    Odd that Mario can be #2 behind a hall of famer when he sucks.

    You got stuck.

    He's definitely a 28-year-old shutdown corner when he's at the top of his game. Even though he hasn't really been as dominating and pro bowl worthy since 2008 and 2009. I'd like to have him shutting down the other half of the field alongside Johnathan Joseph, but we have no cap space and Andre Johnson may use him as his personal punching bag, LOL. But man he'd be a huge upgrade over Kareem Jackson, that's for sure. I think he'll end up signing a big contract with the Detroit Lions. The thing I like about Finnegan is he's durable and is never injured. He's played in all 16 games in five of his six NFL seasons so far.

    Cortland Finnegan, CB, Titans. Age: 28.

    Cortland Finnegan is a really good cornerback unless he has to cover Andre Johnson. He's expected to reunite with Jeff Fisher in St. Louis.

    That article has him going to the Rams. It would make some sense re-uniting with Fisher. But he'd be playing for a better team if he signed with the Lions or just stayed with the Titans. It may take the Rams two or three years just to turn things around.

    These player ratings are much more realistic.


    Matt Flynn, QB, Packers. Age: 27.
    3.5 stars
    When Matt Flynn threw for 480 yards in a Week 17 win over the Lions, he passed for more yardage than any Packer quarterback in a single game. There's a limited sample size, but the potential is clearly there. Flynn will be a starter somewhere next season. It's also worth noting that Charley Casserly, the man who spent early picks on David Carr and Dave Ragone, doesn't think too highly of Flynn. This could very well mean that Flynn has Pro Bowl potential.

    lol

    Don't you think the Texans have had enough Matt's here, but kidding aside Matt has that wow in him but he cost to much since a lot of teams need QB's

    I would take Finnegan but don't think Gary would sign him nor would I blame him either. So I guess what I mean is great if he did sign here but not terrible if he does not.

    If 6.8 million is after we sign are guys then we can sign Wallace, if you sign him to large deal like 5-6 years for 35-60mill then I think its not much on the cap maybe 1-3 million off so leave roughly 3.8 million is enough for draft picks and undrafted free agents.

    According to sources, #Vikings will not pay outstanding all-pro tackle Steve Hutchinson $7M due next year, ending 6-year run. #endtimes

    Maybe just have the mods alter the title and use it as such .... no reason to clutter the board with another.

    Okay so I'm not going to begin to make it look as if I have any idea who we can and cannot afford but I'm looking at some of the FA available and if at worse I know we can still upgrade from Jacoby. I'm one who really doesn't want him to go but I can't argue upgrading his position. I don't think we are going to be able to pull out the cash for an upgrade over KW but perhaps we can get a player that upgrades Jacoby with potential to upgrade KW.


    Some of the players I see available are:

    Early Doucet
    Roscoe Parrish (kr/pr duties too)
    Eddie Royal (WCO familiarity)
    Gregg Camarillo (KW replica, I will always remember the heart attack he gave me when we almost lost to the Dolphins by him punching out that ball when Eugene Wilson was returning it.)

    Ted Ginn (PR Duties)
    Donnie Avery (Might come on the cheap)
    Donte Stallworth (probably comeo on the cheap).

    Redskins more than likely are already feeling the effect of that 36 million dollar cap hit.
