    I think in the 2012 season we would be a better team with Alex Smith starting, but I won't discount the possibility that in 2014 we would be better with Flynn. However, it seems like we're just assuming he has all this upside since he's only started 2 games and we don't know yet that he isn't really good.
    Charlie has yet to throw 6 TDs in his career, much less in one game?

    Charlie had a hard time getting 6 first downs in a game...

    So two outside additions and most here are happy with FA and we have $20+ mil left in available cap. What's next, Shiancoe, Graham, Wimbley?

    I think we'll see both of Shiancoe, and Graham, then a few more of our own guys. Would like to see Wimbley but Coach Cable would have a clear line on him so if we aren't interested then we had insight.

    At this point the roster is only weak at LB, unfortunately there aren't a lot of choices at MLB.

    I disagree - there are many options out there for us at MLB. Hawthorne, Lofton, & Tulloch are all legitimate starters in this league.

    I think after the Flynn & Jones signings, we've got about $15m in cap space available. You can assume around $5m for draft picks, so we have about $10m to spend on filling out the roster.

    In addition to starting MLB & WLB, we also need depth/backups at RB, QB, Leo, SS, OG, 5-tech, OLM, & MLB. Now obviously draft picks will fill most of those needs, but I wouldn't be surprised to see a few small signings between now & the draft. I hope we re-sign Matt McCoy. The guy was a good nickel LB for us as well as a special teams demon.

    Michael Bush & Jacob Tamme to visit this week. I like Bush as a complimentary back to Lynch, not so high on Tamme. I guess he would be more of a long-term fix at backup TE than Shiancoe would.

    Bush would be a great addition and Cable knows him better than anyone.

    And AO, *another* high profile free agent comes to Seattle! ;)
    High profile? We obviously have differing opinions of what a high profile player is... High profile QB's get a lot more than a 3 year, 26 million deal...

    He's not, Peyton Manning... ;^)

    HFFL, in terms of the cap Clayton indicated that after the Flynn deal we had north of $20 M but maybe you are right however we had more than $28 m. before Flynn. I agree about Matt McCoy who was playing very well before he got injured, but it was an ACL injury and that can take a bit to recover from. Each of the other areas, you mention "depth/backups at RB, QB, Leo, SS, OG, 5-tech, OLB, & MLB", may well come through the draft but I'd argue we have some guys on the roster now at SS and at 5 tech, it's the RB, Leo, starters at OLB and MLB where the need still exists.

    Am curious that they are kicking a lot of tires at TE and are now starting to look at the experienced RB field as scheme fits. JS will stay busy as long as he thinks it's an improvement over the present depth.

    I would be ecstatic if we signed Bush... It would benefit Lynch's production for us as well...

    I think we've got both starters at OLB already on the roster. Competition is needed, but I don't think the staff will look at big name FA's at that position or invest early in the draft.

    MLB is a whole different deal. IMO its the one gaping hole on the roster.

    I agree about MLB... I haven't heard much on the Hawthorne front (Been outta town for daughter's soccer tourney so i was out of the loop a bit)... Is Chicago still the front runners?
