Cody Johnson isn't nearly a good enough blocker to fit in with the scheme ATL runs imho.

I don't get why we would sign Mcnabb. I don't see him as an upgrade over Redman. In addition, he isn't a good lockerroom guy as a backup.

I'm not sure I trust Hawley yet.

Other than that it looks really good for a mock offseason so early in the year.

Cody Johnson in the 7th is not a high risk.

Former Pro Bowl QB vs a career backup? You would be probably the only person in the world who would ever make a statement like this? If Ryan "heaven forbid" ever have to miss any games you think Redman stands a better chance in winning a game than McNabb?

Not saying he is the next heir apparent, but can't really rely on McClure either plus would you overpay for 35 yo with bad wheels? Unless McClure is willing to play for a one year contact on the low can't see it going any other way.

I think there will be better lead blocker types than a RB/FB tweener I guess is my point.

I'm saying I'd rather have a guy like Redman who knows his job, excels at his job, is good in the locker room, etc.... vs a guy who is a locker room issue and wants to be a starter. Mcnabb offers nothing as a backup other than a decent QB if injured. At this point in Mcnabb's career he isn't much better than Redman talent wise either. Redman will help Ryan get to the next level Mcnabb won't. Until Mcnabb proves he can be useful as a backup I wouldn't want him near any of my favorite teams.

agreed but it might be nice if we pick up another vet to give some competition. I don't like the idea of handing him a job he hasn't deserved.

Suggestions? There are no decent OC at good value, Hawley may not win any game but certainly won't lose any either. While replacing McClure he was not our reason our line looked so bad. Can't you make the same argument argument for Hawley vs a vet OC as you have for Redman vs McNabb?

Nick Hardwick from San Diego is a guy that sticks out to me.

no because that vet would compete with Hawley. No vet we bring in will compete with Ryan. Any QB we bring in is a strict backup and I don't think Mcnabb has any interest in that role. He is already making a stink about being benched for Ponder and hasn't helped the guy at all.

McNabb knows his time for being a marque player in this league is over, he is now hunting a ring. There is no team in the league that he can start for he has no hope in being a starting qb.

He is making a stink about being benched to a rookie not another Pro Bowl QB. Nick Hardwick is still in his prime, if and that is a big "if" the Chargers let him walk it will cost us. Why invest so much in a center when we have one probably a year or two away?

I just can't see how we can resign all of those players, plus bring in McNabb and Gaither - I just don't think we have the cap room.

I honestly think this might be Abes' last year with the team. I also think we'll look at bringing in a vet TE if TG retires - someone like Greg Olsen or Jermichael Finley.

The only way mcclure leaves is if he retires, and also, who is julius jones?

no, no he doesn't. There is absolutely no evidence to support that. He has said time and again he thinks he deserves to be a starter. I agree with you but I think he would rather go compete for a job elsewhere than be a strict backup.

I've actually been suspecting, ever since wilson was put on the PS, that we were going to sign redman to another 2yr contract.Then wilson can spend the 2012 and 2013 seasons on the practice squad and take over when redman's contract runs out, at which time redman retires. Redman is only making 2.55 mil right now and might be able to be signed for even cheaper. He fits the scheme perfectly and even though he won't get better, he is still good enough, for now.

Why would you say that? And corrected!

Mclure is one of those cornerstones of the team as a 13 year veteran. I just don't see this coaching staff choosing not to resign him. He's alot like tony in that way. They won't make the same mistake that Chicago did of letting their center retire on another team.

Why take a safety in the 3rd if Sanders is going to start? Why not take a RB there then take a safety in the 5th? Just a thought.

@Rai - I was thinking about a corner in the 3rd as well but if we bring Hayden back, then there would be no need. The fans may not like Owens, but Owens, Franks, and Walls are our CBs depth. Unless a stud just falls to the third.

Is there a rb in the 3rd that is going to start over Turner or Rogers? We need a free safety far worst than a rb, DeCoud has been horrible in coverage the last 2 years.

I'm not saying a RB in the third should start over Turner or Quizz but why take a safety when you have Sanders starting on the depth chart? A backup RB will get more opportunities to impact a game than a back up safety.

If you could get either Chris Polk or Trenton Robinson in the third, I'd rather take Polk because he will play more than Robinson unless Sanders is injured. That's all I'm saying. Plus, Turner is going to be 30, RB is going to be a more pressing need than a back up safety.

The reason I have Sanders start his because he would be a stop gap much like Coleman was for Moore, this team is good enough that there is no reason to rush a rookie on the field until knows the scheme. Until the first couple of years of the MS & TD regime, we have always brought on our rookie slowly.

As far as RB I don't get the hold need for this early in the game, Turner is having a great year even with a slow start. He is on pace for 1400+ yds this year and we are already looking for his replacement, he is under contract until 2014 at a reason price. We can draft a RB in the first of 2013 and still be in great shape. Like Kennesaw said neither of the rb you mention will be their in the 3rd. Not to mention that if RB was that great of a need we can always re-sign Snelling who has proven more than capable of replace Turner.

If you ever question why I would rather replace DeCoud than Turner re-watch the Bucs game this year, Eagles game last year and you would see why.

No way Polk makes it to the 3rd imho. He is one of the top rated RB's and I believe will be one of the top 3 RB's taken.

To the poster's point we do need a long term replacement for Turner and it sure isn't Rodgers.

He could fall to the 3rd. RBs aren't as valued anymore and if a guy like Ingram can fall out of the 1st round as a Heisman winner (yea the Saints took him in the first but had to trade up to do it. Otherwise, Ingram is a 2nd rounder). Right now the only lock for the first rounder is Richardson. But if not Polk, I'd take James.

I'm not suggesting replacing Turner over replacing DeCoud. I was saying if you were going to get a back up safety then take one later and get a potential #1 RB. But using Sanders as a stop gap like Coleman makes it make more sense for me.
