Titans way over cap for 2006, Kyle Vaden Bosch is a UFA. Also Edge (Edgerrin James) is a UFA as is Reggie Wayne WR Colts...I think is worth thinking about

I wouldnt take any of those guys.

If you are going to look at RB, look for shaun alexander. Wr look to Charles Rogers. OL look to LeCharles Bently, LG from Seatle.

I think Bently is from New Orleans, Hutchinson is the Seattle LG, also a good choice, by the way. I think Wayne will be very expensive and might choose less money to remain in Indy with Manning and Harisson. Picking anyone from Idy's offesnse will probably be a mistake because we will pay for thier production while in INdy, but wont get it here because we dont have their offense. I like the idea of Charles Rogers, if he gets cleaned up. He has only played something like 12 career games, so when the Lions clean house he is likley to go and would be cheap. Imagine having the #2 and #3 picks from 2002 playing WR... also taking pressure off Rogers by having him as # 2 might help...

bentley is the center for new orleans, steve hutchinson is the G from seattle. i wouldnt mind giving vanden bosch a chance if we switch to a 4-3, if nothing else but to get someone experienced at DE & cheap for a year during the transition. he was injured and less than productive in arizona, but the way he's played this year in tennessee will garner him a few looks.

how are the titans still over the cap? i thought the last two years they cut or traded everyone to fix that (or are they still paying owed money for those guys?). they've got mcnair & bullocks left ... who else on that team is making more than the minimum??

McNair's number for next year is 27 million. Hopkins and Benji Olson also have figures in the 8-10 million range - I can't recall the exact number...I posted all this somehwhere else a few days ago but can't remember where - but anyway those three are the main reason. I doubt McNair is restructured again so unless he is willing to take a big pay cut, he will probably be released or retire.

I think Mcnair is done. Damn good QB but so banged up and injured the last few seasons that it's not even fun anymore. He might take one more season with the Titans, but I doubt it.

yeah he is due a 50 million bonus. That bonus was a joke when the contract was signed. From the beginning this contract was one designed to allow both McNair and the titans to analyze the situation before moving foward.

BTW, Mort said something interesting the other day in that many of the contracts, especially those @ QB are structured where if somebody looks at the first three years the money is the same, but the window dressing around them varies greatly.

I'd rather see them sign Hutchinson or Bentley. Call me crazy, but I am of the belief that if we really focus on the offensive line, the players we have will perform at a much higher level. There's nothing wrong with Gaffney at #2. Heck, prior to last year, the Eagles would have wished they had Gaff at #1

Charles Rogers has produced less on field and has more baggage then a Greyhound Bus, Shaun Alexander will be resigned by Seattle they can't afford to let him go. Edge on other hand wants more than Colts can/will pay with BIG checks for Peyton and Marvin.

I don't know if Shaun Alexander wants to come back to Seattle. He has a clause in his contract which says that they aren't allowed to franchise him any more. I wouldn't be surprised if he was on a different team next year. Maybe to one of the teams that wants Bush but can't get him.

I am sure that Edge and Alexander will remain with their current teams, however that will likely mean that both teams will have to release some of their current people (i.e. Reggie Wayne and Steve Hutchinson).

Reggie Wayne intrests me. We need a solid #2, and he would command some attention away from AJ. Youll have to pay #1 type money though im afraid. He would be a perfect fit though.

Id rather see us make a play for Hutchinson then Bentley since center is the least important position on the line...though at this point any help would be welcomed.

Bentley to me is the guy to go after. He has been a pro bowler at G and C and he is equally talented at both. Bentley locks down alot of options and allows us to part ways with McKinney's inflated contract.

Definately get Bentley, 26 year center would bring a lot to the table that would make us better...make this move along with drafting one of the top 3 LT's in the draft and we will really be on to something.

And I like Kyle Vaden Bosch...he plays for Fisher who is a superb judge and coach of talent (especially on defense IMO) and he never has taken a play off in a game that I have watched (unlike some of our pass rush "specialists"). I for one would love to see him bringing it to Manning twice a year.

I would pass on the other FA possibilities mentioned in the thread so far.

Go TEXANS...the turnaround has already begun!!!

I probably will get pelted for this, and there is probably no way we could swing this, but I would like for us to take a serious run at Eric Moulds if he is released/ traded by the Bills. Despite the negative press lately he has been more than a sold performer over the last 10 years. I think Moulds still has plenty in the tank, and would like to see AJ get some coverage relief.

I know it is more than pie in the sky, but....... pelt away

unfortunatly we probably wont be playing for a superbowl berth next year and probably not the year after either. i think we should refrain from signing the elderly.

Who said that. I dont remember any 1st pick OT. I think we could go Jimmy Williams, Aj Hawk, Greeway if we choose not to go any OL in Dbrick, or Winston or even McNeil.

Obcourse not 1 person here can say who it would be til we see how is released, signed, tender a contract, not tendered, trades. Bc we are uncertain of Buchannon, Peek, Orr, Babin, McKinney, Bradford (not unsure but through him in bc i knew some 1 say something) ect ect. Lets say we sign a OL or 2 in FA and we still pick #1 then we might go Bush but thats a very big if there. We wont go TE til 2nd or 3rd round.
