he is still in town. he's one of my neighbors and hasn't put his house up yet. I am sure he isn't opposed to coming back if you are really serious.

I am going to tick off some people, I say pay Jared Allen big bucks, cut Weaver, he plays the positions we have drafted the last two 1st round picks also play. Casserly missed again in FA. Nice guy, but he is being paid pass rusher money to be an average run stopper, I say only spend pass rusher money on pass rushers.

Now if you really want a DL, not only do you need to sign Allen, but you need to go offer Haynesworth a large stack of cash.

If he turns you down a realistic signing is Jovan Haye, he can be had by signing him to an offer sheet the Bucs can't match and giving up a 6th round pick, he is worth a 6th rounder.

I also know Allen is most likely franchised, so a back up plan is Travis LaBoy, or as mentioned earlier Suggs.

If we can get Haynesworth, then maybe we won't have to worry about Shaubby getting hurt so much...

Isn't Bobby McCray a free agent after this season?

I expect Haynesworth will be franchised as well.

Everyone,

Guys like Jared, Haynesworth, Mathis, & KVB will always get tagged or signed before they hit free agency. Unless there are negative things going on behind the scenes, teams just don't let that kind of talent get away. That'd be like us letting Mario go & that ain't gonna' happen. We need to focus on the more obscure players & backups. Along that note, here's a very obscure player (Eric Bakhtiari) from San Diego University in the upcoming draft that we might get in the 5th to 7th round.

http://condraft.com/database/pioneer...ari/index.html

Overview

Eric attended Burlingame (CA) High where he tallied 76 tackles and 14.5 sacks as a senior, leading his club to a 12-1 mark. He earned 1st Team All League, All-County, and Co-Defensive MVP, and also lettered in track. In College he was a beast at the IAA level and was named to numerous all-American teams as well as PFL Defensive Player of the Year following his stellar senior campaign.

Strengths

Dominant pass-rusher at the IAA level who just keeps coming. Relentless. Great motor. Never gives up on a play. Doesn't walk around if he thinks the play will be nowhere near him. Great hand usage. Multiple pass rush moves. Holds the point very well against IAA tackles. Solid tackler. Slides through gaps. Makes himself small. Practically unblockable in many games, especially over the past two season. Has gotten bigger and better every year. May still have some growth potential left. Technically sound warrior who wants it. Explosive. Surprisingly good athlete. Has the same level of potential as fellow Californian IAA DE, Chris Gocong, had coming out of college.

Weaknesses

Not real big. Not exceptionally strong, and can get stronger. Straight line speed does not jump out at you. Can get be caught in trash, and needs to do a better job protecting his legs from the chop. Slightly over-aged. May have maxed his potential. Does not really project that well to OLB the way Gocong did.

Projection Priority

UDFA or late-round surprise selection.

Why don't we trade them Michael Boulware for him straight up?!
