    Here's the question. Do we try to re-sign him at the end of the year. I'm not sure if he is a FA or has 1 year left but a decision will be coming.
    The problem. We are going to have 2 huge contracts coming up in a couple of years for Rivers and Merriman and have a lot of big contracts already. You also have to prepare for Castillo in a couple of years as well. I know him and Merriman are in year 2 but you always have to plan ahead. Can we keep Philips or will he be too expensive. His position is easier to fill than the other 3 I mentioned because a solid athlete can rush the QB in our defense. Personally, I hope they make every effort to sign him to an extension unless he wants huge money. Remember, he probably is only a good fit in a 3-4 scheme, so it may keep his price tag down a little. With all of our blue chip and red chip players, the cap issues will slowly start to rear their head.
    Also, Dielman is a UFA this year. Decisions, decisions........

    Agreed. I am rather certain the FO is doing all it can to try to lock him up even now. My guess is his agent is prepared to wait out the season a bit unless A.J. offers the vault keys.

    I don't agree with the guy who said Phillips is replaceable. The guy has rare skills that another 3-4 team would go crazy for. Lock this guy up now.

    He is in the final year of a 3 year deal. He will be a RFA in 2007 and will get the 1&3(rnd draft pick) tender OR they will re-sign him to a LTD before the end of the year.

    If they only put out the 1 tender, someone will grab him.

    Can they tender two RFA in the same year? I ask because Michael Turner is most likely going to warrant a tag too.

    Yes I believe you can tender as many RFAs as you have on your roster.

    EDIT: not to mention RFAs on any other roster, but I think if the player is on a different team they call it an offer sheet rather then a tender :icon_shrug:

    Thanks brother.

    Had to show up to express a little displeasure about the red faced rat toothed freak show and his band of broke back donkeys.

    This game is huge my friend. I know you share my thoughts on this one.

    Sure you can !!!!

    Michael Turner will get a tender and not a TAG (Transition or Franchise Tag).

    TAGS are reserved ONLY for Unrestricted Free Agents UFA's (4th year players like Brees last year).
