Possible Players to Target
Here are some players that we should take into consideration. Not all are necessarily free agents.
Aaron Kampman - Has not been used properly in Green Bay's switch to a 3-4. He was awful in coverage, but looked right at home when he rushed from his usual end position. I do not expect the Packers to keep him with their great depth. He could come cheaper because of his injury.
Elvis Dumervil - Has played extremely well in Denver and will probably be tagged. It might not be worth it to pay him, but he would add a lot to our pass rush. There is a very small chance we will have an opportunity to grab him.
Osi Umenyiora - Is on the outs in New York and is extremely unhappy with his new defensive coordinator. It make take to much to get him, but we would be lucky to have him reunited with his former coach.
Aaron Schobel - He is contemplating retirement and is not happy with his situation in Buffalo. Has lost some speed, and has become more of a technician. He is still very capable, and put up nice stats in a Buffalo zone defense that puts all of the pass rush responsibilities on him.
Note - I would be surprised if Leonard Little didn't retire, but we should try to resign Hall he has played very well all season long.
Vincent Jackson - He is by far the best receiver that has a chance to reach free agency. I would be shocked if the Chargers didn't do everything in their power to keep him.
Brandon Marshall - There's no way he is going to be playing in a Broncos uniform next year, but the way they handle him will affect our ability to be in play. If he is signed as a restricted free agent we will not spend a 1st and 3rd to get him, but if Denver decided they want nothing to do with him then he is certainly an interesting option. He would instantly become our primary target and create mismatches for our other receivers.
Lee Evans - He is a good target in a bad situation in Buffalo. An interesting option to consider, although he is a deep threat in a similar mold to Avery.
Dwayne Bowe - I would like the Rams to seriously consider him as an option. KC seems to be frustrated with him, and he would be an upgrade over the receivers we have. Maybe we could trade Carriker and a pick.
Secondary Options - Antonio Bryant and Steve Breaston could be nice additions to our receiving corps.
Tony Scheffler - The Broncos have leverage on Brandon Marshall, but they might not want to sign Tony and risk having to keep him. There is a large possibility the Rams will be able to sign him.
Owen Daniels - Had to deal with a season ending injury, but I would be surprised if the Texans let him go he is too talented.
The Rams would be smart to add a speed back to take advantage of Steven Jackson's punishing running style. However it might be smarter to add a young draft pick.
Jerious Norwood - Has not had a good year and could come cheaper than the Rams thought at the start of the season.
Leon Washington - A very speedy player that can take it to the house on one play. He had a serious leg injury that might affect his future.
Chester Taylor - Has been a backup to AP for a few season and is a great pass catcher out of the backfield. He is getting old though and losing some of his productivity.
Willie Parker - He probably expects more money than he will be receiving. He was replaced as the feature back and we will need to make sure he is in the right mindset to be a backup to Jackson.
Feel free to add players and other positions to this list. I'm not sure who are possibly OLB candidates but we could sure use an upgrade over Lenon.
