I fully expect a complete overhaul for the staff though. Reid, Mornhinweg, Bowles, April, Mudd, and Washburn will all be gone. That's a ton of staff to replace in one off season. I have a feeling that whoever they hire will be given full control to bring in whoever he wants.
RB is about the only position on the team that looks solid going forward.
I don't think it will be quite that bad. They should have a ton of cap space assuming they get rid of some of their stiffs: Vick, Bell, Babin (already gone), Jenkins. That right there would give free up ~30M in cap space.
They are missing 3 starters off the offensive line. All they really need to do is get a RG/RT either in FA or the draft. Shouldn't be too hard. Unless all three guys are ruined (Peters could be), the offense should be ok. Plus, there are some guys coming on the market I wouldn't mind going after: Jake Long or Ryan Clady. They could also possibly go after a guy like Dwayne Bowe in FA to shore up the WR corp.
Defensively, the DLine is fine. They really need Safeties, LBs, CBs. They could go after a William Moore-type safety or even a Louis Delmas. And possibly draft a Mante Teo or Dee Milliner in the first. I'm not giving up on Asomugha yet. Maybe a restructure is in order for him.
