BRJ I dont know if we persue either. We are in salar cap prison. The more feasible of the two is Riely. but Hardy is set to make bank this offseason.

Riley wants to stay in Philly. I don't think he goes anywhere. Hardy wants to get PAID son. No way that we can do that.

Greg Hardy is going to be incredibly expensive and the Lions currently have to make cuts to get under the cap.

What kind of contract would you give Hardy?

Hardy is pure fantasy land unfortuntely, but I unlike everyone else I think we will make pretty decent moves in FA. Last year I said the same thing. Trust me we will sign one to two pretty big FAs

Don't want Hardy. He's a great player, but I'd rather just keep Jason Jones and Ansah as the starting DE's (for likely less money combined might I add).

Also don't want Riley Cooper. He's just not worth the money he'll likely get.

They'll be able to make moves, but it's hard to speculate on that until they open up the cap room. Right now we're just talking fantasy if we speculate about big time names or upper tier FA's.

I am hoping that we clear enough space to bring in Verner and Bernard Pollard. Verner is a legit #1 cornerback. Pollard has experience with both Quin and Verner which should help. Pollard also started for the Ravens when they won the superbowl and Austin was their DB coach.

Pollard is a journeyman for some reason.. Talented player, no doubt but there has to be a reason he doesn't stick anywhere. I'd prefer a long term solution.

I would love it if we could sign Jarius Byrd. It will cost the Bills too much to franchhisse him two years in a row. I think he would be a big improvement over Delmas.
