    Trade Earl to Pats for a 6th

    Extend Brandon Marshall

    FA

    Lamarr Houston, DE
    Pat Sims, NT
    Tony Scheffler, TE
    Jairus Byrd, FS
    John Kuhn, FB
    Jeremy Mincey, DE

    Correy Wootton, DE
    DJ Williams, LB
    Major Wright, S
    Charles Tillman, CB
    Nate Collins, DT
    Eben Britton, OT

    Draft
    Trade our 1st to Browns for their 1st, 3rd, 4th, and their 5th round picks- Browns use their extra picks jumps in front of PIT for one of top WR in this draft to pair up with Gordon and their new QB.

    RD1- Calvin Pryor, S, Louisville
    RD2- Kareem Martin, DE, North Carolina
    RD3- Martavis Bryant, WR, Clemson
    RD3- Keith McGill, CB, Utah
    RD4- C.J. Fiedorowicz, TE, Iowa
    RD4- Justin Ellis, NT, Louisiana Tech
    RD5- Aaron Murray, QB, Georgia
    RD6- Dri Archer, RB/WR, Kent State
    RD6- Tom Hornsey, P, Memphis
    RD6- Gabe Ikard, OC, Oklahoma


    Roster:

    QB- Cutler, Palmer, Murray
    RB- Forte, Kuhn, Ford, Archer
    FB- Fiammetta, Kuhn
    WR- Marshall, Jeffery, Wilson, Weems, Bryant, Archer
    TE- Bennett, Scheffler, Fiedorowicz
    LT- Bushrod, Mills
    LG- Slauson, Brown
    C- Garza, Ikard
    RG- Long, Brown
    RT- Britton, Mills

    LE- Wootton, Mincey, Bass
    DT- Paea, Melton, Collins
    NT- Sims, Ellis
    RE- Houston, Martin
    SLB- Connor, Shea
    MLB- Williams, Bostic
    WLB- Briggs, Greene
    CB- Jennings, McGill
    FS- Byrd, Conte
    SS- Pryor, Wright, Steltz
    CB- Tillman, Bowman
    NB- Frey

    K- Gould
    P- Hornsey
    LS-Mannely
    KR- Archer, Weems, Bryant
    PR- Archer, Bryant

    Two parts to talk about the contracts and picks, while given '13 PFF numbers.

    Cut Peppers and Bush as post June 1 cuts. E. Bennett (trade), and cut of Podlesh to save $21M and making north of $27M is available for FA. There are a few other minor moves also, like trying to move Washington and Franklin to PS.

    Lance Briggs takes a $2M pay cut- Briggs will not like this, but with the amount of money FA LB have been getting, we could easily cut him and sign Spikes

    Extend Brandon Marshall- 5 yrs/ $52M $8M SB '14 CH $8.5M- Marshall has been one of our best players since we traded for him, so this is well deserved. Similar to the M. Wallace deal.

    Convert $12M of Cuttys salary this year into a signing bonus- This pays for the draft class, with money left over, without hurting us long term.

    FA- $35M available

    Lamarr Houston, DE (+11.4)- 6 yrs/$36M, $8M of it as a SB, years 1-3 guaranteed, $4M '14 CH- Houston fits what Tucker likes at DE: big and a stout run defender. He also a very good pass rusher, led the NFL with 41 hurries in the regular season.

    Pat Sims, NT-(+14.7)- 3yrs $9.5 M, $2M coming as a SB, $2.5M '14 CH- Sims is a bigger NT, who is still younger and should come fairly cheap.

    Tony Scheffler, TE-1 yr/$950k- A cheap backup that has a connection with Jay.

    Jairus Byrd, FS-(+9.9)-5 yrs $38M, $10M of it is a SB, Years 1-3 are guaranteed, '14 CH $6.5M- A playmaking safety that will go a long way in shoring up one of our weakest positions last year. Byrd fits perfectly for what Tucker wants from his FS.

    John Kuhn, FB-(+9.6)-2 yr/$2.3M, $1.2M '14 CH- Takes Bushs role as backup RB and power back. Plus, he can fill in at FB if needed. Not to mention, he's solid in ST and pass protection.

    Dan Connor, LB-(+1.3)- 1yr $1M- Connor has always dealt with injuries but when he is healthy, he is good. Connor will compete with Bostic for the traditional SLB role, while Shea will take LEO. Plus, he can backup all three LB positions.

    Jeremy Mincey, DE-(+3.1)- 2 yrs $3.5M, $1.5M '14 CH- Mincey has ties with Tucker and his defense. He would be the first DE off the bench.

    Henry Melton, DT-(-6.4)-1 yr/ $3M- Melton wasn't playing well before going on IR, but he's one year removed for playing at elite status, so he's worth the gamble. If Melton can regain form, that's a big if, he would fight Paea for the starting UT spot. If not, he becomes a pass rush rotational player.

    Zach Bowman, CB-(-3.2)-1 yr/$1M- Had solid year. Competes for a starting spot and can play ST.

