    You're right about Jones. The site I was looking at listed him as a DT.

    Soliai I've seen play a handful of times, including against us last season. He's huge and active, I like him.

    And for Olshanksy, you don't get rid of any of those guys. You play him exclusively at DT. Either to spell Kevin Williams when he needs to or opposite of him on 3rd downs.

    Anthony Adams is a bit light at 310, but he's also short at 6'0, so I think it balances out. Mind you Pat Williams was listed as 6'3" 317.

    He's no little princess.

    I hear ya about spelling K-dubb, but he have Guion, Ballard and Griff that can do that. In short, we have enough 3/5 techniques. We need a 0/1 technique. Without a cat like that the scheme just doesn't work, I don't care how many DB's we bring in.

    I'd like to see Mario Williams in purple and gold with JA ..... would be a hell of a defense.

    We don't need to and shouldn't be spending a bunch of money on FA. That is the very thing that got us into cap trouble in the last 2 years and got us to a 3-13 record.

    What we need to do is draft players, make good decisions and to quit burning draft picks by trading up by bundling picks to get marginal players.

    The team needs to get younger and it needs to have it's average contract dollars go down so they can build a more balanced roster.

    The team also needs to get faster across the board,especially on defense. They need faster LB's, they certainly need faster DB's and they could use more quickness in the depth on their DL.

    The PL needs to be faster and getting rid of Hutch, Herrera and Loadholt would be a good start. Loadholt is just not going to mesh with the rest of the line, especially if they draft Kalil like it appears they are nearly guaranteed to and they need more speed in the WR group. Although catching the ball would also seem to be a desirable trait and I have heard that is possible these days.

    we make one huge signing in Carl Nicks. Move Hutch to RG, tell him 2 take a pay cut.

    Kalil Nicks Sully Hutch Loadholt

    Damn thats a beauty o-Line.

    We need Corners. i say sign Brandon Carr, Chris Johnson(Raiders). DT Solai would be an upgrade from Remi Ayodele.

    thats it to be honest.. a few more filler FAs and we are actually competing!

    Hutch and Herrera are gone, so ideally we would sign Carl Nicks (Puke at the thought of a saint, but w/e) and Kalil and have a Kalil Nicks Sully Johnson Loadholt O-line.

    If we could sign a WR like Garcon and then one of the CBs, I think it will be an extremely successful FA. Even if we just got one of Nicks, Vincent, or Carr/Finnegan it would be a good FA.

    I think you may be on to something here, if not Nicks, then Grubbs. That would seem to be a good plan for the OL anyway.

    An OL would be good to take. As also someone like Jones could help out the DEs with the Vikes.

    A guard is not where I see us spending money as we at least have some guys on the team to fill the spot in Charlie Johnson {as I too believe we draft Kalil} Joe Berger and Brandon Fusco.

    Meanwhile at CB we have Winfield better suited for limited nickel duties and the unknown to mediocre guys on our roster to fill the starters role.

    At WR we'd currently have Stephen Burton to fill out a three WR set with Harvin and Jenkins.

    IMO these need veteran help instead of breaking the bank for Nicks or Grubbs at guard.
