  • None. We need a game breaker.

  • I want Alexander, but I think he will be a restricted free agent.

  • It's likely Darrius Heyward-Bey will be released by Oakland as a cap casualty. Not sure what his market will be like since he's looked at as a "bust" (and he is for where he was drafted), but he's turned into a decent receiver and still has a ton of speed.

  • I think we should address DL and OL first...maybe even nickelback and linebacker too.

    It our receivers are Rice, Tate, Baldwin and Miller at TE, it won't be the worst line up...

  • Louis Murphy could be a superstar with Russell throwing him the ball.

    I'd be very open to Bey or Murphy.

    The FO knows how to multitask...they don't have blinders on

    I would love DHB if he's cut. He would bring some serious speed to our WR corps.

  • I watched alot of Cowboy games this year and can say Ogletree is very good. He is dependable and catches everything thrown in his direction.

  • There is also Brian Hartline. I do not consider him a top tier WR option....maybe his stock has risen considerably this past year. He is not a burner but has decent size and speed (combine was about 4.45)

    This. I dont think we need to be spending money on a WR just to get a WR. We have plenty of good options. What we dont have is one guy who can take over a game and truely make the opposing D. Coordinator account for him. If we bring in a WR in the draft or free agency thats what I want. Not just to accumulate another body to add to the pile.

  • I don't really think Seattle signs a free agent WR, but if they did, it would probably be someone off the street ala Ruvell Martin. Someone dirt cheap.

    Danario Alexander had a hot finish to the season and Ogletree has a lot of ability, but none of these 2nd tier players are clear upgrades over Tate/Baldwin and would probably cost at least $4 or $5 million a year. Seattle might kick the tires on some of the big name WRs if their market dries up, but mostly, I expect Seattle to focus on defense in FA first.

    How many guys are there like that, though? I'm all for drafting a guy, but I mean, depending on the market, I wouldn't mind having a guy like DHB on the roster over Charly Martin and what not. I like Rice, Tate, Baldwin, but what if they get hurt? I want some roster churn at the bottom of that depth chat, mostly because I don't see a high priced FA WR in our future nor is it likely you find a guy who can start and produce at WR in year 1, at least not more than Rice and Tate.

    If it's 4 or 5 mill then I'm with you, that's too significant of a chunk of our cap for what I have in mind.

  • I'd rather spend the $ on a DT and draft a WR in the 1st or 2nd. However, DHB may be worth the look if he's cheap enough.

    Agreed. If we spend any kind of money on one individual, my guess is that guy will be a DT. Everything else gets addressed in the draft. We have up to 10 picks so I wouldn't be surprised if we packaged Flynn with a pick or two to get an extra high-end pick. My dream would be to trade Flynn and our #25 and our 3rd rounder to the Jets for their #9. With which, we grab Cordarrelle Patterson. This guy will be a superstar.

    Which is really funny because these draft experts that we make fun of because of RW were all seriously questioning the Raiders when they drafted DHB where they did. They all thought he was a good fast player just not elite like the high draft pick by the raiders indicated.

    So he has performed to expectations just not met Al Davis belief that he was a major player which lets face it many didn't meet Al Davis weird expectations
