@Ben Savage Ummm wouldnt you say that OLB/DE is a bigger area of need than WR?? From what it sounds like the coaching staff has a lot of confidence in Hilton, and may resign Donny Avery (ugh) remember Pep's press conference? In fact, i wouldn't be surprised to see them even address RB before WR in either free agency or the draft. Im sure they realize upgrading the O-line will help the run game, but they also realize that brown is injury prone and carter is really just for short yardage. They also probably have a not so fond memory of that second half of a game last season when ballard was literally the only RB that could play. The young receivers will develop in their second year and a better O line will help run blocking, we need a good edge defender and potentially another body or two for the stable of RBs, especially since we seem fond of the RB by comity.

@paulcareyjr @Kyle Rodriguez @smonroe @DougEngland Good point i hadn't considered him being across from Ware. But i looked back at his numbers and they have improved every year, and he has always played across from Ware. Also a correction, wikipedia was wrong, both espn and nfl.com say he missed 2 games last year (probably due to an injury). But that also means he had 95 tackles and 11 sacks in 14 games!!

@LovinBlue also the only player in the NFL last year with 90+ tackles and 10+ sacks
@LovinBlue says he missed one start in 2011 but i dont even know if it was injury related. he started all 16 games in 09, 2010, and 2012
@Kyle Rodriguez @smonroe @DougEngland Me too :)
@smonroe @DougEngland those would be some expensive guards.. even if we spend $20m on resigns and the draft (which seems pretty high) will will still have about 25m to spend. We could get Byrd for 8(or reed for less) and Spencer or Kruger for 10m and still have 7 to spend on a couple guards. Am I missing something?
