    Didn't see a thread on this. I saw Brandon Merriweather and Will Allen cut. Perhaps worth a look? And which punters are on the market?

    Someone posted in the NFL forum that Brandon Tate was cut by the Patriots. He could make a good KR and save Manning for playing D.

    I´d be ecstatic if we could get Meriweather... other than that a punter and perhaps some D-Line help...

    Take a look at dumping Bulman and grabbing Olshansky.

    Take a look at grabbing Merriwether and dumping Barber.

    Take a look at putting Carmichael on IR and grabbing Tate (or some other WR that's good and been cut loose.) I get worried only having 4 WRs.

    I would love to have Brandon Tate here. I loved what i saw from him last year, but maybe having Brady throwing to him made him look better than he actually was.

    Donnie Avery just got cut too. I'd definitely look at him for WR.

    Since Avery is from here i'm sure he'd be interested.

    He'll probably go to Arizona and reunite with Kolb.

    Dallas cut CB/S/KR Akwasi Owusu-Ansah. He was with Wade last year, and had a lot of fans on this board back in the 2010 draft.
