DirtyBirdDynasty Posted July 31, 2011 Share Posted July 31, 2011 With Blalock just resigned TD has done an outstanding job in FA so far. There are a few moves left to be made as we head into the season.1. Resign Snelling. We hope Rodgers can provide a receiving/3rd down back but he's a 5th round rookie with no NFL experience. Snelling has proven a reliable receiver and effective runner. We would be wise to limit Turners regular season carries or his career will be over soon. Perhaps we offer Snelling a 1 year deTal to earn himself a starting gig on the open market next year. There really aren't many other options available for a receiving back on the market.2. Add a veteran nickel CB. Owens wasn't ready in the playoff loss. He will compete with Franks but we should add a vet CB with a small contract to add to the competition. The pass rush is improved but we need to be able to matchup with 3 WR sets.3. DE/TE? DE was our #1 need and it has been addressed but we might want to consider adding another as Sidbury and Matthews are unproven. Some may see this as overkill but we lost in the playoffs to the Superbowl champs because we couldn't get to the QB with a 4 man rush or cover when we blitzed. Jacob Ford, Mark Anderson and Andre Carter are all intriguing options. TE is interesting because its more of a luxury but Peele isnt a receiving threat. We would be wise to bring in a talented young TE to learn from Gonzo while hes here but may not have cap room.4. Depth-LT, S. Baker has missed time with injuries and we would be wise to have a vet OT who could step in if needed. Theres not much proven depth at safety either Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
