Let's say that these players won't redo their contracts and or are free agents, so they are gone:
Jason Brown (OC), James Butler(SS), Justin King(CB), Jason Smith(OT), Brandon Gibson(WR), Fred Robbins(DT), Craig Dahl(SS), Donnie Jones(PT), Mike Hoomanawanui(TE), Gary Gibson(DT),Justin Bannan(DT) . I just think that we can do better with other players other than these because, some can't stay healthly, others can perform well during the season, some are just up there in age.
How about we resign these players: Brit Miller(FB), Danny Amendola(WR), Brandon LLoyd(WR), Chris Chamberlain(OLB), Darian Stewart(SS), Nick Miller(WR/PR/KR). What can i say both Brandon Lloyd and Danny Amendola were Sam's go to guys during the season, once Danny was hurt other than Greg Salsa no WR helped Sam out. I think that both Chris and Darian played very well during the season to come back and try to earn a starting position, if not then have them start on special teams. I think Nick Miller can become an explose punt returner and kick returner if given the chance. Brit Miller when healthly was able to open up some running lanes for Steven Jackson and should return since we are going to be a run first offense.
With all this talk about trading with Cleveland or trading with Washington. Let's say that when both teams are trying to discuss a trade that would land them RGIII, ( now here me out ) Seattle Seahawks come in with a better trade option and we TRADE with Seattle instead of Cleveland or Washington since Seattle also needs a quarterback. Seattle would get the #2 pick in the draft, we get their 1st (#12), 2nd (#43), 3rd (#76), 4th (#106) and 5th (#139) round picks in this years draft and a 2nd and 5th round picks in 2013.
#12 Rd 1 - Michael Floyd(WR) - Notre Dame (6'3 - 228) - Will be Sam's # 1 Receiver #33 Rd 2 - Zach Brown(OLB) - North Carolina (6'2 - 230) - Will be a stud Will LB next to James L.
#43 Rd 2 - Zebrie Sanders(OT) - Florida State (6'5 - 307) - Can play either LT or RT.
#66 Rd 3 - Doug Martin(RB) - Boise State (5'9 - 210) - He plays fast, runs low and looks natural in pick up blitzes on 3rd down
#76 Rd 3 - Mike Brewster(OC) - Ohio State (6'4 - 305) - Excellent in pass protection, good in run blocking.
#96 Rd 4 - Michael Egnew(TE) - Missouri (6'5 - 242) - Will Create mismatches on the field and plays stronger than he is.
#106 Rd 4 - Terrell Manning(OLB) - North Carolina State (6'3 - 233) - Has excellent speed, strenght, and quickness for the weakside LB
#139 Rd 5 - Nicolas Jean-Baptiste(DT) - Baylor (6'2 - 335) - Has good size & power but has to improve his pass rush
#160 Rd 6 - Brian Peters(SS) - Northwestern (6'4 - 215) - excellent tackler, good hands and can cover TE.
#192 Rd 7 - Bryan Anger(DT) - California (6'4 - 207) - Good strong leg and can great hang time on his kicks
