it would be a dream to get briggs. samuels, who played well today against the colts, would a dream also.

the guy i target first on that list is eric steinbach. solid player, still young, and could arguably beat out our starters at every position on the line. nomatter what we decide to do at qb or runningback, our offensive line is still shaky and needs to be focused on first IMO.

after that i focus defense. samual & clement being major targets, followed by linebackers (briggs & diggs), and then the d-linemen (redding & allen). i know it's possible we wont land any big name, but i'd really throw buckets of money at steinbach and try to pull in one of the defensive players i mentioned afterwards.

Some amazing defensive players coming out this year. Expect most of them to be resigned, but if we could lure one of those LBs away...

I agree, if we can get one of the top LBs or CBs, things will be looking up for sure.

I don't think we'll land Samuels and Clemens after the kind of bidding war we'll see for them both.

Briggs will get resigned by the bears. I think we'd have a good shot at Diggs and Adalius Thomas.

Everyone can forget about Turner he's a restricted free agent and i am sure San Diego will tender him high. I'd rather draft one honestly.

I don't see why we'd need another widereceiver.

I do hope we make a good run at Steinbach though and perhaps Jordan Black. No thanks to Leonard Davis. REALLY need to further address the line this offseason. This should be the front office's prioirity.

Another tight end? See wide receiver.

I'd be happy if we landed Cory Redding or Terdell Sands. I really liked what Philly was trying this year in rotating an entire dline in and out.

Micheal Lewis i'd be good with coming here...and i didn't know Nick Harper would be avilable... wouldn't mind landing him either. Second priority should be shoring up the secondary.

Schaub baby!:whoohoo:

Why exactly? I just don't see the attraction to picking up people like Turner or Schaub who will have huge tenders attached to them. We'd probably have to give up at leaast a 1st, maybe a 1st and 3rd for Shaub. The new Falcons regime wants 1 year to evaluate Vick, so expect them to keep a guy in the on deck circle if Vick doesn't pan out.

crazy thought, but what about trading back in to the first a couple of times to acquire a couple of seconds or thirds and then go after Schaub and still have a few seconds or thirds. to still draft with. I know this sounds a lot like Madden, but what are the chances.

I'm going to kinda repeat what I've said in a couple other threads as far as the FAs I think we should target:

- Lance Briggs, LB CHI - if he isn't re-signed by da Bears he would be a perfect compliment to Ryans on the strong side and would be a huge upgrade over Orr. I also think he will be more financially friendly to sign than Adalius Thomas.

- Ken Hamlin, FS SEA - I'm pretty sure he will be re-signed by Seattle, but if he's not we should pursue him very strongly. A player of his caliber would greatly strengthen our currently weak secondary, and since he is fairly young would be an important piece of our defense for years. Another option here might be Deon Grant, JAK, who would still be an upgrade over Brown.

- Cory Redding, DT DET - had a very productive year at the tackle spot, could work well in a rotation with TJ and Maddox. Might not break the bank if he's looking to play closer to home and escape Detroit. A DE like Justin Smith might also be a nice addition, which would require Weaver to probably move inside.

- Decent free agents on the offensive side of the ball are looking pretty sparse, although help on the offensive line is always in order. I wouldn't spend too much on a FA OT, however since the crop of OTs set to enter next years draft looks to be very deep.

Just an fyi- some of you might want to consider cap space and the number of guys under contract for '07 before getting all lollipop eyed.

I'm not so naive as to think that all the FAs I listed as targets would all be able to be signed given our salary cap situation. However, I believe that signing just one of the players I mentioned would strengthen our defense and give us more flexibility in the draft. I do not believe the Texans have a shot at either Clements or Samuel because of their price alone, but a LB or FS would be easier to fit under the cap.

Personally I'd like us to sit back the first week of FA and let the Washington's of the world overpay for talent. Then we can sign 2-3 guys that slide through the cracks. That gives us more flexibility come draft day.

I think the best pick up would be Alex Gibbs - Oline coach, that way no matter who else we Draft/FA/Trade for we get the coaching the line needs.

After Samuels has played in this postseason, you can forget about him period.

Agreed. Gonna cost you a couple of picks for these guys. And they are going to want to get paid well. The board will be loaded with high end guys which fill needs on this club in the '08 draft. Some of those wounds have been festering since the first expantion draft. We need to collect picks for next year. Not give picks away. This is Tony Hollings stuff. I'll pass.

Nate Clements, UFA, Buffalo Bills - Should be #1 on everyone's wishlist. This guy is a hammer.

We have A.J and Moulds, at reciever both very good, we need to find a reliable 3rd reciever, WHY did we let Gaffney go, he made some good plays for the pats, he was a guy we shoulda kept IMO. We also need one more dominating Dl guy, to go along with williams. D.F would be a good pick up, though i dont see us geeting him because he'll cost so much.

I may have went a little crazy on the highlighting, put some of my top players who I think we really should consider are:

1. Terdell Sands, Oakland
2. Eric Steinback, Cincinnati
3. Justin Smith, Cincinnati
4. Na'ai Diggs, Carolina
