I wasn't thinking of adding a JJo type player, more like a Joe Mays to plug holes. If you can find a serviceable player to keep you from over drafting a need position that would be ideal. I think the cap situation for most intelligent teams should improve over the next few years as the rookie pay scale is under control now. Theoretically, this should allow more money in the future to fill needs through FA.
And I agree with you as well, we have to be better at drafting. We're not bad but we could be quite a bit better
