    What do you consider “other team related need” vs free agency? Think you might have allocated too much to the former given that our rookie pool is currently less than $5M. A Clowney extension wouldn’t be a huge increase over his current base.

    But ya looks like they’re taking a different approach to FA, whether forced or not, and I’m okay with that vs breaking the bank for 1 or 2 guys. That’s assuming we round out the roster though. But I like the Fulton and Colvin signings so far.

    Edit: Just saw your other post on Clowney extension.

    Wasn’t that the same guy who posted that Texans were making a huge push for Solder just last night?

    Man I would push for Jordy Nelson. He’s a perfect wide receiver for Watson

    He's a guy that doesn't like to be challenged or questioned. If you do, he will quickly have you banned.

    Top 50 remaining FA

    1. Nate Solder – Easily free agency’s top LT. DEN, NYG, HOU, and NE all reportedly have interest.
    2. Kyle Fuller – Not technically FA; has Bears transition tag. 26yo CB coming off breakout season.
    3. Ndamukong Suh – Still playing at extremely high level at age 31. His market’s been quiet so far.
    4. Sheldon Richardson – 27yo DT with some off-field flags. Disruptive vs. run and pass on the field.
    5. Justin Pugh – 27yo OG/RT has missed 13 games the past two seasons to back and knee injuries.
    6. Dontari Poe – Massive NT shined on one-year, $8M Falcons deal last season. Turns 28 in Sept.
    7. E.J. Gaines – 26yo was difference-maker CB when in lineup for Bills defense. Long injury history.
    8. A.J. McCarron – Market has been cold. BUF or return to CIN may be best options at this point.
    9. Kenny Vaccaro – 15th overall pick in 2013 draft offers safety/slot CB versatility. Just turned 27.
    10. Adrian Clayborn – 29yo DL had career-high 9.5 sacks last season, although 6 came in 1 game.
    11. Julius Peppers – Turned 38 in January. Still effective situational pass rusher; 11 sacks in 2017.
    12. Josh Sitton – 31yo cut twice in last 3 years. Was PFF’s No. 6-graded OG with Bears last year.
    13. Jordy Nelson – Visiting OAK. If Raiders sign Jordy, they’re expected to cut Michael Crabtree.
    14. Morgan Burnett – Defensive chess piece has played safety, slot CB, nickel/dime linebacker.
    15. Bennie Logan – 28-year-old NT was signed to plug run by Chiefs, who struggled against run.
    16. Navorro Bowman – Finished last season strong in OAK. 29-year-old best suited for 3-4 ILB.
    17. Josh Kline – 28yo OG started in TEN & NE last 3 years. Reportedly nearing deal with Titans.
    18. DaQuan Jones – Run-stopping five-technique DE or NT in 3-4. Recovering from torn biceps.
    19. Eric Reid – 26yo played FS, SS, WLB for 49ers. Lost starting SS job to Jaquiski Tartt last year.
    20. Jack Mewhort – Recurring knee injuries cost Colts best OG 17 games last 2 years. Only 26yo.
    21. Ryan Jensen – 26yo can play all 3 interior OL positions. Started 16 games at C for ’17 Ravens.
    22. Austin Seferian-Jenkins – NO, SEA, NYJ, ATL all reportedly interested in 25-year-old tight end.
    23. Tyler Eifert – Missed 40-of-64 games (63%) last 4 years. Should accept incentive-based deal.
    24. Carlos Hyde – Tackle-breaking RB with passing-game limitations. Finally stayed healthy in ’17.
    25. Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie – Cut by NYG. Still quality slot corner at age 31. Visited WAS.
    26. Jerick McKinnon – Poor man’s Alvin Kamara with arrow pointing up as in-space playmaker.
    27. Zach Brown – Inconsistent but rangy 28yo off-ball linebacker. Has played 3-4 ILB & 4-3 WLB.
    28. Nigel Bradham – 3-down WLB with sketchy off-field past. Favorite of Eagles DC Jim Schwartz.
    29. Demario Davis – Three-down inside linebacker led Jets in sacks (5) & NFL in solo tackles (97).
    30. Morris Claiborne – Man-to-man corner plagued by groin, foot, knee, and hamstring injuries.
    31. Rashaan Melvin – Man-to-man CB had breakout ’17 in Indy before year-ending hand injury.
    32. Patrick Robinson -- 30yo journeyman had career year as Eagles slot CB. Long injury history.
    33. T.J. Carrie – 27yo has played outside CB, S, slot CB. Broke out as Raiders slot corner in ’17.
    34. Johnathan Joseph – 33yo CB gave up too many big plays last season. Wants to stay in HOU.
    35. Tre Boston – Solidified Chargers FS position with career-high 5 interceptions. 26 in June.
    36. Terrelle Pryor – Busted as free agent with Redskins after 1,000-yard season with Browns.
    37. Mike Wallace – Still quality role player at age 31. Led BAL in receiving yards last 2 seasons.
    38. Pernell McPhee – 29yo pass rusher cut by Bears. Has balky knees. Produces when healthy.
    39. Todd Davis – 25-year-old ILB excels vs. run, struggles in coverage. Broncos want him back.
    40. Preston Brown – Earned Bills 3-down MLB job in ’17. Has minimal playmaking production.
    41. Trent Murphy – Had 9 sacks in 2016. Missed 2017 with ACL/MCL tear & 4-game PEDs ban.
    42. Jordan Matthews – 25yo slot WR coming off knee/ankle surgery, career-worst year in BUF.
    43. Jay Bromley – 25yo rotational DT managed 2 sacks in 4 seasons (55 games) for the Giants.
    44. Rex Burkhead – Versatile RB/special teamer totaled 518 yards, 8 TDs in 10 games for Pats.
    45. Kendall Wright – 28yo slot WR led Bears in catches (59) & receiving yards (614) last year.
    46. Davon House – Big-bodied 28yo CB was up and down in 12 starts for last year’s Packers.
    47. Eric Decker – Should be available cheaply after pedestrian season in TEN. Still only 31yo.
    48. Delvin Breaux – Not tendered as RFA by Saints. Super-talented corner has battled injuries.
    49. Junior Galette – Disruptive situational pass rusher with checkered off-field/injury history.
    50. William Hayes – Was Dolphins best all-around DE before year-ending hamstring surgery.

    Carlos Hyde to Browns

    Jerick McKinnon to 49ers.

    McKinnon as a featured back will be similar to us putting Lamar Miller there.
