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.
There is no way Miami let's Jake Long walk. Franchise him is a possibility I believe, but they most likely will get a deal done. Clady is one that could make it to free agency though. Also New England has Waters who didn't report to them, so maybe he would be a possibility to pick up after this year. Old he is, but good.
If we go for a wide receiver in free agency, I would hope for Mike Wallace, and trade away little Jackson. You might be able to get a 2nd rounder for him. Mike Wallace would be a perfect target for FOLES! if they still run the west coast offense next year. If you want to keep Jackson, throw him in the slot and see how he does there.
Also the biggest need this team has had since Dawkins is safety. They desperately need NFL caliber safety's in their lineup.
I would rather keep DRC over Asogwhathisname. Younger, cheaper, and has potential to still get better. Just needs to learn how to tackle. Funny how when we got him from Arizona, everyone said he was a physical in your face corner. Seems like he left that part of himself in the desert.
