    So a lot of the big names in FA have either been re-signed or have been franchised. The way I see it, here is what is left by position.

    OT
    Tyson Clabo, 27 - Falcons (RFA)

    OG
    Harvey Dahl, 28 - Falcons (RFA)

    OC
    Jason Brown, 26 - Ravens

    OLB
    Julius Peppers, 29 - Panthers (Franchised) (3-4)
    Terrell Suggs, 26 - Ravens (Franchised) (3-4)

    MLB
    Karlos Dansby, 27 - Cardinals (Franchised)
    Jonathan Vilma, 27 - Saints
    Bart Scott, 29 - Ravens
    Channing Crowder, 25 - Dolphins

    DE
    Chris Canty, 26 - Cowboys (3-4)

    So, there doesnt seem to be much left to be picked up without sending off draft picks (which I am against). I dont think Peppers is worth sending draft picks to Carolina, and the same for Suggs.

    I think our best bet would be to go after either Scott or Vilma depending if we are going to a 3-4 or 4-3 defense, respectively. We can pick up a good OLB in the first (Curry) or second rounds (Clay Matthews, Connor Barwin, Brian Cushing, Clint Sintim).

    I wouldnt mind seeing Chris Canty here too regardless of which system we use. If we stay 4-3 I think he will boost our DL run defense. I have questions about his ability to do a speed rush, but worst case scenario, he can always be subbed out for a speedier DE (Babin or Draft) on obvious passing downs.

    On offense I would love to see us grab Jason Brown. He is a great, young center. Draft an OT in either round 1 or 2, and have Niswanger and McIntosh battle over the RG spot.

    If we grab Brown, Canty, and a MLB here is what we will probably look like:

    OL
    Albert - Waters - Brown - Niswanger/McIntosh - Draft

    DL
    Canty - Dorsey - Tank - Hali or

    Canty - Tank? - Dorsey/Mcbride

    LB
    DJ - Vilma/Scott - Draft or
    DJ - Vilma/Scott - Draft (Curry) - Draft (Sintim, Barwin, Cushing, etc)

    Unfortunately I think if we go to 3-4 full time, we will still have a few holes on D. But 4-3 doesnt look bad.

    It would be nice to go into the draft with the only big needs being an OLB, OT and speed DE to develop. We could use a 3rd or 4th for a G to develop to replace Waters in a couple years.

    If anyone knows of any other top free agents we should look at, Im all ears.

    Nice post Jap1. Laying it out like you did, I would be all about Canty/Peppers or Vilma/Peppers. The vet leadership we could get out of Peppers would be invaluable. I wonder if KC is one of the 4 teams he would agree to be traded to? Kinda doubt it..

    My bad. He's franchised. I think we'd need 2 1st rounders to get him. No chance.

    The Raiders cut Gibril Wilson today, who was kind of a cap casualty after tying up so much money with Asomugha. He's one of the better safeties in the league and only 27.. obviously safety isn't the #1 priority, but he would be a really nice pick up because he's a lot better than Pollard or Page.

    It would be nice to have him stick it to the Raiders and Al Davis in a Chiefs uniform.

    He could be a nice upgrade to the SS spot (currently Pollard) depending on how much he would be asking. If we can get him cheap, I would love that pickup.

    But I wouldnt want to spend big bucks on him because I think Pollard isnt too bad. He would look a lot better playing SS if we were not in a Cover 2, where he would be playing closer to the line and have less deep coverage responsibilities.

    I would really like to get Canty and either Crowder, Scott or Vilma. Any of these guys would improve our Defense greatly!!
