Some good stuff for us to digest as we begin looking forward to the offseason and what we need to accomplish...

Bottom line is don't expect anything from the free agent market to come to town, so JJ better hit a homerun with the draft.

A home run is not needed...just slight improvements.

The current list of Free Agent tackles is plenty long and I am sure there are several players better than Doug Free and Mckenzie Bernadeau.

Heck, Parnell did a good job coming off the bench for Free at the end of the season, so who knows with another offseason to develop the kid.

Given JJ's propensity for 'value', he cannot afford to start trading down. He needs to hit on any offensive lineman with their first pick. That's what I was more referring to.

First thing - time to start getting those renegotiated contracts worked on. A few things are clear to me based on the information gathered in the article;

1. - Doug Free isn't going anywhere.
2. - Jay Ratliff needs to get and stay healthy. A $6.5M cap his isn't going to be palatable.
3. - Both of these two items are going to make it tough to franchise Anthony Spencer... but that MUST take place.

The draft is crucial this year. To get to the $121M cap is going to require jettisoning some useful players. Cannot afford to miss in the draft.
