Next season we could take a BIG step, and by adding more young talent for next season, the better the chance we have to go all the way next year.
Just think??, we could use our first three picks on some great talent at WR, CB, RG and use the rest of our picks on the best players available, and in 2013 our team could be SO stocked with talent that not having our 2013 first rounder wont phase us, this upcoming draft will be very deep, it would be awesome to have another pick in the first 2 rounds ....and I know this is not Madden ..but for next year I want us to be in the best position possible to develop a DOMINATING TEAM ...
Just an idea ...what do you guys think ??
Personally, I hope we get a Bowe or Vincent Jackson type WR. A Grubbs or Nicks at OG in FA. Along with a 4th WR that can serve as backup returner. (Parrish or Royal) Then just draft defense heavy in the draft. Keep this dominant defense coming for years and years.
You do realize that signing Bowe/VJAX & Grubbs/Nicks would cost anywhere from 16-20 million in next years cap???? If we sign Alex, Rogers and Franchise Goldson to the rumored contracts of 8 Mill a year plus the 6.5 franchise tag that adds up to 22.5....Even at 16 mill + 22.5 were already at 38.5 of the 43 million in cap we'd have if we carried over. We'd barely have enough money to sign Constanzo and Morgan to new deals, let alone any other free agents.....
EDIT: I'm not even including Brooks in that scenario...He'll probably cost 5 or 6 million to retain just in terms of the 2012 cap #.....
For starters, I think they all of ours come cheaper than you think. Smith worth more to us than anybody else. If he were to test the market he'd see that. Rogers may be expensive. Contrary to popular belief Brooks is replaceable. Goldson too IMHO. Definitely not worth a Franchise tag. Costanzo and Morgan definitely not worth much but agree we need to retain them.
I guess I just don't think alot of ours is worth as much as alot of you do. I think our defense had alot to do with scheme than anything. Not saying they're not good, just they're not all irreplaceable. Kind of like the Steelers Defense and how they let guys go that are good in their scheme then do nothing when they leave. If you guys were general manager we'd have alot of over paid players from what I read on here.
Smith, Brooks and Goldson are all worth keeping but at our price. They're not irreplaceable. Rogers on the other hand, the nature of the position suggests he'll be a nice chunk.
