Gentleman,

We're putting a nix in this mega-trade. We're in pretty much agreement that this affects the spirit of the game. There is just too many moving parts, and just way too many stipulations to make this work. If this were a situation in which there weren't that many steps needed to get this to work AND we had the majority of the staff of EVERY War Room been behind this trade then we might have considered allowing this to go through. This is just way too convoluted, and quite frankly not worth spending time discussion.

Any concerns or complaints should be sent to me through PM. I apologize for any inconvenience this places on you. Thanks for your time.

Free Agency is starting and we have room to go after 1, maybe 2 nice free agents. here is the list:

Tier One wrote:
WR Greg Jennings - CWood21
WR Dwayne Bowe - TheVillain112
WR Wes Welker - tylerdouglass
OT Jake Long - Desperado82
OG Andy Levitre - CWood21
DE Cliff Avril - drd23
OLB James Harrison - tylerdouglass
CB Brent Grimes - TheVillain112


Tier Two wrote:
RB Steven Jackson - tylerdouglass
TE Heath Miller - CWood21
OT Sebastian Volmer - CWood21
OT Sam Baker - Desperado82
LB Connor Barwin - TheVillain112
DE Dwight Freeney - TheVillain112
CB Sean Smith - drd23
CB Dominique Rogers-Cromartie - tylerdouglass


Tier Three wrote:
QB Alex Smith - CWood21
RB Michael Turner - CWood21
RB Shonn Greene - drd23
RB Reggie Bush - tylerdouglass
TE Dustin Keller - Desperado82
LB Brian Urlacher - TheVillain112
LB Shaun Phillips - tylerdouglass
DT Terrance Knighton - TheVillain112


Connor Barwin is in tier 2 so we need to keep that in mind when we make our offer to him

PM me and dsorc with any guys you are interested in, so we can see what the contract will look like and see if we want to make a move for them

On those lists, I think we should make a run at Bowe or Jennings for sure. I'd be okay with Knighton too, like AA said, but I wonder if he's the penetrator that we need.

Also, how did these players get assigned their tiers? I look at some of those names on tier 2 and Barwin doesn't really seem to fit, given the year that he had. Didn't I see somewhere where only 2 OLBs ranked lower this year?

If we can change them, I would recommend ratcheting them up a notch for the first of our targets. Wink


How much do you think McClendon is worth?

There seems to be slight bidding war for McLendon between us, Cleveland and Indianapolis. I don't think he's worth the 2M+ that it will take to get him. Specially when there's a good crop of DTs in the shark tank: Sammie Lee Hill, Alan Branch, Aubrayo Franklin, Ron Brace, Sedrick Ellis, Roy Miller, etc.

As to the free agents I would target Jennings, Barwin and Knighton. I think most teams that really need a WR will go after Bowe leaving less competition for Jennings.

I agree, will you send me contract offers for each one, keeping us under the cap, and if we need to we can cut a few players.

Someone who wants to write up a pitch for some of these guys and send it to me as well

I put in an offer on the two guys we have discussed, neither offer will break our bank or even really hurt us that bad, but still might be competitive for them

To give a brief explanation of how they're doing FA, they've changed the rules so as to prevent people just backloading contracts irresponsibly. I can take care of the creative accounting to make the numbers fit the rule. The other big change is that FA have a target Average Annual Value (total worth of contract divided by number of years). If you're off by 10/20/30% (for Tier 1/2/3) of that target AAV the offer gets thrown away. So far, it does not look like they'll tell us what the target AAV is for each FA. I think it would be fair for people to not only comment or suggest what FAs we should target but also what they think the AAV should be. If you guys like this I'll post the AAV I'm thinking of for the guys mentioned in the thread. Not sure if people would be worried about putting the numbers out there or if we should keep it to PMs.

Also not that since only offers near the target AAV are kept, the value of the pitches will be higher than in years past.
