Acquiring Talib or Grimes in free agency would be great. Grab Big Star in the draft, (unless they think Bilikudi can fit the bill at nose-tackle), and switch to a 3-4 (Tarver's specialty). ShoNasty, Houston,and Carter are quite capable of putting pressure on the QB in the right system. McClain also played much better in this system in college, if they decide to keep him around.

They would most likely go with talib or DRC low risk high reward

Wow, there certainly are a lot of veteran free agent cb's out there. Lets scratch the top 5 name of the list or so due to cap considerations.

What are some "sleeper" or 2nd tier Cb's or de's we can snag?

a sleeper, not on this list reccomended a short time back at a good price (cb) greg toler. az cards. i still don't mind t porter but better yet, b grimes of the falcons. i don't want to say i like cox because it sounds awfull (lol), so i guess i'll say talib from the pats. we have to get at least one good veteran to help the system.

(db) woodson is set to be released but he says he wants to go to a team that has a chance to got to the superbowl.'we don't have that chance" (lol), but it's understandable why. he's getting old! has a year, maybe two, but he pisses me off anyways from the time he left here in oakland so, good luck to wherever he goes i say! and no i probably would not take him if available. he comes with attitude. he's a little feisty! and not for good football reason!

Yesss we should definately sign one of those CB' S!!! Then trade are pick down to 8-15 and use are second for maybe a FS or OT..., and with are 1st round we can draft a goood player!. Like a DE or NT. How does that sound ?????... I think that would gooood!
