This is how I see this off season playing out. Coaching changes: Arizona hires Norm Chao as head coach- Bring in Matt Leinart’s old mentor Trade: Atlanta trades Matt Schaub for Randy Moss Free Agent Signings: Detroit Lions sign T Leonard Davis- Under performer in Arizona has enough clout to sign a god sized deal for a team desperate for O-Line help NY Jets sign CB Asante Samuel- Patriots will not match the deal old coach Mangine will give to regain one of his prized processions to fill a big hole. Others who will fight for his services are Titans and 49ers. San Francisco signs LB Adalius Thomas- Desperate need for a run stopper will make 49ers the number one bidder for this star. Detroit signs RB Ahman Green- Kevin Jones' injury may be serious. One area where Green will get a heavy dose of time. Miami signs RB Chris Brown- Two RB system may be the best for Ronnie Brown. Miami really can't count on Ricky Williams to stay clean for a year. Other team who might attract his services could be Texans. He will become the featured back with the Texans even if DW comes back healthy. As of this moment I am not counting on DW to be on the team next year. Other RB who Texans might pursue is Michael Turner from SD if the price is right. New Orleans signs TE Daniel Graham- Will enjoy playing in a system that calls for him to block, his specialty, and he will, for the first time, be the number one receiving option for his squad at TE. Kansas City signs WR Drew Bennet- Have been in desperate need for a strong receiver. Bennet will get a good deal in this weak free agent class for WR's. Oakland cuts Warren Sapp, resign Terdel Sands- Sands will demand playing time to resign, and Sapp will be forced to be a salary cap casualty. Indianapolis signs DT Warren Sapp- Tony Dungy needs a plugger in the middle and Sapp is one of his favorites. Will give Sapp the opporunity to play for a contender. St. Louis Rams cut Issac Bruce, resign Kevin Curtis- Bruce still has game, but Curtis is a great talent and Bruce has reached his peak. Tennessee signs WR Issac Bruce- Desperately need help at the WR position. Bruce can help Vince Young's maturity rise even further. They can sign him for 2 yrs. since he is getting up in age and Titans are young team. Cincinnati resigns DE Justin Smith Tampa Bay signs LB Lance Briggs- Played and excelled in the Cover 2. Could help to bring back defensive intensity to the Bucs. Houston signs OL Mike Gandy- Athletic lineman fits perfectly into Gary Kubiak's blocking scheme. Houston signs QB Jake Plummer - when he gets cut by Broncos. This year Kubiak will have open competition at the QB position and the best man wins. Best case scenario starter QB Jake Plummer or Sage Rosenthal and worst case scenario being David Carr if he is still around next year. Personally speaking I am not a big fan of Plummer, he is just as bad as David Carr. I would prefer for Texans to trade or cut David Carr and have Sage starting the season at QB and draft a QB to groom for year or two. New Orleans signs CB Nate Clements- Maybe the top player in the free agency class, Clements will be drawn to Payton and the story of the Saints. San Diego signs LB Junior Seau- Still chasing that elusive ring, what better team to do it with then the one that made him famous? Arizona signs C Hank Fraley- Need offensive line help in the worst way Carolina signs LB Cato June- Panthers need tacklers and June is one of the best in the business. Indianapolis resigns DE Dwight Freeny- After a subpar year, the offers won't be as strong as they would have been last year. 49ers sign S Ken Hamlin Minnesota cuts CB Fred Smoot Arizona signs CB Fred Smoot 2007 Draft: 1 Oakland: trades 1st pick to Arizona for 5th pick, 37th pick, and 2008 second round pick Arizona: Joe Thomas, T (Wisconsin): Cardinals will have to give up this much to get their target. Detroit, Cleveland, and Oakland all have trouble with their offensive lines and need to upgrade, and there is no Quinn-Russell like debate at tackle. Thomas is the best and you’ll need to give to get him if you’re picking number 5. Exactly what the Cardinals need. A big, dominant left tackle who is athletic and intelligent enough to make the move over to right to help protect Leinart’s blindside. 2. Detroit: Jamarcus Russell, QB (LSU): They need an offensive line, that is true. But the fact is, the Lions are a weak team. They have no QB for the future. Kitna is old. If they loved McCown, he’d have been the starter at the end of the season. Orlovsky wasn’t brought in to ever be a starter, just a body on the depth chart. Russell outplaying Quinn in the Sugar Bowl will give him the edge and become the man to deliver Roy Williams the ball. 3. Cleveland: Trades 3rd overall pick to Minnesota for 7th , 39th pick, and 2008 2nd round pick Minnesota: Calvin Johnson, WR (Georgia Tech): It will be a bidding war with Cleveland to get Johnson. Tampa will have two 2nd rounders to offer up, so if Minnesota really wants him they’ll have to seriously up the ante. Childress should drool over the possibility of this freakish athlete running down the field the way players can fly on Minny’s turf. Minny will also know that if they don’t get CJ at this pick, they will most likely loose out on their number 2 option, Gaines Adams, to either Tampa or Washington. 4. Tampa Bay: Gaines Adams, DE (Clemson): They will be broken hearted to loose out on Johnson, but Adams also fills a big need as a pass rusher. 5. Oakland: Adrian Peterson, RB (Oklahoma): Great talent, has the potential to be a game breaker for the Raiders. Runs in the same style as Raider’s great Marcus Allen. 6. Washington: Alan Branch, DT (Michigan): Give up far too many rushing yards. Ends draw a lot of attention because their tackles can be blocked man to man. 7. Cleveland: Brady Quinn, QB (Notre Dame): They’ll have 2 picks in the second round and presumably 2 picks in next year’s second round to build the offensive line up for the future. Get a potential franchise QB behind center. Quinn may struggle at times, but we need to stop looking at him as an NFL ready QB and maybe as a guy who has a lot of tools and just needs some fine tuning. 8. Houston: Darrele Revis, CB (Pittsburgh): Very talented corner will fly up the draft charts due to his athleticism and the struggles Leon Hall had the last 2 games of his collegiate career. 9. Miami: Glen Dorsey, DT (LSU): All-American has the mix of strength and athleticism to make him a cornerstone for an NFL front four. 10. Atlanta: Reggie Nelson, S (Florida): Almost a steal for one of the draft’s top prospects, Nelson can help prevent the big plays that the Falcons have been giving up this season.
