The rest of the story....

Where do we go from here Colts fans?? Our 2 most obvious needs are at C and S, but we could obviously upgrade and add depth at other positions as well. Would you rather go for quality or quantity???? After the Nicks signing it looks like we have about $14M left to spend if we hold around $3M for rainy day and our drafted rookies. Let's look at 2 very different plans from here on out.....

PLAN A- Sign A. Mack (C) for $32/4 yrs, Cap hit= $8M; Sign C Clemons (S) $10M/3 yrs, Cap hit= $3.33M; Sign A Spencer (DE) $5M/2yrs, cap hit= $2.5M Total = $13.83M We get our safety, our center and an additional pass rusher.

PLAN B- Sign W Montgomery for $6M/2 yrs, Cap hit= $3M; Sign S Gregory (S) $6M/3 yrs, Cap hit= $2M; Sign C Rogers (CB) $2M/1yr, cap hit= $2M; Sign S Phillips (OLB) $10M/2 yrs, cap hit= $5M; Sign U Nwaneri (G) $4M/2 yrs, cap hit= $2M Total= $14M We get a quality center, safety, additional corner when Toler gets hurt, another pass rusher, a quality guard to push Thornton and for depth. I would even push for cutting Toler and going after DRC with the cash freed up from Toler's salary.

Point I am trying to make is I think we should go after Montgomery for our center instead of Mack and filling more holes with the cash. We then go into the draft with the ability to not draft for need but rather for best available talent. I know the above are guesses on $$ but I think they would be in the ballpark. Your thoughts?
