    I would hapily pay him the cash he wants. I dont know what kind of tackler he is but if he's a good cover corner he would be a nice fit.

    There's alot of good CB's that come out of the 2nd and 3rd rounds around the league. I wish we could start using some of our higher draft pics on DB's.

    Does anybody know if winfield is a top 10 paid CB in the the league?

    This past season Winfield was the highest paid CB, because he got his bonus all up front in the form of a Roster Bonus. We front loaded his contract so it is much more manageable in future years. I think he made somehing like 13 million this year. Overall though I am pretty sure Bailey signed the most lucrative contract for a corner with the Broncos.

    We need to worry about an LB before a CB.

    we need more then one player on D besides smoot....if we were to even get him....smoot is arguably a top 5 corner in the league which means he wants top 5 money. we need depth as well..... seriously we have someone comming in the game named russian jones to play dime or bringing in idiots like derrick ross to lose two straight games for us i mean come on its not going to take a couple high profile players cause we can still give up the big play.......we get so spread out that all we do is go to zone and people get wide open against us........and get beat deep. By the way a cornerback is leading our defense in tackles lbefore a few weeks ago.........look at derrik johson or thomas davis in the draft cause since we are trying to rebuild versus spending a butt load of money

    Yes I like the idea of that except for one thing, williams is a FA as well. We can't give him a big contract, to play a position he hasn't played before. It could be a big waste of money.

    Let russell go though. But then we would need to decide on if we want to sign williams at a deal probably similar to what smoot will want or go with smoot. Then we would need to get a safety in the draft or find one in FA. There aren't any good ones that are FA's, so we would have to take the best one that gets dropped due to a big contract that his team doens't want to pay. This seems like the logical move to me.

    Would we have enough money to get a smoot and say a julian peterson or kendrell bell?

    Williams is a restricted free agent which means we would resign him to a one year deal potentially and maybe get draft picks for him or trade him before the trade deadline next year

    It cracks me up how once someone says to move brian williams to safety, everyone jumps on the bandwagon. I think he has plenty of speed to stay at corner he just needs to work on his technique with a coach that know's his ass from a hole in the ground.......hence the Dewayne Washington trade, who now is a really good defender in pitt.
    If you keep on doing what you ve done, your gonna keep on getting what you got.
