    Ravor usually does an article/spreadsheet near the end of the year and does the figures for the potential/likely cuts.
    Yeah my mistake, your right, we'd save only 4.65 million cutting those players (and that's before any guaranteed money that may be there that I don't know about).

    Birk has 700 k in bonus to account for next year, Williams has 400 k, and Jameel actually has 1.2!

    Don't forget about Ray Lewis possibly retiring either btw. We could save 3.5 million from that.

    Re: Way Too Early 2013 Draft/FA Thread: Fixing the Defense

    Changing the subject a little here.

    Has anyone considered the possibility of signing Martellus Bennett next season? He is likely to be a FA, unless the Giants extend him? Dennis Pitta is proving to be a solid fourth round pick, but is he really good enough to be that guy? Dickson is proving that he really isn't a great compliment to Pitta, and I think getting a guy like Bennett could really help us, he could split snaps with Pitta or both be on the field at the same time. Bennett is an amazing blocker, and would be a great 3rd down target for Flacco, he would also be an enormous end zone threat, which we don't really have atm.

    Kruger- Will get paid more than he's worth by another team.
    Reed- Likely franchised
    CWill- Bye, don't let the door hit you on your way out
    Ellerbe- If the price is right.

    Kruger - possibly, but it is going to be a tough market for him as a pass rusher (Cliff Avril & Connor Barwin).
    Reed - If they Franchise Flacco...can't use it on Reed.
    Cary - I too think that they will let him walk.
    Ellerbe - He'll be re-signed.

    Huge fan of Stedman Baily, possibly in the 3rd round if we're lucky. He would offer something this offense is missing.

    I was just gonna say this Leach! lol...He'd be great value i think in the 3rd round, guys like him are drive extenders in the slot, i think that's an element we are missing, not to mention he'd be another deep threat.

    I also continue to like what i see from Florida LB Jonathan Bostic, Kevin Minter impressed me in coverage yesterday as well even though he got a couple penalties he ran well down the field with Arkansas standout WR Cobi Hamilton one play and only got a penalty because he wasnt looking for the ball.

    I know the CJ Mosely train is loading up lol, and im on that train as well but when i look at how dominate Louis Nix and Jonathan Jenkins looked yesterday i wonder if grabbing one of those guys in the 1st and looking at possibly Minter or Ogletree in the 2nd or Bostic in the 3rd.

    Kapron Lewis-Moore was really impressive last night against USC.

    Ertz looked pretty good last night as well with his QB finally putting the ball above his knees FFS.
    He looks faster than Eifert. Still not convinced on the blocking though...need to watch more.

    What's everyone's take on Cornellius "Tank" Carradine? Would he be a good fit our system?

    Ziggy Ansah out of BYU is starting to get 1st-2nd round attention, which annoys me. At any rate, he's the most versatile front 7 guy I've seen in college maybe ever...largely b/c defensive guys don't become versatile until the NFL.

    He looks like the kind of cat that could do whatever Pees would ask...bring pressure on 3rd and long, cover a TE, get out in the flat on RBs, and of course, set the edge. Probably makes some mean waffles too!

    McShay: The biggest issue is that there's just not a lot of offensive skill players in this draft. It's not a good "TV draft." NFL teams want great talent at every single position, but a vast majority of teams are not in dire straits and looking for a quarterback and would rather see the depth where it is in this class: on the offensive and defensive lines.

    Which is the deepest position group?


    McShay: Defensive line is the deepest group in 2013. You could split hairs over defensive ends or defensive tackles, but if you're a team looking for a defensive lineman, you should be fired up over this group right now. As I count now, nine of the top 15 and 17 of the top 40 players in this draft are on the defensive line.

    If you talk to front office personnel, they would agree that the defensive linemen in this draft are really an impressive group. You have the elite guys, but you have guys late in the first round, early in the second who can become a centerpiece on your defensive line for many years.

    Also, there's a whole lot of variety here, too. You have your prototypical defensive tackles such as Lotulelei, Sylvester Williams and Sheldon Richardson. You have your space-eating interior defensive linemen such as Johnathan Hankins and Johnathan Jenkins. You have your speed-rushing ends such as Moore and Barkevious Mingo. And then, you have your more complete defensive ends such as Bjoern Werner and Sam Montgomery.

    Basically, it's take your pick.

    Count me as a fan of Gerald Hodges. Saw him in action back against Indiana. Made a few stellar plays.
