    Funny, last year you were whining about how old our line is. Now you're complaining that we didn't sign a 32 year old lineman.

    But today is Wednseday and he said his decision would be made on the weekend....he didn't tell the truth so he clearly was not a RKG.

    12 sacks thus far in a 5-year career?

    Ugh, no thanks!

    Save the money!

    To be honest? Believe me when someone tells me that line of to be honest I throw up the cross and shine it in his face. Do you not understand that the 2013 dline was absent beyond the starters? The starters who for a plethora of reasons did not show up. Ayers will rotate on a defensive line this year and that's is why we we have the draft. Certainly a DE will be selected.

    Yeah, we're not in the position of handing out that type of deal.

    Sort of glad we didn't.

    Absolutely. No reason to spend anything on talent that is not worth it.

    If Ayers is still sitting around at this stage in free agency, he is either asking for more than he is worth (or we should pay) or honestly, is just not very good.

    wait, this is crazy, so it can be done in 1 year?
    i was told that "the defense will take 2-3 years to rebuild"

    So you just pay a free agent to have them be a body? Wait, isn't that what Mincey and McClain are for? What could Ayers bring to the table? Serious question.

    All he is at this stage is a name that people recognize.

    12 sacks over 5 years tells me all I need to know.

    I really don't need to hear any numbers other than that. That may be an oversimplification, but it's true.

    So you rather pass on a player for under 1 mil per year and go grab a scrub found under my grandmothers couch to fill the front four roster. Are you mad because JA was not signed or just making your opinion on Ayers as a player who wont get snaps in the NFL. Again this players is not a savior signing but an adequate depth player which is needed if you look at what we have now...which is two players that actually play the position.

    It is not the most financially conservative way to do it, but they are in a totally different position. They were not paying Jay Ratliff dead money, going to pay Miles Austin and pay a CB millions either.

    That's the thing. When it comes to getting off the snap quick, you either have it or don't.

    Every player in the league works and wants to do that better. The ones that just got it, like Ware used to, dominate this league.

    That goes for both sides of the ball.

    Wait, so Ayers is going to cost less than a million a year? You must have a secret source. Please share.

    Don't compare 2014's potential line to the 1975 Pittsburgh Steelers. Compare it to the 2013 Street Bum Squad

    Read some reports on Ealy that state he is probably better off on the interior, either at 3-T in a 4-3 or in a 3-4. I do not spend my first round, middle of the round, pick on a player like that.

    Why not? It's EXACTLY what we did to find George Selvie, who was second on the team in sacks.

    And I'd like to see a link to wherever you got the information that Ayers is asking for less than $1 million?

    Thanks in advance.

    So you just affirmed you don't know about the player but are just eager to sign a body.

    I'm not. We made this bed, now just lay in it until May.
