Matt Schaub was tendered with a first round pick. We traded 2 seconds to get him & signed him to a starter's contract.

I also believe Antonio Smith was one of the top rated DEs at the time & we paid him a pretty penny as well.

Just saying.
Weaver was a Casserly bust and one of the big reasons that BoB is overly cautious about spending $$$$ in FA. (Thanks Charlie/Weaver)

Schaub was a trade aquisition not a FA.

A.Smith was a decent signing but not on the level of star power/higher coveted position CB vs DE than A.Smith was at the time.
