Default Re: Off Season Moves- If I were in Charge

Ok this ought to be fun ... I agree with most of what you were saying

According to these articles,
I would do all the restructures(20 mill saved) ,
Cut Harrison(5 mill saved) ,
Cut Keisel and Cotchery(4 mill saved)
Restructure or release Ike Taylor (My favorite player on the Steelers so this hurts, but business is business and it would save 4 mill)... only an option IF NEEDED
Resign for Cheaper or Cut Colon (1 mill in cap savings)....
that would free up about 34 mill ... (16 over the cap to start , save 34 , now have 18mil open) ... all numbers are rounded for easy math

Resigns
With only 18 mill to work with , this is the part that will get messy
Sign - Keneen Lewis - 4 mill a year? sounds fair to me.... now down to 15 mill
Sign - Max Starks - 1 mill ... now down to 14 mill
Sign - Ramon Foster - 2 mill a year? ... now down to 13 mill
Bring back the backup QB Johnson had on the pre season roster , and Denise Dixon ... both would be minimum signings , whatever that is ... so say still have 12 mill Left (8 without cutting Ike)

Draft using http://www.drafttek.com/2013-NFL-Mock-Draft-Round1b.asp (to see who will be left when)
1st - trade back with Rams , they want to jump infront of the Bears to take the best Oline ... either Warmack or Eric Fisher , get an extra 4th and 5th to drop back 4 spots
1st (From Rams) - Tyler Eifert - TE - Notre Dame - Need with Heath out and getting older
2nd - Desmond Trufant - CB - Washington - Need with letting Ike go, and Curtis Brown showed nothing
3rd - Da'Rick Rodgers - WR - Tennessee Tech - Letting Cotch go, and adding a tall receiver and allowing Sanders to work the slot instead of outside
4th(from Rams) - Gerald Hodges - ILB/OLB - Penn State - probably will move inside if Spence isn't ready, but can play Outside also if needed, 2 years with other 100 tackles, and good in coverage
4th - Duke Williams - SS - Nevada - Love the Value here, will be a good Pro, great at running with receivers and TEs
5th (from Rams) - Omoregie Uzzi - OG - Gerogia Tech - Depth
5th - Trevardo Williams - OLB - Conn - Great Pass rush upside value here

Depth Chart
Offense
QB - Ben , Johnson - Dixon
RB - Dwyer - Redman - Rainey - Batch
WR - Brown - Sanders
WR- Rodgers - Toney Clemons
TE- Heath - Eifert - Paulson
LT - Gilbert - Starks
LG - Foster - uzzi
C - Pouncey - Legs
RG - Decastro - Uzzi
RT - Adams - Beachum

Defense
DE - Heyward - Woods
NT - Mclendon - Tamu - Fangpu
DE - Hood - Woods
ROLB - Worilds - Carter - Trevardo Williams

ILB - Spence - Hodges
LOLB - Woodley - Trevardo Williams
CB - Ike Taylor? - Keenan Lewis - Cortez Allen - Desmond Trufant - Curtis Brown - Van Dyke
FS - Clark - Cromartie-Smith - Golden
SS - Troy - Duke Williams

Sign a few others for depth , also have 2 other draft pics ... depending on Salary Cut Ike (if the 4 mill isn't needed don't cut him, I don't want too)

but that's the over run
