    Whatya think? Should we go after Hamlin in FA or wait and hope to get Nelson with our first pick? Somethin else?

    For some reason, and I can't quite pinpoint excactly what it is, but I'm not a big fan of Nelson. I like Landry, or Merriweather, more. Hamlin is a solid vet who knows how to play in the NFL. I think he's a safer pick. We did just get Lowery last year also.

    I'd rather spend our first rounder on something else, WR, CB or DE please.

    We are not paying for Hamlin, he wants too much $$$. Just look @ the deal Grant got this morning from Seattle.

    Unless Landry or Nelson fall somehow to #19 which is highly unlikely for Landry, just maybe for Nelson, it'll be Lowry & Hope starting at safety next year.

    I'd rather give Lowry and Fuller an REAL chance at the position. Doesnt make sense to spend quality picks on S then never give them the opportunity. Everyone can say that they didnt earn it and force fish to sit LT this season, but you'd be crazy to say fish isnt a loyalist to his players almost to a fault.

    There has to be a reason we drafted Lowry in the 4th round.. so let him play i say. Hamlin would be nice tho.

    If we're not going to sign a high-caliber FA safety, then why not sign Troy Vincent on the cheap? He would be an excellent mentor for Lowrey/Fuller/Whoever we draft. Plus, he would bring big leadership to a secondary that desperately needs it. I admit, not a sexy signing, but a smart one.

    Definitly not sexy.. but smart. He might not be able to "go" anymore. But he still has a little play in him. He would surely mentor our young guys. And maybe teach Thompson how not to suck

    Don't know enough about Hamlin to know which I'd prefer, but I don't think we're going to do either...
