    I think I saw Keo on the field more that Alan Ball so I'm not to upset over loosing him. Forsett will hurt more but we will probably sign a FA rookie who fits our scheme so we should be OK.

    Losing Forsett is going to hurt more than you think if Tate doesn't return to form.

    Haha starting to sound like you would lose the whole team if it gets you compenatory picks.

    All seriousness any compensatory picks would be better then resigning them, even though i like forsett...

    Last year the comp pick AAV ranges were:

    3 - $6.5/$7 million and greater
    4 - $5 to $6.5/$7 million
    5 - $4 to $5 million
    6 - $2.5/2.75 to $4 million
    7 - $1 to $2.5/2.75 million


    Glover got 4.7 a AAV
    Barwin got 6 AAV
    Casey got 4.833 AAV
    Ball got ?
    Forsett got ?

    If we don't sign anyone of note, we should get a pair of 5ths and a 4th in compensation. Probably a 7th for Ball or Forsett. I imagine they didn't sign for much. It's better than nothing :D

    And before anyone asks, Kevin Walter doesn't qualify for comp picks because he was cut, so it doesn't matter what he signs for elsewhere.

    These are back of the roster players, so it's going to be hard for too many people to dial up any give a damn over this. But think about this - that's two more spots that they'll have to fill. Will they fill them with better players, hopefully for less money? There are only so many draft picks and depth matters. It's unfortunate that Alan Ball saw the field at all last year, but he did. Forsett gave some quality carries in his limited time. Now there's a need for depth.

    But they signed Gardener and ... well, someone else. I forget his name.

    That's a bummer. I liked Forsett. So which free agent Runningback are we bringing in to be our 3rd RB? We went from Ward, to Forsett, now ????

    I would say Grimes. He looked pretty good and I think with a little more coaching he could develop into a nice player .

    I don't know if we can count on an old RB coming back from a lisfranc injury. :swatter:

    That would be disturbing. I realize they have 11 draft picks coming, but there needs to be some vets brought in to fill spots like WR, NT, ILB, and SS. Not big names guys necessarily. But not all vet minimum guys, either.
