Default Re: Key FA signings for 2008

Greg White tore us up yesterday and everyone saw it. Well seems he is a FA at the end of the season and TB may not have the cap room to make him a good offer.

Now he maybe loyal to them, they did give him his break, then again he might want to get that one big payday, they have always alluded him. So he is someone to put on the radar, see how the Bucs deal with him this offseason, he is behind a 1st round pick Gaines Adams. And he is only a RDE and so is Adams.

Just keep watching.

Simmons, Jason - See ya
Turk, Matt - Resign
Weary, Fred - Resign
Wynn, Dexter

Restricted Free Agents
Brown, C.C.
Maddox, Anthony
Mathis, Jerome
my resigns are ...

jason simmons - special teamer, versatile in secondary and even more than robinson is our biggest hitter.

von hutchins - see simmons (without being a hitter)

fred weary - a solid right guard and a player who can start for this team

charlie anderson - vet minimum, decent backup LB, and strong special teamer.

andre davis - burners are easy to sign, but davis has earned his contract and has proven himself here as an offensive and special teams threat.

ron dayne - IMO our perfect backup ... there are "dayne" games where he'll stand out, and he's perfect in kubiak's scheme as a space eater ... provided we can find a legit starter.

will demps - MAYBE. i'm not sold in the least on demps although my peers are. if he comes at a minor salary as depth (we need a legit FS), i'm comfortable with him as a backup (though simmons & hutchins are more versatile).

glenn earl - trade bait or cut if he cant beat brown through preseason.

matt turk - resign.

cc brown - resign.

mathis & maddox - hope someone else wants them ... with the special teams craze i'd get the entire PR team to try and sell mathis.

salaam is not good enough to be a backup. period. end of conversation. let salaam go or encourage retirement.

As long as we pick up a real running back in free agency (like M. Turner) the Texans dont need to resign Dayne. We would have Turner, Green, Taylor, Walker there is no room for Dayne. Dayne is not that good as a no 2 back, he is only productive when getting enough carries to wear down the defense. Unless we are planning on making Dayne our feature back next year he doesnt need to be resigned.
I dont know if you cut Dayne. He is a good back to hgave on your team. And to be honest, a little more proven than M. Turner. Just not a big fan of throwing huge money at another teams back up. Draft a guy late and use him as part of a 1-2 punch.
