I was recently on footballsfuture and someone suggested signing Dan Connor, simply to focus on other needs in the draft... while I like this idea I like D'Qwell Jackson better, I think we could get either at the same price...

What does everyone think?

It's a decent idea but it won't happen, linebackers are made from scratch in Pittsburgh.

Ironically, the one we are talking about replacing, James Farrior, wasn't.

Not that I think we will sign anyone of importance anyway, just saying.

I was just going to say the same thing. Do not know at what price but that will be a key factor.

we gotta get our salary cap under control before thinking of making moves in the FA market

We haven't signed a FA LB since K. Fox. He did not work out at all and they are definitely not willing to give Connor who is a rising ILB a hefty contract and D'Qwell Jackson is easily one of the best ILB in the league and he will sign a huge contract with the Browns. They will definitely draft an ILB this season as well. Plus they are not finished developing S. Sylvester and they like M. Ivy a lot

no way the Browns let DQ go.. he's one of the very few core players on that team they can build around..

Is that the word they use for not playing sylvester, developing?

DQ and Dan Connor would be great fits; they are upgrades from an older Farrior and Foote who is not anywhere near as good as he was in 05. I would love to see this upgrade but with our FA issues can we afford it? I hope they can work it out.

RAVENS will take him, that is one AREA (Linebackers corp) that needs to be address in F.A or Draft.

Oh and he is a freaking Beast, very underrated for someone that does get alot of praise too.

There is no way in hell the Ravens will want to pay an ILB the money DQJ wants. They will draft an ILB like they always do and let him learn behind Gay Lewis

I'm excited about Sylvester. With him, Worilds, Woodley and Timmons we have a really good young starting core. And, we still have Harrison for a year or two also. Draft a few LBs for depth over the next 2 years and we'll be set.

With our cap situation there is no way we sign any expensive FA's. It is not going to happen.

IMO it makes way more sense to target the best free agent nose tackle to replace Hampton. 3-4 nose tackles don't typically get paid a ton of $. It shouldn't be hard to find a NT who is just as good as Hampton, but cheaper. Then use the draft to pick up an OG and an ILB.
