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.

Smokey: good night uffda.
uffda udfa: Wonder how Colts fans feel, and Mr. Irsay?
uffda udfa: Today, anyway.
Smokey: DEFENSE DOES WIN CHAMPIONSHIPS TT !
uffda udfa: Carolina will never be back to a SB under Cam Newton.
uffda udfa: Denver D just dominated the current MVP and the former this year.
uffda udfa: Cam for LVP in the SB. No character.
uffda udfa: Newton is a wuss. MVP? LOL.
uffda udfa: #VonFire
uffda udfa: People who have passion and expectations aren't A words. Accepting less than the best doesn't make you not one either.
uffda udfa: Sorry, Kevin...maybe you called Dakota an A word and not me? Had to be one of us.
uffda udfa: Marshawn Lynch announced his retirement in a cool way via twitter. What could've been in Green Bay, Marshawn!
uffda udfa: It's okay... you called me the "A" word. All because I don't tickle the ears. I get it.
uffda udfa: So someone like Buck deserves privileges because he's a better fan than me due to his flattering opinions?
68md: wet blanket ? He works his ass off to keep the place going for you ?
Smokey: Zero, Why are you such a wet blanket host ? A real SB "Chat" should have been a priority for this site. Wet Blanket strikes again.
Zero2Cool: BTW, I'm not saying you're an asshole. I'm stating a fact, that's all.
Zero2Cool: You don't get it. You confuse right and privilege. Assholes don't deserve privileges. Get it, got it, good.
uffda udfa: Talib playing a Burfict half so far.
uffda udfa: You have an R rated section on a Packers board. I think moving the guys you really don't want rocking the boat to their own forum is a great
uffda udfa: I think the same was likely said at KFAN when it was suggested they have a Packers show. I believe they still have it. I used to produce it
Zero2Cool: Seriously think what you're asking and do so before asking. Unreal.
uffda udfa: Aaron walking gingerly in that SB MVP introduction thing.
uffda udfa: May I suggest something? How about a "Packers Cynics" sub forum. A place for the Dakota's and me. I would exclusively post there.
Zero2Cool: One way or another, there is going to be a big change coming to PH.
uffda udfa: I don't want to be difficult but you do for some reason. I know you've been dealing with a lot.
Zero2Cool: Precisely what I thought.
uffda udfa: Nah, that's okay. I already asked.
Zero2Cool: If you want your name changed, you need to send me a PM with the name change. Thank you.
uffda udfa: Hey Kevin...can you change my moniker to: Unfrozen Caveman Poster? No more uffda udfa. Possible?
Zero2Cool: Today's Birthdays: Smokey (59)
