OK, they were prepped to go pretty high on Rice. Doesn't look like there is another cat out there that would demand that much money when it comes to WR.
Having said that, were do they spend that money they were going to spend on Rice?
a. DT - Haloti Ngata, Aubrayo Franklin, Brandon Mebane?
I wouldn't mind anyone of them. Mebane was more of a 0/1 tech and was forced to learn the 3/5 tech last year. Might be a good fit when it comes to the rotation we might see on the roster.
b. LB - Not sure but my guess is they will spend a bunch getting Chad done. That won't leave much for FA. Probably gonna see Erin get the chance with a low level FA brought in to provide insurance/depth.
Maybe a Kamerion Wimbley (was he franchised), Keith Bulluck, maybe Ben will opt for a low ball contract.
c. S - They already tested the marked on Weddle. Not much left out there. Huff, Harper.
d. WR - Sure have alot of "Big" bodies on the roster. Are they going to go with a couple of those or will they opt to bring in a Malcom Floyd, Naanee? Braylon is standing out there left at the alter.
So far, can't find anything on the wire that shows they are interested in anyone but a RB who failed a physical.
