Re: Play GM:

I think if I'm GM I would be very patient this off season. At least half of the teams are over or near the CAP and would not be able to sign any draft picks.
The large swords have not yet been swung. Gonna be a Patriots kind of off season for sure.
As GM I would be frustrated by not having any 4th, 5th or 6th round picks. With a record amount of underclassmen (~75) declaring for the draft I would do what I could to get me some. If Mallett ain't going for 1st rounders I would say to Cleveland "Look, you know you want this Kid, let's talk a series of 4th, 5th and 6th round picks that gives us the mid second round value that Mallett is"
I'm not Tagging anyone. At least half the Teams ain't gonna be picking fruit off my tree so I ain't chasing anyone either. Talib is gonna need to sign a incentive laden deal or leave and my medical staff better be sure on Vollmer's back or I ain't risking 8-10 mil here either. Does Kazur ring a bell here.
With my draft picks, hopefully a few more added, I take advantage of a deep DT draft and LB. I need a stronger D on a budget and rookie salaries are what's for dinner.
I would however grab one big wide receiver in the draft.
With my salary cap money I fill in the blanks, I would at least throw a number at Melton or Starks.
I wait for Philly to make a move with Nnamdi Asomugha and or Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie
Connor Barwin is on my radar...
Brandon Moore would be a solid guard, even at 33...
I want to know once and for all if Ridley, Vereen and Bolden can play. And the only way to find out is they need to play. So Woodhead moves on but it kills me....
Lloyd, I woulda cut after week one....
And I would sit down with Wes one last time as say "do you really want to walk away from the best gig you will ever have"
And, I would "sweeten" Ballards deal a bit to let him know his future is here.
And keep my powder dry....there's gonna be a slew of cuts in camps this year....
