Well at work today I havent done much of anything so I started thinking about the offseason. I'll try to break it up into three parts our FA's I think we should keep from our team, FA's we should go after, and who I believe we should go after in the draft.
So for part one the people we should keep now I know theres a couple of different ways to go about this but this is just my opinion. As far as who we should keep I would like Hartline, Bush, and Fasano. As far as who I would be comfortable letting walk that would be Long, Starks, and Smith (probably patterson to just for cap reasons unless he restructures). I really dont believe we need to pay long that much money I really like the guy but giving martin a full offseason to get stronger I think he'll do just fine. Starks I woudn't mind him staying but just like long I think Odrick is good enough to replace him. lastly after what I heard smith wanted as far as a contract I definitely don't have a problem with him leaving either. Now for the keepers hartline has to be here one thing for a young qb to grow is chemistry and he obviously has that with Hartline. I will say as much as i'd like to see more of Lamar Miller I woud still feel better with bush, between his work ethic and the respect he has in the locker room I'd like him to stay. Theres been a bit of a debate on Fasano I think he's just what we need right now someone who can come in be a good blocker and still make those catches when we need it and I've always seen the TE position as more of a luxury than a need not to mention I'd like to see how they try to incorporate Egnew in this offseason.
Ok now we're onto part two the FA's I'd like to see signed. I think I'll start with the obvious and go with the WR spot i would prefer Greg Jennings over any of the other options he's a perfect fit for us and a number one WR still has gas in the tank being only 29 years old and a good teammate as far as I'm aware. Another person I had in mind would be Osi now I know a lot of people want a DE from the draft would I understand that it makes sense but I feel our secondary needs more help as far as the draft goes and a lot of you have said a great pass rush makes a great secondary so why not osi? Especially with vernon to back him up he would be another good teacher I believe. Not that I think this third move will happen as I'd be happy with the two above mentioned I'd like to look at byrd assuming buffalo doesnt bring him back. I do realize these will be some expensive moves more than likely but its not impossible.
As for part three the draft i wont be giving a full 7 round prediction as my knowledge of all the college players isnt that great but I will say that I am definitely on the Dee Milliner bandwagon and would like to make him our first pick at whatever cost I really think he could be just the guy we need in our secondary. As for the second round I'd like to take a shot at robert woods and either eric reid or matt elam. Another WR to help RT grow and more help in the secondary.
Just as a side note as well it would help to restructure dansby, burnett, and incognito's contracts as well I wouldnt say it needs to happen but it would help with our offseason. I leave you guys with my thoughts on the offseason hope you enjoyed
