    Umenyiora, Abraham, and Freeney.

    Abraham and Freeney are also visiting the Broncos... in case things with Dumervil don't work out.

    We need to make an offer to Dumervil!!!

    So he's not going back to Denver. The Ravens don't have the money. As much as I'd love for the Titans to land this guy, I don't really think we have the money either. I have a sick feeling the Pats are gonna swoop in.

    I think Freeney would be the best value here. Aren't we over the cap currently though?

    He does say "in my opinion". So I take that as him trying to remain distant from the situation. He would be surprised if they offered him the most of the teams interested. So he's not totally ruling it out, which he usually has no problem doing. Maybe they'll pay, maybe they won't, it just depends on how much they like him, and only Ruston Webster has that answer.

    I think that would get it done, we may be able to offer that with some roster shuffling or carryover money (still not 100% sure how that works). Obviously they like him, but do they like him that much? He's supposed to start setting up visits, so I guess then we'll see how interested they really are.
