    Some leftover FA's that are Intruiging

    Back-up QB's:

    Dennis Dixon, Steelers
    Kellen Clemens, Rams

    Possible RB's:

    Justin Forsett, Seahawks
    Joseph Addai, Colts
    Jackie Battle, Chiefs
    Cedric Benson, Bengals
    Brandon Jacobs, Giants

    Possible WR's:

    Mike Wallace, Steelers (Trade)
    Braylon Edwards, *****
    Jerome Simpson, Bengals
    Plaxico Burress, Jets
    Steve Smith, Eagles
    Mohammed Massaquoi (Trade)
    Arrelious Benn (Trade)
    James Jones (Trade)

    Possible TE's:

    Visanthe Shiancoe, Vikings

    Possible OT's:

    Marcus McNeill, Chargers
    Demetrius Bell, Bills

    Possible OG's:

    Jake Scott, Titans
    Vernon Carey, Dolphins
    Chilo Rachal, *****

    Possible DT's:

    Albert Haynesworth, Bucs
    Luis Castillo, Chargers
    Amobi Okoye, Bears

    Possible OLB's:

    Manny Lawson, Bengals
    Leroy Hill, Seahawks
    Rocky McIntosh, Redskins
    Phillip Wheeler, Colts
    Jo-Lunn Dunbar, Saints

    Possible CB's:

    William Middleton, Jaguars
    Chris Carr, Ravens
    Alan Ball, Cowboys
    Zackary Bowman, Bears

    What I see as a few more realistic adds to a already nice off-season: Jackie Battle (RB), Steve Smith (WR), Vernon Carey (OG), Rocky McIntosh (OLB), Jo-Lunn Dunbar (OLB), William Middleton (CB).

    I'd be ecstatic with these additions, some depth, some starters. This would leave us with needs of :

    QB (1) backup
    RB (1) backup
    WR (1-2) starter
    TE (1) backup
    OG (1) backup
    DT (1) starter
    OLB (2) starter
    CB (1) backup

    Those are just main positions, of course we could use more depth at all positions too.

    Re: Some leftover FA's that are Intruiging

    If I were to go through your list and fill in the needs that you outlined, this is the way I'd go:

    QB (1) backup- Kellen Clemons; He has plenty of starting experience and is a viable backup and is already familiar with the organization.

    RB (1) backup- Justin Forsett; Statistically, Forsett fell off a lot this year with Marshawn Lynch emerging as a "premier" back. He has proved in the past that he is a good runner and is capable of being a spell back to get SJAX a breather from time to time.

    WR (1-2) starter- Arrelious Benn has peaked my interest since his days at Illinois. I havent heard anything about the Rams acquiring him, though; I could have missed something though. Anyone know what it will take to get him?

    TE (1) backup- Visanthe Shiancoe; the only option

    OG (1) backup- I like the options that will be available in the draft at G, especially at the top of round 2

    DT (1) starter- Albert Haynesworth; Signing Haynesworth would result in a no lose situation for the rams. His contract would be a 1 year incentive based deal. He will either come in and preform at a servicable level, or he will be unmotivated and will be cut.

    OLB (2) starter- Rocky McIntosh and Jo-Lonn Dunbar; Dunbar came for a visit on Thursday I believe, so there must be some interest there. And as for McIntosh, I just always liked him as a player, no real reason outside of that.

    CB (1) backup- Bowman

    If healthy Marcus Mcneil is very tempting the guy is a pro bowl LT and really help Tomlinson in his last good years in SD
