Also, Jerome Simpson should come cheap and is a legitimate deep threat and would be a boost in that department for the boys.
Would these guys be good signings? Also, would we be able to bring in Brandon Moore to play guard if we put money into these guys, specifically loadholt?
The way I see it if you could acquire those two free agents, we could draft the other guard and we end up with a much improved line. Thoughts?
IMO, Loadholt is a biscuit or a birthday away from being too slow to play OT in the NFL.
He gets by with a lot of holding. The refs would run out of yellow flags if a Cowboys player used his techniques.
Brandon Moore would be perfect, IMO. He played 4 years with Callahan as his coach. He would be a veteran RG next to a young RT like Parnell and should be an expert in Callahan's system.
At age 32, Moore shouldn't command a large contract. Hopefully, they can draft/develop some Guards that would be pushing him for the starting job by 2014.
