  • Prospective Trades / FA Discussion

    Who do you think we could target, either via FA or Trade in the upcoming (though distant) offseason?

    One I'd be interested in is the disgruntled Deangleo Hall - a shutdown CB and Top 5 in the NFC - as good and younger then Newman (imo) - I'd love to have him and it appears Petrino is forcing the Jim Mora-era guys out. What they'd take and what we'd give up for him may be two totally different things. I could see us sending CLE's first for their 2nd and Hall or perhaps our first for Hall. Not sure they'd take anything less then our first for Hall, but if push comes to shove and he wants out, I could see them letting him go.

    Some guys I'd love to see us look at in FA would be Andre Davis of Houston (if Glenn doesn't come back) and Randy Starks of Tennessee.

    I believe Bernard Berrian and Bryant Johnson will be FA. Either one, I would really like to add some youth to the receiving core, but probably will be expensive. Though I will be more then content with Crayton and Hurd.

      Trades

      - Chad Jackson for Bobby Carpenter. I don't usually bother imagining trades, but if Jackson is healthy... I'd consider this one.

      FA

      - Alan Faneca - Probably cost too much, but I'll list him anyways.

      - Tommy Kelly - I may be in the minority, but I respect him as a player and think he would fit in nicely at DE and provide a better push.

      - Albert Haynesworth - Not sure if he fits in at NT or if we have the need, but I'd love a big body like him. Imagine practice with him going against Gurode daily. hahaha.

      - Brandon Stokley - If he comes at a reasonable price. Could be next year's version of Wes Welker.

      - Doug Gabriel - I've always admired him from afar. Another cheap eats situation.

      - Chris Kemoeatu - Haven't watched him in the pros, but liked him coming out of college.

      - Asante Samuel - Do we even bother to try?

      - Randall *** - Definitely would love to land him here. Eliminate the need for a first round CB. Proven and you know what you're getting.

      - Drayton Florence - I have a funny feeling WP may want to bring him here. I hope not.

        I like his co-hort Starks much better and he has 1-gap 3-4 experience - not sure Haynesworth would make it to Valley Ranch alive if we signed him...

        Nnamdi Asomuga is a FA and I like him 10x better then Asante

        I also think this is a likely pick-up as he knows the defense but I think it'd be a huge mistake

          I had proposed Ocho Cinco.

          DeAngelo not so bad. He and TO can spit on each other.

          I also think Baltimore maybe ready to blow up -- some talent their. Ray Lewis just blew up BB on the radio last night.

            I cant really see us bringing in a huge ego/contract this off season...how would it work??


            Deangelo, Samuel, Haynesworth, Berrian, those guys will want top tier money...We would have to let alot of people go to make it happen, Berrian is probably the cheapest who makes the most sense, but he is still pricey...


            and as far as DB's, were already old, id prefer to bring in a guy in the draft who is young and doesnt mind playing nickel, id much rather go after a 3-4 DE if we get anything

              I don't the see the problem with addressing the DB situation by FA and the draft. If we can add a veteran like a Tory James, Randall ***, or even Florence and add a young stud through the draft, I would be very happy with the depth we have.

                I like that idea. Kid has great size and has been pretty consistent so far. But again pricey.

                  I don't like Starks at all. He's probably worse or the same as Spears.

                  I didn't know Asomuga was a FA, but do you really think the Raiders let him get out of their grasp? At least there was a rift between the Pats and Samuel. For my money, I'd rather have RandallGay, but unless we overpay, there's no way he comes here without a promised starting position in his hands.

                    Samuel and Asomuga are going to be so expensive if they leave its not even funny, both of those guys can be said to be better, or the same level as Clements, do we have room for that type of contract on our team anywhere? If so a big price player that we have right now would have to go, more then a few actually to spend around 80 million on a player, I mean it sounds good I just dont see the need...


                    Id rather we spent those bucks on a weakness right now, D line or Safety, id even welcome it along the offensive line because Im all for making sure thats a strength not a weakness on the team, but other then that, seems like too much money to spend somewhere...

                      I like the idea of Bryant Johnson. He's sort of flying under the radar, so he might be relatively affordable.

                        I would like to sign Bernard Berrian. With the emergence of Devin hester as a WR, I don't know if the Bears are gonna resign him. Berrian would be a perfect fit for our team, because of his ability to go deep. I don't think he's a complete receiver, but you don't need one when you have Witten and TO on your team. Plus, he's 27.

                          That's why I favor RandallGay most.

                            Berrian is the perfect Alvin Harper in JG's offense. Crayton hasn't displayed the type of breakaway threat that he showed early last year. Since his injury, we've never seen that since. He has turned into a more complete receiver, but the speed is lacking... at least on the outside looking in. It's really become evident with Terry Glenn sitting out all these games.

                            Not saying we need Berrian, but with him, we could probably cut 2 of our WRs.

                              With a speed WR in our offense and the lack of progression that Austin is showing(don't have facts...but he is in his second year and still isn't better than the 4th WR...and isn't a huge special teams contributer) I think it is safe 2 say two guys could go. Yes Austin has #1 potential in his physical attributes...but he doesn't show it in the preseason...and he doesn't see the field in the regular season...you don't hear things about him in practices. I mean atleast we get the occasional tidbit of Stanback being hard to cover in practice...or that Stanback can return punts and be a contributer on special teams. You don't hear any of this about Austin. Crayton is a JAG imo...he has good hands...but so does Hurd...I can't think of one thing Crayton has that Hurd doesn't have. So I agree...if a Berrian type guy came in we could lose 2 WR's and be just fine.
