    By my reckoning, the areas where we need the most help are DE, LB, OT, TE, and DB.

    These are the guys I think would be worth getting, from either scheduled UFA or announced cuts (not including guys I've heard have already signed somewhere):

    DE:
    Matt Roth
    Jared DeVries
    Mark Anderson Anything there? Lightning in a bottle in Chicago?
    Jarvis Green Patriots yes, elsewhere no?
    Anthony Hargrove (loved him when he was here)
    Raheem Brock


    LB:
    Mike Peterson Kinda old, but good.
    Pisa Tinoisamoa Small, but can run
    Dhani Jones Entertaining fella
    Nick Barnett
    Kirk Morrison
    Stewart Bradley
    Stephen Cooper
    Kawika Mitchell (see Anthony Hargrove)
    Jamie Windorn
    David Thornton
    Rocky McIntosh

    OT:
    Langston Walker Better than anyone we have today
    Chester Pitts See above

    TE:
    Kevin Boss
    Bo Scaife
    Des Clark Old
    David Thomas

    DB:
    Abram Elam
    Drayton Florence

    Any thoughts? Agree, disagree? anyone I missed? There are guys out there who play positions where we are OK but not much above average, but they're for another day. (I'm looking at you, Andy Levitre.)

    I'm struggling not to lose my mind. Many able free agents to be had. Many holes to be filled. Some money to sign them with. Signs point to... Brad Smith? Were we in need of an average receiver and kick returner? LB's and TE's please. Please. Otherwise another season of rooting for the draft pick. Luck-y us?

    I'm not as depressed as you guys. Smith could be useful, Barnett's a good signing. Plus, the D seems to be shutting down Levi Brown in training camp. All signs are positive until mathematically eliminated is my credo!
