It is time for Ted to spend. That doesn't necessarily mean mortgaging the future. He can spend, short term without impacting the future ability. Bringing somebody in, does not mean, they have to be signed long term. Even a 1 or 2 year deal, can get the team what it needs to make push today without strapping them with cap concerns later.

And here's who we should go get along with Paul Kruger.

Should fix our defense up nicely. Imagine having a top 5 defense with our offense.

I know neither will be signed but this time of year is for this.

They will not get any stud FA for 1 or 2 years. They are at their peak or slightly beyond peak. They are all looking for the last big contract.

There is a huge risk on their part to get a short contract thus no incentive to do so.

Sure there is incentive for a short term contract. A Legitimate chance to win a Superbowl for one. Somebody signing a 1 or 2 year deal will make higher salary over those 2 years, than if they sign longer, those are normally setup to sound good, but have money that will never be earned.

Trades are another good way. Can bring in a player, that may have a high cap number on their current team, but their actual salary is reasonable, and that is all we would have to cover, we would not be hit with signing bonus hits because the original team eats that.

Dakota, that's exactly the point. Making, remaking our D into one of the best in the NFL. I think we will make some moves in FA this year. Add another D heavy draft, and Capers will have what he needs, and this should be some fun football to watch.

Ted's D heavy draft last year was in response to the overall neglect in adding personnel on that side of the ball. It is out of character, somewhat, for him to jump into FA, but I think he will. He was very successful early on with Woodson & Pickett.
