Mock Offseason

how do you know that he or his agent haven't said anything, you are just speculating

He's gonna be a RFA and he's an All-Pro. New England will tender him high, so any team interested in signing him will need to give up a 1st or a 1st and a 3rd.

Unless a CBA gets hammered out in the next six weeks.

Horrible off-season. Why would we release a valuable reserve who's only making veteran minimum? Why would we release a SS who is only a rookie and just making rookie minimum? Why would we release Haralson who is a decent LB and if nothing else can put some depth out there for us? Horrible off-season in my opinion.

1. Mankins doesn't want to leave New England and has said so
2. With no CBA he's an RFA and you can bet the bank that NE will offer him the highest tender which means we'd have to give up a 1st and a 3rd for him, then what would we do in the draft?

You'll release Haralson but keep Wilhelm who's a backup at best? Wow.

This works though if we want Spiller we'd better get him at 13 or Seattle will likely grab him at 17.

No guard capable of starting in this draft? You're only addressing one of our needs here. Not good.

Pennington won't go anywhere he can't start and there'll be plenty of teams interested in his services. Brit Miller will likely be the backup FB next year if not the starter. Moving Baas to center and cutting Heitmann is a terrible idea. You want your smartest lineman at center to call out assignments. The only exception to this is if you run a pure zone blocking scheme which we don't.

No real problems with this except that Briggs hasn't shown that he's capable of being a solid backup which is why I can't understand you wanting to cut Haralson.

These are fine.

This would be a horrible off-season and would set this team back at least two years on offense. Plus there's no real upgrade on defense either and we definitely need more there than an OLB. If you're going to spend a 2nd rounder on a defensive player make it a safety.
Bass at Center?
