Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

With close to 75M in cap space going into the offseason, feel free to breakdown, tear this post apart, suggest players:

My free agent list-

RB: 

a few starting RBs hitting the market, a couple good back who can add depth(left out RFA)-

  • Levon Bell(27)- Elite top 5 back. He is going to get paid big bucks by someone 
  • Mark Ingram(29)- getting close to 30, but might leave Saints to get paid and more carriers.. I would sign him on 2-3 year deal but no monster contract
  • Tevin Coleman(26) - didn't do much when Freeman went down. I'll just sign him to a year prove it deal.. wouldn't throw big money at him
  • TJ Yeldon(25) - guy I really want us to look at, stuck behind Fournette. coming off the best season of his career. Can run, and good pass catcher.. Hitting his prime
  • Marshawn Lynch(33)- looked good when healthy, but got hurt. Peterson,and Gore still getting the job done. Could leave to contender or retire
  • Tay Murray(29)- stuck as number 2 back with Vikings. Wants to be a starter again

guys who could add depth or fill a role-

  • CJ Anderson (28) - really solid for the Rams towards the end of the season
  • Spencer Ware(27)- KC signed Damien Williams over him. Former starting KC Back
  • Doug Martin(30)- hamster still good depth
  • Bilan Powell(30)-  a good passing back, could bring competition to Richard
  • Mike Davis(26)- played really solid for Seahawks, could be off man out with Carson and Rashad Penny. Solid Running back

FB: 

could upgrade over Kevin Smith with a few guys-

  • Mike Burton(27)- elite running backing FB..We should try to poach the Bears any chance we get
  • Anthony Sherman(30)- only other FB of note.... stud run blocker, special teamer, and better ball skills than K Smith

WR:

no number 1 WRs, market has more WR2/Slot-

  • Golden Tate(31)- top WR on market, probably looking for last payday... Not sure his is worth it
  • John Brown(29)- deep threat, but has a history of injuries 
  • Adam Humphries(26)- tore it up this season. Bucs might release Desean Jackson and ink Adam.. Perfect Slot
  • Jamison Crowder(26)- has talent to be a solid slot, but he is coming off an injury riddled 2018. Could be a good buy low, went to Duke(smart WR)
  • Tyrell Williams(27)- 6'4 with deep speed, might leave LA to get paid

guys who could be camp invites with the hope they surprise and make plays(cheap depth)-

  • Kelvin Benjamin(28) 
  • Donte Moncrief(26)
  • Breshad Perriman(26)- played well to end the season for Browns, deep speed
  • Devin Funches(25)
  • Ryan Grant(28) - good in the slot
  • Bruce Ellington(28)- see above, more injury risk
  • Jermaine Kearse(29)
  • Chris Conely(27)
  • Martavis Bryant(27)
  • Phillip Dorsett(26)- a burner, modern day James Jett
  • Kevin White(27)

TE: 

Cook could walk for a major pay day, would like to sign Cook on a 2year deal-

  • Eric Ebron(26)- going get paid big, after a monster 2018 year
  • Tyler Eifert(28)- has talent, but too injury prone

RT:  

we can agree Brandon Parker is a project-

  • Ja'Wan James(27) - starting RT from Dolphins looking to get paid
  • Daryl Williams(27)- starting tackle from Panthers set to hit the market... 
  • Bobby Massie(30)- starting RT from the Bears, would be another chance to poach the Bears.. Could be a good stopgap to see if Brandon Parker develops
  • George Fant(26)- ties to Cable, maybe ready to handle being a RT?
  • Matt Feiler(27)- from Steelers with experience at RT
  • Ty Nsekhe(33)- old vet who played well at LT/RT. could be brought in to challenge and mentor Parker
  • Donovan Smith(26) former high pick who failed at LT, but looked better at RT
  • Cameron Fleming(26)- another experienced RT from Cowboys/Pats
  • Ty Sambrailo(26)- played well as Falcons RT
  • Seantrel Henderson(26)- starting Texans RT, missed entire season after he broke his ankle

DE:

Raiders need to improve the pass rush-

  • Jadevon Clowney(26)- going to demand a lot of Benjamins
  • Demarcus Lawerence(27)- see above
  • Trey Flowers(26)- great pass rusher, Pats have been cheap in the past
  • Frank Clark(26)- great class of DEs in free agency
  • Brandon Graham(31)-
  • Preston Smith(26)- stud in all aspects
  • Ezekiel Ansah(30)-
  • Dante Fowler(25)- potential type of pickup
  • Derrick Morgan(30)-
  • Margus Hunt(32)-
  • Chris Long(34)- legacy player who has great leadership

guys who could be brought in for depth in a unit that needs pass rush(only 13 sacks in 2018)

  • Randy Gregory(26)- character issues drives his value down low, but pressures the QB
  • Romeo Okwara(24)- broke out with 7 sacks last year
  • Kerry Hyder(28)- injured last year, but has had a solid career as a starter
  • Kony Ealy(27)- knows the system, he can turn it around
  • Benson Mayowa(28)- close to 5 sacks, he need more sacks
  • Dion Jordan(29)- low risk, still has untapped potential 

DT: we have Hurst and Hall as a young pair, and possibly Ellis coming back as NT. still be wise to invest in trenches, as our DL is still a weak link

Interior Stud Pass Rushers-

  • Grady Jarrett(26) - doubt we land him, similar to Hurst and going to demand big money
  • David Irving(26)- Injured in 2018, but is an elite player when healthy
  • Sheldon Richardson(28)- interior pass rusher, we had chances to sign him and passed

  • Clay Matthews(33)- might be on his last legs, but I could Gruden having interest
  • Eli Harold(25)- career derailed after he started kneeling, but the man can rush the passer
  • Aaron Lynch(26)- good pass rusher, would be a good depth
