[QUOTE]Hopefully 7 major contributors and 3-4 starters arriving in 2010. Then 3 more in 2011. Any free agency ideas?

Indeed, I like the speed and injection of youth and athleticism. I just hope most play up to their draft position.
As for free agents, I think LB and maybe TE could be a position they target, the below players will be UFA's following 2009 and could resign with their current team or be resigned. They'll also need to resign Wilfork, Mankins Gostkowski and make decisions on their other FA's (Faulk, Galloway, Watson, Neal, Bodden, Burgess, Green, Guyton, Banta-Cain, Alexander and Woods etc.)
LB- Matt Roth- Miami
LB- Aaron Kampman- Green Bay
LB- D'Qwell Jackson- Cleveland
LB- DJ Williams- Denver
LB- Kirk Morrison- Oakland
LB- Barrett Ruud- Tampa
LB- Mike Vrabel- KC (I'd love to bring him back for veteran depth, would he be open to return? We'll see)
LB- Rocky McIntosh- Wash
LB- Angelo Crowell- Tampa
LB- Demeco Ryans- Houston
TE- Dallas Clark- Indy
The really big fish could be Demarcus Ware and Julius Peppers, but both would most likely be franchised and could make over $20M with that tag or get a long term extension.
You also have to wonder how a potential move to base 4-3 will come into play with future personnel moves. Do they get players that can play both a 4-3 and 3-4?
