There's a proliferation of threads about making plays for free agents and guys like Olsen. In this era where you have to pay guys big bucks and give up draft picks, it's not a smart solution. It worked with Wes Welker and Moss because of a weak draft and how special the two players were, but I don't see anything like that available. Plus, Welker is cheap. On the draft page here, some of us have been projecting drafts, and it's possible for the Patriots to take 4 players who are being projected as first rounders by the experts (i.e. some players have first round value but are being dropped because of the sheer number of great players available). As part of the draft game exercise, I made these picks based on trades all made according to the value chart: 32. OLB Brandon Graham 33. DE Jared Odrick 45. ILB Brandon Spikes 60. WR Arrelious Benn 71. G Joe Asamoah 99. WR Mardy Gilyard 119. TE Colin Peek This is just an example. But the draft is stocked this year. There is no reason to go after restricted free agents with big salary demands. None at all.
