He's gonna play his way out of our budget after this contract ends.

Not quite Danelle Ellerbe and Alan Branch but Connor and Jenkins should be ok hopefully with good health. Connor could be our new AP. When first signed AP was very good. We'll see.

not to be a debby downer but i've heard nothing good about him, basically a younger chase blackburn. Much would of rathered durant or smith or dansby. This defense is still looking terrible. The best defense have good linebackers. Our linebackers are going to get eaten alive in the passing game.

The best defenses have good pass-rushers. That being said, we don't have much in that department right now, either. We need Reese to have another big-time draft like he did in '07.

Bringing in these FAs with "potential" is seriously like adopting a sick puppy. Don't get too attached guys, they'll be moving on soon.

Let me give you my personal opinion, on what I think has happened.
It all started with the release of the coke machine in Brandon Jacobs.

Thats what we need though... We need to stay flexible with the cap... why gamble on a big contract to some of the other guys when you can give a one year deal to these guys?

IMO they are buying themselves time with younger players to see if they are the answer by not committing longterm... this way when/if some of these cheap vets tank, we bid adieu with no ramifications

Pierce was a pro bowl linebacker, and mitchell was also very good.

Mitchell was close to a journeyman and Pierce when we won a superbowl was only good.

On this signing: I like this signing also. He's got good instincts and can be a great 2 down LB.
