Default THE FA acquisition we need to make?

So, I was going down a list of available free agents this year, looking at certain teams that I felt had good Olines, and writing down the Olinemen who were starters for those teams, that would be FAs this year. (assuming that if they are starting, they are worth looking at)

Anyway.. I came across one guy who I think may be the ULTIMATE pickup for us.. like.. priority numero uno. Unfortunatly(or fortunatly) he is young, and talented, and convincing him to leave his team may be difficult.. seeing as this is his first FA period since he was drafted.

ANYWAY.. From the denver broncos.. Right Guard (and also CENTER) Ben Hamilton. Talk about a perfect fit.. if he is a capable center, he could replace Mckinney.. and he has spent the last 4 years of his pro career in a zone blocking scheme. he is small for our line at 283 pounds, but I dont really think that matters.

there is his bio.

here is the other list of guys. I looked at the Broncos, Chiefs, Ravens, Panthers, Steelers and Bills.

Tutan Reyes OG, 27yo, Panthers - RFA

Mike Pucilo C, 25yo, Bills(2nd string) - RFA

Bennie Anderson OG, 27yo, Ravens - FA

Casey Rabach C/OG, 27yo, Ravens - FA

Oliver Ross RT, 30yo, Steelers - FA

***Ben Hamilton LG/C, ?yo drafted 2001, Broncos - FA

Carlisle Cooper OG, ?yo drafted 2000, Broncos(2nd string) - FA

Jonathen Ingram C, 24yo, Chiefs - ERFA



I listed centers that were second string as well.. since a C is probably our biggest need on the Oline. Also listed Cooper from the Broncos cause the Broncs run the best Zone Blocking scheme and he may be worth getting despite being a backup.

anywho.. you may want to watch Hamilton this saturday when he plays agains the Colts. he is #50.
