    Mallet's a FA, correct? Do you think he'll be re-signed, or could you see us making a play for someone like McCown?

    The only time we needed a backup QB Mallet showed he can handle the job. I'd like to keep him. Honestly though it's going to depend on money. If Mallet prices himself too high they won't chase him

    I'd be fine with Mallett returning, but if he wants to go somewhere with more likelihood of playing time, McCown would be a good backup for Flacco. I'd rather pay him the vet minimum, or even a million or two, vs a rookie. The cost savings doesn't justify the risk, plus then you don't have to use a pick on a QB since they need depth at other positions.

    I expect McCown to be a hot commodity. He would be an upgrade for a few teams and I don't think he has to take league minimum. Too many bad teams with too much cap space

    Re: 2017 Free Agency

    jeffery is a real #1. he might not have a high catch % but he is a guy that defensive coordinators have to scheme for. i watched lots of bears games over the last few years and when healthy jeffery is a stud.
    he is also a huge red zone threat. if he wasnt injured i thin he would be getting dez money but i dont think we can still afford him

    I agree. And of course, it is relative.

    On Atlanta or Dallas? Jeffery isn't the #1.

    On Baltimore? He's easily the #1 and the top go-to guy on offense.

    Reckon, I won't have much to say in here for the next four weeks, so just carrying over my last thought from the former thread...

    Many question marks and needs, but not a lot of projected capital. Certainly, not a lot in relation to other needy teams.

    I don't expect anything particularly needle-moving once the league year starts (unless it involves a trade).
    Not saying it won't happen, I'm just not expecting it.

    Agreed.

    It's going to be business as usual, thankfully. Ozzie is most likely going to make a move in the informal second round of free agency like he does almost every year.

    Tramon Williams and Sam Shields, those are two blast from the past names.

    There are some retreads in that list Wicked, but as you eluded to there is also some meat on the bone.

    I think this team can create plenty of cap space without damaging it. Zuttah is addition by subtraction in himself. There is no way they can expect Webb to stay healthy another season. Pitta looks like he's running in mud and can't block for shit. The ONLY reason you even consider keeping Pitta is his rapport with Flacco, but if someone like Graham becomes available? Fuck that.

    Wallace very much depends on who else is brought in. For example, would you rather have Wallace and Pitta or Torrey and Graham. Those are the types of decisions you have to make.
