Post Expect Youth and Not Paying Aging Players... But
darn would it be sweet to see Freeney lined up opposite Wake on passing downs even if just 1 year..

Listened to him yesterday on NFL radio, hes primed and ready. He expects to be a situational player as well..

The question, as always, is he an upgrade to what we have?

On 3rd down? I'd have to think so.

I like Olivier a lot, but he's not a dynamic rusher.

sounds like Ireland is expecting big things from Vernon in his 2nd year.

Yeah kinda what I was thinking..
Its just food for thought really. I dont expect it to happen, but we talk about a lot of players that will probably never be signed this time of year...

I know many want more pass rushers, so for a quick fix while we fill holes Freeney is an animal..

Dwight can't do it every down like he use to, but he still a handful. He definitely is on another level as a pass rusher compared to Olivier.

Sign Freeney for a reasonable contract and use him in the rotation as even with the younger guys getting into the mix, you can never have too many and historically plenty of Superbowl winners used a similar approach signing veteran pass rushers to help win more ball games.

I think of Charles Haley & Reggie White. Freeney can still help a team for sure, but again the price needs to be right.

Heck yeah it'd be cool to have Freeney on 3rd downs, if his contract is relative

I also think it'd be sweet to add Charles Woodson in a similar fashion

But I'm guessing both will want more money then we're willing to offer

I love Woodson. HOF bound. However, his career is winding down and he is not worth the money for a team that is rebuilding. He will want to go to a winner and might be the piece a team needs to win tomorrow. He would look really good as a Raven.

Woodson wants to go to a contender, he has already stated that. Freeney just wants to play football. However if he had his choice....