    Jordan Palmer, QB- 1yr/ $950k- A cheap scheme fit backup. A have no problem bring McCown back, but it would have to be something like a 2 yrs $3M deal. Since I have us drafting a young backup, I when the cheaper route.

    Patrick Mannelly, LS-2 yr/ $2M- Mannelly is old, but there's isn't many option. I wish Garza could LS, to open a roster spot.

    Roberto Garza, C-(+7.7)-2 yrs/ $3M, $1M '14 CH- Had a good year. Serves as a bridge.

    Craig Steltz, S-(-5.7)-1 yr/ $850k- Mostly a ST signing, but helps with depth.

    Correy Wootton, DE-(-5.4)- 4 yrs/ $16M, $5M of that is a SB '14 CH $3.5M- Wootton had a up and down season. He fits what Tucker likes and asks from his DE.

    DJ Williams, LB-(-3.1)- 1yr $1.25M- DJ was solid when he was healthy and the price is right. This gives us another year to develop Bostic and see if he can be the answer as a long term MLB.

    Eben Britton, OT-(+4.1)- 3 yrs $5.25M, $1.5M of that SB, $1.5 '14 CH- Britton was very good in limited reps. He will compete for the starting RT spot.

    Charles Tillman, CB-(-6.5)-2 yrs $4.5M, $1.85M '14 CH- Tillman won't get any big offers in FA. TB may offer him a contract, but I think he will choose to stay in CHI. Many have written Trill off, but personally I think he offers a lot if he can stay healthy.

    Major Wright, S-(-27.4)- 1 yr $950k- Even though he had a horrible year, Wright is still young, so maybe he can turn things around. Plus, gives some cheap depth and a guy to compete with a rookie.

    Nate Collins, DT-(+.3)- 1 yr $950k- A cheap and young depth at DT. Collins has done well when he gets the reps and healthy. Collins is valued since he can take reps at both UT and NT.

    Draft

    Calvin Pryor, S, Louisville- Pryor is a perfect fit for SS in Tuckers defense. His ability to play in box, while still being athletic enough to drop in coverage is a huge appeal. This gives a potentially a dynamic duo at Safety.

    Kareem Martin, DE, North Carolina- With the addition of Martin, we would have a very deep DL. Martin would split reps with Shea and Bass on passing downs.

    Martavis Bryant, WR, Clemson- Bryant doesn't get talked about much, probably because it's a deep WR class, but he would be a steal in round 3; he reminds me a bit of Stephen Hill. A 6'5 WR with 4.3 speed will make a hell of a deep threat.

    Keith McGill, CB, Utah- I don't like having rookie CB starting, since they usually struggle early in their careers, so McGill would likely be a ST his first year. Tucker played a lot of press man with the Jags, so McGill will fit in that mold.

    C.J. Fiedorowicz, TE, Iowa- A underrated TE, who does everything well. We need to have some depth behind BU, in case of a injury.

    Justin Ellis, NT, Louisiana Tech- As stated before, Tucker likes larger DT, so he can run a 1-Gap and free up the LBs. Ellis fits that mold, but he shown flashes of being a good pass rusher.

    Aaron Murray, QB, Georgia-Many won't like taking a QB after signing Jay long term, but it plays to the strength of this class. Plus, Palmer is not a long term answer at backup QB. Not to mention, Murray fits Trestman system like a glove.

    Dri Archer, RB/WR, Kent State-I need a PR and Archer is a popular pick, for good reason. Trestman could do some special things with a player with speed like Archer. Plus, Forte had something like 360 touches last season, which should be cut back some.

    Tom Hornsey, P, Memphis- Many won't like taking a punter with a 6th when we could get one as a UDFA, but I personally don't mind. Punter was a position of weakness at times last season, so we get one of the better punters. Plus, it's not often that you get a day 1 starter in the 6th round.

    Gabe Ikard, OC, Oklahoma- Gives us a young center to groom. Many posters have wanted us to bring in a young center to groom for multiple off seasons

    Might be the two best entries so far overall.

    Going to have to really think about this ...

    There's still time. Yours looks great too. I like the Martavis Bryant addition. My defense will probably be what gets me the win if I do.


    But if it comes down to next year, Ill be picketing outside of Halas Hall for a new deal, a new contract, because Im not going anyplace.

    That is some great work bw; you probably would have beaten me. I'm going with GB though. The Jabaal Sheard trade might be my favorite move I've seen in any offseason so far.

    Thanks, man

    I thought about doing it in one of the main thread mocks but held off once I heard we were doing this. It is something I would absolutely love for Phil to do.

    Not a fan of either drafts, but both teams are well constructed. GB wins by a decent margin, but only because Bran's seems a bit improbable.

    So the cap could be as high as 135 million? That's much more than we originally thought.

    I still thought both were good. BW was just a bit too far fetched.

    Man, Georgia's running away with this one...really thought Bran did a nice job though. Just a tough match up.
