    That site slows down my entire browser. Hugely.

    Anyway, with no new CBA in sight, that is one crappy list. Normally, I'd love to go after a Jammal Brown or something, but this way, it matters little.

    And you can't sign a FA, anyway, can you?

    Re:Finally

    IFFFFF we have some money.. Im not sure how things are gonna play out.. Id like to add one of these guys


    Le'Ron McClain, Ravens (R). Is the league's best combo power runner/blocker.
    Leonard Weaver, Eagles (CBA). Versatility makes him very attractive.

    Jahri Evans, Saints (CBA). Has become an elite right guard.
    Logan Mankins, Patriots (CBA). Remains a very good left guard.

    Julius Peppers, Panthers (U). Change of scenery might rev him up again. (IFFFFF Ray walks)

    Aaron Kampman, Packers (U). Might be better off switching back to 4-3 end. (Same as Peppers situation)

    Derrick Johnson and DeMeco Ryans please.
    Jared Gaither too and any of those safeties.
    We're bringing purple back.

    Re:Finally

    That is a great list.

    Unfortunately, most of the RFAs are not going to be attainable I think, which leaves McClain out of reach.

    But going down the list, we could really upgrade and add some depth:

    HB - If we let Taylor go, I would love to see us go after Caddy personally

    FB - Leonard Weaver was a target for us before and could be a huge addition

    OT - Jamaal Brown would be a very nice addition. Obviously Gaither would be a solid pick up, but would be too pricey as a RFA.

    DE - Just re-sign Ray Edwards

    LBs - Dansby would be a solid addition, as would Thomas Howard I think. In the middle, Kirk Morrison is one of the most underrated players in the league and would be a HUGE upgrade for us, especially if E.J. is slow in coming back

    CB - Would love to see us pursue Robinson. Also would not mind Rodgers or even Jackson for depth in the secondary

    S - Ryan Clark could make a monster impact in our secondary. I would also love to add Atogwe, who is another player waiting to breakout on a good team.

    Re:Finally

    Due to the new rules of the CBA, we can only sign a free agent if we lose one.. That goes for all of the final 8 teams

    This clause is most definitely not "set in stone" so to speak and there is some debate whether or not it will even be implemented and exactly how it will work.

    Also, I personally think a bargaining agreement will be reached.

    That said ... if this rule is in effect full forced, you will not only not be allowed to sign unless you lose, but you cannot ONLY re-sign someone of equal or lesser value.

    The major issue though ... if there is not an agreement and this goes into effect, essentially every single player will become RFA (with a few exceptions) anyways.

    It is all very jumbled and hard for everyday folks like us to follow.

    Re:Finally

    Also something to remember ... if there is no agreement ... any player that has been in the league less than seven years (they need six years of experience) would automatically become a RFA (for instance: players like Miles Austin, Elvis Dumervil, Nick Collins, Darren Sproles, Brandon Marshall, Kirk Morrison, DeMeco Ryans, Dunta Robinson, etc. that would all be unrestricted otherwise).
