too far? sorry
Harvin and/or Bush won't be here, too much $$.
Look for other younger up and coming guys in FA or draft who will fit our offense.

Anyone have ESPN Insider access? I'd love to see the rest of Polian's thoughts on the different tiers of Free Agency... He ranks the 2013 FA's by A, B, and C and accounts for injury history, games played, etc.
But yeah, Harvin and Garcon would be nasty. The defenses would be cross-eyed from that much speed, and you'd pretty much have to keep safeties deep every play, that extra gear is enough to make even the smallest mistake an instant touchdown, which of course means Morris would get to post another All-Pro year.
I imagine after this year Harvin will be asking for a contract similar to what we gave Garcon. Honestly, if we can get him for a reasonable traded pick, do it. Maybe add someone like Stedman Bailey in the 3rd for 3 superfast WRs. Easily doable too if we cut Moss, his contract would pay for both Harvin and Bailey, and leave about 2M left. The key problem is the pick we'd have to give up for Harvin, anything higher than a 4th and I would get antsy.
You wouldn't give up a 4th for a guy who's young, developed, and already proved his first round worth in the NFL? I can guarantee you will not find anyone in the 2nd or later in this draft who has the skillset Harvin has. Tavon Austin is skilled, but does not have the size and he's the most comparable.

Now is it just me or is Davis not even listed under TE. Not sure if that's good or bad. Probably good that no one remembers him, hopefully keeps price down.

Thanks DogofWar1, much appreciated brother!
This list is all kinds of jacked up and I can't even begin to note where I disagree with him... He doesn't even have Keenan Lewis listed under CB's or Chris Houston? WTH
My guess would be that Shanny takes a speedster later on like he always does in the draft. Someone who fits our system and needs, even if they aren't well rounded. He's not called the runningback whisperer for nothing.
As for Harvin, I'd be fine with a 4th, it was anything higher than a 4th I'd be concerned with because:
- only 1 year before he enters FA, so I'm wary of sending a higher pick for what might end up being a 1 year rental
- unless our FO rates WR higher than certain other positions, or addresses S and RT in FA, we'll need that 2nd and 3rd to get first year contributors for our needs

My favorite thing is that they ran another article where they consulted PFF who cautioned against a bunch of the guys they list in As and Bs.
I see no reason why Minny would let Harvin go anywhere (other than because he has a **** attitude). Getting him for a 4th rounder? We should do that every day of the week and 6 times on Sunday. The dude is a flat-out baller.
In a land of freedom we are held hostage by the tyranny of political correctness. ~RGIII~
Thanks for the list, DogofWar, very much appreciated.
