Whew

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?

not yet, but they are trying to

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.

    • Geathers was having a great season last year under monachino before his neck injury I think he will be fine he needs to play more man to man.
    •   ^^^ ban this user!! ^^^
    • It was the only show I watched or listened to on ESPN. Now that they are no longer a team I will have no need to tune into ESPN at all.
    • I think you have done a very nice assessment of our teams progress and where we are right now.  Most of the teams improvement has come on the defensive side of the ball coming from additions and improvement from our young players.  The loss of Luck for the year and the hurried assimilation of Brissett to the lineup certainly has not helped the offense meet our preseason expectations.  I read where Doyle was second in the league in receptions among TE's before the Pittsburgh game.  A stat that blew me away actually.  Who knows what a healthy Luck and a better OL  would have done for Moncrief and the rest of the WR's.   I think you have to congratulate the coaches for this progress and continued improvement that we have seen from this team.  They have gotten better and that's what we are looking for.  It might be a lost season record wise but if you are looking at player and overall team development you have to be pleased with the great progress they have made this year.  No one is happy with the record but you can not ignore the overall improvements that have been achieved.  Everyone is looking forward to new coaches next year but this years staff has done some pretty impressive work teaching and improving the overall contributions of our players.  
    • That's just not the reality of how things work. Some players just don't pan out in the NFL. Look at Zach Banner, We drafted him round 4 and he was gone by the start of the season.
