Resign (These numbers are totally off the top of my head and indicate the per salary amount I'd pay. Don't ***** about it, I'm not a salary cap guy, just spit balling).
Banjo-Minimum (He's ERFA)
MD Jennings ($1 mil). To hopefully be the THIRD safety
Lattimore ($1 mil)
Shields - 6 mil
EDS - One year for what he gets now
Francois - 1 mil
Jones - similar deal as now
BJ Raji - On a far better deal than we first expected.
Pickett - like 2-3 mil. Shorter deal.
Newhouse-I'm guessing, hoping, Sherrod is our swing tackle next year
Finley - Time to move on
Neal - worth more to someone else
Quarless - We can keep but he seems pretty damned replaceable to me.
Starks - Bye
CJ Wilson - replaced by mid pick.
2014 Free Agency -
QB Matt Flynn
Some random TE.
Round 1 -
Kyle Van Noy OLB/DE/ILB BYU
This is too easy. I know this might get poo poo'd for the fact we have Perry and Clay but you can never have enough pass rushers. No reason we can't get all three on the field a lot and this is HUGE insurance for injuries. Clay and Perry are out right now.
Anyways. Instincts, athleticism, football IQ, intensity, pass rushing, play making ability. I think he could play inside a lot honestly. Not some stud in coverage but fast enough and would be a nasty blitzer from there.
Round 2 - Eric Ebron TE UNC
Supreme athlete at TE who is a good football player. What else is there to say? Great Finley replacement and probable upgrade
Round 3 - Traded For Jairus Byrd who is on the franchise tag (I Think he can be tagged again, if not pretend we do this tomorrow then). Signed to a deal like Goldson got.
Round 3 Comp - I doubt we get a 3rd for Jennings but I'm doing it anyways
WR Jared Abbrederis
Nothing to say. Everyone knows him. Makes sense all the way around.
Round 4 - Trey Millard FB
Round 5 - Dri Archer RB/WR/Slotback/RS/CB
If you don't know this cat, get your boner pants on and load up some YouTube video.
For starters, he's small, and he's also hurt right now.
BUT, he's waterbug quick and 4.2 fast.
Check out his Jr stats.
1500 yards. 16 TDs. NINE yards per carry.
Tack on 39 receptions.
Now get this. 36.5 yards per KICK RETURN.
Shotgun RB, 5th WR, gadget player, Sproles Jr, kick return extraordinaire.
End the madness of no reliable return man on kicks and give us a really good one who could be explosive on offense.
Round 6 Hakeem Smith S Louisville
Round 7 Jonotthan Harrison C Florida
Too lazy to type a depth chart right now.
