There's still a bunch of guys w some potential out on the street that I'd love for us to make some small $, short terms offers to in hopes of landing some:
I know Hodges seems to be a forum favorite. I'd love to make a run at Compton, though. He is not anything spectacular. But he is still only 27 and has experience not just starting as an ILB in the 3-4, but also leading a defense and calling plays. I know he didn't "grade out" well as per places like PFF, but having watched him play he is still a guy I would want on my team. Barrington i had some hopes for when with GB and he never truly panned out. I wouldn't mind kicking the tires on him if Compton or Hodges were no goes.
I know Roby-Coleman is another forum fave, but i also wouldn't mind seeing if Pagano and company couldn't squeeze some of the untapped potential out of either Boykin or Gilbert. Boykin was a heck of a slot guy in Philly initially and then he just seemed to struggle there and in Pitt lately. Gilbert would just be a guy I'd love to see what the staff could do with and if they could ever get him to reach any of that potential that made him a 1st round pick way back when.
With re-signing Butler, safety is a bit less of a need. But McDonald is still young and experienced and I would love adding him and allowing Butler to help in the slot at times or allow Geathers to play in the box more if we went to a 3 Safety set, etc.
I still hope we are not completely done w free agency and that we add a few pieces of the scrap heap as free agency winds down
