    OK, the draft is over. We've re-signed our own. We've picked up some useful free agents.

    It seems that the following areas still could benefit from a veteran addition by a signing or a trade.

    1) outside linebacker or passrusher
    I still suspect that Burgess will be back. Somehow, I would think that he could beat out one of Ninkovich or Crable for a roster spot.

    2) running back
    I see Green-Ellis as useless, since he didn't even play much when we had two injuries. The time of Morris could also be over. There is no NEED to bring in someone, but almost anyone would be an upgrade over Green-Ellis. I think that a short-yardage specialist or a fullback would both help the team. If a healthy general purpose back is brought in as a backup, then both Morris and Green-Ellis could be cut. We really only need four running backs.

    3) quarterback
    We can always consider a veteran as our #2 or #3. Obviously, this isn't a high priority.
    ===============

    This is a very short list. Our roster is stacked! We have both solid starters and solid depth. And we have the best GM, HC, DC and OC in the business. Unfortunately, one person is all of those.

    I'll take Jared Allen as our Pass Rusher

    Adrian Peterson as our Running Back

    Peyton Manning as our Backup Quarterback

    Can we do this?

    I'd tell B-Jeepers where you park your car, but I want him on the team. :snob:

    Safety and CB, I look for at least one more veteran signing each.

    Yes, bring back Burgess (I wonder where I've heard that before?) - just don't expect the mighty Ninko to go by the wayside easily (or at all for that matter).

    I expect at least one more O-lineman, probably two.

    Sure, sure.

    We'll bring in the usual training camp fodder at corner, safety and offensive line.

    I also expect the mighty Ninko to make the team.

    I was referring to bringing in veterans with the intent of them making the team and upgrading the team.

    Patience, once we know what's happening with Thomas I expect NE will find some castoff we've never heard of and he'll turn into a stud OLB (he may even be here already). As for RB and OL, it's happened before, and who was that Safety everybody was so high on last season?

    I hate it when that happens. Mixing up the laptop with the man-sized TV dinner will always end poorly. ;)
