Free Agency Coaching Connections

10 posts in this topic

Just some coaching connections ideas in terms of free agency - who our coaches have previously worked with that are hitting the market.

Chuck Pagano (former Ravens DC, Secondary coach)

CB Cary Williams

DE/LB Paul Kruger

LB Dannell Ellerbe

Bruce Arians (former Steelers OC)

RB Rashard Mendenhall

WR Mike Wallace

Harold Goodwin (Former Steelers OL QC)

C Doug Legursky

OG Ramon Foster

OT Max Starks

Gary Emanuel (former Purdue DC)

DT Kawann Short (Draft)

OLB Shaun Phillips

OLB Anthony Spencer

Jeff FitzGerald (former Ravens, Bengals LB coach)

LB Rey Maualuga

LB Manny Lawson

LB Keith Rivers

DE/LB Michael Johnson

DE/LB Antwan Barnes

Marwan Maalouf (former Browns special quality control coach)

WR Josh Cribbs

Greg Manusky (former 49ers and Chargers DC)

LB Manny Lawson

DE/LB Antwan Barnes

DE/LB Shaun Phillips

CB Antoine Cason

NT Aubrayo Franklin

NT Isaac Sopoaga

DT/DE Vaughn Martin

DT/DE Ricky Jean Francois

S Dashon Goldson

Charlie Williams (former UNC WR coach)

WR Brandon Tate

Not necessarily saying we should or will sign any of these guys, but interesting to see who our coaches have worked with that are FA's. Particularly interesting seeing Antwan Barnes, Shaun Phillips and Manny Lawson appear more than once.

This may be the best post that I've ever seen on a forum. Just the fact that you knew where these guys were and what players they coached.

I don't know if you look these up but, these connections are an outstanding thought. Not saying that I want everybody that's listed. LOL but just the fact that they are there would give us a heads up or opportunity to get them if needed.

Nice work!

Would love to add Goldson and Spencer for sure, possibly Cary Williams as he played well under Pagano last year.

Oh it took a fair bit of research! But I had some spare time on Christmas Eve, thought it'd be interesting to search who might be a target...big free agency period coming up!

    • Imagine both Reuben Foster and Takk fall to our pick in the first and second respectively... Do you take them?   Here's Takk benchpressing 230lbs 24 times with his torn labrum:  
    • I was watching the jets vs Seahawks game week 3 I think. Ryan Fitzpatrick threw 5 interceptions but got the ball back one more time. One of my friends said "I'll bet you ryan fitzpatrick's next pass will be an interception." Then I said " I'll bet you Jordy Nelson for AJ Green". We shook on it then two plays later Fitz threw his 6th pick to Richard Sherman I think. In my head I thought there was no way Fitz would throw another pick haha. Anyways, I gave him Jordy but ended up trading him back for Ajayi when Ajayi was hot and Jordy had a 3 week slump. Finished the season 16-0 thanks to Jordy 
    • My dream pick would be Rueben Foster. There's a small chance he falls to us. If not him I want Taco
    • Myles Garrett would be MY dream pick but he won't last past the first 15 minutes.    Of guys I think might be available to us, there are like 4 or 5 I would like.  I think Solomon Thomas, Derek Barnett, Jamal Adams, Reuben Foster, or Zach Cunningham might be there and any one of those guys would help from Day 1. 
    •   I said something like you can have an elite guy like a Brady, Rogers, Brees, Ben, Luck, etc. Or a guy like Dalton or Cousins who aren't anywhere near those guys, but are still franchise QB's capable of leading a team to a big playoff run.   And we need a couple dominant EDGE rushers, a couple all around ILB's, a run stuffing NT, and a top tier corner.   We can get that in FA and the draft with Melvin Ingram, AJ, Bouye, Brandon Williams, Tim Williams, Jarred Davis. Just worried Davis wont be there in the 2nd, but there's a handful of ILB's I like in the 2nd-4th range, then JRM in the 4-5-6 range.
