Yeah. Does this mean that corner and ILB are the two positions we are looking at in the draft most?

I think every defensive position is on the table to draft, and all defensive positions are on the table In every round.

It could be unless there is another signing out there

Great news! Starting to come together a bit. Can we still get Hightower, or did the Pats re-sign him?

We still need a pass-rusher. 13 sacks and two years ain't that great

It seems like a bit of an overpay, but that's the market in FA.

Well he's not really exactly a Cornerstone type of player. He's good but we're still pass rush deficient.

We have a LB core now!

Not too bad.  In the context of the past two signings along with, hopefully, a pass rusher in the first, even Mingo makes some sense.  Unlike with Grigson, you can sense some sort of plan.

That's quite a bit of money for someone who only had 5 sacks last year

No this has nothing to do with the draft, I like the move, but we'll still go EDGE in round 1. We have to. Sheard/Simon/Tim Williams would be solid plus Mingo and a 2nd or 3rd round EDGE rusher

When you are as bad rushing the passer as we are; you have to throw everything at the board and hope something sticks.

 

We are not done. Wouldn't surprise me one bit if our first two picks were still outside linebackers.

Sheard was a stud in NE year before this one. He had some issues with the staff, etc. He could come in and ball for us and put up 9-10 sacks IMO

That's a lot of money....but he's a good player. No doubt they overpaid, but they've got some stop gappers now. Allows whoever they draft in the coming years to have some time to develop.

so the last 2 lb signings are both tough against the run AND can rush the passer......if Langford and Henry Anderson are back to normal next year the front 4-5 could be pretty stout....just need to solidify the NT.

Now sign Hightower, Levy, and Claiborne. Draft Takk McKinley, Taco Charlton, or Tim Williams in RD1 now and we'll be set. Levy and Claiborne could be had on 1 year deals.

It is but there's just so much money chasing the talent this year. If you want to sign a top 30 guy , you need to overpay . 12 million $ guards were a pipe dream 10 hours ago.

    •   Denver won a superbowl with Brock Osweiler (plus a living corpse Manning). Osweiler (and Siemian both) looked a lot better under Kubiak's hand than any QB under O'Brians hand since he left Boston. Not to mention, O'Brian replaced Fitzpatrick with Hoyer, who was worse than his predecessor, then replaced Hoyer with Osweiler who also was worse than his predecessor. Imo, O'Brian couldn't install a system for his lesser talented QB's, which would've helped them use their strengths.   On the other hand, Pagano is a secondary coach. Let's see what he has done there? The Colts (Grigson) didn't draft a single player in the secondary in the first 3 years. Of the free agent additions: Davis become a first team all pro. Mike Adams made the pro bowl multiple times and played his best football over age 30 in Indy. Dwight Lowery had a decent year here, one of his best. Greg Toler wasn't good, but he played his best football in Indy. The Laron Landry project failed, but it failed more due to not being able to stay healthy, than production. (I didn't particularly like him though, but I can't say he was terrible when healthy.) Darius Butler become a decent player, having his best years of his carreer in Indy. Then, when the Colts finally decided to draft in the secondary: D'Joun Smith turned out to be a bust. Health issues again. Geathers became a fine player - sadly, health issues there again.  For T.J. Green, Hooker and Wilson the jury is still out. And they found Rashan Melvin off the streets. This is not bad at all. Most players, who stayed healthy, played their best in Indy. Of course talent matters. You can't make pro-bowlers out of journeymen.     Pagano's record is 15-7 at home and 13-14 on the road against coaches ahead of him. That's not a bad record considering that coaches ahead of him usually have better rosters under their control. (The numbers might be off by one or two here or there, due to coaching changes, etc. I might counted - or not counted - a game played against a previous coach. I also counted games against Harbaugh and Kubiak supposing they'd be in top10 being active. Anyway the true record must be close to the above.).   All in all, I think Pagano is right there where he belongs to after 3 winning plus 2 down seasons. Middle of the pack. But ..... I think, based on "potential", he is better than his current value. He is a top10 coach on my list.   I know many of you guys strongly disagree, but that's my honest opinion. There are better coaches in the NFL than him. But not many. So I really wish Pagano will prove himself in 2017. Aaand, if he fails and will be fired, then I cross my fingers that there will be at least one guy available of those "not many". (Yes, despite my belief that he is a fine coach, I agree that he has to go if he fails to prove himself. Because that's the right decision. But honestly, I'll be scared if that happens. It won't be easy to find a better guy. And there is always a chance to be ChipKelly-d....)  
    • Banner was up to 260Lbs He was at 253lbs for the combine with a goal of 245lbs. I thought that's what I read.  Walker adding 7 so he's back up over 240.    Wilson at 207lbs jumps out to me. We heard about "football shape" for him. He was 211lbs at the combine. You'd think him being in better shape would make him a blink quicker. If he's a little faster we may not get him. I'm excited to see this kid with Hooker on the back end. If we can get Geathers back we could have something.   
    •   And, wittness such a weird offseason. Giving up a fortune for Mahomes, letting Poe (+Howard) go then sign Bennie Logan for similar cash? Let Charles, Knile Davis go then sign C.J. Spiller? And finally, let Maclin go and not even try to do something with the WR depth. (There was Decker available for example....)   These remind me a bit of what happened in Philly when Chip Kelly took full control. He let McCoy go then signed Murray and Matthews to huge contracts, etc. Weird moves.   Reid is not Kelly, the old man is proven and good. But still.... something doesn't feel right for me there.
    • Even though this is Camp weight [nothing to get riled over] there are a few players that intrigued me weight wise. Hooker, Woods(23lbs is alot of weight), just to name a few
    •   Yes,   I noticed that too.      And no, he's not.     He even a dmitted as much in a recent interview.   Says he lost 15+ and has gained back 10-12.    Thinks he'll be good to go for the start of the season,   but there are so many questions left unanswered.....
