In Response to Re: 2 FA's that BB should bring in next year!!!!
[QUOTE]I'd like both but I doubt Williams will be available. Finnegan - I don't think will cost more then Boddens deal. Maybe slightly more but around the same amount so I'd happily give him that contract to bring some stability to the secondary. Williams - For Hou they have Foster as a RFA so they don't need to use the tag on him and other then that they have no one to use the tag on so I fully expect them to tag Williams unfortunately. Instead of Williams though I'd look at Roth. I thought we should have signed him this past off-season (imagine if we had Roth instead of Anderson) and BB tried to sign him so he does like him. This would be a good year to grab him if the Cunningham experiment is over. Still don't think he would cost a ton. Around 3-4mil a year should do it for 3 years

You are probably right on Willaims. He is part of their core, and I highly doubt they let him walk. They will franchise him if they can't agree on long term deal.
I like your thought on Roth. I wanted to see him this year, but for whatever reason it didn't work out.
I would target Roth in FA to play DE/OLB, and one of Finnegan or RMathis from Jacksonville to play CB. We add a guy like Jerel Worthy via the draft at the end of round 1, and we have solidified the line plus the CB group. Unfortunately, we'll need 2 more positions via the draft as well.
Safety to play opposite Chung (TJ McDonald, Lester, Barron via the draft)
LB to play with Mayo & Spikes (Manti Te'O, Luke Kuehly, Zach Brown via the draft)
If we get those 2 of those 3 FA's above + 1 of those guys I listed above at Safety and LB, this D will not only be more aggressive, but have speed in the right areas as well.
