In response to bredbru's comment:
my new mock
byrd or goldson in fa
Both guys will get top end contracts and not sure BB would spend starting money on a S given McCourty moves to FS and you drafted Wilson in the 2nd with Gregory under a cheap contract
one of 7 or so pass rushers in fa
Are any of those guys better than Nink in the all around game? If not then I don't see them targetting a pass rusher outside of trying to get Scott back
welker 5 years 30 mil 12 mil guaranteed or tag
5yrs 30mil? To many years for the Pats, to little money for Welker. I don't see that even coming close to getting a deal done. Other teams are going to give him much more money then 6/year with only 2.4 guaranteed/year
vollmer if back problem over, 4 yrs 24
Seems about right given his ability but also his back problems
arrington 1 mil give or take (worst cb in league) take it or leave it 1 year
Someone will give him #2 CB money given he's been a starter for the Pats. IMO he's gone after this year
edelman 2 mil per give or take ie 3 yrs 7-8 mil
seems about right given his injury history
talib 4 yrs 24 mil (behavior alows voided contract)
Don't see 4yrs honestly. I see a 2 yr prove it contract 5mil first year guareenteed. This works out best for both parties. It protects the Pats incase Talib does something stupid and for Talib it rehabs his value while he'll still be under 30 for his next contract to cash in on.
brady restructures till 2014 tv deal cap increase
why? we have cap room and not a ton of people to resign, nor do they have cap breaker contract. Don't touch his contract unless it's an extension. The only reason to do this if they sign a max contract guy and when has BB ever done that, outside of guys on his team?
xavier rhodes (if ansah off board) in rd 1
larry warford in rd 2 (if frederick gone which i expect by mid 2nd rd)
whichever big outside wr with hands still available in rd 3. option b. in rd 3 speedy backer, option c. dt
if we dont get the safety and pass rushing fa, vaccaro in rd 1 (gholston or other pass rusher in 3); or rambo in rd 3 and ansah or other pass rusher in rd1)
warford in 2
good stuff. our de needs to get better and i dotn see any safeties other tghan chung that can do that. we'll see. i really hope bb adddreses.
re pass rushers, yes i think most of them are much better than nink and frees us up with our 3 picks. not all will want top $
re welker of course he wants more. i give him longevity (only 2 years guasrantee, no risk) and he can make good $ for his future, stay with brady and shot at hall of fame. if he insists on top $ i tag him as i say.
i can live with arrington walking. hes a liability whenver on the field. been saying this a couple years.
i can live with 2 years for talib, but prrefer at least 4 adn contract that allows us to dump him if his beahvior becomes too much.
yes the brady thing is if we need extra cap room though extending him would be nice as well.
