly. Man did the market ever dry up fast.

It does so every year... teams are much better at managing their caps, and they don't let good players go.

Consider: if Colston was going to hit the FA market, do you think the Saints would let him?

Exactly every team but the Falcons (under McKay), Ravens, and Redskins have done a decent job managing the cap. So they have money to keep their best players. The franchise tag helps them do it. Without the tag teams willing to mortgage their future would end up with all the talent and smaller market teams that prefer to manage their cap would get the scraps. The reason baseball sucks is because unless you're fan of the Yankees or Red Sox you have little to no shot at the Series.

Everyone here would be crying if the owners did away with the cap and negotiations between Colston and Loomis broke down. Yes, right now the franchise tag stinks but it's going to come in handy in the near future.......
