Tagging Hightower is a no brainer for me.

I think getting Logan back is also key. I am very curious to see what tier he ends up in during FA. If he is in a lower tier, there is a decent chance he stays affordable and we can try and lock him up. Other than him the only guys I see as must re-signs are Marty and Branch.

Develin is a re-sign because no one else will want him IMO

Floyd I bet gets a good offer from another team because this is FFMD not reality.

Harmon is a guy that I am on the fence about, on the one hand he has been important, on the other he is stil just a back up (about 500 snaps this year to Devin and Patrick's 1000+) If someone pays him top 15 money I think we walk away. Another guy I am interested to see where he lands in FA, if he is shark tank he is gone but if he is low tier we got a shot.

I also think Long and Sheard see the influence of an inflated FFMD market because again, this isnt reality, and they have names people like.

Martellus Bennett should be brought back IMO but I'm not sure where I'd value him at. $5-7M per year would have to be his floor and ceiling I believe. The draft has depth if we move on from Bennett.

LeGarrette Blount I'm kind of indifferent on. He's been phenomenal for us and has turned into a reliable back. But I think it's time to move on.

RB Brandon Bolden is around mostly for ST reasons, we can add a guy equivalent to him without spending as much probably.

DT Alan Branch should come back, we are thin at DT. Probably only has a season or two at the most left in him, I think he ultimately finishes his career off with us.

FB James Develin is worth more to us than he is to others, paraphrasing Deadpulse. NE was third(I believe??) In most snaps using a FB. Tough dude that always gives max effort. Should get him on a team friendly deal.

WR Michael Floyd isn't worth paying what he'll command. Good talent but we're relatively deep at receiver.

FS Duron Harmon is a guy I'd love to bring back. I don't think he'll be too expensive , and Idk if we should rely on Jordan Richards. This is another position we need to discuss.

LB Dont’a Hightower tagged and signed, agreed right?

DE Chris Long I would rather bring back than Sheard just because of $$, Long has something left and can rotate on our DL.

LB Barkevious Mingo never got on the field and we were hurt at LB. Says a lot.

CB Logan Ryan will likely get a top contract, but he's valuable in our secondary. We have the cap to go and keep him.

TE Greg Scruggs couldn't play defense and evidently can't play offense either.

DE Jabaal Sheard is really an anomaly, not sure what my opinion on him is. But I know he'll get paid more for what he's done than what he will do.


Overall, I'd rank our top needs as follows...

LB, DL, RB, C, CB, S, G/T

When we talk about possible targets via draft or FA, we will use a code. I'm thinking either Pokémon or Harry Potter. I will have that spreadsheet for everyone involved today.

Unfortunately Cwood posted recently that FFMD has been shelved due to lack of interest from forums not us. That sucks
