    Would love to see us land an elite pass rusher like dumerville and won't be shocked if it happens. Helps the entire defense as a whole, consistent pass rush is a missing piece to our defense

    Honestly, if we can come up with the $8M we could have a legit shot. It had to piss him off that the Broncos are going back on their deal. I don't see the Ravens paying him since they are gutting the team right now.

    Only other team mentioned is the Pats, so maybe a 2 team race? (assuming equal interest by both teams)

    He hired Tom Condon as his agent. Pats don't faux with Condon.

    Yea I would think we have a legit shot at him. However I'm not sure it's gonna be well spent money. Our interior D line needs to have that collapsing effect for the DEs to get sacks. Our CBS need to cover to make the QB hold the ball. The system and the way it all exponentially builds is more important than a top talent DE.

    Yeah I agree with that. I am hoping Star falls to us for that exact reason. I just think the FO might be thinking DE in the 1st, if we sign Dumerville then we don't look at DE early.

    I think going DE at 10 would be a waste for the same reason you pointed out (needing yo fix the interior), but getting Dumerville allows us to address both DE and hopefully DT in a big way

    Well. one way to look at it is he and Wimbley cost about the same as one Mario. I wasn't in favor of this when it looked like 12 mil but was all in favor at 7. What is one mil more?

    We can't dump Wimbley now because it actually costs us money but next year we have the option of droppng Wimbley if he isn't pulling his 7 mil weight.
