My choices would Austin Collie, Shaughnessy or Gilberry and Dorsey.
That would allow us to go full bore with BPA in the draft (with hopefully getting a DT in the first three rounds).
I'm hesitant to go after safety because I really think resigning Leonhard provides the best value here considering what a great leader he is and mentally knows the game inside out, plus Carter will be back next year and should be given a chance to take his starting position back from Adams.
I know what you're saying with Henderson/Grant, but my choice would be Ellerbie from the Ravens but it's no big deal.
I'm glad you are on board with the Austin Collie request! I think he would be a cheap low risk high reward player! I think we have plenty of strong side DE depth, but agree we should upgrade Bannan with a veteran FA. I like Knoghton, Dorsey, and Branch as three candidates. And I would draft Brandon Williams in the draft!
As far as MLB, with the news of Ray Lewis retiring, Ellerbe isn't going anywhere. I don't like the scheme fit either.. But I would take Larry Grant as my stop gap solution and the more and more I think about it the more I am intrigued by Henderson playing as a three down MLB.
