    I miss his, "no fly zone... you come in here, you can't do nothing" attitude too.

    Jk, but that would be awesome.

    Cap space top-line - $40 million with increase 2016-2017, $50 million if we don't pickup Okung's option.

    As Butler byNote commented there is a chance we could see Schofield at left tackle. I agree with this as he played solid filling in for Okung.

    I think we should sign Walker to a 1-2 year deal if he wants to stay in Denver. Walker was poised to backfill Malik's role. He did a nice job in rotation in 2015.

    Hopefully we can find a next level NT.

    Besides the line I think we need to look at ILB. Marshall was injured for the last stretch of the season - I think he'll be better next season. Reuben Foster probabky won't be available at #20 but would like to see him on our defense.

    Denver doesn't have the free agent and cap issues they had last year. I'm not sure they're going to sign high priced players, but they have the potential to this year, last year they didn't.

    I guess that might be besides the point because we don't even know if this defense is still going to feature a nose tackle in 2017.
    The defense will have a nose tackle, it's just a matter of whether it's a 1 technique (which they currently use and a base 4-3 would use) or if it would be a 0 technique (head up on the centre, which a true 2 gap 3-4 defense would use), 0 techniques who are good are hard to find, so they're valuable and will get big contracts. 1 techniques are a little easier to find, and get for more modest contracts.

    I heard a rumor we were gonna make a run at Kawan Short in FA if the Panthers don't tag him.

    Outside of O-line there really isn't any where we can throw money at on offense. We already have at the money positions with DT, Sanders, and CJ Anderson.

    I am not of the general consensus that Schofield is crappy. His first season was pretty bad but this he played pretty well at OG and wasn't horrible in his limited reps at OT either. He improved a lot so far since he was drafted.


    As far as the draft goes...imo, it's much easier to find a decent Dlineman in FA than an Olineman. Dline often rotate but Oline play every snap. I am on board for drafting Oline first...if talent is there. On the Dline, both Sly and Walker are FA and they may not re-sign either of them so that may become a huge need.

    As far as the Dline goes...it may come down to who the DC and HC are. That very well might change what kind of players we need.
    STOP these logical posts....the OP may go crazy Well said and I completely agree. There is also the potential off-season progress of Peko.
