Should OL be our #1 free agent target?
The more I think about the upcoming offseason I am starting to think that our free agent budget needs to be spent on the OL and save the draft for WR and DT.
-Our OL is way worse then our WR core and free agents are far more assured of having an impact then a draft pick.
ex. Jared Gaither is a more sure thing then Derek Sherrod.
-Jay Cutler has been sacked over 80 times in the last 2 years and his health has begun to suffer with the concussion and the knee.
ex. We cannot wait for a rookie OL talent to become and impact player as it could mean another 40 sacks on Jay Cutler.
-The OL free agent class is much better then the WR class as Vincent Jackson has baggage and Sidney Rice has an injury history.
I think that our free agent money should be spent on the OL as Logan Mankins has a more positive impact then a Vincent Jackson. You cannot get the ball to Vincent Jackson when Jay is on the side line icing down his knee.
