Free Agents we can afford

Other than our own players, Oz has a tendency to go after the smaller guys, and is usually rewarded handsomely.

Two years ago it was Leach, Pollard, and Mckinnie. Who were all critical components in our SB run. All came for cheap

Last year it was Grahm, Jacoby, and JTuck(who was technically a FA). We got an all pro KR/PR, a kicker for the next ten years, and a starting CB.

Well, none of these guys were big names, yet they produced so much. So who's Oz going to get this year?

Possible targets.
Demetress Bell.
While an injury risk, he's a good Olinemen when healthy. Our doctors are some of the best in the NFL. They helped out Yanda, and allowed Ray, Suggs, and Ngata to return quickly. He's a good player who will prob come cheap.

Roy Miller. DT/NT Tampa Bay
An unsung hero on the Bucs D. Was a huge part of a great Run D. No one knows who he is due to him not being a big name. Well, Pollard wasn't a big name either. Most importantly, he is YOUNG. 26, he's about to hit his prime. I think he's a top priority on Ozzies big board, and TB prob won't bring him back bc of McCoy, and past injury history.

Sammie Lee Hill DT.
Same as above. I think he could be a great DT, and he's a better pass rusher than Miller. Another potential cheap target

Connor Barwin. LB Houston Texans
You knew this was coming. Another Texan.
After a down year, and the emergence of Merculis, I think he's on the market. IMHO, I don't think he was having a down year, he was rather getting overshadowed by Watt. I don't think a team will overpay for him due to lack of production(see Jacoby Jones, Pollard, arguably the best SS and KR/PR in the game, weren't producing in Houston). While he will most likely be a moderately price free agent, I think Ozzie is a candidate to get him. A replacement for Kruger is in order, and it's not all that unrealistic. Players like
Kruger
Dayrl Smith
Wheeler
Phillips
Barnett
and Lawson
Will be pursued more than Barwin.



And Lastly
Kevin Ogeltree WR.
Lack of production bc of Bryant and Austin. Add to the fact that Romo was his QB and we have a low profile WR with high amounts of talent. I wouldn't mind picking him up

Post other FA that come to mind below

According to PFF Connar Barwin was one of the worst OLBs this season besides that im down to bring in some DT to win that job over Cody!

Yes, and if I'm correct, Jacoby also sucked and so did Pollard. Now look at us

Apparently we've shown a bit of interest in Ricky Jean Francois (NT)

You mean the backup NT on the ninersz?

Yeah that would be him. Apparently he'll be cheap, and I'm sure he can't be any worse than Cody and Kemo, so hey, I'm down.

Sammie Lee Hill is criminally underrated and could start for most teams, he's exactly the kind of NT with athleticism we need. Could probably play 3-4 DE.

Erin Henderson is underrated too for a complete 3 down linebacker, and unlike Ellerbe he can cover and can stay healthy.

No to [color=#282828][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif]Ogeltree. We need a tall big bodied guy for the red zone. Other than that we need to adress DT/NT. Than lets see how our linebacker situation is[/font][/color]

I'd kill to have Roy Miller or Sammie Lee Hill here. Love the way both of them play, but I am not happy you made this thread with those names, Irrev. Not happy at all.

I like the idea of bringing in Casey Hampton...first to annoy Steelers and second to push Cody and possibly help his development. plus he will be cheap

The fact that they're going to implode is annoying enough to them.
Our goal is to get younger lol. Only reason why I don't want Hampton. Vet min at most for him

yall think Mr. Hat slip is that good?
[/quote]
A good enough slot WR yes. Boldin to the outiside isn't bad. Ogeltree also provides some speed. I wouldn't mind if he joined us. Boldin is a WR who can go everywhere. Ogeltree also has better hands than Jacoby Jones

I would love to get younger too, but younger usually means pricier or draft...Also Ozzie is well known for bringing in veteran stop gaps, especially on the DL, that make solid contributions for cheap ala Corey Redding, Trevor Pryce, Kemo...I think another guy who may fit that mold is Richard Seymour and I think he could be a very effective player for us.

I thought about that the other day as well. He was the 34 DE prototype, surely he has a year or 2 left at a skill level where he can win at the point of attack in the run game.

Seymour and his ego that's larger than his IQ? Good player, but IDK

We picked up Kemo last year and he easily took Cody's job. Cody needs to get off the donuts and get on the treadmill.
