    We need depth at the DE position if we're going to get more consistent sack production. I love Wimbley and Morgan too, but adding another guy who can get after the QB only makes their jobs easier and extends the amount of snaps we're gonna get from them. We can pay a vet this year, and then draft a DE next year or maybe even 2 years from now.

    We can still get a DT in the draft or FA. We have the cap space and we don't have many needs on offense outside of Guard. I think our offense's success next year is more on the coaching than anything.

    Oh yeah, we can use depth at the DE. But we don't need to bring in the Osi, or Freeney types.

    I would be satisfied at the DE if we drafted Sam Montgomery in the 3rd and signed a low level DE that would give us better depth than last year.

    My point is that we don't need to be spending big bucks on old man Freeney or Osi.

    Drafting mid rounders is what we have been doing. I'm not usually a big fan of going after the big name guys but Osi, Abraham, Avril, Bennet all should be on our list. Still build or line through the draft but we are playing for now. A 3rd rounder (usually) is to going to step up and make an impact like any of these names would for this season.

    Wyatt says we haven't contacted Abraham and he's been a free agent for over a week. We don't sound interested.

    Let's not get another Hutch. Do not need another guy who is a shell of their former self. Be careful.

    He had his chance, he suggested I delete the thread so I went and deleted 2 posts, he didn't take advantage of that and delete his post.
