Dmac21bucs' Realistic 2014 offseason plan for playoffs


Andre Roberts, WR: 3-4 years.

This guy is our slot receiver moving forward and I believe he can produce as a #2 for a short time if necessary.

Jared Allen, DE: 2 years.

We need a guy who can get to the QB and even in a "down year" Allen showed he could do that with 11 sacks.

Charles Tillman, CB: 1-2 years OR Antoine Cason, CB: 3 years.

Years difference based on big age difference. Tillman would be a stop gap if we felt Banks, Melvin, and maybe a draftee could be ready to take over in a year or so, if not Cason can hold down the slot.

Henry Melton, DT: 3-4 years.

This guy is a stud plain and simple. He's was in the convo with Atkins, Suh, and McCoy before a torn ACL and I think with Lovie here and Melton coming off injury we can get him at a discount. We would be very disruptive inside and Melton provides good insurance for anything happening to GMC.

Luke McCown, QB: 1 year.

He can hold the clipboard and maybe give Glennon a little fight. If Glennon shows he can start, we can get a new back up next year, if not I think Glennon will have become a serviceable backup and we can look for our starter.
