    Living in Chicago, I've watched this kid play a little. He is entering his 5th year, and is only 26 years old. He didn't play much outside of special teams his first two years. In his third year, he saw most of his snaps as the backup weakside end in Marinelli's 4-3 and racked up a respectable 7 sacks. Unfortunately, due to injuries in the interior line of the Bears, he had to play defensive tackle most of last year. At 270lbs, I don't think this is his optimal position, and probably contributed to their terrible run defense. I think he makes a lot of sense as a cheap, young backup end with upside. I don't see anyone else in FA that matches this profile.

    I would be interesting what can be done with either guy. Marinelli did some pretty good work with less talented players last year. If they're coachable, either could improve, but I'd go with Ayers over Wootton for now

    I would rather have ayers but wooten wouldn't be bad for depth. Just depends on the money.

    Also why isn't anyone talking about Shaun Phillips.

    I would sign Wooten to a very modest contract only.

    I don't get the Ayers camp at all. He is dreadfully poor rushing the passer. I guess maybe on the super cheap, but something tells me he wants more than he is worth. I guess he wouldn't be a back SDE if he can set the edge...

    Wooton seems like a cheaper version of Ayers.

    Not really. They are about the same.

    Except one was overdrafted. I will let you guess which one that was.

    Cause Phillips is in his 30's.

    Yes he's still talented

    Yes Allen is also in his 30's

    Yes Phillips would come cheaper.

    Allen is still the better player and does deserve to be more coveted however.

    LOL never thought I'd see the day this forum would be banging the table for Robert Ayres. Robert Ayres!

    I'd rather a rookie DE get out there and try his luck than to overpay for an underachiever.

    Give me Murphy on the weak side and Martin on the strong side and we got ourselves something. We can get those two in rounds 2-3. Rd 1 should go to Donald.

    They will carry 4 or 5 DE. It appears that Crawford and Mincey will the SDEs and Selvie will be the WDE. That only leaves 1 or 2 spots for draft picks or some of the futures type players.

    We go DL in the 1st, 2nd and 3rd rounds and this place might explode.
