Yea, its official. Percy Harvin is my #1 acquisition at this point. 2.9 mil in 2013 is way more than affordable for a guy with this talent. He's been cleared to resume practice.... I can't imagine what he'd do in this offense.
Feel free to take the second part of my post as a general comment and not directed toward yourself. I am not attempting to bait you into a response and agree to disagree.
NFL rosters are zero sum. Whether it is draft picks or salary cap space to prioritize or spend on one position leaves less resources for others. So if our team's priority was landing a premiere (insert offensive weapon here) we could see the team package multiple draft picks to move up and select said player. While I wouldn't predict this that is one example of how adding offensive weapons could deter the team from loading up on defense.
Like Keith Burns from Denver
SemperFi despite this:
"16. Washington Redskins (27)
PB – 15th, RB – 19th, PEN – 9th
Stud: It was close, but Trent Williams (+19.7) had himself a heck of a year where he really became the player he was drafted to be. One of these guys that can contribute whatever play you’re running.
Dud: There’s no denying that Tyler Polumbus (-24.1) had some good days, but all too often he was the guy letting the line down. His performance in pass protection is something they should look to upgrade.
Summary: The line took a big step forward this year with Williams exceptional, Will Montgomery establishing himself as one of the better centers out there, and Chris Chester playing up to his contract. The rest of the line? Well, that’s why they’re not any higher. "
Ten to one there will still be numerous posts about how to upgrade our center. Every analyst and site has been ranking WillMont higher every year and every year he seems like a target for folks on this borad. . . sigh HTTR

I wasn't saying to necessarily sign Asmougha but, if the FO is rolling around FA with then intention of signing no one over the age of 30, they they are just denying themselves some possible value. That is like moneyball 101 in baseball. If a guy can give you a year or 2 of good football for a lower than market cost... you do it.
But the way i take the statement is you guys think the offseason is going to be primarily dedicated to upgrading defense -- if so, you are wrong, there will be a heavier concentration on offense. yeah I think that makes you think some. Count me among those who were thinking it would be primarily defense with a sprinkle of offense.

We just happen to disagree over a minor point of contention which imo makes us (me included) involved in what I believe to be a quibble. I'm not stranger to quibbling. I quibble with Martin and Skinsparadise all the time with no ill will.
My main issue was defining exaclty what we were about to disagree over.
And I welcome disagreement because it leads to discussion. This board would boring if everyone agreed all the time.

I believe the distinction you're making is too sublime to be meaningful. Imo either one of your interpretations above could be true at the same time with the exact same FA and draft results. Which gets back to my original view of the tweet; its so vague that it lends itself to several different interpretations which imo renders it inconsequential.
I have a question for you: what do you think the team will do if a WR and SAF have the same grade and both are available in the 2nd round? Is this different from what you thought before LL's tweet?
Imo if LL tweet means anything we should see an offensive moves made in FA; agree or disgaree?

Ryan Mundy with Pittsburgh would be my first choice for them getting our Special Team Coach

I recall from the last free agent period, LL is pretty good at times with leads as things get closer. I recall him for example talking about Josh Morgan as a target.
Personally, I am into fixing what I think is the obvious, safety, corner, and RT. Although if the team feels that Compton solves the RT issue, I'll trust it. You might recall from a debate we had about the team's Wrs, am not in love with our crop but I think its a good enough group when you got Garcon and Davis in the lineup. So I personally in the 2nd round, everything being equal would go safety.
