Default This off season is going to be interesting..Can we sign a good player.

There are 7 teams this year that are 10 Mil or more over the salary cap. If we could get out salary cap 10 Mil or so below the cap number for 2006. We could sign a very good player. With these teams they are going to need to cut some good players to get under the cap. The teams are Atl, Ten, Was, KC, Den, NYJ, and Oak.

Out of these teams are there any player that you think would help our team?

The Atlanta Falcons have 5 FA Safeties this year. 3 are 28 years old, and have started at FS in the NFL; Ronnie Heard, Antuan Edwards, and Keion Carpenter. One of them is gonna be cut, and probably won't cost that much money. Interesting to look into...

For Tennessee, it'd be interesting to get Vanden Bosch, but who would we replace? Aaron Smith or Kiesel/Kimo, whoevers starting next year. I think we're pretty good at DE, all we need is a little depth..

Plus, Ron Dayne from Denver'd be an interesting idea if we did end up cutting Staley...

Definately, but the secret is out on this guy now after yesterdays Pro Bowl. But it will be hard for us because we are still over the cap, even when the cap increases to $95 mill. And we have our own FAs that we would like to resign.
