    I'm excited about this offseason.
    We have alot of holes, but we have a lot of cap space. The signing of Wilson was very timely, I still think we draft a SS a some point. We still have alot of cap to fill some needs, and also more if need be through restructuring. The guys I'd like to see are as follows:

    Martellus Bennett TE - He is a slightly slower better blocking Cook. Good age. I'd offer him 4y/22m(I like Myers and Keller as other options)
    Louis Vasquez RG - I prefer him to Levitre because he's more of a road grader and is a natural RG. He might even be less expensive. 5y/32m
    Cornerback - There is a slew of decent free agent CB's available in FA. I think we need to grab a decent one and move Verner to the nickel . The guy I'd really like is Asomugha. Others I like include Gamble, Cason and Talib. 2y/10m
    Running Back - We are rubbish at drafting RB, part from CJ. I think we should add a big RB before the draft eliminating that need. I like Bradshaw the most, others include Turner, Ivory and maybe Jacobs. 2-3m.

    So ideally Vasquez, Bennett, Asomugha and Bradshaw.
    In the draft we go in looking for:
    1. DT
    2.DE
    3.OG/C
    3.(c)SS,
    4. WR

    I hope for a somewhat similar free agency period but i find myself asking is this isn't too much to hope for. Is there any precedent for a team with a similar cap situtation acquiring so many free agents? I feel like like in past free agency periods teams normally add only like 1 or 2 free agents. Adding 5 guys at positions of need would be amazing.

    Depends if people wanna keep there jobs. I spent about 20m in cap hit there. If we dont have that now, we can easily get to it.

    We need 2 new guards and a center period. I do not care how we get them. We need a pass rusher and at least decent safeties. We need a power back and some depth at MLB since Mac cannot stay on the field. Many many holes to fill.
