Picking up Vincent Jackson and Greg Olsen ties up a ton of money in WR and TE when you add in Gonzalez and Roddy White.

I actually don't think there will be a big splash signing next off season. The past three off seasons, we have dished out a lot of money for players because we have been desperate for starters. Even though it would be great to have Vincent Jackson and Greg Olsen, if Gonzalez returns for another season I don't think you can classify those positions as critical for free agent starters. Plus we need to have cap room available to resign DeCoud, Lofton, Biermann, HD, and Owens in 2012.

I think Dahl gets signed to multiple years instead of Blalock for one year (only based on the state of the franchise statement from Coach Smith this year)

Norwood will be looking for multiple years with as much guaranteed money as possible. He will only sign for one year if there are no offers for him from around the league. He'll get at least a two year offer from someone else based on speed alone, unless he has a bad year.

I can see Grimes signing for that amount if he is our nickel. If he is our starting CB across from Robinson, that seems like a very inexpensive signing.

Nicholas signing I agree with.

As for the draft, I like depth, but aside from Romeus rotating in at DE, the whole draft is depth. I'd rather see an impact offensive player drafted in the second (WR, OT, or RB). I do like a DE in the first to be groomed to back fill for Abraham after next year.

Thanks for the comments but if you look at the flow of money it is only 4 million higher with money added than money being subtracted. If you look at Dahl and Clabo 2.521 mill, Ojinnaka 1.176 mill and Romberg .900 miil would total the 7 mill it would take to add VJax contract if he meets all of the incentives. Now looking at the money made last year 4.5 mill Jenkins, Peterson's 3.5 mill, Peelle 2.287 mill, JA98's 0.7 mill and Davis 5 mill would easily cover for the Olsen's contract for the one year he Gonzo are on the roster together if Gonzo decides to play the life of his contract. If he doesn't we have actually saved money with the additions which s you mention will help us extend a lot of players contracts.

Norwood may want a long term deal but I can't see him a commanding that much on the open market with his fragile label and low production of late see Mike Bell who actually had decent numbers last year.

I would also like to add another incentive to allowing Clabo, Dahl and Snelling to walk is the possible comp picks in 2012. We know Clabo and Dahl may command decent coin and Snelling if he has another good year do like wise. Dare I say 3rd, 4th and maybe 6th comp picks for the 2012 draft. Might be a little be too foresight.

I dont think Vincent Jackson will come in and take over Roddy Whites number 1 role. I like the trade for Greg Olsen only if the rookie TE show little through out the year. On second thought I do not think we would pick up Vincent Jackson I see our WR core being very strong this year with a lot of depth, not really needing to add anything to the bunch. I like your draft maybe swapping the 2nd and 3rd rounders getting a OT in the 2nd and OLB in the 3rd.

My intentions was never or VJax to take over the number one role only as better option for the number two for Jenkins. I too like the core of our wr core but felt the need to address it in some fashion because of the overwhelming criticism of Jenkins who has top 5 production number for a number 2 in yds and rec.

As far as OT I really don't like draft a RT that high, if that is the case why not just sign Clabo to a long term deal at least you know what you have. Remember this name Marcus Gilbert he is a versatile OL who can play both OG/RT something our FO loves. Smart, high character guy playing in the toughest conference in a prostyle offense. No he doesn't have the household name you would like but isn't that the type of player TD loves to draft. Reminds me a lot of Michael Johnson, not flashy but knows how to play football and is in his 3rd year of starting.

Oh I was confused because on the depth chart you had listed you had Jackson as WR1, but I agree with the fact that Jenkins needs to be replaced if he does not somehow show some progress this year. And after hearing your reasoning for the pick I agree. I just think taking another LB that early may be a waste if Nicholas has a good year then our LB core will be great and I think we have pretty good depth at the position going into this season.

I don't know anything about Gilbert. I'll give you 2 other names to look out for. Derek Sherrod, Johnny Culbreath.

I simple pulled the list from Yahoo it has Jenkins as the one but we both know that is not the case. My reason for adding another LB is to add quality depth behind who ever starts. For example if Nicholas was to sub out or get injured we have `would have a quality LB play in his spot and not miss a beat.
