    OK peeps.
    We're 2 days away from opening up...

    who do you want? who dont you want? and what do you want to get out of this FA period?

    For the eagles i want an OT or OG. Someone like Eric Winston to play RT, we can kick Herremans to RG and our line looks great, so long as Jason Peters is back.

    I want Dashon Goldson, we need a safety and he's as good as it gets. We cant go in another year with this secondary

    I want a CB and i dont want it to be DRC. A sure tackling CB like Sean Smith would be awesome. Nnamdi needs to restructure

    I dont want the big name offensive weapons, Bush, Wallace, Welker... wasted cap money and we've been the FA champions, and it didnt pan out for us. I want guys that are high charactor, no nonsense footballers

    If the eagles can nab a CB, OL and S in this free agency, it opens the draft right up for them. We can take a tackle @ #4 or a stud OLB.

    Be careful what you wish for

    Goldson is seeking to be the highest paying safety in the league, $8 million per season he's asking for.

    He's good, but he ain't that good. Hard hitting safety with range, but he does gamble a lot and takes bad angles at times. 49ers offered him $7 million per season last year and he declined it.

    This draft class is deep at safety IMO

    Steelers don't have cap room and are never too active anyway, might pick up some depth on minimal contracts once all the big names get snapped up. Hope to hold on to Keenan Lewis and Ramon Foster, probably 50/50 chance for both.

    noone, especially not someone for big dollars. our goal has to be working towards getting rid of this salary cap mess while drafting really well.

    Take Goldshon off our hands please, i'd rather someone who can also cover rather than just deliver big hits.

    For the Browns I wouldn't mind getting DE Cliff Avril.

    Martellus Bennett or any decent veteran tight end.

    We need a decent veteran corner or two as well. Seems to be quite a few around in FA.

    The Cowboys don't have the cap space to have a big shopping list. I think they will look for depth at a few positions.

    I'd be happy to get him as long as we don't pay him the money I think he thinks he's entitled to

    If Stokley retires I'd love to have Amendola in the slot or even Welker but the chances of that happening are remote.

    Boldin was just traded to the 49er's for a sixth round pick. Good pick up for San Fran. I thought he was worth more than that.

    The NFC West is going to be a lot tougher next season, with the Seahawks and Niners looking very tough already.

    One down! Foster re-signed according to Schefter, great news, now to wait and see what happens with Willie Colon, it's either a pay cut or be cut.

    Reports that 49ers will go after Ed Reed and Sean Smith.

    I think if we sign Smith, Carlos Rogers will be released

    Nothing wrong with having players who know how to win on your roster.

    NFC West just keeps getting stronger

    Niners are clearly in their SB window, they have some great young players on small contracts so they can't go out and get guys long term, it will just bite them on the arse later, adding quality vets is the best way to win a SB now and keep the nucleus of their side together long term.
