Default Splash Signings or Trades?

Ok, so it's a slow football day. I was just thinking ahead to the rest of the season and the coming trade deadline. Any ideas for splash signings/trades the team might/should make to improve our chances for the playoff run?

Richard Seymour? Trade for an impact safety? Oline depth? The team is obviously stacked but how could we improve the bottom of the roster to further improve our chances?

Only real area of concern to me is CB depth. Sounds like Chris Harris's concussion is minor and he should be back soon. Likewise, sounds like Champ is close to returning. But if for some reason both remained out for a while (after Jacksonville game), wouldn't be against trading for CB depth

Tony Gonzalas is only playing because he wants a ring, and the falcons are 1-4 and lost their best player for the season last night.. I wouldn't be surprised to see a ray bourque type deal with him, NE makes sense.

I heard Julio Jones out for the yr so Gonzos Superbowl run yr is looking pretty bleak. Roddy White hobbling, Jones out for yr, Steven Jackson injured, Oline not playing very well, wow what a nightmare season for them.

Ugh, that would be awful. NE is playing pretty good D, wouldn't want to face them in the playoffs if they got their O going.

Wouldn't be shocked to see KC involved as well.

The only real needs are OL depth, LB(we need another good one behind Wood or Trev) and probably a S upgrade over Adams or Bolden. But Bolden is just now learning S so it will take him a bit to get comfortable.

Funny thing is Steven Jackson still won't play in the playoffs in his career yet.

MJD. And yeah, I'm a Knowshon guy now, but if he costs us a 6th or 7th, for a 1 year rental? Hell yeah.

Yep, I almost wonder if we don't pull off a big time trade of one of our LT's at the end of the year.

Clark has proven he can play at an extremely high level.

Demarcus Ware injured and could be done. Lets see how Clark fares in a few more games before we say we don't miss Clady. What would be awesome is if he's not that great but because manning has the extra WR this yr, and the TE, he can get rid of the ball that much sooner and no outside pass rush has the time to get by even an avg NFL LT.

If thats the case maybe Clady comes back and we rape some team making them think Clark is a top end LT. Get a nice juicy first round pick for him.
