Coming Into A No-Cap Year
NEEDS GOING INTO THE OFFSEASON PRESUMING THE STEPS BELOW
This isn't a large wish list compared to other years. Obviously, we have free agency, trades and the draft to fill these needs.
I think the biggest effect of the no-cap year will be the additional flexibility in working out loing-term extensions for Brady, Welker and Moss. I suspect that it would help the negotiations with Brady for him to know that his two top weapons were staying for awhile.
A) starting RG plus perhaps a developmental guard
B) pass-rushing DE/OLB or two or three
C) starting TE and perhaps a #3 TE (extending Watson would work for me)
D) #3 wide receiver
E) running back
F) a shut-down corner (extending Bodden would work for me)
QB Brady, Hoyer, Stanback
WR Moss, Welker, Edelman, Tate, Aiken
RB Maroney, Taylor, Morris, Faulk, Green-Ellis
TE Baker, Agnone
OL Light, Mankins, Koppen, Connolly, Vollmer, Kaczur, LeVoir, Ohrnberger, Bussey
DL Warren, Wilfork, Wright, Brace, Pryor, Burgess
OLB Banta-Cain, Thomas, Ninkovich, Woods, Crable
ILB Mayo, Guyton, McKenzie, Alexander
CB Wilhite, Butler, Springs, Wheatley, Arrington
S Meriweather, McGowan, Chung, Sanders, Slater, Lockett
SPECIALISTS (3 including one opening)
ERFA's and ERFA's
I presume that there is no point worring about a few bucks. We will keep all our ERFA's and RFA's. We usually do anyway. That bring back Guyton, Lockett, Gost, Mankins, Woods and Connolly.
I presume a franchise tag of Wilfork, or a contract extension.
I expect us to re-sign Faulk and Burgess. I expect us to say good-bye to Neal and Green. Of course, others may be replaced or traded before the season starts.
