Default Name a free agent you would want in stripes

(Almost) Every free agent that gets brought up in here gets universally panned.

So just out of curiosity, I'd like to see everyone name at least one free agent you have your eye on.

I would honestly love to see a thread where free agency can be discussed without 100 replies saying simply "NO".

Like it or not, not all holes can be filled through the draft.

That will get us another 1st Round loss. We have to improve the roster. The draft gets us 1 starter in Year 1 if we are lucky.

It's no secret that I want Mike Wallace.

Goldson, Bradshaw, Jennings are also on my list. Bradshaw on a 2 year deal would be sweet.

I'd like 3 year deals or less so they are up when Greens contract is for cap purposes.

I have many
Safety I would like Jarius Byrd, William Moore, louis delmas, kenny Phillips, or dashon goldson all are significant upgrades to our safety position.
Linebacker Daryl smith, dannell ellerbe
Running back Chris ivory
Wide receiver none all too expensive for production

i disagree, respectfully. we only have glaring starter issues at 4 positions lb, s, ot, and de. the resigning of MJ and Smith clear up 2 of those and s and lb can be had in the draft. my mock in the fun with ratings thread clears every issue this team has, and i do not want wallace he will be to expensive for a guy who only runs one route and has trouble holding on to the ball

Safety-Pat Chung
CB-Greg Toler and Bradley Fletcher, yes both
LB-Erin Henderson

Hard to know who will be FA at this point, we can spectulate all day long, but for example MJ, Smith, Maualuga, Scott, Newman, Jones, Howard, etc. are all listed a FA, but we know some or most of those should be back in stripes. So do not really know who will be there or not, but I will still play, assuming all FA are released and no one is signed.

Outside of our FA I have my eye on:

WR Dwayne Bowe - would not mind Hartline or Amendola here in other scenarios either
FS - Jarius Byrd
OLB - Paul Kruger or Anthony Spencer

We should be able to re-sign our own and still get 2-3 of these types of guys in FA. This would make me really happy.

if we were to bring in top flight FA those would be the best options, however i dont believe we will go that route

Default Re: Name a free agent you would want in stripes

My list:

Dwayne Bowe- He's probably my fav FA wr. If we can get him for 8-10 mil/per, I'd be all for it.
Mike Wallace- I don't like him as much as Bowe, but he's definitely a weapon. I'd also offer him between 8-10 max.
Brian Hartline- If we couldn't land Bowe or Wallace at a reasonable price, I'd be cool with Hartline for 4-5 mil.

Reggie Bush- I'm iffy on signing a RB. I'd rather use what little free money we have (after signing our own) on a WR. If we went with a back, I'd want Bush over Bradshaw.
Chris Ivory- The only way I'd want him is if we'd still take a back high in the draft.

LaRon Landry- I like Landry, but I'd only want him if we plan on using our premium draft picks on other positions.

I pretty much just want to resign our own and grab a WR. Every other need can be filled via the draft.

If it were that simple, 32 teams would be going to the playoffs. Not saying I don't want an FA, but sometime the exact same team improves from one year to the next without major changes. Sometimes the wrong FA makes a team worse, even if they are talented.

Anyways, it is fun to speculate, but at the end of the day I'm going to trust the coaches.

bengals Re: Name a free agent you would want in stripes

In order of how much I want them...

1. Jairus Byrd
2. Victor Cruz (Yes, I would give up a 1st rounder for Cruz. No dire need for the first rounder, and he's better than anyone you'll get in the first round. Immediate impact starter. Plus NYG doesn't seem to have the money to pay the man. They're short on salary cap space. Green+Cruz+Hawkins/Sanu sounds awfully nice.
3. Chris Ivory (Not a pricey choice, but I think he'll be huge at RB and if signed, will be the Bengals starter before the season is over.)

Or I think they said they were a Steelers fan once. I heard they preferred Gold Star over Skyline anyway. Oh well, they're easily replaceable by *insert unproven backup player or rookie name here*.

Disagree.

Many of our better players still have a lot of growing to do. A few more could leave this FA period. Getting more experience for the first group and getting the second group back on the roster is important right now. Maybe more so than any year in the past.

Stability is important. It adds to consistency. Teams that consistently do well tend to have stability at more positions. Not necessarily better players at each spot, but they don't have a large turnover each year.

Jairus Byrd, Paul Kruger, Bradshaw or Bush(if a good medical staff determines Bradshaw's injuries are behind him, I'd prefer him over Bush), and Greg Jennings.
