We have talked a little bit about a few free agents. I swear Tullocks name is brought up every day. Nnamdi is obviously a favorite. Stepehen Nicholas has had some metions around here. Sense the draft is over I wondered what everyone had in mind for free agents now. Or if they had resonable trades they had thought about. I for one could see Shaun Hill being moved some time between when the NFL opens and kick off. Drew played very well and with all the teams that need an experinced NFL QB. A team like Tenn might be willing to make a fair deal for him.
So here is a few guys I'd like to see the Lions go after. Nnamdi would be a favorite no doubt but realisticly I see a team like Atlanta much more likely to get him at the end of the day. Also assume we resign out players like Houston.
Carl Nicks - If the Saints decide after they paid Evans so much they can't afford to keep Nicks at gaurd we must go after him. A great run blocker and a very good pass blocker Carl Nicks is one of the least famoust Saints of all. Which is what you want in an interior lineman. Set Peterman on the bench he makes a good back up and Carl Nicks takes our offensive line to new heights.
James Anderson- This ones intresting the strong side linebacker for the Carolina Panthers. A very solid linebacker who fills the stat sheet nicely. With the Panthers defense he is one of the few bright spots Beason being the other. Could be a quite yet successful signing if he leaves Carolina. Nicholas might be my first choice but James Anderson would be a very good consilation prize.
Chris Carr- Ravens Corner might become a free agent atleast with the drafting of Jimmy Smith I am hoping so. Very good in coverage and run support. He isn't a ball hawk but he gets the job done and with our D line I think thats about all you need. Other options might include Ike Taylor, Carlos Rogers.
My number 1 choice not being Nnamdi would be Kansas Citys Brandon Carr from Grand Valley state I am not sure if he is restricted or not but this guys is young and can play serious ball. I have a spot for the home guy from a small school as well and perhaps with Gunther as the DC might give us an edge in getting him if availible.
Anyones ideas or comments of course are welcome.
