Free Agents To Consider: Offense

1,190 posts in this topic

This "thread per player" is out of control and we've been receiving a lot of complaints. As Free Agency heats up, let's try to keep it here.

Thanks.

So, what about Satele? Does he have anything to offer?

The Colts o line wasn't that good and he was cut. No thanks. Would rather keep Gino and bring in someone else to compete.

Maybe.... Alex Mack?

I'm joking

It's like people dont even put in the effort to review the person though. I honestly think our line could get worse with Satele in the line up. I feel if Michael Oher was on another team and we didn't pay much attention to him, someone would be out there saying we should try to pick him up now.

Brian De La Puente or Evan Deitrich Smith - that is a better question. I do know the saints are in pretty bad shape and the packers will have less cap after a deal with Raji. Haven't heard anything whether the packers are committed to bringing evan back.

 He could be solid back up center but he wasn't really that good for  The Colts as their starting center and he has trouble staying healthy.

Jared Veldheer might be off the market close to agreeing a 5 year 55 million with 23 guranteed. WOW

 but he still wants to test his worth on the market.

Can't say I am surprised, the Raiders have TONS of cap space so that was only a matter of time.

Does that set the floor for Monroe or the ceiling?

Update on #Raiders & Jared Veldheer: He’s going to take his decision into the weekend, weigh his options and the market. Nothing imminent.

monroe is most def a better tackle and now with maybe veldheer getting 9 million per it might take 10 to 11 which i don't see happen for monroe.

As you just posted, it's not an official agreement yet, but I don't see how he doesn't take that offer.  That kills us for the Monroe market as well.

Well if the deal is correct, that's 11 million a year for Veldheer. What does Miami throw at Monroe? At this point I think the Ravens should make a play for Anthony Collins from Cincy

yeah miami already came out and said they'll paid whatever to get monroe maybe even way overrrrrrpaying lie 58 million or 60 million which takes us out of the play for him.

Oh missed that lol, although I don't think we would lure him away by paying him less. We might want to call up Collins or Albert this Saturday and talk to their agents.

and Honestly, if that is what it takes to keep Monroe, I hope Ozzie doesn't sign him for that. Can't have that many cap crippling contracts for a few players even though Monroe is great.

Usually that'd be true, but remember the raiders have 70 million in cap space.  So their numbers are going to be bigger, really the worry is miami.

The market on the NFL will not be the same as in Oakland, oakland could pay 25 million this season and still lead the NFL in cap space.

Yeah but that sets the asking price for Monroe, as if it wasn't already extraordinary.

I never though Veldheer would get that money.  Thats crazy money.

James Jones is the only WR worth looking at in FA, also had his best year last year ( injuries moving him up the chain) He is a vet and probably pretty cheap.

 

edit: Emmanuel Sanders actually could be an awesome pick up but he might be looking for a big pay day. Also comming off his best season.

 

Both were making about 2.5mil. We could cover that easily and probably get some decent production.

I like James Jones a lot. He's not going to be a great number one or two receiver ever, but he's a very hard worker, high character guy who could come in and help mentor the younger players. Fairly decent possession receiver. I'd imagine he also wouldn't be terribly expensive. It's not the splash I'd want (Hakeem Nicks), but it would be a very Ozzie like move minus him being an UFA.

The contract details are inaccurate, and there was no such offer made to Veldheer.

this is the source that put out the Veldheer contract . and he's applogizing on twitter. but there was an offer but not that much money.

Does anyone else want Jeff Cumberland?  He's young, good size and speed, good blocker, and should be cheap.  We need a number 2 TE and he should be an upgrade over Ed Dickson.
