    As always, possibly moreso this year, free agency is going to play a huge role in where we go in this years draft. I 100% want to see Stacy Andrews on this team next year, as im sure many teams do as well. I believe we have the upper hand on every team but cinci in that we brought him in prior to this season and gave him the red carpet treatment, which can allow us to act quickly as soon as free agency starts. He is a monster at 6'6 347 and shows his power and dominance as a RT, however he also posesses great athleticism and enough quickness to be able to pull as an OG. By being able to play both LG and RT he allows us to go into the draft and go for either RT or LG, which prevents us from reaching for a player.

    Also, by addressing Oline in free agency, we are able to go BPA in the draft; if that happens to be oline than so be it. Two guys that really impressed me this past week at the senior bowl on the defensive side of the ball were Dre Moore and Red Bryant. Dre Moore for his incredible potential to make big plays will still being able to collapse the pocket(absolutel owned people in one on ones) although he has always been inconsistent. Red Bryant for his ability to just stand firm and occupy blockers. I also wouldn't mind seeing either of them take some snaps at NT; even though they both are tall they have the ability to play with good leverage.

    I guess the big thing im stressing is that by getting Andrews in as a free agent or someone on the oline, it allows us to take the BPA and not miss out on a great talent. We have many moves for the draft and i'm quite excited.

      Well neither of his last two seasons was he the exact focal point of the defense, and while his stats were impressive, he was never terribly dominating for too long. And "safe to say" is different from actually doing. While I have no doubt that he will be impressive, he hasn't done it yet. There's probably too much time being spent on this for irrelevant it is, though.

      I think it's almost a given though that we'll either have to address the OL or DL (and maybe even playmakers at skill positions) via FA and trades to have a completely successful off-season.

        So basically, since our 2nd is worth more than everyone else's save four teams and no one wants to go to those teams, we should trade our 2nd for Roy and Rogers. This would be huge if we could get something done, and they should be trying to do everything in their power to acquire one, if not both, of these guys.

          This was about I was about to write.

          Then I read the link and I can only think one thing about Matt Millen

          "WHATS A GUY GOTTA DO TO GET FIRED AROUND HERE?!?!?!?"

          I'd actually much rather see the Jets trade their first to Detroit (especially if Gholston is gone) for Roy, KJ and Shaun Rogers. But I'm actually wondering if maybe the Jets could hustle a little more out of Millen. Like their second rounder.

          • Looking at the pick value chart, Detroit picking 15 has a first rounder worth 1050, we have a first worth 1600 and our second will be worth around 530. So if our second would get it done Roy and Rodgers or at least just Roy, our first is 1070 more, which is almost exactly the same as their third. So if we do our first for their first, Rodgers, and Roy or if they'd rather we throw in a fourth or fifth I'd almost rather do that than with KJ in. Value should work fairly well, we could probably fleece Millen and we get a mid first rounder that we could go OL or DL, possibly OLB if somebody slips. We take care of two big needs and just slide down a couple of picks, I'd definitely love to do that deal or some variation if we could pull it off. Who would they want to get at 5 though to make it work? Edge rusher or CB maybe?

            EDIT: Is it just me or do you guys think SF would do that deal for Indy's first in a heartbeat? We could have to compete with them but that deal would be perfect for the Niners...

            • If I was a player, looking at it from the standpoint that neither team is all too good, I'd much rather play in the New York spotlight. Plus, I think we can offer more money-wise as well. I don't know. That'd just be my take on it. There is, of course, the strong possibility they may want to already go to a contender, and some team in the late first (or even mid-late second depending on what Millen really wants for these guys) that will offer up the picks. I'm sure most are solely considering Roy though, and that could work in our favor. If we're willing to take on whatever Rogers' contract is as well, they might just take our offer over everyone else's.

              And honestly, unless we were to do even more trades for players or FA pick-up's, I'd actually rather trade down in the first than lose the second.

              • Well i figure i would start if off; apparantly it's rumored that the jets are going to make a strong run at asante again this year. Although i was unable to read the article of Rich Cimini, I do beleive this was more him trying to get more people to read his blog/articles. I wouldn't be surprised to see us make a run at asante, but i do feel that our money would be better spent on the oline. If we were able to get a stacy andrews and possibly a floyd womack or jake scott etc. on the cheap than i can see us making a play for him. I just really can't justify spending the money on a CB when our team has numerous other pressing needs. I'm sure this won't be the last of the rumors to come out surrounding the jets prior to the offseason and i for one am happy rumors are starting to come out again! heres to the offseason boys.

                • With a player like that, I don't think I'd care all too much. We have a decent enough space of cap room as is, and I'm sure something will be done with Robertson so that that'll at least be fine for future years. Plain and simple, we need playmakers, and I'd love for us to bring them in at virtually any position. Granted, if we were given the choice between him and significant OL/DL help, then I'd obviously take the latter, but I don't really see a ton of players out there on the open market at his caliber. I'd much rather the Roy/Rogers thing go down, but I'd love to see this. I guess I won't get my hopes up too much, though.

                  • I'm not sure if anyone saw chad johnson just on espn, but they asked him the following questions straight up;

                    1) where do you stand??
                    - He answered basically on my own two feet (laugh laugh) But i am just doing what i'm supposed to do and relax and take it easy before the preseason

                    2)Where do you want to play?
                    - I want to play on a team that can win and get to the playoffs. I'm letting my agent take care of that etc.

                    3)Do you beleive the bengals could be a team that gets to the playoffs.
                    - He basically stuttered and just said i want to win..no comment next question.


                    Basically it just says he'll play anywhere he thinks he can win and get to the playoffs and doesnt seem to care if it's with the bengals, however he isn't the GM so it doesn't entirely matter. I still wouldn't be surprised to see him; i mention this just becuase there were rumors of chad for vilma.

                      Based on that interview, if he wants out of Cincinnati, he's going to want to go to a team that had a winning record and is likely to do so again. Now, maybe that could be depending on what they do in free agency, but as of right now, its not.

                        im kinda stuck in the middle as far as chad johnson goes. he is a great player, but he is all for himself. what if we have another disaster of a season again next year? he will quit by week 8 like he did in 07. also he has had a tremendous arm throwing him the ball the last 4 seasons, and even if clemens has all the potential in the world, he is no carson palmer. honestly, i think roy williams is just as good with a lot less mouth.

                        • Either one will be hard to get, and we'd be lucky to get either. And Chad is hardly all for himself, though people seem to get this impression somehow.

                          Of course, he reportedly said he wanted to go to Miami, so I'm sure it'll be more about the ties that he may have with people on a team than anything else. Granted, he doesn't really have the leverage in whatever deal, but still.

                          • I wasn't really alluding to him coming here, but just thought it was a fairly interesting interview he had. I would love to have him, but i would need to see significant improvement in our oline in order to justify him coming here.

                            I was also trying to see if anyone knows/could find Drobs arm length. I was to justify the move to defensive end and was having a tough time without knowing his arm length; it's not the end all characteristic of a 34 DE, but it certainly helps to keep the OTs off of you.

                              • I had a feeling this was going to be the case once al davis decided to let his senility get the best of him. It's really not that big of a deal, he'll basically serve has a defensive assistant and mangini will go back to calling the plays the way he did towards the end of the year. We were a decent defense towards the end of the year and i think that's where we will be next year. I'm assuming upgrades will be made as well, which will obviously be beneficial.
