If not, make room by giving big contract Taylor, who wasnt starting towards the end of the season, and Reed the axe. Plus we save more Staley money this season I think!

Default Re: Cap?

Question. Will throwing money around in free agency be the best solution this offseason? The cost of premiere free-agent offensive lineman and running backs is sick. Just ask the Seahawks (one lost - one retained).

The Rooney's should be bolstering the scouting department ASAP with that merchandise 'war chest' from last season. We could draft as high as 10-12.

But. Since the D-line was the only unit to show up this season we may have more holes than plugs.

So bringing in more bodies via the draft may be the only option...and a few chaperones too.

I'm from the Rooney school on FAs. Just ask Dan Snyder how well big-ticket FAs work.

Harting is probably retiring...Porter will probably get picked up by another team...Duce is gone we could let Wilson..Tuman...Reed go with the chance of replacing all of them with equal or greater talent..all for a total of about $19.5 million

Of course thats if someone picks up some of those players and we dont have to eat all or part of their salaries
