    Agreed, and then draft DL.

    However, with an uncapped season coming up watch out for the Redskins to become a black hole for any decent free agent.

    So we shouldn't sign former Colt players because they eventually get old and can't play anymore?

    Brilliant. Harper was an outstanding signing as was Thornton. Thornton played at a super high level and Harper was solid. Sure those guys are getting old and it might be time to ove on but if a guy like Brackett could come in and play at the same level Thornton did I'd bring him in in a second. Jake Scott has been decent but he isn't getting paid like a pro-bowler either. That is the FA the Titans like. Solid players at decent prices. A good strategy IMO.

    Considering it could be an uncapped year I would try to extend all our future free agents this year. We could work the language of the contracts so that the cap hit would be biggest this year and the latter parts of the contracts would be cap friendly.

    This is all assuming that Bud would be OK with taking the risk of paying someone mostly upfront.

    Re-sign Brown


    Re-sign Tulloch as long as its a reasonable deal. If not I would look at Kirk Morrison or Barrett Ruud both would be upgrades over Steven and would not have to leave the field on passing downs thus increasing their value tremendously.

    Extend Leroy Harris now before he gets expensive

    Extend Chris Johnson now!~!~!

    Re-sign Alge (yeah he is old but were not going to go into the season with only Stevens and Cook)

    I agree with Gunny, we should aggressively target Dunta Robinson as our number one pickup. Despite a sub-par year, he made great strides in coming back from his knee injury from a couple of years ago. This really was his first full year back. If his asking price is too high I would not mind either Tramon Williams or Richard Marshall. Add Lito Sheppard to the list if he gets cut(looks likely). Will Blackmon would be worth a look if fully recovered from his knee injury.

    I would also like to be in the running at least for Julius Peppers. I'm ok if we don't end up signing him but at least attempt to address a need. He is now 30 and will be slowing down soon but is still in his prime and has at least another 3 good years left in him.

    Aaron Kampman would also be a wildcard. He's injured and looked lost all season but will be worth a look if he can rehab strongly this off-season.

    Just say no to Dumervil. While I like the kid, he is only a pass rusher and gets absolutely KILLED on rushing plays. They basically just run exclusively to his side. Situational pass rusher at best on a good defense.

    I bolded or underlined the more important moves.

    Trade up to get MT. Cody!! Our problems start with the DLine. If we don't correct that, it doesn't matter who we have in the secondary. I don't know any other possible DTs besides Wilfork who plays NT in the 3-4...heck, switch to a 3-4 and go after Wilfork and let Jason Jones be a DE, Hayes and Ford as OLBs?? I like the sound of this already.

    Probably wouldn't have to trade up for Cody. He's projected Mid/Late 1st round mostly because of stamina issues.

    Does anybody know when the free agency period officially begins? Im 80% it's after the draft; which I never really understood.

    I always thought it was before the draft. I wasn't sure though, so I checked it and this site confirmed it: http://www.askthecommish.com/freeagency/faq.asp. It also has some other good information about how free agency works, which I admit I'm no expert on.
