Can you guys be more specific with FA moves?
FA Pick ups
Nnamdi Asomugha, CB--Stays in Bay Area and we have $$$ to spend
Matt Hasselbeck, QB--Perfect buy for Mentor and help Harbaugh implement WCO
Davin Joesph, OG--Before injury, rock solid. Better upgrade from Rachal
Chris Goocong, DE/OLB--Loved this kid at CalPoly. Comes back to Cali and provides depth and ST
Paul Soliai, NT--Planned as starter. Elevated play on Nolan's D in Miami.
Richard Seymour, DT/DE--End of career, but still worth getting for right price. Upgrade at LDE!
Each of those can be had, all six. They are not all top flight FAs. The only one is Nnamdi and he's available. The assumptions that he doesn't want to go here are just that, assumptions. My assumption is that we are a real prospect for him especially since he's firmly entrenched in the Bay Area Community. Sure's he's going to be expensive, but we have the money and the direction to spend it.
As far as the others, I will go into my thinking behind it as I knew I was going to get smack for all those FA. The fact is that we will be losing some key pieces of last year's D in Goldson, Manny, Franklin, Evans, and LaBoy...five on D! We need bodies and Soliai, Seymour, and Goocong fit the bill and are available. How much they will cost can be debated, but they are not going to call for Nnamdi or Logan numbers.
We have to go get at least four if not more FA to fill in our roster guys. Am I under valuing them maybe, but for the most part I can see one or two of my FA pickups to be too much like Seymour AND Joesph, but that's it. Hasselbeck will not command as much as McNabb, IMO. Can sign him to a two year deal. One year deal for Seymour and a long term deal for Joesph and Nnamdi. Goocong will compete for the starting position against Brooks, IMO.
We don't have to break the bank with Hasselbeck, Goocong and Joesph. I think the higher priced contracts will be of course Nnamdi and then Soliai, I think. Seymour's contract can be incentive based as well leading to make his contract palatable.
I hear what you guys are saying, but we got to grab FA and draft players. Six player can be acquired, four is more reasonable. However, I believe that we can certainly grab a CB, LDE, pass rusher, WCO QB, and/or a RG. All of them, Tico? At the same time?
Yea, it's like that in my head.
If you guys could give me some more specifics, I would appreciated it. Again, it's a mock. It's early and as always, these things become more realistic as FA and the draft approaches.
Thanks for the comments though.
