No one said anything about spending big money anywhere.
I do think we will explore the FA market for the DL... But if we don't get someone like Desmond Bryant, I don't see why we couldn't leverage our draft picks plus Matt Flynn to try and get an impact DT in the draft like Sheldon Richardson and/or Kawann Short.
^That would put alot of pressure on QBs
Then we dont have to blow our budget and we can make smaller FA moves like Jared Cook, Johnny Knox and Tarvaris Jackson.
Kawann Short and Sheldon Richardson both? I don't see that as a possibility.
And, Jared Cook won't be cheap in my opinion.
A lot of the 4-3 teams are switching to 3-4 this year. There might be some solid under the radar pass rushers available. I would rather focus on that, Randy Starks, Henry Melton, etc in the free agency and draft WR Hopkins in the first round.
All speculation but I think we can net a 1st rounder if we trade Flynn our 2nd and 5th to a team like the Chiefs or Jaguars.

We would have addressed our need for pass rushing and explosiveness on offense (Marshawn, Tate, Knox and Jared Cook are all legit 4.4 burners) without breaking the bank.
