Say no to Manny!!!!
Brooks will walk, IMO. Aldon will replace him as a starter and Brooks will want starter money with many other 3-4 team ready to give it to him. Therefore, we will need OLB depth for sure. Haralson is the other starter. However, I been thinking about the possibility of landing a FA DE/OLB. Maybe we go after Mario to see what it would take. He'd be perfect in our system as we play both 3-4 and 4-3. Holy cow! Having J. Smith-Ice-McD as our front three while Mario, Patrick, Navaroro and Aldon become the backers.
Williams-J. Smith-RayMac-A. Smith as a third down option is a ridiculous and awesome front four.
It won't happen just for the same reason Wallace won't happen...too much mula! Looks like Melvin Ingram, Courtney Upshaw (we would have to trade up into the teens), Nick Perry, Whitney Mercilus, Vinny Curry, Andre Branch, Bruce Irvin and Chandler Jones could be our next OLB depth. Personally, would love to jump up and get Ingram or Upshaw if one slid into the twenties.
Much cheaper than Mario for sure. Curry, Irvin and Jones could be had in the second, but Curry is moving up fast.
What do you guys thing about Super Mario being a Niner?
