Stephen Davis- very good goal line RB, age is a question
Antwan Peek- underrated pass rusher who may be cheap since his playing time decreased greatly this season
Ian Scott- good 3rd option at DT assuming we dump Walker
Napoleon Harris- solid backup
Ken Hamlin- the one big FA I want us to pursue
Lenny Walls- Big CB with alright skill set
These are a few guys who I would like for us to pursue.
Most of those seem good, but I would add Carlos Emmons. He knows our system and would be a good insurance policy if Gocong doesn't work out. Kendrick Allen, I think thats what his name is. He is a big run-stuffing DT that we should go after if we wouldn't get Ian Scott. We could go after a big RB, but I would rather have any of the big backs in this year's draft (Leonard, Hunt, Ilaoa, Bush, Henry.)
I posted a thread yesterday, but that got deleted too. If anyone didn't see it or didn't find out yet, we re-signed Mikell and Juqua Thomas. Thomas's deal can't be announced until Friday because he earned the league minimum last year, so now we will focus on William James and Koy Detmer.
Kearse is not worth very much right now. He has uncertainty about his knee, he wasn't terribly productive the last 2 seasons, and his contract is an absolute bear. I would think he's worth no more than a late third rounder, at best. Certain teams could take his salary on, but they likely won't offer us much for their trouble.
I highly doubt we will trade Kearse, unless we could get a second round pick for him, which won't happen due to his age and injury status. Why would you want him traded? This D-line was beastly with him on it. He improves our whole defense and is valuable to the team as a leader.
He's an excellent player don't get me wrong, if he can match what he was doing at the beginning of the season next year then I certainly want him back, but his contract is huge and he hasn't lived up to it. Depending on what kind of offers we could get of course. Bsaza makes a good point he couldn't fetch a big enough offer to make the trade worthwhile, but we need to free up cap space somehow.
