If I Was... (Part 2)

I just recently read an article on SI.com about out-of-work NFL vets that are not getting much attention. It's brief but it makes some good points. Read it if you get the chance:

Now I'm trying a new angle. Instead of being a GM, I'm gonna be an agent for several of these guys. Here we go:

IF I WAS THE AGENT FOR...

*Derrick Brooks (LB), I'd be calling the Jacksonville Jaguars or the Atlanta Falcons. Both teams could use a little more leadership on the defensive side. and Brooks still seems to have some gas left in the tank. Brooks knows the Cover-2 defense and both teams run the Cover-2. Brooks would probably do better in Atlanta. Plus he gets to face his old team, the Bucs, twice a year! Great payback.

*Edgerrin James (RB), I'd be calling the New Orleans Saints. Bush has had some injury problems and James is a good choice as a #2 back. With a healthy James, that New Orleans offense could be balanced enough to help the team overcome some of their defensive woes. I'd even call the Cleveland Browns. Their feature back is Jamal Lewis. That should tell you how bad their RB situation is.

*Marvin Harrison (WR), I'd call almost 20 different teams. I already discussed Harrison a little bit in Part 1. I think the 49ers should go after Harrison ASAP! With the Crabtree situation not looking better, Harrison could help soften the blow for at least one season. I would also be calling the Bears, Rams, Vikings and Ravens. Here's my surprise pick: the New York Giants. With the loss of Plax and Amani Toomer, veteran ladership seems to be lacking. Harrison could also help out Eli for at least one season. This way their young but talented pass-catchers could get a little more seasoning and have a leader who could help them out in the long run.

 

Gimme some feedback.
