Posted 14 Mar 2015Cromartie seems overpaid. He played good for half of last season, that's worth paying big money to? Hes getting old too. I hope its something where we can cut him after the first year if he sucks.
Virtually every player who moves in free agency is overpaid, but hopefully Cro's deal is structured in such a way that we can part ways after a year without having to swallow too big of a cap hit. Given Cro's age, I'd expect that is the case.
The overhaul that our secondary has gone under in the last couple days should mean that our defence is almost as difficult to pass against as it was to run against last year. It's not just two quality starters we have at corner, but Skrine should man the nickel position effectively and Gilchrist should be an upgrade on Landry.
It leaves us the chance to get younger at linebacker in the draft as the defensive line and secondary are now pretty much set, which is a bonus too.
Posted 11 Mar 2015I like the fact that he has played with Breno Giacomini, he is only 25, and he has upside. His previous issues were surrounded around his weight, not off the field stuff, which is controllable.
Seahawks said he was showing his best during the second half of last year. I would call this a 'bad' signing, I would just call it a solid move.
From the article you get the impression that he's the opposite kind of player to Giacomini, with his strengths lying in pass protection as opposed to run blocking. To be honest, pass protection was the offensive line's biggest weakness last season and hopefully Carpenter will help shore that up.
I assume Carpenter will slot in between Ferguson and Mangold on the left side, rather than moving to right guard? It will be interesting to see where Winters and Aboushi stand after this signing.
Posted 7 Mar 2015Moved on to who?
Exactly - Rolando Mcclain is the only likely free agent ILB who stands out and there would be no guarantee he would choose the Jets over other suitors. It's therefore better to pay slightly over the odds for Harris, who is a known commodity, than go with a potential rookie we draft. I think it would be wise for us to target a potential replacement for Harris in the draft in the early rounds, but I think it's good we haven't moved on from him.

Posted 2 Feb 2015He's got his ring, so bring the Street Thug home!
If nothing else, that game last night showed the importance of having top quality corners, with Revis and Sherman giving up just one catch each. And if we can bring back one of the best in the business, we'll be all the better when defending the pass.
