    A physical stud for Wade's defense? Yes please, he can be recoached and inspired by the work of Cushing and Watt, and the leadership of the Ninja

    If Texans can't resign Barwin, I would like to get Kruger here.

    Paul Kruger got the highest grade of any Raven. Contract expires at end of year - he just gave his agent more material to work with

    Sounds like he will be out of our price range, but if it's possible, I sure would like to have him. This year's free agency is going to have some crazy size contracts for mid-level players.

    Wouldn't you have to cut Antonio Smith as well as not resign Barwin? I know they are having salary cap issues over on Kirby if last off season was any indication...

    If that's all it took to sign Kruger then I think I'd be down with that...

    That would be stupid. I don't get the A Smith hate around here.

    Not hating on the guy. I think he's a solid player, but his best years are probably behind him. Kruger is hitting his prime and is a better player.

    Do you think he's an 8-9.5 million a year player? I sure as hell don't. He needs to extend and restructure or hit the road.

    Kruger + resigning Quin would be ideal this offseason.

    Question to all, would you rather have Kruger or Barwin if money wasn't a factor?

    Why would we want him over Barwin? He's had a decent year, but so did Barwin last year. Meh, seems like a bigger slower version of what we already have.

    So you would be on with cutting A Smith and letting Barwin walk just to sign Kruger?
