Who knows... I doubt anything too big is going on. Probably trying to clear room for Sanders, Abraham, and perhaps a DT and/or another CB for depth. Obviously they need a few mil in reserve for draft picks, and Lloyd may still return before tomorrow's 4 PM deadline on a cheaper contract.
My rough guess is that we are still sitting on 18/21 mil in space. And we could prob clear another 2 or 3 without much of a problem. The way I see it...they NEED an IMPACT d tackle who can get some preasure up the middle, an ELITE edge rusher ( Dumervile) and a wr who can get the respect of defenses to open up the underneath stuff for the other guys and Brady. Abraham was great and would be a good locker room guy, but....nah. The kid from Denver IMO is the guy they are going after...makes the most sense. They ll sign sanders, do the trade with Clev for Mallett and hope they hit it in the Draft with a wideout...we ll see I guess
You crazy? They haven't even come close to spending to the cap in three years...you think they're going to sign Dumervil? That will cost 8 million right now, and if they do a contract for Sanders I imagine that will be in the 4.5 million range. I can't see the Dumervil thing happening - of course it could be done (easily) but it may take a restructuring to land all those guys and a right tackle.
I'd do this...sign Dumervil, sign Sanders, sign a lower priced right tackle, try to resign Lloyd or another guy for 1-2 million, draft a defensive tackle with our first pick, draft a corner with our second and then try to find the best available guard. Edelman is a option now that Lloyd is gone too.
More than likely we will get Abraham, Edelman, Sanders, and Vollmer on a one year deal. That should leave somewhere around 5 million, which they won't spend. One of these two older guys (Wilson or Abraham) will retire before the end of camp - their spots will be filled with a cheap undrafted body or 3rd tier free agent.
Yeah....I'm crazy mr no it all....just like you know, or say,there "more than likely" situation is. My speculation is no more your speculation. So....cut me some slack, and respect my opinion. Or.....if you wanna be a tough guy, like you try to be to everybody else on this board, then we can deal with that also in a way that you prob wouldn't like. So chill mr tough guy .....relax....and let's have a good debate without calling people out. I don't think that you wanna call me out my friend....serenity is the key. Unless of course...I misread you and you were being sarcastic...if that is the case, then I apoligize
