Anyone in particular in mind? Would you sign a 30 something Franklin? You think Lichty is ready for a move over to C and we could be targeting a G on either side?center and nose we need those two spots filled PERIOD. sorry i like the kid we drafted but im not comfortable with what we have at nt and rabach shouldnt even be invited to camp.
This is kinda what I was thinking but even signing 2 more guards, we could still use Rabach as a backup. Full time C? Not anymore but he would make a good 2nd string C.... I would actually bring in two free agent guards. Release Rabach and have Mongomery and Lichtensteiger battle it out for the Center spot.
Ryman, If, as has been rumored, we're going after Santonio Holmes, I can't help but wonder if Franklin might be considered too much of an extra salary hit even with boatloads of cap space money to use up. After all I've been seeing a pretty long shopping list of FAs that the Skins are rumored to be after. If we manage to nab both the Jenkins brothers, that would take care of NT for a while and likely be a less expensive option than Franklin. Along a similar line with your estimate of long term draft strategy I'm wondering if the crop of NTs coming out of college was just thought of as too thin in top-tier NTs and we're just planning for a better crop in the next couple of drafts.I would prefer Lick to rabach by far, and there are a lot of guards in free agency I would target, Im not sold on yanda but hes better than what weve got, evan mathis from the bungles could be a steal.
at Nose, im actually quite sad we didnt draft one earlier than the 6th round, our second pick is not gonna be able to play nose, mark it down, not even in a rotation he will have to play end. I think Franklin may be the best of a bad set of options and as long as he doesnt break the bank, I think we sign him and look to draft one in the next 2 years. I dont think we are looking to win this year, mayeb next year.
