    Remember this is a dream! Smartasses need not apply!

    Free Agents:
    Justin Smith DE
    Asante Samuel CB
    Randy Moss WR
    ;D or Bernard Berrian WR or Jerry Porter WR or Larry Fitzgerald WR
    Todd Collins QB (backup)
    Alan Faneca OL

    Trades:
    Larry Fitzgerald WR
    Donovan McNabb QB

    Draft:
    Calais Campbell DE
    OL for depth
    LB for depth
    Interesting to look back at this.

    All I can hope for now is a stud OT in the 2nd.
    Thanks for bumping this, because now I can go back and pat myself on the back:

    I did a real quick estimate, and I think it would be possible to sign all of these guys and fit them under the cap this year.
    Here's how (player - years - total value - signing bonus - cap hit (year 1, year 2, etc.)):

    Justin Smith -5 years -$40 million -$20 million bonus -ACTUAL: 6 years -$45 million ($7.5 million/year) -$20 million bonus
    Asante Samuel - 5 years - $50 million $20 million bonus - ACTUAL: 6 years - $57 million ($9.5 million/year)
    Randy Moss - 4 years - $50 million - $20 million bonus - ACTUAL: 3 years - $27 million - well, Patriots discount
    Alan Faneca - 5 years - $40 million - $20 million bonus - ACTUAL: 5 years - $40 million - $21 million bonus
    Todd Collins - 3 years - $10 million - $3 million bonus - ACTUAL: 3 years - $9 million - $3 million bonus
    Larry Fitzgerald - 5 years - $50 million - $20 million bonus - ACTUAL: 4 years - $40 million ($10 million/year)
    Anybody have a cookie?

    Anyways, we really could have afforded to sign all of these guys.
    Shows you how you can work the cap.
    I'm pretty happy with our offseason though.

    A good OT or C in the draft would be a great finish.
    Heck any good players in the draft would be nice.
    Wow that was pretty good
    Thanks.
    I have a fragile ego, and such things keep me going in this unstable world.


    That and beer.

    I didn't know where to put this so I picked this thread. I was a huge supporter of bringing in another CB last season. In fact Asante Samuel was my main target. It is almost ironic that he pretty much ended our season. Maybe people will listen to me this offseason about needing a great CB opposite Winfield. I know Zeus feels we don't need an upgrade.

    Looks like the things you wanted after last year are pretty much the things you are going to want after this year.
