But Lavar Arrington is meeting with the Bengals tonite..
PFT & Kffl are reporting this..
Didnt Peterson visit with us the day he signed with the Seahawks?
No he canceled the visit..
Oh well, things are'nt looking good
I really don't think we will sign him. We simply don't have the cap room, especially considering we still need a starting O-lineman and are looking to add depth to DT and possibly a safety.
who cares. he will cost way too much$$$$$$$
Never saw this article.
I don't even care about signing Arrington anymore. He's going to cost waaaayyyy too much and is an absolute nut case. Draft Greenway in the first.
he did come and visit it was in an article i dont recall of honestly and LaVar to cinncy! great now ima cry after i stop crying abotu the resigning of Mckinney. i read a very old draft analysis thign and it said we did ag reat job on picking him up in rd 3. heh not so great now
The article posted says Julian never visited Miami. He cancelled.
There are a lot of hybrid OLB/DE type players in the first round that will be available right where Miami's pick is. Unless Winston Justice or Michael Huff falls into our laps, i think that's what we pick up as we move more toward the 3-4 alignment Saban is looking to install. Also, with his poor combine, Chad Greenway is likely to be available too when he wouldn't have before the combine. I think he would be a solid pick at #16 because he is a beast on the field and you can add strength in the gym, but its very hard to teach linebacker instincts. I would love to see Arrington here, but the market has been set by the (expensive) Peterson deal. Both linebackers are approximately equal in value and have the same agent. It seems totally unrealistic to think that Arrington would sign for anything less than 95% of Peterson's contract which would still be steep. Drafts build teams and FA patches them up. Saban is here to build.
I think if Arrington were gonna be a Fin, he would have been by now.
I feel we have other areas of the team that need more attention then LB right now, especially for that money. Secondary, Oline, DT are bigger IMO.
I'd rather just see us rebuild the O-Line and concentrate on the secondary. Arrington is supremely overrated.
agreed, Arrington is WAY overrated. As many plays as he makes, he also misses too many plays by gambling and giving up big runs. He is a hell of an athlete, but has no brains imo. You cant teach that either.
Best news ive heard arrington is an overpayed underachieverdude:
Greenway would look nice in aqua! Definitely may happen if we can land a starting caliber OL in the next month...personally, I'd love to see us grab Winston Justice or Max Jean-Gilles at #16.
i think that the secondary and oline have been addressed pretty well in free agency. DT is fine, i think that is why miami will take the best player available in the draft because the holes they had were pretty much filled LB is probably the biggest need right now if they are going to mainly play a 3-4
giles won't be a first round pick, no way miami picks him 16, and after carey i hate the idea of another hurricane olineman
um, Max Jean-Gilles played at Georgia....
i never knew petterson cancelled the visit...what an *** hole
um didn't winston play at miami? and giles from georgia is not going to be a first round pick
Winston Justice plays at USC, your thinking of Eric Winston.
And yes Max Jean-Gilles will be a 1st round pick.
your right, about the winstons. but no giles will not be a first rounder.
Truth is, we do not have the cap space to pay Lavar Arrington what he is sure to want after that huge contract to Peterson, also don't forget that this team is build on team concepts, not money hungry players (Example: Brees), so either Arrington will go to the Dolphins for a more cap friendly contract, or he will be a Bengal/Jaguar/Giant.
Lavar has shown in the past, he is about himself more then the team (Might be he had a problem with the Redskins and not his real personality), and I believe he will be again about Lavar.
The street for FA's in Cincy is one-way (and it's out). Mike Brown is way too cheap to spend the kind of money LA would want.
