Free Agents I want to see signed

Post  Big_Pete on Tue May 03, 2011 7:02 pm

MLB Barrett Ruud (Tampa Bay)/Paul Poslunszy (Buffalo)
Goff is solid and should be better, but we really need that stud leader inside. Both Poslunszy and Ruud are deal fits inside for Fewell's scheme (playing in similar schemes); interestingly the Bucs have drafted their next MLB, so Ruud is likely on the move. Poslunszy is also a great fit having previously played under Fewell.

OLB Thomas Howard (Oakland)/Rocky McIntosh (Washington)
We need a veteran OLB who can compete for playing time and play special teams. Both Howard and McIntosh will be on the move from their current teams and both should be available for a reasonable price. We need someone with speed and good coverage skills which both of these guys do.


OT Jammal Brown (Washington)
Brown is a good solid tackle, he is an upgrade over Diehl and gives us a veteran while Beatty and Brewer develop. The Redskins likely want him back, but he also wants to play Left Tackle.
This allows Diehl to slide inside, giving insurance for Seubert who likely won't be ready to go at the start of the season. Seubert returns to the versatile backup role where he excels.
This signing could be at the expense of Andrews.

DT Tommie Harris (Chicago)
Sure he has been inconsistent, but he should be good value and a decent fit at UT. The Giants also give him the best help on the Dline he has ever had. Fewell's scheme has similarities to the Bears.
Barry Cofield is likely gone (St Louis and Denver top candidates)

C Samson Satele (Oakland)
Satele is a good young center with some experience. He should also be reasonably priced. He will compete with O'Hara for the starting job and gives insurance with O'Hara, Koets and Seubert all coming back from injury.
This signing also likely means that either O'Hara or Koets is expendable.

Our Offensive line would shape up something like

T: Kareem McKenzie, Jammal Brown, Will Beatty, James Brewer

G: Chris Snee, David Diehl, Shawn Andrews*, Mitch Petrus

C: Samson Satele, Shaun O'Hara*, Rich Seubert, Adam Koets*

* two roster spots between O'Hara, Koets and Andrews


Our Linebackers would shape up something like

SLB: Thomas Howard/ Rocky McIntosh, Clint Sintim, Adrian Tracy*

MLB: Barrett Ruud/ Paul Poslunszy, Jon Goff, Phillip Dillard*

WLB: Michael Boley, Jaquian Williams

*Phillip Dillard and Adrian Tracy competing for one roster spot

I'd like everyone of those FA's as well. I don't think we will be willing to pay Brown the money he'll make in FA though nor should we. I rather see what we have in Beatty.

I think a Ruud/Poz, Howard, Harris, Satele Free Agency would be a very successful one.

Incognito was my first choice to succeed O'Hara at Center my second was Pouncey, my third Satele.

I am not sure Beatty is ready to start at LT, but we also want to move Diehl inside. but Beatty and Brewer have potential. I actually prefer Beatty as a potential RT replacing McKenzie after the season.

Shawn Andrews is worth $7 million this year
($3 million salary (+ $3.5 million roster bonus due on 30th day of "league year") + 500k annual workout bonus)

we could use that for a deal for Jammal Brown if we wanted to.

Shaun O'Hara is also due $3.45 million

If we wanted to, we could savee $10.5 million from these two, which would go a long way towards signing Brown and Satele. Personally I think it is well worth considering.



Which would give us a roster of

T: Kareem McKenzie, Jammal Brown, Will Beatty, James Brewer

G: Chris Snee, David Diehl, Rich Seubert, Mitch Petrus

C: Samson Satele, Adam Koets
