Free agents are expensive at every position, they are actually cheaper on the interior than elsewhere if you compare the prices vs. talent at other positions. Question is if there will be any available that are worth the chase, without Nicks, the Bucs run game actually improved. Contrary to thinking, you don't need all-pros there, but we need to be more solid than we are right now.
Cause of the situation, I hope for us to have another aggressive free agent period although they did let me down not going for a center last year. We just have to find a couple of people in free agency cause there is noway we can fill all our needs in the draft without reaching. Would like to see one high priced FA brought in whether its OL, safety, or whatever so we can eliminate something.
You mentioned position groups, but really there isn't a position group on this team that couldn't use improvement or youth. Alot depends on Spencer, if resigned it will open up alot of options, if not then we are stuck with taking a pass rusher high cause its just plain so hard to find them later.
