sure we can sign champ bailey and carl nicks at the expense of these 5 but how does that really help the team? replace ike with a much higher paid CB?

i say we look for bargains. we coulda had faneca for less than 2 million with the jets footing the rest of the bill (sort of a bargain move like flozell adams was). does anyone think we would be any worse with faneca back as opposed to the rotation of stapelton/urbick/essex/foster we have used the past 2 seasons?
Faneca IS available! I'd take him back for a season or 2...

agreed. some of the best available free agents out there are already on our team.

we need all 3. its rough to say but Woodley is probably the one i would lose on that list if i had to choose 1 but that would hurt bad. without Taylor we wouldnt be able to stop a team like arizona from passing all day on us. Colon is a decent lineman and if the price is right we can really use him to get our running game going. Woodley, well i dont have to explain why we need him

For me it depends how the linebackers we drafted last year are doing. Can one of them "replace" Woodley? I doubt it. Woodley has the ability to collapse a pocket like no other. I think we would miss him a lot.

We need Ike "Stone Hands" Taylor.

Colon would be the one I would lose. He is okay but not stellar. Maybe its just the games I watched but he was always getting holding and false start penalties. I'm surprised but Flozell is actually doing okay.

Tough call.

If there was one free agent to get I would go after Jonathon Joseph. BMAC needs to go back to Arizona.....

If we signed Woodley, Colon and Taylor but lost some other players(because of age, injuries, etc...) who would be a good fit to come in and help? Believe me, I understand we need to sign our better free agents, but we also need to shore up holes!!!

i would love to sign JJ over anyother free agent but its almost gurenteed the bengals will never let him go. if we kept taylor and had JJ on the other side we would be dominant on D. we would be able to rush extra players on every down because both corners could play man well enough. i would love to have another good corner. my main fear is taylor leaves for a big contract and were stuck with mcfadden and gay. we would be tore up all year

If Jonathan Joseph doesnt get signed, he would be a tremendous help to our defense if we were agressive enough to actually sign a free agent...
