Fletcher Cox just signed a huge deal with the Eagles before the season started

No offense, but to sign those three FA's would be next to impossible. And wouldn't signing both Cox (didn't he just sign a deal? Or was that someone with the Jets?) and Fairley be a little redundant since they're both DT's in our 4-3? That would be a lot of money to tie up in the middle of the DL (we're paying Rankins a first round contract as well and have him locked up for another four years) when we need an edge rusher - and if we were to be able to land Garrett, we'd have to trade up in the draft and then pay that contract as well. We'd be broke - fast.

And why Kalil? We just re-signed Armstead, didn't we? Does he play on the right side too?

I'd like to see us grab a RG and possibly a RT in free agnecy. Of course that's what we expected last offseason and we were panicked all the way up til the start of the season when we got Jahari back. I do wonder if we could squeeze one more year out of Streif and Evans. That's not unthinkable. Both are showing signs of aging, but are still playing better than most of the players that will be available.

Draft
Barnett, DE, Tenn
Williams, OLB/DE, Bama
Foster, ILB, Bama

and I also like
Jackson, CB/KR, USC
McCaffrey, RB/KR, Stanford
LF#7, RB, LSU
Legget, TE, Clemson

I do like drafting skill positions and fishing in FA for solid trench guys.

Top Free Agents for me....

1. Fairley
2. Aj Bouye CB
3. Kevin Zeitler G
I didn't realize Bouye was set to hit free agency. If he's on the table I hope NO throws the money at him. He's been fantastic with a really banged up pass rush and his name alone just tells me he belongs here.

If we're just talking about the dream scenario, where the salary cap and draft positions don't matter.

Draft:
Leonard Fournette
Reuben Foster
Myles Garrett

FA:
Trumaine
Zeitler
Collins

Now, if we're being more realistic, I'd like something like this.

Draft:
Reuben Foster
Adoree Jackson
Alvin Kamara

FA:
Zeitler
JPP
Fairley

If Reuben Foster is gone by our pick, I would want Barnett in the draft. Instead of targeting JPP in free agency, I would want to go after Jamie Collins. He could be our WILL, with Robertson staying at MLB. If Collins is out of our price range, I'd target Zach Brown to play MLB and move Robertson to the WILL LB spot.

We've got alot of interesting options this off-season. I haven't been this excited about an off-season in years.

FA:

1. Nick Fairley
2. Zach Brown
3. A Guard (I have no idea which ones are good besides Zeitler but his price will be nuts. Osemele got close to $12m/year which means Zeitler will go beyond 12m/year)

Draft:

1. Marlon Humphrey
2. Tim Williams
3. Jamal Adams (Not a need but the guy is an absolute stud.)

Free Agent
Fairley
Andre Branch (likely not available)
Reggie Bush

OG Dan Feeney
S Jabrill Peppers

Although I wouldnt be upset with:
OJ Howard
Leonard Fournette
DeShone Kizer
Quincy Wilson
or Sidney Jones

FA
RG - Zeitler (or Warford)
CB - AJ Bouye
LB - Zach Brown
#4 DE - Jabaal Sheard (or Devin Taylor)


Draft
1a. DE Derek Barnett
1b. TE OJ Howard (trade back into 1st) or CB Desmond King
2. RB Alvin Kamara
3. OG/OT - Forrest Lamp
4. DE/OLB - Ejuan Price

There's a lot of factors at play, particularly what we do with our own FA's in Fairley, Moore, BW Webb. I could also see us moving on from Cooks a year early in order to obtain a 2nd + 4/5th. We'd need to pick up a speed WR (Patterson, Stills, Woods, Goodwin). It really depends on which position group the team feels has the best depth (CB or TE). Both our CB's and TE's have experienced a lot of injuries this year, but we'll have to make a decision about Breaux and Fleener after next year who are arguably the top 2 at their position. Same for Byrd at the safety position, though I think we can bring back Rafael Bush for cheaper and let Byrd walk.

Draft: Too early to give realistic names so I'll go with positions...
Edge Rusher- This team seriously needs another rusher opposite Jordan
RT- Need a young stud to groom for RT that is familiar with the right side.
SS- Need another player at SS other than being one player deep

FA:
Gillmore CB from Buffalo (Under the radar type find that has been healthy since being in the league)
Brown LB from Buffalo (Should have went after him last year)
Leary G from Dallas (Use Lelito & Evans money to get this stud)

Resign our own FA:
Kuhn
Fairley
