Johnson and Avril are out of our price range. Freeney would be nice, at the right price, but I don't want Osi anywhere near Atlanta. He's not a good guy and his play has totally fallen off.

Our price range shouldn't have a cap. That being said we shouldn't drop stacks on FAs. If we get them for a solid price then we should pursue..

^ We had a price range cap for Charles Johnson. When the bidding went over that limit, we withdrew.

With underachievers like Ray Edwards and Dunta Robinson, you better believe TD has a limit on the contracts he will offer to FAs.

I hope we don't bring him Avril or Osi.

I agree, I am not a fan of Avril. Osi is ok but I think his better days are gone. I'd rather have Freeney or Richard Seymore

I want Kruger. He's young and a beast. Do you think we could be switching to a 3-4?

True, but if I remember correctly, Carolina offered him a huge contract. The only guys I want are Johnson or Freeney.

This is something I asked in the other topic. We have no pass-rushing DE's. We're either gonna pick up a bunch in FA and the draft, or we're headed toward a 3-4. Just my opinion though, I understand Scar has a lot of insider info with ATL.

Count Johnson out. I think we could make the switch the 3-4. Only question is how would the LB's go. Inside, would it be Spoon/Nicholas or Spoon/Dent?

Spoon and Dent would be inside I'd think. We'd have to pick up some 3-4 OLBs though

Alright thanks for the input. I think Kroy could hang there for a year while we get a rookie OLB. Get another stop gap and than beef up the Dline.

I think Avril is a good option for le. I think most of the 1st rounders this year are better suited at RE if Im correct since LE needs to stop the run a lil more. Is Johnson a RE or left? Kruger and kroy sound good if we go 34. Why isn't anyone talking about Jones from UGA ? He's a monster and can play anywhere. And Im sure were in good with the Drs who cleared him to play. He and Mingo are the 2 best pass rushers this year and both can play anywhere.

Cliff Avril is absolutely horrible against the run, not to mention he played on a stacked defensive line, so he is a huge bust candidate.

we never could even get an offer in. Johnson was signed within hte 3 day original team offers only period.
