First of all I think as most people think that Grimes is the number one priority!!! After that we have a couple options with our current roster, we resign Soliai or Starks, I think we will try and resign Soliai because he will be a little cheaper and is younger. After those two get signed then I would resign Clemons, Carroll, Spitler, Clabo, Watkins, and Keller if health that is.
After our free agents are signed I would want some contracts restricted, mainly Moore, Patterrson, and Gibson. I would include Ellerbe and Wheeler based on how bad they played last year but I don’t see that happening. If the players will not restructure the contracts then we trade Patterson for a late round pick, would like to get a 6th at least to replace the pick that we gave up in the Jordan trade to the raiders. Moore I think we could get a 4th or 5th for him at the least. Gibson we can get a 5th or 6th for as well, I would really like to keep Gibson if at all possible he is a fast strong receiver that can go through the middle that we really need. I would mind getting a couple free agent OL guys, such as Albert for sure and then draft the BPA in the first round or possibly trade back and pick up extra picks to use on the OL.
I think we need to also look at available running backs on the market as well, I don’t really care for Ben Tate not much production and already has a injury history, same with McFadden all though he would be cheap cause he has something to prove, could sign him to a 1 or 2 yr deal and see what happen kind of thing, the only other back I would bring in is MGD, he has been reliable for the most part and is a pounding bruiser that we need badly on this team. The only other thing I really want us to do is try and draft Thomas from Oregon mainly for Special teams he is one of those guys who can take it back at any time.
