There have been a few stories this week about how big of an impact Janoris Jenkins and Snacks Harrison have had. We all know how big of a haul last offseason was but it got me thinking about Jerry Reese's best acquisitions from his entire tenure. Obviously, this can be a bit subjective but here is my list (just ordered by year):

1. Michael Boley
2. Chris Canty
3. Antrel Rolle
4. Martellus Bennett
5. Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie
6. Shane Vereen
7. Jonathan Casillas
8. Janoris Jenkins
9. Damon Harrison
10. Olivier Vernon

Reese's arguably best three acquisitions (9 offseasons) all came in the same year. It really puts into perspective how impressive last offseason was.

What this shows me is that he goes for a quality signing on the defense side of the ball. I mean, Boley, Rolle, Canty, DRC, Casillas, Snacks, OV, JackRabitt...all were quality defensive players for us and helping us win a SB.

Sadly, that's one of the reasons why the offense now looks like it struggles the way it does but if Reese's past/history tells us anything it's that he will sign a defensive player this offseason because I don't believe we will Re-Sign JPP. I think everyone will sit down and think investing 34 mil per season on OV and JPP is too much and we can use that money elsewhere. I mean for 17 mil a season we can go out and get Reiff to play LT and Leary to play RG so we can move Flowers to RT.
