sorry, they don't NEED to sign any of them.

It would be nice for depth if they signed Jones. I wouldn't mind seeing Benson on the roster again. If they don't overpay.

I'm thinking none of them as well. Greg would be my choice if he wasn't completely priced out.

Since I am not a nimrod (all the time anyway haha) and would rather partake in fun instead of being snide, I am going to say Brad Jones. It was tough because I think Erik Walden is a good 3 OLB. I give the edge to Jones though because I think he's the better special teams player.

We should unquestionably resign Jennings. Sign him on a 10 year contract for $250k/ year. Sounds fair to me!

Make sure he knows that he will be responsible for washing his uniform also.

My Priority would be:

Jones - Provides depth at multiple spots.
Benson - Depending on price tag.. gives us a thumper between the tackles.
Walden - Up and down player.. inconsistent, but we could due worse at the edge in depth. The contract would have to contain little to no signing bonus so we could cut ties if a better option appears in camp. Personally, Moses should be higher on the depth chart than Walden at this point.

Grant is a fall back option.. Jennings would be a target if the market doesn't form that he thinks is going to be there. But honestly.. Jennings will land in Miami early in FA.. he gives them a guy that knows Philbin's system and brings a level of respect with him to a offense searching for an identity. Just makes sense for the Fins.

I guess saying "none" can seem kind of snide, but that really wasn't the intent. Brad Jones and Eric Walden occupied two very important positions in our defense last season, Walden for the past 2 or 3. The results of their play is, to me, a pretty clear indication we need far better personnel there.

Knowing Jennings is postured/planned to this point to be out, maybe Benson becomes the choice if we had to pick one. He ran well prior to injury, always able to pick up a couple extra yards after contact. But, now he's older and coming off an injury.

Grant, doesn't seem like the staff really wants to use him.

So, looking at our options, I'd rather go outside and spend those dollars on FAs from other teams that might give us improved play from what we had.
