OK, Of our own guys. I point this out because we have a stated and proven track record of rewarding our own. Within reason. So here is the remainder of "our own" with what I think we will do.
1-Ginn (who supposedly has a $2.5M dollar offer on the table.
2-Edwards-already a goner
3-Larry Grant-Someone might make an offer late in FA (not much action on LBs especially with Tulloch in limbo) which leaves a hole for the draft or FA. it should be a wash on the salary though.
4-Chilo-we might sign this guy at a basement level if noone else pans out by camp.
5-Reggie Smith-To be honest we probably make an offer here. He's a good player and solid depth.
6-Bret Swain-Good luck dude.
7-Madieu Williams-If Reggie Smith gets signed elsewhere we pay him as backup.
Bottom line. By our stated policy of "taking care of our own" We are likely going to try and sign Ginn and Smith. Ginn costs us $2.5 maybe a bit more if we are serious. Smith made 750K last year. So that's realisticly 3.25M maye 3.5M in cap space.
Rookies will cost something. Don't expect anything monumental.
I know people want wallace but there are several good directions to go in Rd.1. TE and G seem most likely at this point. I also think we might consider a RB. There are a few guys worth a shot out there. We must address guard in FA or high in the draft.
