mattyb143224 Posted May 4, 2021 Share Posted May 4, 2021 Plenty of solid options out there regarding Free Agency. With a few signs, could really improve some holes. We still have $29M in cap space [prior to signing draft picks], and could create another $5M by releasing LG Alex Lewis [likely after drafting AVT and signing OG Dan Feeney from Chargers]. Grabbing Nelson, Ingram, Turner, and Westbrook would immediately make our pass rush a strength, and our corner depth pretty strong with great competition, and if Westbrook can return to full health give us one of the deeper WR groups we have had in years. Players to Sign: 1. CB Steven Nelson [3 Year Deal] - only 28 years old, should make priority to sign, was a cap casualty for the Steelers, but a top 15 CB in the league and would immediately become our best corner. 2. EDGE Melvin Ingram [2 Year Deal] - another older guy at 32, but still can get after the QB and would add to a nice rotation of pass rushers for Saleh. 3. OL Trai Turner [1 Year Deal] - another younger FA at 28 years old, can play center or guard, provides depth, replace Alex Lewis at a cheaper cost. 4. WR Dede Westbrook [1 Year Deal] - a young promising player at 27, coming off a major leg injury in early 2020, should be able to get him relatively cheap given health uncertainty. 5. QB Nick Mullens [1 Year Deal] - knows the system comes from San Fran, should be cheap, potentially add another vet if available but provides some depth. Projected Depth Chart: QB - Zack Wilson, Mullens, Morgan RB - Coleman, Carter, Johnson, Adams WR1 - Corey Davis, Keenen Cole, Josh Doctson WR 2 - Denzel Mimms, Dede Westbrook, Vincent Smith WR 3 / Slot - Crowder, Moore, Berrios TE - Herndon, Griffen, Kroft LT - Becton, Edoga LG - AVT, Turner C - McGovern, Feeney RG - Van Roten, Clark RT - Fant, Edoga DE - Carl Lawson, Kyle Phillips DT - Sheldon Rankins, Fatukaski, Marshall DT - Quinnen Williams, Franklin-Myers, Sheppard DE - Melvin Ingram, Curry, Huff OLB - Cashman, Jermien Sherwood MLB - Mosley OLB - Jarrad Davis, Hamsah Nasirildeen CB 1 - Steven Nelson, Bless Austin, Jason Pinnock CB 2 - Bryce Hall, Justin Hardee, Corey Ballentin CB 3 / Nickle - Michael Carter, Brandon Echols SS - Lamarcus Joyner, Ashtyn Davis FS - Marcus Maye, Hampton Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
