What to Possibly Expect This Offseason

Looking at the moves made so far in free agency, this is something I've came up with for how our offseason may turn out.

Free Agency

  • Sign Flynn to play QB in a familiar system (WCO)
  • Sign Laurent Robinson to be a deep threat for us and a go-to guy in the red zone (11 TDs)
  • Sign Richard Marshall to play nickel (17 INT in 6 seasons)
  • Sign Eric Winston to play RT; Murtha will be backup OT and battle Jerry for RG.
  • Sign OJ Atogwe to a 1 year deal cheap, non-guaranteed, fully incentive contract. If he can stay healthy, I'm confident he could do well under Coyle.
  • Resign Steve Slaton to be insurance for Bush.


Trade down in the first, no really good value at 8, pick up 2nd round pick.

1. Nick Perry, OLB/DE. Had a strong senior season to go along with his great combine. Fits Ireland size mold also.

2a.Coby Fleener, TE. After NY Giants pick up Martellus Bennett, I see Fleener falling to #10 in the second round to us. Green Bay likes their TEs, having 5 TEs on the roster last season. Expect something similiar here. Fleener is a go-to guy for Flynn.

2b. Mohamed Sanu, WR. This guy is a very productive player in college and is very quick and runs good routes (Hello, WCO?) Had 115 receptions for 1200 yds last season. I was going to put Streeter here but he's raw on short-intermediate routes, which I'm pretty sure are key in a WCO. Not too sure, but I have Sanu for the underneath and Robinson for the deep threat.

3a.Mike Martin, DE/DT. Martin had a great senior bowl and good combine to boost up his stock. With Langford potentially gone, we pick up Martin, who can play 3-4 DE and 4-3 DT.

3b. Josh Chapman, NT. Two down run stuffing nose tackle that was a key part of the 2011 Alabama defense. Due to knee surgery, he'll fall to this pick and will be a good run stopper.

4. OL. I'm not sure which one, but if someone falls on draft day I see RT/OG the pick here.

This was just something quick I threw together, so sorry for not having long, detailed descriptions. Tell me in the comments whether you agree/disagree that the offseason may turn out like this and discuss below!
