In response to PatsLifer's comment:
Tony g would be ideal, but don't see it.
we should have upped the ante on sanders and passed on amendola. Sanders would have cost half the money and would have been on the field more. Anyway, good to make another run at him now, but the price is now less than a third. It should be anyway.
normally I would say a DT, but without knowing Kelly and armstead timetable, I cant. If both Kelly and armstead can get on the field in the next 2 weeks, I would ride with vellano and jones. Both are playing well.
If we could get Jared Allen and fit him under the cap, I would do it. He and jones on the outside, velano and jones inside with nink, hightower and spikes at lb would be a very good front 7.
To me Armstead is still a major unknown. The guy hasn't even practiced in pads with an NFL team yet. Counting on him to give you anything right now might be a fools mission if you have the ability to add depth over him. I would still go after a DT, maybe not a starter but certainly a run stuffing sub player. If Armstead turns out to be what we need great, we roll 5 DT's moving forward. If Armstead turns out to be a JAGFTCFL then you were prepared and have a run stuffing guy already on the roster.
I'm still surprised everyone is putting so much faith into a CFL player who's never even participated in a full NFL practice that he can step in instantly after not playing for almost a full year, mid season and be a productive player
I hear what you are saying but the one unknown is what bb thinks of armstead. Yes, he hasn't made it on the field, and we haven't seen him, but we also aren't privy to knowing or seeing everything about him.
If a good DT is available, a something better than vellano or jones which I think have been playing very well considering, then yeah do it.
