The main focus will be to sign our own free agents, but we will not be able to or want to sign all of them.
I think that Ted Ginn, Carlos Rogers, and Larry Grant are the most likely to leave. We give Grant a second round tender.
Ginn does not bring enough to the table as a receiver to merit a big contract.
If Carlos Rogers wants a four year contract, we probably, and unfortunately, will not sign him.
Adam Snyder gets more money elsewhere.
Release /do not resign:
Larry Grant (with 2nd round tender)
Dashon Goldson (Tag if necessary)
C. J. Spillman
Tough choices have to be made. Ahmad Brooks is a better OLB than Parys and we do not enough cap space to keep both.
The money saved by cutting Haralson and Spencer will help pay the cost of keeping Brooks.
We lose Larry Grant to Philadelphia, but we get their second pick--#46.
Free Agent Additions:
Ben Grubbs OG 6-3 310
Pierre Garcon WR 6-0 210
We leave free agency with one good receiver and a major problem on the offensive line fixed.
We still need help at wide receiver, corner, another OLB, and depth of the DL.
We have extra second round pick for Larry Grant.
1st Kendall Wright WR Baylor 5-10 190 4.42
NFL prejudice against taking short receivers comes through for us.
2nd Josh Norman CB Coastal Carolina 6-0 203 4.49
Good combination of size, speed, and skill.

Showed he can play linebacker. Has 7 sacks and 12.5 tackles for a loss.
3rd Ladarius Green TE La.-Lafayette 6-6 237 4.64
Big, good speed and good hands. Our third TE.

Next Baalke conversion project. Was first team all-American as a tackle. .
5th Terrance Ganaway RB Baylor 5-11 240 4.62
Replaces Dixon as short yardage back.
6th Devon Wylie RS Fresno State 5-09 185 4.38

7th Kelcie McCray SS Arkansas St 6-2 195 4.48
