          I don't know about best. But just to add some input.

          Dallas's biggest need going into the offseason was backup QB and a mauler RG.
          They landed Davis who they got ripped for but he was a local guy and actually has good remarks from playing inside vs. outside.
          Brad Johnson as a proven player to spot start if needed. Not to mentor Romo.
          We resigned our C Gurode before FA...and got a steal money wise which many people don't realize.
          We also resigned our RT Columbo who was argueably our best offensive line player for a 2 year 1 million dollar deal.

          In the draft we got out pass rusher that Wade "needed" for our defense. Another high character guy.
          Marten can play 4 positions along the line..gave us a swing tackle we lost in Fabini.
          Future LT in Free which was a overlooked need by most.
          Got out future kicker and current KOS in Folk.
          Landed our nickel replacement for Glenn in Brown late in the draft.

          As far as assessing needs in the offseason...I would say dallas has had an A. Maybe not the best...but definatly top 1/3 of the league.

              The Browns had a pretty good offseason, along with NE, SF, ATL, Detroit, and the Jets.

                      The New England Patriots have had a phenomenal offseason.

                      Call me a homer if you will though, but I feel the Browns had the best 'overall' offseason.

                      Ask any Browns fan that has followed this team. Since 1999 we have struggled to put even just a quality offensive line on the field. The Tim Couch saga was a disaster in large part because of the lack of importance placed on the guys up front. The David Carr era in Houston is eerily similar. If you draft a QB high, you better have a solid line in place to protect your investment. Both franchises chose a QB with their first pick, failed to address the OL, and suffered the consequences.

                      This offseason we signed Eric Steinbach, who is one of the premier OGs in this league and is still just 27 years of age. His presence alone will make the OL better as we have gotten putrid play from our guards in recent years.

                      Then we hit the grand slam and drafted Joe Thomas. Someone who is dubbed as a bookend left tackle who will start for the next 10+ years. When you receive comparisons to Tony Boselli, you're a special player.

                      LT: Joe Thomas
                      LG: Eric Steinbach

                      I know I speak on behalf of all Browns fans when I say, "Oh....my.....God."

                      And then we just happened to draft a franchise caliber QB in Brady Quinn, someone who is about as NFL ready as a college QB can be. Mentioned in the same breath as Carson Palmer and Tom Brady.

                      Phil Savage, I thank you. In just a matter of months you have changed the entire dynamics of the Cleveland Browns. We've been suffering for years, but I think this is when it all comes to together and we finally bring the Browns back to the level where they should be.

                            I am a Pats fan and we did have a great off-season. We added a great deal of talent into our WR corps (Randy Moss, donte Stallworth, Wes Welker, and Kelly Washington) to help out Tom Brady. We needed a safety and we picked up versatile Brandon Meriweather who can play both spots ad also corner. We needed a DE/OLB so we picked up perhaps one of the best 'tweeners in the game, Adailus Thomas. But we really failed to address one of our biggest needs, ILB. Tedy Bruschi shouldn't be playing football anymore, you can see it every time he steps on the field. He is old and worn out, he had a great career but must end it before he really hurts himself. Vrabel is solid, but he is getting up there in age and wear as well.

                            The draft was really a confusing ordeal. We traded away 2 out of our 3 day 1 picks. We used our first pick to take Brandon Meriweather, which was great. We also traded our 4th for Randy Moss, which appears to be a good move. The rest of the draft was basically used to add depth at already strong positions and to let the new players sit and develop.

                            Hopefully the team has enough ammo to gear up for a super bowl run, the Patriots still have a bad taste in their mouthes from the way last season ended.

                              Detroit improved . . . their only significant subtraction was backup safety Terrance Holt.

                              I'd say they are top ten in terms of most improved this offseason, but I still don't see us winning more than 6 games in 2007.
