Williams for me. Veteran presence on that D-Line.

bannan.....smart, tough player from a defense that knows how to play on the other side of the ball

Going Jamal Williams simply because I hope with a year off he'll be back to 2008 form. A dominant NT makes a 3-4 great. I don't think we would have paid him like we did if we didn't have a good idea.

Williams, but I'm pretty happy with all of them.

Williams is my favorite. I think he will make the biggest impact of those we have picked up so far. All of the d-line pickups look like good ones though.

Trying to keep hopes in check, but the Williams signing is a real potential defense-changer.

Love what we've done so far, and expect more good things soon.

I went with Bannan. He's young and just hitting his prime, and he can play multiple positions. I'd encourage everyone to listen to his interview at vicandgary.com, he speaks highly of McDaniels and Martindale - and what they're trying to build on defense.

What I like about all of these signings in they improve the overall talent of our team. It seems a common thread has been talent vs. team and what wins. I do believe talent is important, but not necessarily having the best individual player but teams that are very talented 1-53. Whether Alphonso Smith becomes a baller or a bust is irrelevant to the signing of Jones, IMO. It simply improves the overall depth of our team. The goal should be to put together the best team we can: players who fit the system, have talent and play well together putting the team first!

i don't see how you can vote anything other than "All 3 DLinemen"

williams, we are desperate for a NT, and we got one. Hope his knees hold up.

Seriously, I like the moves sans JJ Arrington and Nate Jones. The Nate Jones deal, I am not sure about...but I don't get the JJ Arrington signing...Lamont Jordan replacement?

Together, they make a very good rotation along the Dline.

Coupled with the guys we already have, the wear and tear will be less, and perhaps we can turn this into a run stopping defensive line that excels in the second half of the season and post season.

Look for us to pick up one or two real pass rushers from the draft. If we can get a real threat from the draft that can come off the edge from both two or three point stances, teamed with Doom and the boys, we can really bring some heat.

Very good, veteran players that already know how to play in the NFL, and wont take much to coach up to speed concerning our defensive scheme.

I like all the signings, but even more as a total package.

DL Justin Bannan - Don't know about Williams, but Bannan is one heck of a run stuffer. Did anyone see our run D in the Oakland and KC losses?

Nathan Jones, especially for his special team abilities. He and Bruton are gonna blow heads off!

I love all the DL signings, but went with Bannan because I think he's the most versatile, and has the most left in his tank.

Any way you look at it, it's been another very impressive FA period from the new FO.

Bannan, to me he has the highest ceiling in a best case scenario and does the most to address a weakness, Williams to me is hopefully going to be a Dawkins type player who comes in and contributes a lot over a short period of time before yielding the spotlight to someone else, Bannan could potentially be part of something good for several years.

I voted for Bannan. There's a reason why he got the most money from us so far.

I said Williams, but recall a day when I thought our DL problems were over when we added the likes of Sam Adams, Lional Dalton, Daryl Gardner, et al.

Color me cautiously optimistic.

Again, just like last season it isn't any one signing it's the combination of them all. The addition of any one of these guys is not a game changer but the combination of all 3 could be.

JJ Arrington? Didn't the Broncos have him last year and then cut him?

Yeah, when the hell did we sign Arrington?

Williams. He is healthy. He is a big angry man. He is a hungry veteran. He will play with a chip on his shoulder for two key games next year at the very least.

I am not sold on Bannan. It's hard to tell whether he made the Ravens D good or if the D made him look good. Still, better than what we had.

I chose Bannan. Hard to pick between him and Williams, but bringing Bannan back to CO and knowing he's filling a huge need for us as a run stopper is great.

I'd like the Williams deal more if he was a year or two younger, but... I still like it a lot.

I like Bannan - a Colorado guy, from what I've read a good locker room guy. Started for the Ravens D... big boost on a weakness.

I picked Williams, but I'm pretty sure I'll regret it. At his age and with his miles, I honestly think he may end up missing half the season due to injury or playing poorly due to age an nagging injuries.

Jamal Williams last though one season it will be a good pick up but he is not long term help .
