    But I wonder... if we can get Vinny and Seau their rings... who else will come on board next year?

    It would have to be a near retirement or player on a team on the down swing...

    EDIT: Okay really bad first example... nevermind that one

    I like the general idea, but please, no Warren Sapp. And we are in good shape in the middle of the D line anyway.

    There are some veterans out there who are great people that haven't won anything, and it would be great to see them get a ring.

    True... Troy Vincent maybe? Don't know how long his recent signing was for.

    I wonder if in 3 or 4 years we could get Marvin Harrison :p

    You'll need Hochstein's permission.

    Seriously, what would we do with that fat tub of goo?

    Hate to be mean but he doesn't even crack our top 5 DLinemen. Has no position in the 3-4 and he's a jerk.

    I guess that was mean, but i think it's true.

    Heck no to Sapp. Just takes up space.

    Sapp has a ring anyway. Tampa over Oakland Super Bowl if memory serves.

    I've always thought that Jason Taylor would wind up in a Pats jersey before he retired. He's kinda young to fit in your scenario but he did hint at retiring earlier this year.

    If anything, I would rather have Tiki Barber than Martin come for a one year fling. Martin made a super bowl and could have won one if not for a certain coach jumping ship to the enemy, which Martin did also a year later, so he might have had his chance to stay but didn't.

    One name I can think of is Brian Dawkins. Not that he would leave Philly, but I see him as the NFC version of Rodney Harrison. Hardnosed player, I am sure we would welcome him with open arms here.

    Not necessarily for playing depth (though it turned out that way for Seau) but maybe also for leadership. He was a class act.

    I really respect Curtis Martin, but we need players that are at least ambulatory.
