Tomorrow's going to be a whirlwind, and I imagine that by the end of it I'll be feeling a bit dizzy. Regardless, here's what I hope our team looks a bit like by the end of the week. Note this is only 45 players. The depth for the defensive line is a crapshoot, and with the expanded roster there's no way in hell to guess what will happen with the third stringers.
Carson Palmer (Cincinatti Bengals)
Tavaris Jackson (Minnesota Vikings)
Vonta Leach (Houston Texans)
Robert Gallery (Oakland)
Anyone but Colin Cole
So for big new faces, I'm looking mostly at offense. Carson Palmer would be a dream come true. If he can do what he did last year with two aging smacktalkers, he can perform some real magic with Williams and the Youngsters (band name TM).
To protect him, two more big signings in Vonta Leach and Robert Gallery, to go along with a bunch of Seahawks draft picks. Leach is a real difference maker, and while I'm somewhat wary of Gallery, even his worst-case scenario is better than what we've got now. This setup could give a huge boost to the running game, both this year and in the next half-decade. That of course assumes our draft picks on the line both this year and last stay healthy and get good.
The last signing would be either Ray Edwards or Osi Umeniora. Osi would be awesome, but you can't win every Free Agency battle, and I'd rather have Leach, and would take a high draft pick.
This should leave plenty of cap room, so perhaps another big defensive signing could still be in the works. That said, i'd rather they came in well under the cap so they can keep adding next year.
