Do whatever it takes to bring in OL help. We were beat in the playoffs by OL. This should be number one concern. I don't care, as long as OL is improved.
Gaither is intriguing, veterans on the o-line could be preferred as they say it takes 2-3 yrs. in the same system to train a good OL. But we need youth, the Dallas OL is way too old & it showed bigtime in the playoffs last yr.
Yea, I don't see much out there, I liked Rolle but for the highest paid safety in the league? yea right. Plus traditionally big spending doesn't end up being what you think, NY wined and dined Canty and got all of a handful of plays from him last year. Boley was great in coverage but missed a huge chunk also.
I think we'll look at some guys once the first wave is done like you guys stated we did last year. The teams who had to make big signings had far less talent(Detroit), or on a playoff or bust type of season(Chicago).
None of the big players available made much sense to us honestly. Let's see if anything happens with OJ or if we decide to make an offer for any tendered players.

I guarantee that if someone picks Cam Newton in the Top 5 they will regret it.
Anyone else? Seriously, there isn't much of anything available.
I'd rather draft a safety than go Ryan Clark and the ends out there, are not any better than what we have. Lito wont take being a 4th corner, so that's out also. I really dont know where we'll go. Kicker actually does seem like the most likely signing.
Our coverage units arent even that bad so I dont think we'll be signing Osgood either. ST ace but, we really dont need to waste a spot on him.
A first-round tender makes it challenging for any restricted free agent draw interest from another NFL team, but that hasn't been the case so far for Indianapolis Colts safety Antoine Bethea.
An NFL source has told Scout.com that three NFC East clubs--the New York Giants, Washington Redskins, and the Dallas Cowboys, have been showing interest in the highly reliable and durable defender despite the tender. And two teams in the AFC East--the Miami Dolphins and the New York Jets--have been mulling over the possibility of signing the two-time Pro Bowl nominee to an offer sheet.
At the very least it confirms what the front office thinks about Safety being a need. I mean... we can discuss our needs all we want, and know that we're right, but it's reconfirming to know that what we think is what the FO thinks.
Netting a 2nd round pick would allow for us to get Earl Thomas. I'm all for it if thats the strategy...Ball and Thomas at safety is kinda a scary thought...but I could live with it. Couldn't be as unproductive as Hamlin Sensy I guess.
