So are we in good position to bring in free agents?

Next year, will we have enough money to bring in a couple quality free agents as we did with Turner? How is our cap compared to other teams? Enough to bring in a GREAT player such as Haynesworth?

what are the cap implications for paying so much for Ryan and Vick? What percentage of our cap do they take up? (also, from what peopel are saying it's unlikely we can trade vick, correct? if we did, what could we get for him?)

thanks

Yeah it will be interesting to see how Dimitroff approaches the FA market this offseason. We HAD to have a guy like Turner last year, but this year our needs are less pressing. So I wonder if he will be active or wait until the draft. Maybe it depends on who is available, and how much.

One thing for sure is he is already putting a plan into place right now. I hope that crystal ball of his keeps on shining.

I wouldn't mind bringing in Hayneworth but TD says this team will mostly be built through the draft and I believe him. We went and got Turner last year because we had a ton of holes to fill. I wouldn't mind Aso either. I think he definitely wants out of Oakland.

actually we got turner because he was the perfect fit for the offense we wanted to run, power back with speed, runs behind his pads. he was the perfect fit, if he was say AP as a freeagent i doubt we would have filled that need of running back through free agency.

That was pre-game, and I didn't even know they were filming me. I was probably staring at the scoreboard (showing TB/Detroit game that week) When I saw myself on Outside the Lines I was like :o

No, that is not correct. Vick's salary does not affect our cap, but his signing bonus is still coming off our books. It isn't as much as his salary, so it isn't hurting us much. But, it is there.

You truly are the voice of reason :lol:

Wouldn't be easy but if we we're to somehow snag Suggs. My goodness what a player.

So, where would he play? He's not a LB in our scheme. The closest position we have for him is RDE, which Abe has covered. We could play him at LDE, but could he handle it? He's a heck of a pass rusher, but in our scheme, he'd be a situational player. You simply do not give a player as much as he's gonna get to be a situational player.
