    No Clements Now What??

    Now that Clements is off the market, where does everyone think we should go from here?
    I would like to see us resign Drew and bring in another veteran reciever.

    Go after Kerney and if not lets get Kevin Carter back in the fold.

    There isnt a whole lot left out there unless we get into the trade game. I have seen alot or rumors here and other places about Jonathan Vilma being on the trade block. I would love to see him brought in here to solidy our line backing corps.

    So we pass up on one free agent who is going to be paid way more than he is worth and we don't feel like spending any money. It is day one of free agency for crying out loud! How about just a bit a patience.

    That kind of spending puts you right back on track for Cap jail. I belive the only other signing bonus that was more than this $23 Mill was what Manning, the top player in the game right now.

    new salary cap, though...you cannot compare past signings to this year b/c the cap is bloated from what it has ever been in the past...and the new rules for pro-rating signing bonuses make it even larger than what it is...

    free agency this year and beyond (until the next cba agreement) is a whole different creature...

    I would not spend on clements because there goes all of our money, but that said, what you come to realize after being around long enuff, is that in 3 years, Clements will look like a bargain. A team should never be afraid to spend. I just think that this time he is not worth it. We should just wait until next year to spend our money.
