    Love what's been done in FA so far. That gaping hole in MLB will need to be filled.

    Against a pretty damn good D....but keep in mind that we are getting Clady back and I'm sure Elway will acquire better OL depth

    We should have a very nice defensive rotation to keep all the guys fresh and hungry.

    Not to mention 'Ware-Wolfe' has a nice ring to it should both players bring it.

    Agamemnon. I can remember not too long ago how so many of us were bitching about our DT's and how we never addressed the position. Now we have 3 very solid DT's with 2 more versatile DE's that can step in (Wolfe and Jackson) and a better than decent #4 in Unrein. Jackson, yes...I love the kid, was graded very highly most every game with PFF and continues to show improvement. I think he takes the next step as we will ask that of him if/when Ayers and/or Phillips leaves. Q. Smith will need to step up as well and I do think we will draft a pass rusher (it is what Elway says he covets...pressure on his former position).

    Let's not get ahead of ourselves, though.

    We still have 2 DL spots, FS, MLB, and nickel and dime CB positions to solidify.

    I say we keep this up in the draft, early and often with the D. Peyton can handle the offense even without Moreno and Decker.
    Our DL is as solid as it gets. Not sure what you are getting at with that one.

    We have McCray and Smith in development.

    All we need now is...

    A CB, MLB and WR.

    I see us going WR in the draft.

    I wish we had 15 mill more because adding DRC + D. Smith would have filled us out completely.

    How about Moore?

    I agree with the development but Elway loves him some pass rushers. I think it's a lock that we will target all 3 needs you mentioned (CB, MLB and WR) as well as a DL in the draft.

    Currently signed as of now and we will surely have defensive draft picks and more FA signings (lower level of course except for Daryl Smith damnit):

    DE: Ware, Wolfe, Jackson (!), Q. Smith, Hall Davis
    DT: Knighton, Sly, Vick, Unrein, Fua

    WLB: Trevathan, B. Marshall
    MLB: Irving, S. Johnson
    SLB: Von, McCray (!)

    CB: Talib, Harris, Carter (gag), Webster
    FS: Moore, Bruton
    SS: Ward, Nacho, Q. Carter, Bolden (gag)

    Again, sign Daryl Smith and fill in DB holes with maybe another pass rusher in the draft and this will be the best defense since the Orange Crush days of my youth (if not better!)
    Boy, that is beautiful. Only visible hole is MLB. Add in one more CB (either Veteran FA or draft), sign Smith, and all visible holes are filled.

    I would like to see Q. Carter come back strong and compete at FS with Moore. Both are in contract years. Competition with two guys in contract years at one of the weaker positions in our defense is a good situation for us.
