Think he'll take a veteran minimum contract to be a deep backup?
I don't think so.
The problem with our Leo DE position is we can go three ways this year;
1. Sign a cheap fix like Freeney or Abraham and hope that Clemons fully recovers by Oct/Nov
2. Go after the best available DE in the first round of the draft
3. Go big and sign Kruger or Avril
The problems with solutions #1 or #2 is you're hoping things go as planned. Too many unknowns (can Freeney or Abraham play well and/or not get hurt and can Clemons recover. #2? Now we have two rookie DE's learning on the job.......that can be bad news for a team desperately needing sacks.
Obviously #3 is the best solution for 2013, but that comes with a heavy cost and cap hit. Which may mean losing important players next year.
