Default suggested FA!

I was checking out the Lions thanksgiving game and thought of a good possible FA. Ernie Simms. This guy is wasting there in Detroit, and he should be becoming a FA after next year or so because he was drafted at the time Mario and Demeco were.

He could definetly take over the middle and move Ryans to whatever side we need him to.

I may be wrong on him being a FA this year though. Just a thought.

I had a dream we picked up Peppers in the offseason, not expecting it to happen, don't even know if he's resigned with carolina, it was just an interesting dream.

What would we do with Mario swapping sides if we got Peppers though.

(also dreamed we drafted a huge DT in the 3rd round to finish up the line, I actually hope that one comes true)

Word is Carolina has vowed to franchise Peppers.

Sims isn't a free agent for 4 more years:
Quote:
7/30/2006: Signed a five-year, $15.735 million contract. The deal includes $12.1 million in guarantees. 2008: $715,000, 2009: $850,000, 2010: $800,000, 2011: $635,000 (Voidable Year), 2012: Free Agent

Simms is signed through 2011 with the last year voidable so he is at least 2 seasons off from FA.

Aaack--not happening (even if it should) so why does this keep getting brought up?

I think the right move would be to bring in Haynesworth and steal him from right under the Titan's nose. Sure, its gonna cost money but such is the price for great players. Mario and Haynesworth side by side and you would have the added benefit of taking him away from the Titans and having him hurt other team's QBs and stop hurting our own.

I also wouldn't have a problem bringing Ray Lewis in here to give this defense some heart and leadership. He still has 2 or 3 years left in the tank and I would like to see him join our coaching ranks once he retires. He has a great football mind and has great attention to detail. Something our defense has lacked for a long time. I think he will make a great coach, maybe even a great head coach someday. He brings credibility and passion to the table. It makes sense as long as we dont pay franchise LB money. Give him decent money and some incentives that trigger if we go to AFC Championship Game or win a playoff game. Get creative but get him in our fold. He has a great future ahead of him and I'd like to see him have success here.

Wouldn't just free up Mario, he would unleash Okoye to his best role.

he just exudes passion for the game and for winning and his leadership is renowned. his teammates basically fear his wrath if they make a bad play. he also does all the work in the film room and in preparation. he's practically an on the field DC.

I know he is dedicated and does extra film time with Ed Reed and he is a motivator but that doesn't always translate to coach.

LMFAO !!

I want Tom Brady at QB, LT at runningback and Jeff Saturday at Center. Opps, sorry, I thought this was where we mentioned players that would be available when they are way past there prime or when hell freezes over.

I would not mind looking at Colin Cole of GB or even Tank Johnson from Dallas if he signs a big personal conduct clause. RB Derrick Ward or as a big reserve Lamont Jordan NE (small contract only). DT Jovan Haye to replace TJ.

Yes I have not mentioned any huge FA because I do not see an OLB or safety that is going to become available that would not be just Madden type crap.
