So Timmons and Ant Brown have restructured and Ben's negotiating.  Should open up enough room to sign draft picks, hopefully get Keenan Lewis and other UFAs we want back in the fold, and a reasonable FA like Breaston.  Not sure about some of the guys like Colon and Harrison, the big cap/age/injury guys.

For the most part, I like the guys we've set up visits with:  S Kenny Vaccaro, OG Jonathan Cooper, OT Lane Johnson, OLB/Wild Card Ziggy Ansah; those guys are all on my wish list at some level.  Also met with QB Geno Smith and DT/DE Jordan Hill.  Don't know that I'd pick Smith R1 and pretty sure he's gone before R2; how would Hill even fit into the 3-4?  Have to be as another smallish DE.  Really need another one?  Pass.  Unless they're picking his brain about a different player.

Let me be the first this draft season to say...

40 faceplant aside, I like Shamarko Thomas as a mid round safety prospect.

Maybe Matt Elam if he's there in R2?

Woodley's restructuring.

Stillers sign QB John Parker Wilson.  That should fix that.

Agree on Elam and Shamarko, and there are a few other S prospects I like.  Kid from Fresno looks underrated.

Am I missing it, or have they made any decisions regarding Batch and Gary C?

It's not the most pressing need, but I'm hoping to see a decent backup QB or draft someone to begin developing. And I'm talking about someone other than John Parker Wilson.

They're playing wait and see with the geriatrics. 

Breaston, no deal.  Yet.
