Default 2 gap DT free agents?

One thing that our DL doesn't have is a space eating DT. Does anyone know of any FA candidates that can fill this hole on our DL to help our run defense? Every team in our division has an above average running game at the least, we really need to get a big run stuffing DT on our DL imo.

Isaac Sopoaga is a guy who I wouldn't mind having around...but the 49ers have stated that they are going to try to keep him since Bryant Young is retiring. He's young and can handle the two gap assignment.

let me remind you about a guy named Randy Moss. attitude problems seemed to be his persona and then a 4th round trade sent him to a team where they don't take bull like that and he came in 2nd in MVP voting.

There are a few differences in these stories and Haynesworth wont get MVP but Kubiak needs to stop the run and this guy does it.

Default Re: 2 gap DT free agents?

another option is to go with another LB

Dan Connor will go around 18 and he can stop the run.

I would have no problem signing Haynesworth or at least making the Titans pay through the nose to keep him. I don't think there is a chance in hell of it happening but I wouldn't be pissed if it did. At least bidding on him would make the Titans pay more to keep him. I like players that are mean and angry anyway. Charles Haley and Reggie White were the best i ever saw on the DL and both those guys were mean on and even sometimes off the field.

We need to get mean and knock this 'nice guy' 'good guys' Astros BS off. Its football not badminton.

We are sorely lacking someone in the Sam Adams/Ted Washington/Grady Jackson mold that can clog up a hole and stand his ground on short yardage situations.

The more interesting question is whether DC Richard Smith even sees the need for a space eater. Yeah, he inherited a certain line, but GM Rick Smith usually throws a lot of guys at a position if they have a need to see if one of those guys fits. (see e.g. cornerbacks, wide receivers). He hasn't been bringing in any fat mens.

Default Re: 2 gap DT free agents?

So we either have a get to the QB DT such as Okoye and to some extent TJ or a fat boy plugging a hole? I thought all the yelling I heard for the last 2-3 years was for a rush the passer front four? Would it be nice if they could do both? Of course, but I do not see that a biggie now. As someone else said we have LBs to stop the run and a SS too.

I only wish, but both Adams and Jackson are so freakin old that I don't think it would be worth even trying unless we are signing them for vet minimums.

Haynesworth is going to get the ol "Franchise" tag you can mark my words about that. A few of those names sounded nice, but definitely not anybody I would break the bank over.

That's why I said in that "mold" I think Adams/Jackson/Washington's best years are over. But if we can get a player with a similar skillset I think that is a huge upgrade to our run defense.

Haha, I thought you meant mold as in being so old. . . nevermind <---wtf?

Anyway, I think that this year, we're probably not going to find that big rock in the middle of the D-line in the draft this year. If we end up with a big NT, then I think it'll end up being a fringe or moderate FA signing.

Maybe we can trade Anthony Weaver to Tennessee for Haynesworth straight up?

Yes! While we're at, why don't we trade Ahman Green for Adrian Peterson?
